This is the 52nd presidential election.The 18th was held in 1856. It was a tumultuous time. The Whig Party had elected two of the last four presidents, but it found itself riven and reduced to its last gasping breaths by the most volatile issue in American political history, slavery. The Democrats had a problem with this, too. Southern based, the party was strongly pro-slavery. It supported extending slavery into the Western territories. Many Whigs and some Democrats in the North and Midwest switched to the new anti-slavery Republican Party.

Silver Spring is getting a new live music venue this Fall, and Mary J. Blige has been tapped for the opening ceremony. The Fillmore Silver Spring, part of a Live Nation-owned chain of venues that also includes locations in Miami Beach and San Francisco, has been in the works for a while. It's finally scheduled to open to the public in September. Above is a rendering of what it'll look like. With a capacity of 2,000 people, the venue will host, mainly, concerts. And already, one big act has been booked: Black Star is scheduled to perform there September 18. Blige is the second marquee name to be added to the Fillmore's upcoming line-up.

"Music is at the Heart" -- the Concert Artists of Baltimore's 14th annual benefit gala -- combined 18th century charm with 21st century warmth. As guests entered Pikesville's historic Grey Rock Mansion, many were greeted with a hug and hello by artistic director Edward Polochick. A harpist provided a melodic atmosphere, while the partygoers explored the manor. The library offered a carved wooden fireplace and the bar, while other rooms featured an antipasto buffet and silent auction items.

I have Millard Fillmore's hat," Dan Johns says with great pride. Johns is executive director of the United States Vice Presidential Museum, a treasure trove of memorabilia of some of America's most forgettable political figures. It is housed at the Dan Quayle Center in Huntington, Ind., Quayle's hometown. Quayle, of course, was vice president under President George Herbert Walker Bush. Johns has picked up some Dick Cheney artifacts and says he'll keep an eye out for John Edwards stuff, although perhaps the only politicians more obscure than most vice presidents are vice presidential candidates who don't win. And though the center houses the Quayle papers, the museum is basically nonpolitical.

SO THE LAST Whig ever elected president may have been murdered? We'll know soon, when an arsenic test is performed on the remains of Zachary Taylor.If he was slain, the question becomes, "who done it?" The obvious answer is the person who benefited most. That was Millard Fillmore. He was Taylor's vice president and moved up upon ZT's death in 1850.Some people might say a little arsenic in ZT's milk turned out to be justifiable homicide, historically speaking. Here is a 90-second history lesson.

When "XXL" revealed the cover of its March "Freshman Class" issue - the hip-hop magazine's annual anointment of rising rappers most poised for major success - there was a fresh-faced, parka-wearing kid in the bottom-right corner, throwing a peace sign as a couple of gold chains hung from his neck. It was Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, better known as Logic, a 23-year-old rapper born and raised in Gaithersburg. Less than a month after the "XXL" cover was announced, Logic, who headlines the Fillmore Silver Spring on Sunday, signed to Def Jam Recordings, a label that has been synonymous with hip-hop prestige since producer Rick Rubin founded it in 1983.

Guns N' Roses performed at the Fillmore Silver Spring Thursday night. Contributor Jeremy 'Jay' Trucker has this review. Say what you want about Axl Rose's erratic touring schedule and late-night performances, but when the man shows up for a gig, he sticks around for a while.  That was certainly the case at the Fillmore on Thursday night, where Guns N' Roses took the stage just after midnight, playing a three-hour set of more than 30...

Washington's 9:30 Club, run by Bethesda-based I.M.P., and U Street Music Hall have formed a cross-venue booking alliance, the two Washington clubs said today. They say the partnership will allow them to foster up-and-coming talent. "There will be bands that we present at U Street Music Hall that will one day headline at Merriweather," said I.M.P. chairman Seth Hurwitz, who also runs the Columbia amphitheater, in a statement. It also enables the two clubs to be competitive against Live Nation, which opened the Fillmore in Silver Spring in September in a bid to grow its slice of the midsize club market.

In Silver Spring, they've been waiting for it for a decade: a brand-new music venue smack in the middle of the arts district - a rock counterpart to the dignified AFI Silver Theatre and the brainy Discovery complex. When the Fillmore Silver Spring was finally unveiled this month, scores turned up to watch R&B star Mary J. Blige perform. But the 2,000-capacity theater won't just be a new stage - it has the potential to rewrite the landscape for Baltimore and Washington booking agents as well as music lovers.

The sixth U.S. club to boast the iconic Fillmore moniker, the new venue is a descendent of the original San Francisco nightclub that became the epicenter of 1960s counterculture. It helped launch the legendary careers of Jimi Hendrix, the Doors and Janis Joplin, among others.
