The owner of Baltimore's Sonar nightclub was sentenced Thursday to 10 years in prison for his role in supervising a drug dealing and money laundering operation, federal prosecutors announced. Daniel Gerard McIntosh, 38, of Sparks, was part of a large drug operation busted by the Drug Enforcement Agency when it seized more than 80 pounds of marijuana and $30,000 in cash from the group's headquarters in the 3500 block of Hickory Ave., in Hampden. The agency also found 30 cell phones, documentation of a plane purchased for $450,000, books showing more than $14.5 million in marijuana sales, money counters and fake IDs in the sting.

Milan's dancing days are over. The Little Italy establishment is now prohibited from allowing or providing live entertainment,  including disc jockeys, on its premises. The decision was made Thursday in the District Court of Maryland for Baltimore City in what amounted to a default hearing. No one representing Milan showed up. Milan's opponents have long claimed that the establishment was a nightclub masquerading as a restaurant, and have repeatedly pressed the Baltimore City Liquor License Board to take action.

MOSCOW - An explosion apparently caused by pyrotechnics tore through a nightclub in the Russian city of Perm early Saturday, killing more than 100 people, according to emergency officials quoted by state television. It was not immediately clear if the pyrotechnics were kept in storage at the club or being used as part of a show like in the fire that killed 100 people at a rock club in Rhode Island in 2003. In the chaotic aftermath of the blast and subsequent fire, casualty figures differed.

Nearly a year of construction and renovation come to an end this Valentine's Day weekend when Torrent Lounge, the nightclub replacing the Recher Theatre on York Road in Towson, opens to provide a thumping heartbeat for Baltimore's electronic music scene. "There hasn't been anything like this in Maryland, ever, from what we've been told by people in the scene," Brian Recher, co-owner of Torrent Lounge, said. The Recher family has owned the former Towson Theatre space since 1959, Brian Recher said.

Sean Gamble's friends and family shared tears, laughter and flashes of anger Monday night at a candlelight vigil for the 22-year-old killed in this weekend's nightclub melee. Close to 200 huddled together for 80 minutes on the Woodlawn High School football field, where Gamble had been a star football player, to pray, sing and remember the young man — called "Loz" by many — for his cheerfulness, his fierce athletic spirit and his strong sense of friendship and family. "He was charismatic, always with a smile, always in a good mood," says Tyra Wildy, a classmate and former manager of the football team.

A city agency is apparently persuaded that Milan looks, swims, and quacks so much like a nightclub that it's probably a nightclub. But, it says, Milan has no business being one. The establishment's opponents from the get-go have claimed that Milan was a nightclub masquerading as a restaurant, and they've repeatedly pressed the Baltimore City Liquor License Board to take action. And while the liquor board has historically been the agency to discipline and sanction license-holding establishments, it appears that a new city agency has stepped into the fray.

The city liquor board has agreed to let the owner of Club Voltage keep his liquor license, reversing an earlier ruling, on the condition that he not open a bar at the same Southeast Baltimore location. The Board of Liquor License Commissioners said Thursday that owner Louis J. Principio III could keep the potentially lucrative license as long as he does not use it at the site of the huge dance club at the Baltimore Travel Plaza on O'Donnell Street. The board revoked the license in March after complaints about the club inside the old Greyhound bus terminal, including a Dec. 2 shooting on the dance floor.

Just before 11 p.m., the night's first dancer entered the floor. A young woman dressed in a white top and black pants earnestly bopped her blonde hair back and forth while motioning to some nearby friends to join her. By the bar, a couple of guys smoked e-hookahs and e-cigarettes as a relentlessly propulsive house song boomed from the speakers. This was the new Torrent Nightclub on a recent Thursday night. If anyone wondered how recognizable the former Recher Theatre would be after nearly a year of construction and renovation to the old rock venue, the answer was plain to see: Not at all. Since the February 2013 announcement of the new Torrent, there has been much debate over whether or not the Recher family's decision to shift from alternative-rock hall to electronic dance music nightclub was sound, and how much the move was driven by trend-hopping in the name of survival.

Baltimore's liquor board on Thursday revoked the license of a massive Southeast Baltimore dance club, citing incidents in which a patron was shot on the dance floor and the club's owner released pepper spray into a large crowd while riding on a golf cart. The Voltage club, which billed itself as the city's largest, operated out of an old Greyhound bus terminal in the Baltimore Travel Plaza on O'Donnell Street. Voltage, which has been open for about 16 months, ran afoul of police and the liquor board on consecutive weekends in November and into December.

Michael G. Athas, who during a more than 30-year career in the entertainment business established some of the Baltimore area's most memorable and legendary nightclubs, died Monday from a glioblastoma at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. He was one day shy of this 87th birthday. "Mike was really the king of music in Baltimore. ... He was just sensational. He brought all the big bands to town," said George Moniodis, a longtime friend. The son of Greek immigrants George and Arhontoula Athanasakos, Michael George Athanasakos - who later changed the family's name to Athas - was born in York, Pa. "During the Great Depression, financial strain necessitated his father to send the family to Greece to live with grandparents while he pursued scarce job opportunities in the U.S.," said a son, George M. Athas of North Potomac.
