Dan Deacon "America" Domino Recording Company Rating: 3 stars (out of 4) If Dan Deacon's first album, 2007's "Spiderman of the Rings," was too cartoonish and short-sighted and his follow-up, 2009's "Bromst," was too dense and insular, then the Baltimore indie-pop maestro has concisely melded his split personalities on "America" (ironically his first release for the London-based Domino Recording Company). Deacon recently said he left D.C.'s Carpark Records for Domino because his growth in Europe had stalled.

The idyllic scene Amanda Schmidt envisions on a recent Monday afternoon sounds less like a music festival and more like a serene, anything-goes camping trip with hundreds of open-minded friends, both new and old. She sees attendees playing basketball and taking dips in the pool, while others watch a stand-up comedian before heading to the woods to observe art installations. She pictures viewers enthralled by a theater performance in a barn, as many others watch Baltimore musicians like Dan Deacon, Matmos and other acts perform on multiple stages.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Last week they proved vulnerable. Yesterday, they proved beatable.What nearly happened here Wednesday night against Virginia after falling behind by nine points in the second half finally happened this season for second-ranked Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons lost to 11th-ranked Maryland and in the process showed weaknesses they hadn't demonstrated since last year's season-ending loss to Kentucky in the NCAA tournament."The only team that has pressed us so much in the past was Kentucky, and we lost both times we've played them," Wake Forest coach Dave Odom said after Maryland had stunned the Demon Deacons, 54-51, at Lawrence Joel Coliseum.

Maryland's Katrina Colleton countered with two free throws for a 63-62 Terrapin lead with 58 seconds left.Wake called time to set up a driving lay-up by Levesque that put the Deacons back in front, 64-63 with 41 seconds to play.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Name that team.This Atlantic Coast Conference program has become a fixture in the NCAA tournament, but it had to replace an All-American who gave it four great seasons. A veteran guard got benched, and the players have been accused of lacking a killer instinct. In a defeat of historic proportions, Duke demolished them on their own floor.That description fits both Maryland and Wake Forest, and if the Terps (10-5, 3-2 ACC) could rebound from a shaky start in the ACC, so can the Demon Deacons.

As Navy's football players gathered in front of TV sets to watch their Thursday night road opponent, Wake Forest, open its season at Air Force yesterday, they suddenly understood the somewhat bizarre scrimmage they had been put through the night before.Before a captive audience of plebes, jumping for joy because they were being allowed off academy grounds for the first time, and the school band playing as loudly as possible, the team was put through a scripted drill."Chaos, that's what we were trying to produce," said coach Charlie Weatherbie.

More information has been released about the severely injured puppy found in a Baltimore alley Wednesday: It now appears she had been set on fire. Officials at the Noah's Arks Rescue in South Carolina, where the 6-month-old pup was transported, say Petunia (formerly called Deacon) has an extreme case of demodex, or mites. And she has wounds consistent with being severely burned. She is in critical care and will remain in that condition for some time, but is being heavily medicated so her wounds don't hurt.  She was originally taken to the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS)

The Maryland men's soccer team may still be smarting from Saturday night's 4-3 loss to Atlantic Coast Conference rival Wake Forest, but it won't have time to dwell on the setback. That's because the Terps (6-3-5) are slated to tangle with Drexel (7-5-2) at Ludwig Field Tuesday night. It's an awfully quick turnaround for Maryland, but coach Sasho Cirovski said he doesn't mind. “I'm just happy that we have a game to play shortly after the loss because you want to get back on the field and try to solve some of your problems,” he said Monday.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J -- Oklahoma State got a typically great effort from its defense and a typically strong showing from its inside-outside combination of center Bryant Reeves and guard Randy Rutherford. But the Cowboys are headed to the Final Eight for the first time in 30 years because some unexpected players grabbed the spotlight with the season on the line.Reserve guard Chianti Roberts made two key defensive plays and converted a huge layup in the final two minutes, and point guard Andre Owens forced Wake Forest star guard Randolph Childress to commit the night's biggest turnover, as Oklahoma State overcame a six-point, second-half deficit to take a 71-66 victory in the East Regional semifinals last night before a sellout crowd at the Meadowlands Arena.

COLLEGE PARK -- Wake Forest women's basketball coach Karen Freeman knew that virtually anything she tried against 12th-ranked Maryland would be a crap shoot.She could hope star freshman center Tracy Connor could guard Jessie Hicks in a man-to-man defense, or go with the predictable and defend the Terps in a zone.Freeman chose the zone, and guard Malissa Boles made the Deacons pay, scoring 21 points -- 16 in the second half -- to lead Maryland to an 80-65 victory before 2,345 at Cole Field House.

Dan Deacon and his ensemble were confined to the "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" stage last night, a rarity for the acclaimed Baltimore electronic musician. (If you've been to a Deacon show, you likely know he prefers the floor, with the crowd by his side.) Rules may be rules, but Deacon still made his unique connection with the audience through the Dan Deacon smartphone app . As you'll see in the clip, Deacon - broadcasting from an iPhone - instructs viewers at home to play along, too. It's a strong performance from Deacon and his ensemble, as "True Thrush's" pop sensibilities naturally shine.
