It has to be one of the trickiest transitions in pop music. In the past several years, O.A.R. has made the jump from successful jam band to radio-friendly rock outfit. The band once known for the nine-minute acoustic epic "That Was a Crazy Game of Poker" - a smash on the college circuit - is now the band behind the platinum-selling rock single "Shattered." Back when O.A.R. first got together in Rockville in the mid-1990s, there was a clear-cut career path for musicians: Most bands signed to major labels, cranked out a couple of hits, developed a fan base and then drew on that fan base.

Chef Chad Wells of Alewife restaurant tossed chunks of raw snakehead fish with cilantro and citrus to make something more ambitious than an $8 ceviche appetizer. It was an invasive-species eradication plan in a martini glass. Wells wants the Asian interloper, which has settled with alarming ease into Chesapeake-area rivers, streams and perhaps the bay itself, to find a new home on restaurant menus. The chef is confident that once diners get a taste of snakehead, they can be counted on to do what they've always done with toothsome fish: wipe them out. "We've proved time and again, the best way to destroy something is get humans involved," Wells said.

In some ways, the Browns were asking for this when they went with such a young roster. By this, I mean losing. By this, I mean agitation. By this, I mean asking a beaten-down, impatient fan base to just wait because going young is the best way to build a team. It is the wisest road, assuming the young players have talent.

There are classical musicians, rock musicians, pop musicians, jazz musicians -- and then there is Elvis Costello, a genre unto himself. For the better part of three decades, the British-born, severely bespectacled Costello has been a remarkable source of interesting, sophisticated, surprising music and music-making, earning a broad fan base with his skills as a singer/songwriter and guitarist. BSO and ELVIS COSTELLO 8 tonight at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Remaining tickets are $34 to $90. Call 410-783-8000 or visit baltimoresymphony.

While writing Monday's blog entry about Brian Roberts' thoughts on leaving the Orioles , I more than once halted my typing when referring to the New York Yankees. I wanted to call them the Orioles' chief rival, and I suppose that is true since the Orioles seemingly have always been gunning for the Bronx Bombers. But rivalry is a two-way street, and we know the Yankees' chief rival is the Boston Red Sox. Then I nearly called the Yankees the Orioles' most despised rival.

JACA, Spain -- The first lady of the Spanish bullring is having an awful night.The bulls are not cooperating. Cowards.They are lying down like old sleeper sofas. If they could talk, these bulls would shout, "We've fallen, and we can't get up."Cristina Sanchez, the matador who wears pearl earrings and a snarl, must somehow bring honor to these beasts. Dressed in her green and silver matador's outfit, her blond hair tied in a French braid, she uses her cape and muleta to bring these bulls along on a dance of death, creating art from dust and blood.
