Switchfoot -- Rams Head Live / Since the release of its 2003 double-platinum hit The Beautiful Letdown, Switchfoot has been steadily proving itself.

Saliva -- Recher Theatre / Hard rock meets grunge tonight at Recher Theatre with gold-selling band Saliva, BMI Pop Award winner Crossfade and Local Buzz Rock Award nominee Ligion. Mixing live instrumentals, unique harmonies, melodic tones and a few rapped verses, these bands have created styles that are equally unique and diverse. They perform at 7 tonight at Recher Theatre, 512 York Road, Towson. Tickets are $20. Call 410-337-7210 or 410-547-SEAT or go to tick etmaster.com.

Kitt, who has acted alongside Sammy Davis Jr., Nat King Cole and Sidney Poitier, most recently enthralled fans as the voice of Yzma in both installments of The Emperor's New Groove. She will be on stage at 8 p.m. Saturday at Weinberg Center, 20 W. Patrick St., Frederick. Tickets are $30-$80. Call 301-228-2828 or go to weinbergcenter.org. [SHANISE WINTERS]
