SOUND CHECK

This Week's Highlights

May 24, 2007

Huey Lewis & the News -- Time-warp back a few years and check out popular '80s rock band Huey Lewis and the News at Pier Six on Monday. The band, known - even by the younger set - for its songs featured in Back to the Future, plays a mix of older hits and newer songs in its shows, staying true to its blues-rock roots. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Pier Six Pavilion is at President Street and Eastern Avenue at the Inner Harbor. Tickets are $20-$45. Call 410-244-1131 or go to piersixpavilion.com.

Raheem DeVaughn -- Maryland-raised, Washington-based singer Raheem DeVaughn is an R&B musician with a soulful voice whose hip-hop-infused sound seems to have taken a page from D'Angelo's book. DeVaughn will be at the 9:30 Club, 815 V St. N.W., Washington at 9 p.m. tomorrow. Tickets are $22. Go to 930.com.

Insane Clown Posse -- Don your black and white face paints Wednesday and check out Insane Clown Posse at Sonar. Though the hip-hop duo, known for its painted clown faces and distinct onstage persona, is loved by some and despised by others, everyone seems to agree that the group is unique. Sonar is at 407 E. Saratoga St. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $30. Call 410-327-8333 or go to sonarbaltimore.com.
