It could be said that Sheila Song's choice of career as a geriatric pharmacist is in herblood. For it is the close relationship the Carney resident has long shared with her grandmother, Cheng Soon Song, now 89, who had a major role in Song's upbringing, and who led Song to see that there is both need and reward in working with the elderly. The Loch Raven High School graduate, Song, 25, recently earned her Doctorate of Pharmacy after completing an intensive four-year program at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy in Baltimore.

"Its one of my favorite places in the country to play," said Leo, who knows his venues; the band does on average 200 gigs a year. But on Tuesday, when the four-piece group swings by Baltimore, it won't be performing at the Charles Village hangout. Instead, they'll perform at the Gspot on the outskirts of Hampden.
