Where -- 20 Market Place, Power Plant Live, 410-244-8854

Notable -- Sporting five bars and three themed food kiosks, not to mention a huge array of more than 40 video monitors, it's hard to find a bad seat in the house. Three levels of floor space also allow plenty of elbow room.

Vibe -- Come early to grab a drink, a plate of tenders and a prime seat while the getting's good. When the music starts, it's usually standing room only. Power Plant is especially buzzing on Friday and Saturday nights, and you can stick around afterward for a bit of club- and bar-hopping.

What to wear -- Casual, but cool. The interior of the venue is a tad too hip and swanky for the everyday shredded jeans and holey T-shirts, no matter how in style they may be at the moment.

Crowd -- Depending upon the night's main attraction, attendees could include anybody from the golden oldies and country bumpkins to teeny-boppers and college-townies.

Music -- Coming shows include Ryan Cabrera, Better Than Ezra, Static-X, Bob Weir and RatDog, Institute with Gavin Rossdale, the Robert Cray Band, Rob Byer, Perpetual Groove, Disturbed and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
