Black tie with a twist

Do you have an outfit hanging in your closet just screaming to be worn? You know, that fabulous and outlandish thing you bought in a state of delusion -- the one that you've never worn because it's just too wild, or too dressy for your night out with the gang from the bowling league. Well, now's your chance to give those fine duds a chance to be seen -- at the annual Black Tie/Blue Jean Ball to benefit the American Heart Association. The official dress code for the event is "black tie creative," which means whatever you want it to mean. You could wear a tuxedo jacket and blue jeans like the name of the event suggests, or you could come up with your own slick creation. So, ladies, get out your faux leopard-skin coat, red-sequined ball gown, feather boa and silver-metallic go-go boots. And gentlemen, nothing says "class" more than a man wearing a leather tuxedo, or a fine Italian suit with swim fins. Go wild, kids!

Black Tie/Blue Jean Ball, 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. June 4 at Harborview's Pier 500. Tickets are $50 in advance; $60 at the door. Call (410) 296-2491.

Torch-songs thrills

Cabaret singer Andrea Marcovicci returns to Center Stage for a night of sultry love songs from World War II. The night of music, entitled "I'll Be Seeing You: Love Songs From World War II," will include songs such as "The Last Time I Saw Paris," "The White Cliffs of Dover," "Moonlight Serenade," "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To" and "White Christmas." These are the songs that men and women sang, danced and romanced to in the war-torn 1940s. By the end of the night, you could find yourself in love again.

"I'll Be Seeing You: Love Songs From World War II, 7:30 p.m. June 16-18 and 9:30 p.m. June 18 at Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert St. All tickets are $27. Call (410) 332-0033.
