Every performance by jazz singer Rene Marie is an act of validation. Sixteen years ago, she faced an ultimatum from her then-husband - abandon music or get out. She chose the latter course, and went on to enjoy an international career. Her musical journey continues as Marie brings her Eartha Kitt tribute to Creative Alliance this weekend. Given her self-confidence and dynamic personality, Marie is a natural to delve into the legacy of the sexy, indelible Kitt. Although Marie can purr seductively through a song, she doesn't try to imitate Kitt.

Artist Pablo Machioli hangs out in the belly of the letter "B. " Kyle Miller likes to linger in "U," a letter he helped shape from steel and pine. And bus driver Kaliha Taylor waits for her shift to begin while perched on the lower curve of "S. " Baltimore's most distinctive bus stop was unveiled late last month on the side of the Creative Alliance in Highlandtown. The trio of giant letters - which resemble a set piece from "Sesame Street" - has become a favorite spot for residents to lounge or pose for photos.

The Creative Alliance will take over the cafe operations at the Patterson, the cultural organization's Highlandtown home. The cafe, which opened last May as Clementine at the Creative Alliance , was operated by the owners of Clementine on Harford Road. The transfer of operations will take place on Feb. 25. The space will now operate as the Marquee Lounge , which had been, somewhat confusingly, the overlapping name for the same space off the Creative Alliance's main lobby.

Well I reckon if you're going to throw a big pie-themed party in Baltimore, it makes good sense to have Rodney "The Pie Man" Henry on board.  Sure enough, Henry, the founder of Baltimore's Dangerously Delicious Pies, will be bringing his inimitable "Pie Style" to   PIE at the Patterson , a pie-themed party at the Creative Alliance on Friday night. Henry will be among the judges for the evening's centerpiece, a creative pie-making contest open to all guests.

Since taking over the century-old Patterson Theater a few years ago, the Creative Alliance has refashioned and remodeled it into an exciting creative space for artists across mediums. So it follows that when the Creative Alliance set about remaking the street-front space below the Patterson's old projection room into a lounge, the result would be as eye-catching. Open since May, Marquee Lounge is supposed to be an after-hours spot for the theater's patrons. But since the lounge is beautifully decorated, well-staffed and has a satisfying beer and wine menu, it would succeed as a destination on its own — even if the Creative Alliance wasn't there.

It's been a busy couple of weeks for Winston Blick and Cristin Dadant. During May, the couple oversaw the opening of the Green Onion food market on Harford Road and Clementine at the Creative Alliance , an Eastern Avenue outpost of their popular Hamilton comfort food spot. On top of the openings, Blick and Dadant's catering business is booming, and the original Clementine continues to serve a steady stream of diners. They've got a lot going on. But if our experience at Clementine at the Creative Alliance is any indication, Blick, Dadant and company are handling things with aplomb.

Two LGBT-focused films screening at the Creative Alliance over the next two weeks provide deeper looks at often-marginalized parts of the queer community -- with one exploring Maryland in particular. On Thursday night, director Tina Gharavi's " I Am Nasrine " is located at the intersection of immigration and sexuality, providing a look at what it means to struggle with both one's national identity and sexual orientation. The movie, part of which was filmed clandestinely in Iran, follows the stories of siblings Nasrine and Ali as they leave Iran to start new lives in the U.K. As the pair get their bearings in a foreign nation whose attitude toward immigrants is often, uh, less-than-enlightened, Ali also grapples with his emerging sexuality.

In a scene from the documentary "A Place of Truth," opening Thursday at the Creative Alliance , Abi Mott sits behind a small desk on a city street corner with a sign that reads: "Name a price. Pick a subject. Get a poem. " She is greeted by a customer and after a quick exchange of money; she enters words on a vintage typewriter. Moments later, Mott hands her customer a short poem and smiles. "This is what she wrote for me," says the customer, eyes filled with tears, as she begins to read the lyrics out loud.

If you're throwing a 1940s-themed party, you can't go wrong with Baltimore musician Bosley. In fact, it'd be a bit remiss not to include him. "Sultry dance music, louche behavior and hijinx," is how the 28-year-old (full name: Bosley Brown) described what to expect when he headlines the Party at the Patterson, dubbed "Lipstick," on Friday at the Creative Alliance (8 p.m., $7-$15; 3134 Eastern Ave.). The Lipstick gig begins another busy year for the Hamilton resident, who said he's influenced by everything from the Beatles and Miles Davis to Otis Redding and Teddy Pendergrass.

Although he spent the majority of 10 years on the road, Cris Jacobs still feels a strong connection to the stage where it all started. "The 8x10 is my homebase, my backyard. I love it and the people who own it, Abigail [Janssens] and Brian [Shupe]. I think I've played it 150 times or more. Probably more," said the 35-year-old singer-songwriter, who played the venue last Thursday. "Some of my fondest musical memories were made there. " Jacobs made his name in Baltimore as the guitarist and singer in the Bridge, the popular rock band that took its members across the country and Europe.

A recent afternoon was windowpane-clear, the sun bright and direct. The environment could not have seemed less conducive for communing with the spirit world. And yet, Jeff and Tessa Evason walked up and down a stretch of Annapolis waterfront known as Ego Alley, telling strangers intimate details of their lives that it was seemingly impossible for the couple to have known in advance. The Evasons, who describe themselves on their website as "a mind-reading duo," wished a visibly startled Christine Mae Jones of Hebron a happy 47th birthday as she ate lunch with her husband at a sidewalk café.

KJ Mohr has programmed film festivals around the country for years. But it at started, she said, "for very selfish reasons. " "I devoured all the foreign videos from my public library, but I knew there was a lot of independently produced film out there that I did not have access to, " said Mohr, 38. "And the only way to get my hands on it was to organize public screenings. For years, Mohr, who was born in Ripon, Wisc., and now lives in Highlandtown, has worked with various LGBT film festivals.

As a kid, Dean Storm would create stop motion animation featuring G.I. Joe characters and make animated action flip movies on bus pass booklets. "I wanted to be like Dawson on 'Dawson's Creek,'" he said. Storm, who lived in Canton for seven years prior to moving to Anneslie, was able to follow his dreams when he was able to afford video equipment and editing software. Since 2007, he has written and directed a dozen short films. Now, the 39-year-old digital content manager of the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development has imparted his love of filmmaking to others with 29 Days Later.

There's no one way to describe Sabrina Chap -- and that's what we love about her. She's a musician and songwriter - her latest album, "We Are the Parade" boasts a title track about marriage equality. She often performs with burlesque and variety shows. And she plays a mean kazoo. "Someone once called me a mix of Julie Andrews and Divine, which I love," said the 35-year-old, whose real last name is Chapadjiev. "I've also gotten 'Tom Waits with a hint of Phyllis Diller. And though she lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., Chap has often performed in Baltimore for the past few years.
