CCAS in the Baltimore Sun -
DIY spaces are fertile grounds for Baltimore's arts, music scenes
"In what was once the garage of a narrow townhouse on Maryland Avenue, Charm City Art Space celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. That's a significant milestonefor a nonprofit spot where the punkiest of punk bands can perform before packed crowds that can also take a look at art hanging on the walls in between the head-banging."

Two Years In a Row! Thanks City Paper.
"Best All-ages Show Space"
Charm City Art Space
"No booze or drugs at Charm City Art Space, just a lot of loud punk and metal and otherwise heavy music with some frequent doses of folk-punk and assorted weirdness. The no-substances policy isn't to be taken as some sign of lameness or whatever. CCAS wants a safe place comfortable for everyone. Believe it or not, a bunch of drunk people isn't a terribly benign thing. Shows at CCAS are also out early, which is kinda great in a town where a show done by 1 a.m. is over early. Finally, the space is just about the epitome of DIY—legit and somewhat aboveground, sure, but collectively run and booked. Also, the space is fantastic and big enough while not losing that dingy basement vibe."

CCAS wins "Best All-Ages Space To See Bands" from Baltimore's City Paper!
"Kids like a bunch of shitty music. Do you even know what passes for punk these days for most of the 13-to-17 set? Trust us, it's ghastly. But you'll find no feathery hair or crabcore at the Charm City Art Space, Baltimore's bastion not only for loud 'n' angry youth but for the city's true-school punk community. In this Station North garage, you'll also find no booze, drugs, or corporations. And shows are early, which is a very good thing for kids in school—or people with jobs."
