Tom Hanks not getting an Academy Award nomination for Captain Phillips is the type of stuff Congress should be spending time investigating.

Also, if you’re at the Boat Show-please get me this boat.

9. Moe. (Saturday 8pm Rams Head Live); 10 Years (Friday 8:30pm Baltimore Soundstage); Little River Band (Thursday 8pm Rams Head on Stage), Marc Cohn (Saturday 7pm Rams Head on Stage); Ja Rule (Friday 8pm Howard Theatre), Martha Reeves (Saturday 8pm Howard Theatre); Cowboy Mouth (Friday 6pm 9:30 Club), Reverend Horton Heat (Sunday 7pm 9:30 Club), Brandon Boyd and Sons of the Sea (Monday 7pm 9:30 Club); Lyle Lovett & John Hiatt (Tuesday & Wednesday 7:30pm Birchmere), WAR (Sunday 7:30pm Birchmere); Tedeschi Trucks Band (Saturday 8pm Warner Theatre); New Politics (Sunday 8pm Rock N Roll Hotel); Pixies (Sunday 8pm Strathmore); Young The Giant “Mind Over Matter” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

moe. are enjoyable music performers.

Oh man. I would totally go see Lyle Lovett…if I had a boat.

Tedeschi Trucks is wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. Here they do John Prine.

New Politics is the band that does that song you sing along to despite not knowing a single word.

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 09 July 2013 by Glenn Clark

Here’s Ben Folds playing “Army”. I enjoy this.

I’ve noticed a few more “dispensaries” popping up around town. In what I’m sure is an unrelated story, Phish is coming!

I have kickball Thursday night. But I’d give anything to be able to skip and go see Sister Hazel instead…

The bad news for you if you’re going to see Macca Friday night in DC is that I don’t THINK The Boss will be there with him…

9. Keenen Ivory Wayans (Thursday-Sunday Baltimore Comedy Factory); John Witherspoon (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); The Gathering: Food Truck Rally (Friday 5pm Keswick Castle); Caribbean Carnival Festival (Saturday & Sunday Lake Clifton Park); Annapolis Irish Festival (Friday & Saturday Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds); Spring Breakers” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); Grown Ups 2” and “Pacific Rim” out in theaters (Friday)

Is there any chance that KIW could put together a complete In Living Color reunion this weekend?

The release of “Spring Breakers” probably means this is my last chance to post this picture…

Patti LaBelle (Saturday & Sunday M&T Bank Stadium); Jay-Z “Magna Carta Holy Grail” available in stores/on iTunes (Sunday)

I’m more than a bit embarrassed by how much I enjoy Chris Daughtry…

The Doobie Brothers made the most important music video of all time that wasn’t “Virtual Insanity” by Jamiroquai…

Go see Wild Feathers. Now.

I dare you to watch this whole Verve Pipe video and not cry.

Three Dog Night/Jefferson Starship (Friday-Sunday Dundalk Heritage Park); Mavis Staples “One True Vine” and Wale “Gifted” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

I’m going on vacation next week, but apparently the music world picked this week? I mean, the Counting Crows used to be really good but their show might as well be in Eastern Europe…

I love the idea that Ballyhoo! might be Charm City’s next significant band…

Jason Isbell is a rock star, but again…how far can I go to see him?

Mavis Staples…Mavis Staples…I could sing of my love for Mavis Staples…

9. Tracy Morgan (Saturday 8pm Warner Theatre), Guy Torry (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv), Paul Mooney (Thursday-Sunday Baltimore Comedy Factory); The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); White House Down” and “The Heat” out in theaters (Friday); “The Gathering” (Friday 5pm McHenry Row/Penn Station Plaza)

I’m just going to suggest you watch this Tracy Morgan/David Letterman interview on repeat…

I think I might start my own food truck for “The Gathering.” I’ll probably call it “Historic Pigtown”…

Drew Forrester and I are big Ra Ra Riot fans. For good reason.

I’ll be at ZBB Saturday night. I hope he does this again.

The smartest thing the Stones have EVER done is (apparently) hire Gary Clark Jr. to join the band. He’s the best. Ever.

I haven’t begged for FATT tickets yet, but I will. They’re the other best. Ever.

