A traveling EDM festival might have seemed like a far-fetched notion, but Live Nation's IDentity is returning this year, with a show planned at Jiffy Lube Live again. The festival, which last year attracted big-timer Kaskade, back when when he didn't headline arenas, and Hercules and Love Affair, consists of genre stars - this year it's Wolfgang Gartner, Nero, and Paul Van Dyk, among others - taking turns at the turntables for several hours before an arena crowd. Kaskade, presumably, was busy with his own arena tour . Live Nation did not disclose last year's attendance numbers with Billboard, which ran the press release . Nice detail: "IDENTITY's sponsors include Rockstar Energy Drink, Emazing Lights, Slurpee, TIGI Bedhead, and Lifestyle Condoms.

It was time for the guys of Linkin Park to grow up. In the early part of the decade, they sold millions of albums scorching with angst-ridden songs of tormented love and alienation. It was music -- a fusion of buzzing metal and swaggering hip-hop -- that appealed mostly to teens and college freshmen. But on Minutes to Midnight, Linkin Park's latest album and first release in four years, the Los Angeles sextet largely trades fury for melody. If you go Linkin Park performs at 7 p.m. Tuesday at 1st Mariner Arena, 201 W. Baltimore St. Tickets are $38.50-$54.

Linkin Park has been around for 12 years now, but it was only last year that it made what has been hailed as its best album. On Thursday, the veteran band will perform at Verizon Center as part of its "A Thousand Suns" tour, which recently completed sold-out runs in Europe and Australia. When Rob Bourdon, Brad Delson and guitarist and rapper Mike Shinoda started the band in California in 1996, it was just another one of the rising rap-rock groups that formed at the time.

Baltimore's smooth-jazz lovers have been left scanning the radio waves for a new station, after last week's surprise switch by WSMJ-FM (104.3) to a "rock alternative" format. Since Friday morning, a station that for nearly five years had been home to such artists as Spyro Gyra and Deniece Williams has been airing Alice in Chains and Linkin Park - as well as shock jock Elliot in the Morning from 4:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. Not surprisingly, lovers of the old format are not exactly cozying up to the new. "I thought they were doing quite well; I had no idea they were in trouble," said Bob Weaber of Timonium, a 61-year-old business manager for a local electronics firm.

Trying to grow up in front of millions of fans who want you to stay a certain way must be frustrating. But the guys of Linkin Park are trying to play it both ways: Give the fans what they want upfront and then reveal the "deeper" side that's still evolving. On Minutes to Midnight, the rap-metal band's latest album and first release in four years, the group's searing, angst-filled approach has mellowed. Sort of. On it, the band offers more soaring melodies reminiscent of U2 or even Coldplay.

LOS ANGELES -- Listening to the piano-driven pop of Holly Brook's debut album, you would never guess the 20-year-old singer-songwriter grew up wanting to play Annie on Broadway. Like Blood Like Honey, due on Warner Bros. Records this spring, is far more nuanced than the belting, theatrical vocals she favored in her youth. And the bells and whistles of full-on stage productions have been stripped to the essentials - Brook's cashmere voice, her baby grand and a small complement of backup musicians.
