An Die Musik

Though it has been hosting shows for only about a year, An Die Musik lures a wide array of nationally and internationally touring classical and jazz artists. There's a record store and lounge downstairs and a small concert space upstairs.

Where --409 N. Charles St.

Call --888-221-6170,410-385-2638

Web site --andiemusik

Notable --Instead of folding metal seats, An Die Musik opts for plush pink armchairs. If you sit in the front row, you can prop your feet on the edge of the stage and soak in the performance.

Vibe --Intimate. The upstairs seats 75 people and feels more like a parlor than a concert hall. Even the chairs in the last row are only 50 feet or so from the stage, and a good number of the acts prefer to keep the show acoustic.

What to wear --Keep your getup toned down for shows here. High heels loudly click and clack across the wood floor. Find something in the comfortable middle ground and wear it.

Crowd --Usually on the older side. An Die Musik's patrons are a mix of jazzheads, classical music lovers, Peabody students and other musicians.

Music --Coming shows include the Scorch Trio, Randy Weston and T.K. Blue, Jennifer Blades and the Monument Piano Trio.
