KMFDMAdios (Wax Trax! TVT 7258)After the tragedy at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., pundits grasping to explain why Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold slaughtered 12 classmates and a teacher immediately seized upon the interests that made the two "different." As is always the case with scary teen-agers, much was made of Harris and Klebold's taste in music -- particularly their fondness for the underground German band KMFDM.The irony was that even as KMFDM was getting its dubious moment in the limelight, the band was preparing to call it quits.

These days, the concert business is going south -- literally. As more and more shows bypass Baltimore for Virginia-area venues, local music fans are having to drive farther and farther to see shows.Over the summer, the Nissan Pavilion at Stone Ridge, just outside Manassas, wound up booking most of the season's biggest bills, from No Doubt and Fleetwood Mac to festivals like H.O.R.D.E. and Lollapalooza. But even after the Nissan Pavilion shuts down (Tim McGraw closes out the season this evening)

WICHITA, Kan. -- Despite scoring six goals in an 8-6 loss to Wichita last night, the Baltimore Blast still is looking for some consistent scoring.Baltimore took a 4-2 lead midway through the second period, but managed just two more goals. Including a 7-3 loss to Dallas in its opener, the Blast fell to 0-2."We're not hitting the target," said coach Kenny Cooper. "You'd think with six goals, you could win. This could easily have been a 10-all game."I think the turning point for me was the power play, when we had a chance to build a lead and get some momentum," he said, referring to a power play early in the second half, when the Blast got only two shots off."

"Hey, girlfriend!"The Fan is interrupted from her daze. She is dawdling in Camden Yards, not quite ready to leave even though the last out of the last game of the year has already been made. A guy on a sort of dry-land Zamboni is driving slow ovals over the infield dirt to smooth it for the next game, a long six months away.It's Gilda and Marla, the czarinas of the scalp-free zone. The Fan, one of their most loyal customers, hasn't seen them since the weather was hot and the Orioles even hotter.

The Wichita Wings might have considered it a moral victory. But they didn't. And the Baltimore Blast might have been unhappy with a 7-6 victory against a team playing without its only true goalkeeper. But it wasn't."We should have won this game," said Wings defender Kim Roentved. "This was a great chance for us to show we could play our way through adversity."Said Blast defender Iain Fraser: "We've been on the other side in dodgy games like this that we should have won and didn't. We knew this would be a tough game.
