A large swath of downtown Baltimore's west side would become the city's third state-designated arts and entertainment district, and the state's 20th, if Maryland economic development officials approve a city application designed to strengthen the area. The proposed Bromo Tower Arts and Entertainment District is a 117-acre tract that would join districts in Station North and Highlandtown as city areas in which individuals and businesses would be eligible for tax breaks for arts-related activities and investments.

The Baltimore Development Corp. said Thursday it was reissuing a request for proposal to develop three properties, including the former Parkway Theatre, one of the most prominent landmarks in the city's Station North Arts and Entertainment District. The BDC in 2009 confirmed a proposal for the Parkway Theatre project by Cormony Development and Seawall Development Co. But due to "changing conditions" over "considerable periods of time," the city chose to renew the RFP process, according to M.J. "Jay" Brodie, president of the BDC. Samuel Polakoff, head of Cormony Development, said the BDC never told him and Seawall why it was no longer supporting them as developers.

Pleased with their plans to transform an old downtown movie theater into an arts center, Westminster city officials are considering creating a designated arts and entertainment district to draw more arts events and resident artists to town. "Our vision would be to have a section of town with an arts trade strong enough to have people come from out of town to take advantage of it," said Common Council President Damian L. Halstad. But after reviewing the sizable application manual for Maryland's newly created arts and entertainment district program, Halstad said last week that Westminster would not be among the first municipalities to apply for the state program.

The sprawling complex at 2324 Boston St. has a spotty record. Canton Arts and Entertainment opened there in fall 2009 and fizzled out just several months later. It's not hard to see why — parking is difficult to find and it's tough to fill up such a large building. But Marc McFaul, who oversees Ropewalk Tavern, Stalking Horse and Delia Foley's, has decided to give it an overhaul by dividing the space into two bars with distinctive personalities. Open since June, the refurbished venue consists of a Southwestern barbecue bar and restaurant, Dark Horse Saloon, and Finnegan's Wake, an Irish pub. The two bars are decorated in accordance with their concepts; one was busy while I was there, and the other one wasn't; and they both offer exhaustive wings menus.

'Jersey Boys' The 50-year career of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons — the biggest group in rock and roll, at least until The Beatles came along — is chronicled, celebrated and otherwise revisited in this exuberant Tony Award-winning musical. Actors playing each of the four original members — Valli, Tommy DeVito, Bob Gaudio and Nick Massi — take turns telling the band's story, as it rises from obscurity to massive popularity, followed by dissension, infighting, and then acceptance and rediscovery (the trajectory of pretty-much every rock band, come to think of it)

Downtown Bel Air won the state's designation as a Maryland Arts and Entertainment District on Thursday, making the Harford County seat eligible for economic development and promotion assistance. The state Department of Business and Economic Development awards the designation to "hubs of culture and creativity" in Maryland, officials said. The state tourism office helps draw visitors to the districts for the theater, art, music, dining and shopping offered. The Maryland Council for the Arts has recognized 18 other districts, including Havre de Grace — which earned the designation a few years ago — and Station North in Baltimore City.

Artscape expands and becomes a little "greener" this year. But the 27-year-old arts festival, the largest, free public event of its kind in the country, maintains a flavorful and eclectic musical lineup.

The marquee names on the Main Stage, at Mount Royal Avenue and Cathedral Street, include Grammy-winning R&B sensation Ne-Yo, reggae legends the Wailers, rock veterans Joan Jett & the Black Hearts and the alt-rock band Rusted Root.
