The Black Keys have predictably sold out their show at the Verizon Center this Friday. But there's no need to pay a scalper or StubHub your life's savings for tickets. It's likely the band will return to the area this summer to play Merriweather Post Pavilion, says a reliable source with knowledge of the band's tour schedule. An announcement with the date is said to be forthcoming. Meanwhile, we've reached out to the band's reps for confirmation and we'll update when we hear back.  It would be the band's second recent appearance at Merriweather - they were one of the headliners at last year's Virgin Mobile FreeFest, where they gave one of the best performances of the night . They are on the road promoting new album "El Camino.

Sarah McLachlan is usually pretty gung-ho about interviews. She's a good talker and clearly enjoys sharing her ideas.On this particular afternoon, however, the 26-year old Canadian singer is somewhat less than pumped, what with six interviews on her schedule and a bad cold working on her throat. "I'm getting laryngitis," she complains, then quickly corrects herself. "Well, I'm trying not to get laryngitis, I guess is the way to put it."Still, she doesn't seem too worried. Apart from the cold, things have been "fantastic" for her on the road so far. Not only is her third album, "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy," selling better than either album before it, but she believes this current tour boasts her "best live show yet."

"Teamwork makes the dream work" was the motto for the first night of the live playoff rounds. Finally, America gets its chance to vote on who moves on to the Top 12. There was no time for nerves or mistakes as the remaining four members of Adam's and Usher's teams faced off in night one of the three night event. It was all about stamina as Team Usher kicked off the show with a performance of Sam Sparrow's “Black and Gold" after a training session in a boxing ring (or maybe shameless early promotion for Usher's upcoming acting gig as boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard … either way we will take it)

Although it probably wasn't intended as such, founding the Lilith Fair was probably the smartest career move Sarah McLachlan could have made.Before Lilith, McLachlan was a marginal act at best, a smart, emotionally eloquent singer/songwriter from Canada whose heartfelt, energetic concert performances had earned her a small but fervent following. Now, as the all-female Lilith Fair heads off for its third (and reputedly final) tour around America, McLachlan is a bona fide pop star, with an instantly recognizable name and several Top-10 hits to her credit.

THE PROMISED LANDVarious Artists (Columbia 66969)As a social document, the Discovery Channel series "The Promised Land" offers a fascinating look at why and how blacks moved from the rural South to the urban North. As an album, "The Promised Land" tells an equally complex, somewhat more diffuse tale. In addition to an impressive array of historical recordings documenting the shifting tides of American popular music -- everything from Robert Johnson's "Sweet Home Chicago" to Sly and the Family Stone's "Stand" to Public Enemy's "Bring the Noise" -- this double album also includes new recordings that demonstrate how that heritage continues to make its impact felt.

Singer, songwriter and musician Lisa Loeb had her first hit single before she even recorded her first album."It was a mixed blessing," says Loeb, who has just released her second album, "Firecracker." The hit single in question, "Stay," first released on the soundtrack for 1994's "Reality Bites," propelled Loeb into the spotlight. "I had written it without entertainment-industry interference. It was done in a pure way."But with the single's success came tour dates and a slew of marketing responsibilities that did not allow Loeb time to get to work on her first album for nearly a year.

Sarah McLachlanSurfacing (Arista/Nettwerk 18970)Rock and roll being loud by nature, it's often assumed that quiet is just a cover-up for having nothing of substance to say. It's a ridiculous notion, of course, but seldom has it been put to rest as succinctly as on Sarah McLachlan's fourth album, "Surfacing." Even though there are times when McLachlan's voice barely rises above a murmur, her approach is so suited to the songs that the quiet itself seems to draw you in. "I Love You" is a case in point, a whispery dream of a song that turns its softness into strength as McLachlan takes us through all the warm and fuzzy feelings that come with true love.
