Paul Manna got his start booking wedding bands for $50 a week plus 15 percent to 20 percent commission. It was a way into music, which he knew he wanted, but it wasn't quite right. "My heart wasn't in booking wedding bands," said Manna, who, at 47, still remembers vividly the thrill of his first concert when he was 15 — Ted Nugent at the Civic Center in Baltimore. Since he started 24-7 Entertainment in 1997, he's been working to provide that excitement for audiences, booking about 100 shows a year in the Baltimore area.

Look around the crowd attending the Jonas Brothers concert at 1st Mariner Arena tonight. Chances are that some of the fans will be more than 5 feet tall and are watching their cholesterol. They might not even have children in tow. It's true that the boy band composed of three teenage brothers from New Jersey appeals primarily to prepubescent girls. The median age at a Jonas Brothers concert is probably about 12. But there are a number of certified adults - people old enough to legally vote and drink - who are willing to declare, in public, that they are followers of the newest kids on the block.

DVD The Seventh Seal **** (4 stars) Starring Max Von Sydow. Directed by Ingmar Bergman. Released by the Criterion Collection. $29.95. More than 50 years have passed since Swedish director Ingmar Bergman came up with the idea of a knight playing chess with Death, with the knight's life hanging in the balance. Even those who have never seen 1957's The Seventh Seal have heard about the infamous chess match, especially after it was spoofed in Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (where the game was updated to Twister, electric football and a few others)

Younger audiences, perhaps used to the adoptive personas of online realities, seem less bothered by questions of authenticity than previous generations. So it should be no surprise that the opening of Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, ostensibly a concert documentary, features a sequence of the band being chased by fans that seems "real" only in the same sense as an episode of The Hills. Directed by Bruce Hendricks, who also fashioned the recent Miley Cyrus 3-D concert movie, the film is awkwardly stitched together from candy-gloss arena concert footage and somewhat-grimier-looking backstage/limo/hotel room moments.

Just a few months ago, Baltimore and the rest of America were caught up in the craze over tween queen Hannah Montana. At the sold-out 1st Mariner Arena, some parents showed up at ticket windows begging, pleading and even weeping to get their family in to see the wholesome pop star. That blockbuster tour was followed with a 3-D movie version that raked in more than $35 million and was the top movie in the country despite a limited release. But today, the fascination over Hannah Montana, the real-life Miley Ray Cyrus, has noticeably cooled.

For 16-year-old Chelsea Bradford, standing outside the 1st Mariner Arena last night, wearing a pair of sunglasses on which she had painted the words "Jonas Brothers," the question couldn't have been easier. Asked "What's so great about the Jonas Brothers?" she paused for about one-thousandth of a second before answering, with a look that suggested the answer should have been painfully obvious, "They're hot." There was a lot of that going around in Baltimore last night, as a few thousand teenage girls massed at the arena to welcome Disney's newest singing sensations to Charm City.

Why should the Orioles hold on to Brian Roberts? I can give you at least 50 reasons. The second baseman has a club-record 51 doubles, two behind the Boston Red Sox's Dustin Pedroia's major league-leading total. This season, he has already set the single-season major league record for doubles by a switch hitter, breaking his record of 50, set in 2004. It's nothing new. Roberts has had opponents seeing double for the past five seasons, in four of which he had 40-plus two-baggers. Since 2004, he is the only player in the majors to have two 50-double seasons.

With no host and a bevy of performances, the 51st annual Grammy Awards telecast last night tried to position itself as a televised pop music festival, only with more glitter and very expensive, industrial-style staging. But unlike a pop fest (and previous Grammy shows), there was very little spontaneity - or a sense of fun. The performances were full and lush but still anti-climactic, for the most part. Despite all that, the program ran rather smoothly. But there was an obvious awkward spot early on. Rihanna, the Bahamian pop superstar, was scheduled to perform but bowed out at the last minute.

The All-American Rejects [DGC/Interscope] ** Tyson Ritter, the singer and bassist of the All-American Rejects, is 24 now. Two years ago, he said in an interview that he had seen only four concerts in his life, other than ones he'd played in. It's best not to believe a handsome rock star from Oklahoma when he says something like that - it's like saying he was raised by wolves - but the claim seems to fit his band's kind of rock-ribbed emo. The band's...
