This past weekend was packed with shows: J. Roddy Walston, the Get 'Em Mamis, Dashboard Confessional. Did anyone go see Erykah Badu at Rams Head? Our reviewer did not enjoy the show. That kind of weekend is gonna be a rarity this month. During the holidays, concerts and nightlife events, like everyone else, mostly take a break. That's especially true this week, with the biggest show a Tori Amos performance in Washington D.C. Elsewhere: Yelle, a college night at Baltimore Soundstage, Prince Rama, Yelle, Jane Birkin, Ultra Nate, and the Mid-Atlantic Holiday Beer Festival.

In a way, there's a lot of Led Zeppelin in the Tori Amos phenomenon. It isn't so much that Amos grew up idolizing the British heavy rockers (though she did) as it is the way her relationship with her audience and critics mirrors theirs. Led Zep, remember, was roundly dismissed by the reviewers, who called the band's music pretentious, overblown and muddled by mysticism -- charges that were also leveled at Amos' latest, "Boys for Pele."But in both cases, what the critics missed in their analysis the fans felt in their hearts.

Usually, when people in the music business talk about "the big picture," what they're thinking about is long-term sales strategy -- how to build a buzz around an artist, how to generate momentum on a project, how to navigate the transition from cult favorite to mass-market superstar.As such, it's fairly easy to imagine what those folks would see as Tori Amos' next move. Thanks to the fan-base she built with her last album, "Little Earthquakes," Amos now has all the earmarks of a cult star about to break big. Her concerts routinely sell out, and her current album, "Under the Pink," has passed the half-million mark and is still selling steadily.

Imagine, for a moment, that you're Tori Amos. You've spent your entire life as a musician, having been a piano prodigy at the Peabody Conservatory, a teen-age chanteuse working the Washington piano-bar scene, even a hair spray-and-spandex hard rock babe in L.A. -- and none of it seemed to work.Dejected, you retreat into yourself, and discover within your pain and anger an epiphany. Instead of making music for others, you DTC begin writing songs for yourself, and with this breakthrough comes a measure of passion, understanding and confidence that leaves your listeners awe-struck and enthralled.

NEW YORK -- In another life, Tori Amos' "Professional Widow" might have been a Led Zeppelin tune.Just listen to the way the opening notes growl, scraping up through the blues scale with the same jackhammer insistenceas "Black Dog" or "When the Levee Breaks." It's precisely the sort of fist-pumping power riff Jimmy Page would play -- except that Amos plays it on harpsichord."My musicians were dying to put guitar on this," Amos says, smiling smugly. Even bassist George Porter wanted to join in, take the heavy-rock route, and ride the power of the riff.

Did you know Tori Amos received a citation from the Mayor of Baltimore for a song about the 1980 Orioles? Or, that before Tupac Shakur was "West Coast," he was "East Coast" and a student at the Baltimore School of the Arts? Baltimore has been home to a surprising number of musicians in a variety of genres. Some of Baltimore's rockers are tied here by chance -- their parents happened to live in Charm City during their childhood: Frank Zappa, Talking Heads' David Byrne and The Cars' Ric Ocasek.
