Rapper DDM of Bond Street Social performs at Best of Baltimore party

A lively crowd was both entertained and entertaining during City Paper’s last hurrah. The 40th and final “Best of Baltimore” party featured energetic entertainment – here the crowd rocked to Bond Street Social – and loads of local flavor.

The afterparty at the Crown included a touching tribute to the staff and legacy of the treasured alt-weekly, which is closing its doors soon. A number of staff writers took to the stage to read some of the articles they’d written for the publication over the years…

…as friends and supporters somberly listened.
