A celebration 15 years in the making will bring an Annapolis rock group full circle on Friday night. Jimmie's Chicken Shack, the eclectic rock group best known for its singles “Do Right” and “High,” will commemorate the anniversary of its second and most recognizable album, “Bring Your Own Stereo,” by playing the record's 13 tracks in order for the first time ever. For James Davies, the 45-year-old frontman better known as Jimi HaHa, the fact that a Rams Head venue will host the show makes it even more special.

You'd think three days of IndyCar racing would be enough for the inaugural Baltimore Grand Prix to offer. But organizers are taking no chances. With an schedule of events that includes concerts, volleyball games, kid-friendly activities and a seemingly endless stream of parties, the folks who put together the Grand Prix clearly want to ensure that no spectator gets bored — not even for a moment. "Racing is not the only thing that's happening here," said Grand Prix president Jay Davidson.

For the last month or so, fans of local radio station WHFS have been listening to something they've probably never heard before -- "Dundalk" in a song lyric.And they love it.The single "Blue Skies Over Dundalk," by an Annapolis cowpunk singer/songwriter who calls herself Mary Prankster, hit the airwaves in early June, and the reaction was "tremendous," says WHFS morning-show host Lou Brutus.Prankster's label, Fowl Records, rushed out 1,000 copies of the CD, also titled "Blue Skies Over Dundalk," and almost immediately they sold out. The album is now in its second printing, and the relatively unknown Prankster is "overjoyed."

Jimmie's Chicken ShackBring Your Own Stereo (Rocket 314 546 382)It's funny how technology changes our perceptions. In the early days of recording, the sound of a gramophone seemed so pale in comparison to live music that it was treated more as a novelty than an accurate representation.Over time, as studio technology improved and recorded music became more ubiquitous than live performance, people came to think of live music and records as two distinct entities. For some acts, the recorded sound took such prominence that bands resorted to all sorts of trickery in order to duplicate the sounds set down in the recording studio, while for others, the raw, visceral quality of a live performance was considered vastly superior to anything the artist could put on disc.

Some bands are proud of their pedigree and take pride in pronouncing their music purebred punk, straight-up ska or thoroughly thrash. The members of Jimmie's Chicken Shack, on the other hand, are a little less finicky about describing their sound. What they play, as front man Jimi HaHa blithely puts it, is "mutt rock.""We don't necessarily have one style," he explains. "We take from a bunch of them, you know? That's basically why we call it 'mutt rock.' " He laughs. "It's a mutt like the rest of us."
