Made popular in the 1930s and ’40s, gypsy jazz is in the middle of a renaissance, and Baltimore’s Michael Joseph Harris (left) is bringing it to the stage in two formations. His traditional band, Hot Club, relies on the classic repertoire, while Ultrafaux is guided by modern inspirations and original compositions and brings in the swing in the spirit of guitarist Django Reinhardt. “This is social music in its roots,” Harris told the Baltimore Sun.

Thursday 5/26. Free, 8pm. The Garage. 250 N. First St. thegaragecville.com.
