The Christmas-and-New-Year's hangover can still be felt around the city. Nothing is immune - not even our clubs. So that explains the weaker-than-usual weekend lineup for live music in Baltimore and even D.C. A fun night with a group of friends could be Saturday's Legwarmers show at Rams Head Live, but you better have a ticket already - it sold out on Wednesday. And, of course, there's the Pianos Become the Teeth record release show at Ottobar, which I also recommend, but you knew about that already.

THE EMPEROR received a report from his chief tester that no children in his empire could read or write.He asked his royal image maker what he should do about it.The sage said, "This gives us a chance for a photo opportunity. We will go to a school near the palace and talk to the children about learning their ABCs."So the next day, led by the royal flack, the entire court and all the emperor's scribes went to a school.They entered Miss Boomboom's class and the children stood up and bowed and then cheered at a signal from the emperor's master of arms, the Royal Sununu.

Shoppers scouring for good buys at bargain magnet C-Mart can see the changes on the sales floor. Workers replaced handwritten price tags with bar-coded tickets. Computerized machines are in, while old-fashioned cash registers are out. By January, with a click of a mouse, customers should be able buy discount designer clothes and furniture now found only at C-Mart's Joppatowne and Landover stores. C-Mart's new owners want to build the company into a national retailer. That is a challenging proposition: trying to balance the roots of this paper-and-pencil enterprise against ambitious goals to become a big chain.

Editor's note: A case of mistaken identity works out for the best. As the sun set on the iceberg, Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, Perfect and Tacky were telling penguin jokes. "Why did the Penguin cross the road?" asked Goodly. "Why?" asked his companions. "He didn't." Lovely, Angel, Neatly and Perfect laughed uproariously. "How many penguins does it take to change a light bulb?" asked Lovely. Before anyone could answer, a messenger swooped down and dropped a note. The note read: THE EMPEROR IS COMING TO VISIT.

WASHINGTON - Ah, much better. Instead of a post-game news conference after a loss in which the Emperor of the Wizards (Sir Air) delivers a threat about needing more minutes because the kids are not all right, we get this: A gush of praise. It turns out Michael Jordan doesn't need more minutes. Juan Dixon, however, does. No one is going to argue with that prescription for what ails Jordan's Wizards, not after the former Terp did everything he could last night to make Jordan eat his words - or at least some of those harsh words.

Ah, vanity! Hans Christian Andersen satirized the vice in his fairy tale The Emperor's New Clothes, and Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy made it something to sing about in their musical version of the tale, which will make its Maryland debut at Pumpkin Theatre this weekend. Roger Schulman plays the preening monarch, Tiffany Walker Porta is his wife, and Shawn Doyle and Dana Whipkey are the con men who pull the wool over the emperor's eyes (without adding a stitch of it to his wardrobe). Direction and choreography are by Todd Pearthree.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and its music director, David Zinman, concluded what may have been its best Summerfest series ever Saturday with the best concert of the festival. The chief reason was an extraordinary Beethoven's "Emperor Concerto" that featured the pianist Nelson Freire.In the opinion of many piano aficionados -- including this writer -- Freire is the undisputed heir to the late Arthur Rubinstein. There is the same physical beauty of the playing -- gorgeous tone from top to bottom at all dynamic levels -- and a kind of technique that makes playing the piano seem as natural and as easy as breathing.

Those possibly eternal opposites, East and West, have met again in The First Emperor, a visually spectacular, often engaging, and not entirely successful opera by Tan Dun. This new work by the winner of an Academy Award and a Grammy for his Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon film score is a hot ticket at New York's Metropolitan Opera, which commissioned the piece a decade ago. Although a few seats were available for last Thursday's opening night, the eight...

It is a little after 10 on a Monday morning, and the waiters are arriving at the Oregon Grille for a day of work. Inside, Robert M. Parker Jr. is already at work, tasting wine. Ensconced in a small, well-appointed room in the Hunt Valley restaurant, Parker sniffs, sips, then spits samples of some two dozen wines from David Powell's Torbreck, a South Australian winery. He records his impressions in a small notebook, soon to be translated into "Parker points." Those points have earned Parker, a reigning wine expert whose opinions can make chateaux quake, plenty of criticism from those who say he likes only big, concentrated wines, or that winemakers engineer their products to please his tastes.

A fairy tale about palace schemers who say whatever their leader wants to hear in hopes of acquiring - or staying in - power remains as relevant today as when Hans Christian Andersen wrote it in 1837. But that's only part of what makes the Moonlight Troupers' production of the musical comedy The Emperor's New Clothes so entertaining. The show by the Anne Arundel Community College theater group opened Friday and continues this weekend, with the actors happily presenting their one-dimensional stock characters.

New York -- Entering his office in Citigroup's Manhattan headquarters, Sanford I. Weill punched a few buttons on a computer before looking over his shoulder and smiling broadly. Asked if he had looked at Citigroup's stock price, he shrugged as if to suggest he could not help himself. "It's up 35 cents; it's a good day," he noted. For years, Weill and Citigroup were, for all intents and purposes, synonymous. During decades of deal making, he built one of the most influential financial institutions in the world.

TOKYO -- In the midst of downtown, the ancient and mysterious world of the imperial family will emerge tomorrow.In the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace, a shrinelike complex of halls will be silhouetted in the autumn twilight and the dim light of watch fires. At the center of the complex are three main holy halls -- two are identical -- for Emperor Akihito's religious ceremonies based on Shinto, Japan's indigenous religion.Around them are about 30 other buildings, all built this year for the Imperial family's overnight ceremony at a total cost of $7 million.

Alicia de Larrocha is the reigning queen of pianists. But there was not much that was regal about the performance of Beethoven's "Emperor Concerto" that she gave last night in Meyerhoff Hall with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and its conductor-in-residence, Christopher Seaman.De Larrocha's approach to this piece was leisurely and deliberate rather than heroic and imperial. There are many ways to scale a mountain, but the Spanish pianist's way -- on this occasion -- was not one of them.

Anne Arundel Community College's Moonlight Troupers put on two shows each academic year that typically have been recognized for the quality of students' performance and for superior costuming and sets, also largely the product of student efforts. The Troupers hope to continue that tradition with their musical comedy adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's The Emperor's New Clothes, which opens today at 7:30 p.m. at Anne Arundel Community College's Pascal Center for the Performing Arts.
