Lately, things have been heating up for the local rock band Hotspur. Since singer/songwriter Joe Mach and keyboardist Dave Trichter formed the band after graduating from the University of Maryland in 2004, Hotspur has become an independent success story. The five-piece group's second full-length album, "You Should Know Better By Now," was picked up by area Best Buy stores, and the band has drawn several hundred people to shows at Rams Head Live and the 9:30 Club . In July, Hotspur won the NMS Artist on the Verge contest, netting the band about $50,000 worth of merchandise and equipment.

Flat-out denials from representatives for Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono and a Los Angeles recording studio have not persuaded the curator of an auction Web site that a tape box doesn't prove the Beatles held a secret reunion in 1976. "Anything other than denials from the Beatles camp would be shocking," says Gary Zimet of the Moments in Time site (www.momentsintime.com). The Ampex tape box with the titles of five songs, a date (11-2-76) and performers listed as John, Paul, George and Rich, remains on the site.

Morningbird Records has come out swinging. The Columbia company, which started in 1999 promoting its Christian singing groups over the Internet, has had its Christian jazz group, praise-and-worship ensemble and contemporary Christian band broadcast on radio stations in Australia and Zambia after the music is downloaded off the Internet. Their music is on the shelves in area Christian bookstores as well as at Record and Tape Traders and the Borders bookstore in Columbia. Since 1999, the label has sold more than 6,000 compact discs.

Again and again, she made me smile that year. And just when I thought she'd be around for a while, just when I thought she'd lift me into the stratosphere with more of her music -- poof! -- the girl was gone. Adriana Evans is the mysterious songstress whose CD stayed in my changer and Walkman for an entire year, filling my headphones day in and out. I still play her album regularly. In '97, my sophomore year at the University of Arkansas, the San Francisco-raised artist dropped her self-titled debut.

The timing is off -- way off. But Sunshine Anderson feels it's better late than never. After nearly six years of silence, the R&B singer has finally released her sophomore effort, Sunshine After Midnight. The CD belatedly follows her hit 2001 debut, Your Woman. Spurred by the sassy, strutting crossover smash "Heard It All Before," that album entered the Top 10 on Billboard's pop charts five Aprils ago, eventually going gold. Anderson's lyrical directness and swaggering, slightly off-key approach drew comparisons to the original 'hood-rat diva, Mary J. Blige.

Tucked away in the schedule for one performance in the annual Columbia Festival of the Arts lie two brief lines in small white print: "Contains brief nudity and adult content. Not recommended for young children." While the issue of nudity is not new for the burgeoning festival, the advisory label signals officials' attempts to balance the family-oriented nature of the event with the desire to attract cutting-edge performances. "The reason there is an advisory label is not so much about the nudity," said Katherine Knowles, the festival's executive director.

When coronary arteries get dangerously narrow, the solution -- increasingly -- is to prop open the walls with a device called a drug-eluting stent. Now, two new studies are adding fuel to a growing debate about whether these stents are being overused, with ill consequences for patients. The studies, both published in the May 9 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, included large groups of patients who were treated for narrowing in their coronary arteries with the stents, which are tiny drug-coated cylinders used to prop open blocked arteries.

The sista is doing it for herself. As Jonatha Brooke discusses her new album, Back in the Circus, and its promotional tour, she sits in her New York City apartment, stuffing envelopes with autographed CDs. "I'm surrounded by foam mail packaging," the independent folk-pop artist says on the phone. "I personally sign the Web site orders I get." That's a lot of scribbling. Her last CD, Steady Pull, was a success on her Bad Dog label, moving 80,000 units without the push of a major label.

You should always stick with a name you can trust.Or should you?Intelligent investors who put money in the stocks of companies that make trusted brand-name consumer products have been hammered hard in 1993. It started as Philip Morris Cos. slashed prices on cigarettes to compete with fast-rising discount brands.A panic developed, resulting in price declines in stocks of countless brand-name firms that might conceivably face generic or private-brand competition.Some worry is justified, but not in all cases.

The so-called "neo-soul" field is already crowded with wannabe-smooth brothers who croon sweet nothings over hip-hop-laced grooves, injecting their sound with heavy Stevie Wonder-isms and Donny Hathaway inflections. A new artist, Javier (pronounced hav-e-air), wants to join the band, so to speak, with a sound that's warmly familiar. Like Glenn Lewis and Maxwell, he sets out to charm the ladies with ballads dripping passion. "I'm an easygoing kind of guy," says the singer, 25, calling from Los Angeles.
