"You start a band and you get to play guitar solos for as long as you want," Heumann said from a corner of a coffeeshop late last month.

When Secret Mountains released its long-awaited first album, "Rainer," in February, the band seemed poised to make a leap to higher prominince in the indie music world. The shoegazed-inspired Baltimore sextet had already garnered positive write-ups from online tastemakers Stereogum and Pitchfork. Even the New York Times joined in the praise with a concert review in 2011. The band achieved all of this without a full-length album to its name. But lately, things have been relatively quiet with the band, and last week, singer Kelly Laughlin announced to The Baltimore Sun why: She had left Secret Mountains right before "Rainer" was released.

You could count the members of the crowd on one hand, singer/guitarist David Heumann recalled, but one of them happened to be Bettina Richards, the founder of indie record label Thrill Jockey. She liked what she heard. "There literally was nobody there but me," Richards said. "It was great. I totally was hooked. " Richards signed Arbouretum to Thrill Jockey.

Creed will be performing at the Warner Theater in Washington April 24, it was announced Tuesday. The band will be performing "Human Clay," their insanely successful second album, in its entirety, front to back, according to the press release. Tickets, starting $45, go on sale Friday. Save for Scott Stapp's pukey rendition of the national anthem at a Florida Marlins game two years ago, Creed has mainly stayed quiet in recent years.
