The last show at Sonar - which, over the years, has built a reputation for its wide array of shows and performers, both local and international - was Sunday, according to Griffin. California's the Millionaire$ headlined. "Sonar is closed, very much so," Griffin said.

Midnight Sun contributor Ellie Kahn saw Skrillex headline Pimlico Race Course on Sunday night. This was her take: The sky opened up Sunday evening at Pimlico Race Course, and a UFO touched down at the edge of the Infield, one that highly resembled a soundboard, a laptop, bright lights and a stringy-haired nerd with a half-shave: The DJ known as Skrillex, had landed, and docked his mothership for the night. His stop - part of his larger tour “The Mothership Tour” and featuring artists Milo & Otis, What So Not and Dillon Francis marked his 11th in North America; Baltimore was his first destination after the three-day Governor's Ball Music Festival in New York City and second-to-last warm-up before this weekend's four-day Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tenn.

Don't worry, it won't be the type where they do bad covers of Adon Olam. Eutaw Place, housed at the bottom of Beth Am Synagogue, is catering to singer-songwriters. It's scheduled to open in late April. The idea came together last summer, said producer and booker Ellen Kahan Zager, 56. She likes coffee-house types like Jammin Java in Virginia and adult contemporary getaways like Rams Head on Stage in Annapolis. But didn't find any in Baltimore. Though she didn't have any experience in the business - "My husband and I just love music," the graphic designer says - she approached the rabbi of her new temple, Beth Am, with a proposal: "Would you consider a music venue in the lower level of the synagogue?"

Last week, protesters chanted, "Hey hey, ho ho, let's shut down this racist show" outside of a New Haven, Conn., music venue. Their target was Ted Nugent, the 64-year-old rock 'n' roll guitarist from Detroit whose brash demeanor and conservative views have garnered him more headlines than his music has in recent years. The protesters were upset by a column Nugent had penned for a conservative website last month about the George Zimmerman verdict. In the column, Nugent fully supported the jury's verdict and called Trayvon Martin a "17-year-old dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe.

The Barn Crab House, the longtime Carney destination for steamed crabs and live music, has closed.  The Facebook page for the venue was boiling over with concern on Tuesday morning, and later in the day, Paul Wisner, one of the Barn's current co-owners, sent out an email confirming the news: "I regret to inform everyone that due to circumstances beyond my control, management and extenuating circumstances over the past year that has just recently...

For 22 years, crowds have danced and sweat to live shows inside the club at 8-10 E. Cross St. In that time, a handful of owners have torn it down, built it back and changed its name. While so much has altered aesthetically, the venue's mission to showcase local and national acts on the cusp of hitting it big is still intact. On Sept. 1, the club will change again, from the Funk Box to the 8x10 Club. Business owner Tim Walther made the call, which is both a nod to the venue's past and a move he hopes will attract a more diverse lineup.

My first visit to the new Inner Harbor club and music venue Baltimore Soundstage was inauspicious. Though it had been open for a week, its bar was limping along without liqueurs or vermouth; only a few domestic beers - by the bottle - were on sale. The kitchen hadn't come online yet. And the place was so empty it echoed. It was about 1 a.m. and only a few inebriated stragglers remained from the Monday night party Noise in the Basement. But the night wasn't a total bust, thanks to the two bartenders on duty.

This week's bar review is on Baltimore Soundstage, the music venue that replaces Mist (formerly Iguana Cantina) in the Inner Harbor. From the review : "Service is one of Soundstage's best qualities. The crowds have so far been uneven, and the bar and kitchen still haven't become fully operational. Meanwhile, the best thing that can be said about the room is that it'd be a great place to throw a homecoming dance. " Agree or disagree with the review? How was the City Paper party?

Deep in the cellar beneath the Recher Theatre , Buddy Hilsberg curates a museum of sorts. He's got boxes filled with the silly rider demands of every band that's headlined the Towson club. He's saved pieces of wall signed by everyone from Paul Reed Smith to the English Beat to Dick Dale. He's even got the autographs of bus drivers who brought all these musicians to play. "It's history to me," said the silver-haired manager who's been with the York Road concert hall since it opened 17 years ago. And it's history for everyone else now, too, as the Recher, one of Maryland's smallest but best known live music venues, held its last concert Sunday.

Inside the once-bustling movie theater on North Avenue, moss thrives on shattered marble walls. Broken tiles hang from the ceiling. Rainwater pours through the roof. But this derelict structure is now seen as a future centerpiece for the growing midtown arts district. A nonprofit developer, backed financially by the Maryland Institute College of Art and a private foundation, envisions the Art Deco building as the home of film screenings, music venues, artists' studios, galleries, a playhouse and a restaurant.

Who knew, apparently references in Jonathan Franzen novels pay off. The 9:30 Club has been named one of America's most influential clubs by Billboard magazine. In an item published last week, the club was included alongside New York City's Bowery Room and West Hollywood's The Troubadour in a list of the ten most influential clubs in the country. The 9:30 Club, heavily name-checked in Franzen's "Freedom," is the "best-designed working club in the country," says one of the music vets quoted in the magazine.

After more than two hours of spirited testimony, the city Board of Municipal Zoning Appeals voted unanimously last night to support the controversial transformation of a Fells Point restaurant into a major music venue.The 5-0 vote allows Damian Bohager, operator of Bohager's Bar and Grill at 515 S. Eden St., to keep his elevated concert stage despite community opposition."The evidence shows that if we denied this use, there would be a serious adverse impact on [Bohager's] business," said Carolyn B. Joyner, a board member.