9. Daniel Tosh (Friday 7pm & 9:30pm Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric); Seth Meyers (Friday 8pm Warner Theatre); Carlos Mencia (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); Monsters University” and “World War Z” out in theaters (Friday); Baltimore Dragon Boat Challenge (Saturday 8am Tide Point Marina)

After hanging out with Jay Pharoah last week, I sorta feel like part of the SNL family. Oh wait, did you not hear? I hung out with Jay Pharoah last week…

And Seth Meyers is hilarious. Hilarious.

Frank Turner is the guy that does that song you don’t even realize how much you love.

Everyone I know who likes good music likes Foals. So…umm…maybe you should like Foals?

I would really like to have someone go with me to Alpha Rev Thursday night. Anyone available?

Also, if you’d like to drive me to DC to see The Heavy; I’d like to discuss that as well.

9. Honfest (Saturday & Sunday Hampden); St. Nicholas Greek Folk Festival (Thursday-Sunday Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church); Annapolis Arts and Crafts Festival (Saturday & Sunday Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium); Tommy Davidson (Thursday-Saturday Baltimore Comedy Factory); Bobby Slayton (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv); A Good Day to Die Hard“, “Warm Bodies” and “Identity Thief” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); The Internship” out in theaters (Friday)

The Internship appears as though it’s probably garbage; but it doesn’t change anything about the history of Wedding Crashers. Wedding Crashers was freaking fantastic. That will never change no matter what amount of hot garbage is involved in this not-so-sequely sequel.

Also, if I can’t make it down to Saint Nicholas; could someone bring me just about as much of this as possible?

The xx? In the words of Joe Flacco, “I don’t know.”

Sister Hazel should legally be forced to play a show here once a week.

This Ben Harper/Charlie Musselwhite thing is a “yes.”

Okay. Nothing to see here obviously.

I hate admitting how much I enjoy this Ellie Goulding tune…

I’ve been a Janelle Monae fan since the first time I knew there was such a thing as Janelle Monae…

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 03 September 2012 by Glenn Clark

Honorable Mention: Auto Racing-NASCAR Federated Auto Parts 400 (Saturday 7pm from Richmond live on ABC); Boxing: Andre Ward vs. Chad Dawson (Saturday 9:45pm from Oakland live on HBO); High School Football: Catonsville @ Perry Hall (Friday 7pm), Patriot Football Classic: DeMatha vs. Calvert Hall (Friday 7:30pm Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium), St. Peter’s Prep vs. McDonogh (Saturday 10:30am Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium), Landon vs. Annapolis Area Christian School (Saturday 1:30pm Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium), Don Bosco vs. Gilman (Saturday 7:30pm Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium)

10. Jason Aldean/Luke Bryan (Saturday 7:30pm Jiffy Lube Live), RUSH (Sunday 7:30pm Jiffy Lube Live); Ben Harper (Tuesday 7:30pm Wolf Trap); Theory Of A Deadman/Pop Evil (Wednesday 6pm Power Plant Live), Third Eye Blind (Thursday 8pm Power Plant Live); Joe Nichols (Friday 7pm Recher Theatre); Bob Mould (Saturday 7pm 9:30 Club), The Jesus And Mary Chain (Sunday 7pm 9:30 Club), Owl City (Monday 6pm 9:30 Club); Boyz II Men (Thursday & Friday 8pm Howard Theatre); Sister Hazel (Thursday 8pm Rams Head Center Stage); Oak Ridge Boys (Friday 7:30pm Maryland Theraputic Riding Farm); Imagine Dragons “Night Visions” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

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…

It’s really tough for me to choose whether I enjoy Sharon Jones or the Dap-Kings more…

Do people throw Wagon Wheels at OCMS shows? Should they just be called Old Crow Medicine Shows?

We all know America > Canada, but what do we make of the fact that Our Lady Peace is from Canada???

I’m man enough to admit I’m excited about Daughtry. Are you?

9. Tracy Morgan (Thursday 7:30pm & 10pm Howard Theatre); Jerry Seinfeld (Friday 7pm Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts); John Mulaney (Friday & Saturday DC Improv); “Hatfields & McCoys” available on Blu-Ray/DVD (Tuesday); “Totall Recall” out in theaters (Friday)

Total Recall is about three days away from release. The number three seems to be relevant for some other reason I can’t think of ohyeah…

Oh and also, here’s Tracy Morgan giving birth. Neat!
