Ahh, a festival. Just the name inspires a sense of adventure and light-heartedness. The Shindig - held Sept. 14 at Carroll Park and produced by 24-7 Entertainment - delivered on all fronts. Featuring heavy-hitters like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Clutch, Gaslight Anthem, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and the Dropkick Murphys, the Shindig came through with an eclectic mix of acts for all tastes. In the interest of full disclosure, I will admit that I missed the first four acts: Victims of Experience, Bad Seed Rising, The Glenmont Popes and Larry and His Flask.

In its second year at Pigtown's Carroll Park, The Shindig Music Festival is a rock show in the broad tradition of the national festival movement that provides distinctly Baltimorean. A mix of local vendors like Little Havana and Mothers Grille flanked the sides of each stage alongside corporate vendors such as Jagermeister and Jack Daniels. Two opposing stages provided 11 hours of eclectic takes on rock music, and a lineup of bands that included several local acts alongside international touring groups.  Rebel Inc. Rebel Inc. was charged with getting early festival-goers going at the un-rock 'n' roll time of 12:30 p.m. It was a daunting task.

That was an interesting shindig Gerry L. Brewster hosted on Flag Day at the Towson American Legion hall.Mr. Brewster, the freshman state delegate from the Towson area, held his first political fund-raiser since being elected in 1990. About 650 people attended, paying $40 a head. The delegate reported a profit of $18,000 for his coffers.Such rubber-chicken feasts are standard in local politics, and it's just as common to see Democrats and Republicans schmoozing one another at these events, especially in Baltimore County, where the line between the two parties often blurs.

This year in particular should be a time of reflection for Perry Farrell, and yet the lead singer of Jane's Addiction can only seem to think ahead. In late August, “Nothing's Shocking” - the Los Angeles quartet's first studio album that helped lead alternative rock, with singles like “Jane Says” and “Mountain Song,” to its fruitful '90s - turned 25. Following a current touring trend, Jane's Addiction performed the record in its entirety earlier this year in Las Vegas and England.

Back in the mid-1960s, before "Tootsie," "Mr. Mom" and the infamous shower scene on "Late Night With David Letterman," actress Teri Garr was dancer Teri Garr.Specifically, Garr was one of a corps of professional dancers who appeared on the ABC-TV series "Shindig!" -- a half-hour, prime-time, rock 'n' roll cavalcade on which the dancers often did not so much dance as explode into frenzies of limb flailing that resembled a marionette show performed during an 8.6 Richter scale quake.It was a start.

How do you say chutzpah in Italian?The Versace shindig was everything a fashion event should be. There were stars -- tousled Timothy Hutton and Patti Labelle.

There's a lesser-known holiday tradition that I'd like to share with everyone: The Mid-December New Year's Eve freakout. New Year's Eve has a way of sneaking up on people. Come December, I always get e-mails asking about the best New Year's Eve party in town. So instead of doing a giant roundup of every event I can find (which I've done in the past - it's a huge headache), I decided to boil it down to the Top 7. As you'll notice, I left out the Inner Harbor festivities, because just about everybody and their brother goes to that one, and I wanted to toss out some alternatives.

The Towsontown Spring Festival - once a small college art exhibit on a single street, now a major fair that draws 200,000 or more - promises even more attractions this year, its organizers say. This weekend, the festival honors area men and women in the armed forces. Saturday's opening ceremonies feature a U.S. Air Force flyover, a bagpipe procession and a Color Guard salute. In the NASCAR area, an exhibit introduced last year, 15 cars from drivers Casey Mears and Maryland native Donnie Neuenberger will be showcased along with others from Dover Brooks Hotel & Casino and Huff Tire Co. at the corner of Washington and Allegheny avenues.

Sounds of swing music intermingled with the rustle of ball gowns on concrete, as guests swirled through the renovation at Tide Point for the Dot.Com Gala.

You never saw so many "students" so happy to be back in school. Only these were grown-ups -- supporters of the Baltimore School for the Arts -- getting together for the school's annual fund-raiser, "Expressions 2000." First came an evening "class" in theater, music or art, then dinner in the school's ballroom, followed by a performance by past and current students. Although everyone wore a name tag, it wasn't hard to recognize many of Baltimore's movers and shakers in this student population of 450, including: Erin and Doug Becker, event co-chairs; Amy Elias and Sally Michel, past chairs; Clair Zamoiski Segal, school board chair; Sharon Nevins and Jim Dale, board members; Stanley Romanstein, school director; Leslie Shepard, dean of arts; Claire Ingalls, Towson University music educator; former Mayor Kurt Schmoke, partner with Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering; Ron Daniel, Baltimore police commissioner; and Martha Macks, president of Goya Girl Press.

Halloween at the Inner Harbor has never been this exciting. In previous years, it's been the same food, shopping, museums, live performances and tourists -- lots of tourists. But this year, Baltimoreans are in for a treat with the waterfront's first Halloween Around the Harbor. "This is just the beginning of our steps to reintroduce the waterfront to Baltimoreans," says Laurie Schwartz, managing consultant to the Waterfront Partnership, the organization behind the event. "We want to make sure that Baltimore residents and families come and enjoy everything the waterfront has to offer."
