His setup is simple - an acoustic guitar, a little percussion and a soft, airy voice. But with this sparse arrangement, singer/songwriter Jose Gonzalez crafts dark, haunting songs that sound fresh and timeless at once. His shows (he plays the 9:30 Club on Wednesday with Zero 7) are just as straightforward. On stage, Gonzalez sits still with his guitar and goes through the songs, lost in his music. No crazy flailing or walking around, or even rocking back and forth much. Just the music.

Lt. Brad Snyder holds the acoustic guitar in his arms for the first time, strumming a few random chords, then moving into a sampling of Neil Young. The sounds take him back to the nights when he was deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan and sat around a fire teaching fellow servicemen songs like Tom Petty's "Mary Jane's Last Dance. " But there was a time when the 28-year-old Florida native and Baltimore resident wasn't sure if he would be able to play the guitar again. Snyder was left blind in September 2011 when he stepped on a bomb during a mission in Afghanistan.

Although hardly on the level of combat reporting, music reviewing is not without its perils. Over the years, I've been threatened by musicians, their managers and their girlfriends. I've been denounced from the stage, and ridiculed on the Internet. Once, a review of mine was reprinted in the Barry Manilow Fan Club newsletter, and I got hate mail from across the country for months. But I don't think I've ever before had to worry about a singer raising my tax assessment. That was before my editors came up with the idea that I review O'Malley's March.

First was the heavy rain, forcing Maryland State Fair attendees awaiting the Band Perry to take cover in the grandstand of the racetrack and delaying the popular country band's set for more than an hour. Then, seven songs into the show Saturday night, flashes of lightning sent Kimberly Perry and her brothers Neil and Reid, along with their four-piece backing band, searching for cover. Following another delay of about 20 minutes, it was announced that the remainder of the show would be canceled, drawing a smattering of boos from the disappointed crowd.

BABY IT'S YOUThe Beatles (Capitol EP 58349)Here's a sure sign that Beatles fans are in for quite a year: A new Beatles EP to help usher in the 25th anniversary of the band's break-up. "Baby It's You" leads off with a cover of the Shirelles oldie, taken from the "Live at the BBC" album, then follows with three previously unreleased BBC performances. Two of the songs, "Devil in Her Heart" and "Boys," are remakes of girl-group hits that show off the Fab Four's debt to R&B vocal harmonizing. Though "Devil" is a feature for George Harrison, the real interest lies with John Lennon and Paul McCartney's supple backing vocals, especially McCartney's lithe falsetto.

All he had was an acoustic guitar - no band, no dancers, no props. And he was casually dressed in a baseball cap and loose-fitting jeans. This was not a folk concert by the way. But Anthony David, an R&B upstart from Georgia, still managed to move the stylish crowd at Washington's Lincoln Theater on that chilly night last November. His voice - rough-hewn yet buttery in some parts, slightly reminiscent of Terry Callier - was full and engaging as he crooned self-penned, down-to-earth ballads of lust and heartbreak.
