How's this for a challenging role? A young girl travels through time with her younger sister. Oh, and she's determined to kill God. Still, Lauren Saunders was down for playing Lucy in Single Carrot Theatre 's "A Beginner's Guide to Deicide. " "I was attracted to this play because it challenges a lot of constructs - religion, gender, power and more," said Saunders, 25, who's a fellow with Single Carrot and also works for the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance. "It afforded me the opportunity to explore things as an actor that I had yet to explore.

A quick scan of this year's Virgin Mobile FreeFest reveals the type of lineup we've come to expect from the annual concert at Merriweather Post Pavilion: Smart, on-the-nose and balanced -- as long as you're the type of music fan who takes pride in genre open-mindedness and staying in the loop of new faces and sounds. Taken on a case-by-case basis, the lineup (which is fluid, meaning there could be more artists added) is all over the place: There's house hero Kaskade, feeling-himself-on-Top-40 crooner Robin Thicke, EDM-mashup dude Pretty Lights, chillwave posterboy Washed Out, polarizing surrealists MGMT and the Avett Brothers, the popular folk-rock band trying to convince people a banjo can still be cool.

When they started touring a decade ago, North Carolina folk band the Avett Brothers nickel-and-dimed their way through 22 cities. Traveling in a four-door pickup truck, they didn't play fancy venues; mostly just Irish pubs and sports bars. But since getting signed to music mogul Rick Rubin's label in 2008, the band has upgraded to better digs. In 2009, they opened for Dave Matthews, and earlier this year, for John Mayer. On their own headlining tour, they've been selling out 1,000-seat theaters like Boston's House of Blues and Tennessee's Rylan Auditorium.

After a four-year hiatus, the HFStival, one of the largest rock festivals on the East Coast in the '90s and early 2000s, returned last September with a lineup of forgotten '90s alt-heroes such as Third Eye Blind, Lit and Everclear. The festival's return was a bigger deal than its time capsule of a concert, but this year's HFStival — with headliners the Avett Brothers and its focus on indie-rock over nostalgia — should put the focus back on the music. It's another step of bringing HFS, which returned to airwaves at 97.5 FM last month, back into the conversation of alternative-rock relevance in Maryland.

Recovered yet from FreeFest? (Or! Hampdenfest!) Even if the festival was only a day, the weekend felt like a long one. Maybe that's what being around all those Deadmau5 fans feels like. What did you think of the festival this year? Were there too many bugs ? Not enough porta-potties? This week, there are a couple of more festivals, but they are decidedly low-key. You probably won't find many glowsticks at the Pigtown Festival . And, Merriweather itself will host HFStiva l, which returned last year after a four-year hiatus.

When G. Love started tossing around ideas for his new album, he found himself revisiting his roots as a young blues lover kicking around Philadelphia. The album, "Fixin' to Die," pays tribute to the raw sound of Delta bluesmen while turning up the volume a bit. The title track, a cover of the Bukka White tune, is recast as a righteous acoustic stomper. Ditto for the cover of the Paul Simon song, "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover. " It sounds like a stretch, but G. Love settles into a comfortable groove and rides it for most of the album.

How was HFstival this weekend? Were there as many bugs as during FreeFest ? Did the Avett Brothers make it at least worthwhile? There are no festivals in Baltimore this weekend, but there are a handful of excellent shows. And Deadmau5 is performing in the area again. I'm looking forward to The Walkmen at Merriweather, who are opening for Fleet Foxes. Elsewhere, there is: Moby at the Hippodrome (of all places), Big in Japan at Ottobar, Matmos, a Height with Friends tour kick-off show, Wilco and Brad Paisley.
