"Stomp" is street percussion: push brooms in counterpoint, a tattoo on a teapot, a well-tuned team of toilet plungers."Stomp" is eight performers -- five men, three women -- banging on every kind of imaginable object, and some that aren't. And sometimes "Stomp" is softness itself, tickling the ear with a xylophone of Zippo lighters or the snap-top cap of a Snapple flavored tea played like a castanet."Stomp" is grunge clothes, pierced ears, big pants, sweat-soaked T-shirts and tank tops. Stomp is everything but the kitchen sink -- and, in one number, it is the kitchen sink.

Stomp the Yard is as predictable as movies come: Loner with a chip on his shoulder finds acceptance and maturity by channeling his talents into something socially acceptable and finding the love of a great gal. But at least that workhorse of a formula is being used in service of a film that extols the virtues of higher education and a proud tradition in the black community. The movie lives and dies on the energy of stepping, the combination of high-stepping, line-dancing and drill-sergeant maneuvering that has a long history at traditionally black colleges.

Forty years after Frank Gehry completed a series of buildings in the then-fledgling "new town" of Columbia, the current master developer wants him to come back and design more. The Dallas-based Howard Hughes Corp., which in 2010 took over as lead developer of Columbia's town center, invited the acclaimed architect to spend a day touring the town as part of its effort to spur development around the Merriweather Post concert pavilion and the lakefront. On Thursday, Gehry - who has created such buildings as the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles - returned for the first time in more than two decades to take a whirlwind tour, learn how his local designs are holding up, and see what future role he might play in the town created by the Rouse Co. The California-based architect, 83, said he has not visited Columbia since the early 1990s - before company founder James Rouse died of Lou Gehrig's Disease and Rouse executive Michael Spear died in a plane crash.

On a whim in June 1996, Baltimorean Sheilynn Wactor went to an audition for "Stomp." "They were looking for percussionists who could move and dancers who had rhythm, and that doesn't describe me because I'm an actor," she recalled last week. "Then I thought, `What have I got to lose?' that it would be a great first audition experience." Not only did she get cast in the show -- more about the audition later -- but over the past four years it has taken her to Europe and South America, as well as throughout the United States.

CELLULOID SYMPHONY Fans of film know the importance of a musical score. Grand and powerful, solemn and melancholy or any of the tuneful shades in between, music complements and enhances a movie. Saturday, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra tips its hat to the music of the big screen at its latest SummerFest concert. The BSO, along with conductor Andrew Constantine, presents "Music of the Silver Screen," a concert of theme songs, overtures, suites and other scores from a number of blockbuster films, including Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean.

Veteran mixed martial artist and Baltimore native Sherman “The Tank” Pendergarst has lost his battle with cancer Friday. He was 46. I was first made aware of Pendergarst from an article I read on the best MMA fighter from each state . He was selected as the representive for Maryland, and after reading the article over a year ago, I befriended Sherman through Facebook. If you look at his professional record of 11 wins and 18 losses, you might not think he was that good of a fighter.

Rich Franklin came into his fight with Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva at UFC 147 with two strikes against him. The first strike being that he was a late replacement for an injured Vitor Belfort, and the that he was fighting in Silva's backyard. But it was Franklin's striking that earned him a unanimous decision Saturday at Mineirinho Arena in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. Franklin (29-6, UFC 14-5) controlled four of the five rounds, the only exception being the second when Silva (34-12-1, UFC 4-7)

With one fell swoop, the Goucher men's lacrosse team may have completed two assignments on its to-do list. The No. 13 Gophers' 13-8 victory over Scranton Saturday not only helped them avenge a loss to the Royals in last year's Landmark Conference Tournament final, but Goucher moved one step closer to preventing Scranton from repeating as tournament champion. The Royals' loss at Gopher Stadium in Towson combined with Catholic's 14-11 win against Susquehanna puts them in fifth place in the league.

James MacMillan, the multi-faceted Scottish composer and conductor, is the latest "Beethoven of today" to participate in the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's season. Although a considerable force on the contemporary scene, he is not exactly well known around here, so his Explorer Series venture with the BSO provides a welcome introduction. MacMillan's intriguing calling card includes two of his own works on the first half of the program - each containing a bundle of folk tunes, classical hit parade allusions, spiky harmonies and dry wit - and Beethoven's Symphony No. 2 on the second.

On a steamy night in Baltimore last week, Jordan Thomas drove his fraternity brothers through two-plus hours of running, calisthenics and dance. A videographer from ESPN followed their every move. Banter filled the air. On a parking lot at Morgan State University, his squad -- Iota Phi Theta fraternity brothers from Morgan State and Coppin State universities -- was drilling for the Super Bowl of their sport. It is hard to say what brought this unheralded group to the brink of "Super Stomp," otherwise known as the Stomping on the Yard National Step Show Championship.

It was the first day of the Maryland General Assembly session, but as Baltimore City Council President and soon-to-be-mayor Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake wove through the aisles Wednesday, it seemed more like a family reunion. The legislators hugged, kissed and all but pinched the cheeks of Rawlings-Blake, daughter of the late Del. Howard "Pete" Rawlings, a State House legend. Some reminisced about her childhood, when she tailed her father through the hallways. Many assured Rawlings-Blake that her father was beaming down from heaven.

Chris Carr could embrace being a Raider, and he enjoyed his time as a Titan. But in his heart of hearts, playing in the Ravens' vaunted defense was a deal he could not turn down last offseason. Carr, who signed a two-year, $5 million contract in March, comes full circle Sunday, when the Ravens try to clinch an AFC wild-card slot at Oakland against his old team, the Raiders. Carr spent the first three years of his NFL career in Oakland before signing with the Tennessee Titans in 2008 as a restricted free agent.
