    Baltimore Museum of Art mounts exhibit of 20th-century avant-garde painter Max Weber
    Baltimore helped the avant-garde painter Max Weber forge a national reputation in 1915. Now, nearly 100 years later, this could be the city where the late artist begins his long-overdue comeback. It's not that critics and curators are unfamiliar with...

    Free Music Friday! A power-pop jolt from reunited North Carolina band The dB's
    The dB's -- one of the greatest, most-overlooked rock bands of the 1980s -- is back together with its original lineup and a new album of fresh material. For me, this is more exciting than the Beach Boys mending fences with Brian Wilson. The new dB's...
