The Oranges Band, a staple of Baltimore's independent rock scene last decade, will end its hiatus with a mini-tour later this summer. The Baltimore date is scheduled for Sept. 12 at Metro Gallery. Although never officially broken up, the Oranges Band has not been active in recent years. That changed in March when a solo set by singer/guitarist Roman Kuebler at the Ottobar led to an impromptu reunion between Kuebler and his bandmates Pat Martin and Lee Ashlin. Now, the band is heading on the road for four dates (see below)

"Didn't stay with their runners. Didn't hit the target. Didn't play well. That about sums it up."The Spirit was stopped three shy of the National Professional Soccer League record of 13 straight season-opening victories by the 1989-90 Canton Invaders.

Kiss rocker Gene Simmons and actress/model wife Shannon Tweed caused quite a stir at Preakness 2013 when the two stopped by the Christine A. Moore Millinery tent in the corporate village of Pimlico Race Track. Dozens of onlookers watched and snapped photos as the two combed through Moore's collection of colorful creations. After Tweed tried on a number of hats from the New York-based designer, she settled on the Thrill hat, a wide-brim sheer pink hat topped with a long feather. The hat cost a pretty penny: $900.

Of all the cities Chris Tomlin plays, Baltimore is one of his favorites. "I don't know what it is, but it seems like there's nights where you feel really connected to the people immediately," Tomlin said. "There's other nights where you have to work at it. At Baltimore, you never have to work at it. " Tomlin, 40, is returning to Baltimore on Friday, to perform at 1st Mariner Arena . It's the third stop of his Burning Lights tour, promoting the album of the same name that topped the Billboard 200 chart - only the fourth Christian rock album to do so. "It's pretty crazy," Tomlin said.

Get Arbouretum frontman Dave Heumann started on certain topics - such as maximizing the sound quality of vinyl, fictitious narrators in songwriting, photography - and expect long-winding exchanges full of ideas and anecdotes. But ask the 40-year-old Roland Park musician why he started playing music in the first place and the answer is uncharacteristically succinct. "You start a band and you get to play guitar solos for as long as you want," Heumann said from a corner of a coffeeshop late last month.

Guys, it's election season - obvious, I know, right? But this is important when it comes to “The Voice” because tonight's show was cut short because of the third and final presidential debate. Now, this is a space free of any politics (a safe place, if you will) but I have to hammer this home: IT IS SO IMPORTANT YOU VOTE…for your favorite singers on “The Voice.”  But, right now we're still wrapping up the battles, and audience votes won't count just yet, but they will.

When Alabama Shakes take the Virgin Mobile FreeFest stage on Saturday, the quartet - all from Athens, Alabama - will likely play its biggest hit, "Hold On," within the first few songs. This is a deliberate move, and also a sort of challenge to the audience: With our most popular song out of the way early on, will you stick around? "'Hold On' is still the one," said guitarist Heath Fogg. "The iPhones come out when we play that one. We play it first, second [or] third. We get it over with.

Most weeks for the past year, Rachel Taft has headed to the Canton Safeway or Middle River Costco to pick up several pounds of steak or tofu for dinner. Unlike most bulk shoppers, Taft wasn't cooking for several children - she was feeding a loose-knit family of punk-rock bands at her Highlandtown home. Last year, Taft founded Feed the Scene, a "band and breakfast" which provides room and board to artists with small (or no) budgets. Since then, she's cooked for ska punks Less Than Jake, punk-rocker Joey Cape from Lagwagon and more than 170 other groups.

Players on one team went into the locker room at halftime hugging and slapping high-fives. The others -- the visiting Detroit Rockers -- went in shaking their heads. Not because of the scoreboard, which showed a modest 7-4 Blast lead. But for the manner in which the last two points were recorded by the Blast, with 0.4 seconds left on the clock. That just about did it for the Rockers, who exited the field after a 13-4 loss in front of 4,752 at the Baltimore Arena last night in much the same manner they did at halftime.

All things considered, the Blast couldn't have scripted a better home opener than last Friday's 21-20, roller-coaster win over the Kansas City Attack. Featured was a gut-check fourth quarter that had four lead-changes, two in the last 53 seconds that displayed the team's character and had the 8,103 in attendance on the edges of their seats. Lee Tschantret's deciding two-pointer with 30 seconds left helped give the Blast the all-important first win, and at 7:35 tonight, when the Detroit Rockers visit the Baltimore Arena, the team will look to build on that.

As a Baltimore City resident, I have enjoyed attending the Artscape Festival every year. Each year it's been a wonderful and fun family event where I can take my children and they can enjoy the food, craft booths, kids' activities and music. This year, however, something has come up that concerns me and threatens my ability to enjoy this event with my children. Recently it was announced that Brian McKnight, a popular R&B artist, would headline this year's festival, performing on the main stage July 20. I have to imagine that the event's organizers and those responsible for booking musical talent were aware of the recent controversy over Mr. McKnight's disgusting music, which makes me wonder all the more why anyone would think he is appropriate as a headliner for a family event.
