Few artists in any medium have attempted to make the suburbs of Baltimore seem bright and dreamy, but Tom McBride convincingly pulls it off. The Boston-bred, Maryland-based singer has crafted a nostalgia-tinged collection of Americana tunes on his latest release, Morning in Glen Burnie. String-heavy country tracks like “When You’re All Mine” sound like they might be a better fit for a West Texas honky-tonk than the Black Cat, but McBride performs at the 14th Street NW rock club tonight to support a good cause: He’s headlining “Night Sessions,” a benefit for N Street Village, a D.C. nonprofit that supports homeless and low-income women. Fellow folk act the 19th Street Band also performs, as do electronic artists Ryan Mosel and Josh Odmark, who will steer the evening from concert to dance party. Tom McBride performs with the 19th Street Band, Ryan Mosel, and Josh Odmark at 8 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW. $35–$40. (202) 667-4490.
