Seeing J. Roddy Walston and the Business in concert always guarantees one thing: You'll leave much sweatier than you arrived. Since arriving in Baltimore from Tennessee in 2004, the quartet's workmanlike reputation has been built on its raucous, give-everything-you-have-and-more live show, where perspiration simply comes with the territory. But J. Roddy Walston and the Business were different from the other Baltimore-bred bands of the time. They weren't the lauded experimentalists of Animal Collective or the cloaked-in-mystery duo of Beach House.

Every spring, indie bands head to Austin, Texas, in droves for the South by Southwest Music and Media Conference. So do the industry folks. The festival, which turns 25 this year, is considered the end-all, be-all for up-and-coming bands. Thousands of acts turn up to test their mettle in front of even more critics, label folks and fans. A good string of performances could push a band into the national spotlight; one bad show can be enough to send them home, tail between legs. This year, several Baltimore bands are entering the fray — most making repeat showings, playing highbrow showcases and fringe spots.

When it was time to record their second album, J. Roddy Walston and the Business flew west. The four rock 'n' rollers left the Baltimore basement where they had cut their first album on a $600 home digital recorder and went to Sound City Studios in Los Angeles. Walston said the upgraded digs were meant to polish their homespun sound for what was to be their record label debut. But in explaining the band's choice to record there, he also noted it was where Nirvana and Weezer had recorded their seminal "Nevermind" and "Pinkerton" albums.

J. Roddy Walston and the Business aren't the only longtime local musicians getting a homecoming at Rams Head Live Friday night. Michael Freeland, the rapper who's been working in the city for the last decade as Mickey Free and earlier as Bow 'n' Arrow, will open for the Business. Free recently released his first solo album, using in the title a pejorative word for white people who emulate the mannerisms and style of African-American culture.

The four guys in J. Roddy Walston and the Business want to make a small but crucial distinction: They're not a rock band. They're a rock 'n' roll band. It might seem like a subtle point, but for the Baltimore group, those two extra words are all the difference. Nickelback plays rock. Jerry Lee Lewis, one of the band's heroes, plays rock 'n' roll. "Rock 'n' roll is big and mysterious and romantic," singer/pianist J. Roddy Walston said. "We feel like rock 'n' roll does matter.

In 1885, a wealthy doctor built a home like a castle in one of Baltimore's grandest neighborhoods, aiming, no doubt, for a showplace. When George Lavdas and Jeremy Walston bought that Bolton Hill property more than 100 years later, they, too, wanted a showplace and figured if they threw enough money into an elaborate restoration, they could restore the riches that time had erased. They think they succeeded. The Maryland Historic Trust begs to differ. Despite the homeowners pouring $720,000 into the restoration, replicating everything from intricate plaster moldings to a majestic mahogany staircase, and despite the work earning a local renovation prize, the trust refused to award the project historic tax credits, ruling that the work did not respect the home's original character.
