I’m an unabashed Third Eye Blind fan. This tune rules. See you Saturday.

I couldn’t tell you if I enjoyed Joe Nichols. I can tell you that I enjoy sleepy little smiles…

Were you listening to “Web Junk” the other day when I played the clip of Boyz II Men singing “End of the Road” with Charles Barkley? Did you hear me singing along? You can assume I am again as you listen this time…

Sister Hazel is playing Arundel Mills on my birthday. Don’t ask. Just invite.

9. Guy Torry (Thursday-Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Gabriel Iglesias (Friday 8pm D.A.R. Constitution Hall); Laugh Til It Hurts feat. Anthony Anderson/Bill Bellamy (Saturday 7pm D.A.R. Constitution Hall); Tommy Davidson (Thursday-Saturday DC Improv); Maryland Renaissance Festival (Saturday & Sunday Revel Grove); Ukrainian Festival (Saturday & Sunday Patterson Park)

I once stumbled into the Ukrainian Festival after a Ravens game once a few years back. I couldn’t have had more fun. There was dancing, sausage and potato pancakes. It was a lot like my 13th birthday party…except we did all of those things at the old Funjungle in Perry Hall.

And since there’s at least half a chance I’ll forget to say something about these guys during the course of RennFest, I should probably do it now. These guys are Hack and Slash. They’re humorous fellas…
