This locally renowned concert hall was converted from the historic Towson Theatre, which was a single-screen movie house. Brian Recher and his brothers Steve and Scott reopened the building as the Recher Theatre in 1996. Boasting some of the finest acoustics in all of Baltimore's live scene, the Recher Theatre hosts local and national recording artists of varying genres: rock, metal, punk, reggae, jazz, hip hop, blues, tribute bands and others. Crack the Sky reunion gigs are always the rage, along with some of the coldest beer in town. The Rec Room, a side bar (and a rear party deck), is considered one of the weekend hangout spots in Towson.
