While it may not be operating right now-mostly due to some incidents with Baltimore police raids-the BFF held some of the best DIY shows and parties Baltimore has seen in a while. Conveniently tucked in Remington, it was home to raves, punk shows, color-themed parties around the holidays, and all-inclusive ragers. The tight space (only packing in around 200 people) all but forced everyone by some cosmic power to dance uncontrollably until the orange tint of sunrise started to peek out. It was also a magnet for popular out-of-town punk-rap acts like RatKing, Antwon, and Cities Aviv. R.I.P.? We hope not.
