As one highway ramp in Brooklyn reopens, another is set to close. A ramp designed to carry South Baltimore traffic onto the northbound lanes of Interstate 895 that has been closed for nearly six months is set to reopen on Saturday, according to the Maryland Transportation Authority. A week later, a ramp carrying southbound I-895 traffic into the same part of the city - near Potee Street and Patapsco Avenue, in Brooklyn - will close, at least for several months. Both moves are the result of an ongoing, $12.6 million state transportation project to replace the decks of the bridges that carry I-895 over Patapsco Avenue and Potee and Hanover streets, the MdTA said.

But Johnny Siera, the group's other founder, still pressed ahead. In March, the Death Set released a new album, "Michel Poiccard," that was inspired by Velasco's death. "It's trying to celebrate his presence and his life rather than mourn it," said Siera, who performs two shows Saturday at the Windup Space with drummer Jahphet Landis and guitarist Dan Walker.

Shades of Bunk Moreland, of “The Wire,” to be sure. Only instead of Dominic West as Jimmy McNulty matching him drink for drink, it was Liev Schreiber as Ray Donovan sitting next to him. Still, the character, Ronald Keith, a parole officer in Showtime's “Ray Donovan” series, was played just as winningly by Pierce.
