Reporter Chris Kaltenbach reviews a concert by Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band at 1st Mariner Arena November 25. Funny thing about reviewing Bob Seger in concert: his song titles pretty-much write the review themselves: “Old Time Rock & Roll,” “We've Got Tonight,” “Rock & Roll Never Forgets,” “Night Moves.” If only he had recorded Carole King's “You've Got a Friend,” my work would be done. Thirty-two years after last playing 1 st Mariner (it was known as the Civic Center back then)

It's semi-finals time! Monday night's episode of "The Voice" kicked off the semi-finals with two performances from each of the remaining five contestants. The semi-finals weren't only about competition, but also dedications and homecomings. Each contestant got to take a trip back home to see those who voted for them and have supported them week after week in the competition. (Hello Texas, Massachusetts, New York City and Oklahoma). Kicking off the show was a performance by coach Usher.

THE FIRE INSIDEBob Seger (Capitol 91134)Bob Seger has always been good at nostalgia, both in the way his husky, care-worn voice conjures a world of lost opportunities and past glories, and in the ease with which his music recaptures the simple power of old time rock and roll. Which, perhaps, explains why "The Fire Inside," Seger's first album in five years, feels so funny at first -- instead courting the past, this one finds him looking ahead. To his credit, Seger sounds far stronger addressing the promise of potential romance in the breathless "Take a Chance" than he does lamenting lost love in the dreary "Real at the Time."

About a year ago, Stephanie Barber looked up Bob Seger's 1976 classic "Night Moves" on YouTube, trying to figure out the lyrics. "I started reading the comments, and I just spent hours reading, and I cried, and I was like, 'Oh my god, this is so moving, this forum," Barber said. Barber, a Baltimore artist and writer, turned those unedited YouTube comments into a book called "Night Moves. " It's her way of exploring human nature, especially through relatively new public forums like YouTube.

Among arenas seating between 10,000 and 15,000 people, 1st Mariner was the year's highest grossing with nearly $16 million, Billboard magazine said in its year-end issue. It's the second year in a row the 1960s venue has received the honor. In 2009, it came in third behind Boardwalk Hall Arena in Atlantic City, N.J., and the MGM Grand's Garden Arena in Las Vegas. 1st Mariner opened in 1962 as the Baltimore Civic Center, and has drawn the Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen over the years despite its age. After nearly 50 years in business, city officials are seeking funding to replace it with a bigger, slicker facility.

The economics of the record industry rest on the notion that fans still like that old-time rock 'n' roll. But hundreds of older albums that have been propping up a weak new-music business, including Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band's Greatest Hits, are starting to look shaky. Sales of "deep-catalog" albums - defined by the industry as products in release for more than three years - have dropped 11 percent this year, declining more than twice as much as sales of new releases, according to Nielsen SoundScan data.

Right now, the big debate among country critics is over which way the music ought to be heading. Some say the recent infusion of pop and rock influences has made the music more dynamic than it has been in years, while others argue that a song isn't really country unless it has that traditional honky-tonk twang.Collin Raye sees it a different way, however. As far as he can see, what's really happening right now is that today's country fans aren't afraid to listen to other kinds of music."A great example was when we were in Lewisville, Texas, working in a straight honky-tonk," he says over the phone while waiting for a flight out of Reno, Nev. "Every guy there had a Copenhagen [snuff]

The week before Thanksgiving is always light on the nightlife and entertainment fronts. And while that's true again this year, there are a bunch of Thanksgiving Eve special events planned. And, on the Saturday following the holiday, there's Fall Massive , an indoor electronic and dance music festival at RFK Stadium in Washington. Among the performers? Moby, Armand Van Helden, Diplo and other dance music marquee names. Promoters have billed it as Washington's answer to Starscape.

Bob Seger never figured he'd spend his 51st year on tour as a rock and roller."I sure didn't," he says, over the phone from a tour stop in Lexington, Ky. "When I was 20, I thought I'd be lucky if I lasted till I was 25. I remember the Beatles said that, too. I remember seeing an interview with the Beatles when they were real big, and Lennon figured, 'Yeah, when we're 25 we'll be done.' I think he was about 21 at the time." He laughs at how silly it all seems now, but back then, who knew?Who would have guessed,30 years after he made his first recordings with the Bob Seger System, that he'd still be rocking out?
