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. His string-heavy country tracks 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.
