It all started in a freezing cold warehouse in early January. Three old friends, all with different music backgrounds, got together for their first band practice. They didn't know what genre they were going for other than surf rock, but before the first hour was up they had their first song written. By the end of the practice, they had two. Since then, the sound of Drunk Monk has become something else entirely. “To me, it's a kind of psychedelic surf doom jazz,” says Jacob Honaker, 27, the band's guitarist.

William Hill's Monk's Falcon stalked the speedy pacesetter and then drove by to win the $60,000 Challedon Stakes for older Maryland-bred colts and geldings yesterday at Laurel Park. Under Paul Nicol Jr., Monk's Falcon sped away from his inside post and raced inside of front-running In CC's Honor down the backside and through the far turn. Nicol then guided his 6-year-old charge outside the leader and, as that one began to shorten strides, powered to win by two lengths. Betting favorite Forty Eight Hours charged out of the pack to place, holding off Jorgie Stover by a nose.

"It's kind of repugnant when the water comes down," Monk said. "There's a lot of debris that people throw down in that neighborhood, unfortunately.

They go by such names as Booda Monk, JaziRock, Curve and Refuge, and they're known for turning drab city landscapes into colorful, artistic expressions. On Saturday they and other urban artists gathered in Mund Park to celebrate their craft: Spray-painted works often referred to as graffiti. The art is a part of hip-hip culture that was once widely disparaged but ultimately garnered some acceptance as hip-hop music hit mainstream. Saturday's Urban Eyes: Fuel for the Arts event gave urban artists, some of whom have been painting such works for more than 30 years, a chance to not only display finished works but to stage live painting demonstrations and hold workshops on the craft.
