    We've established that everyone -- even Madonna? -- loves Baltimore club music, except maybe Chris. Actually, we're not all that hot on it either. Although we're sometimes down with B-more in a theoretical, annoying-hipster kinda way, we've generally regarded it as weak tea to Detroit ghetto-tech's black coffee.

    Didn't have space to hype this in the paper, but G-squared has Ed OG -- sorry, we refuse to abide by the new punctuation -- at the Paradise. Big shouts to Mr. Peter Parker and the Leedz lads, who're singlehandedly keeping Boston in the game, show-wise. Not to mention they're bringing Devin the Dude up to the Middle East in a minute.

    Sorry. We just felt like running a picture of Avenged Sevenfold. We know we shouldn't like them -- it's sorta like back in the 1980s, how a bunch of dudes in Slayer shirts secretly owned a Tesla record -- but we do. For everyone who managed to keep his or her torch lit for Guns N' Roses and the Misfits through the grungy 1990s, there's now a champion, albeit one that's slouching towards metalcore's Gomorrah.

    NYC's electro-erotic mutant-disco diva Heloise comes with her own two-member 1980s-MTV dance squad. Don't tell anyone, but the backup duo are actually members of the painfully sexy Somerville modern-dance group Hoi Polloi. Did we say painfully sexy? Maybe dangerously sexy: of late, they're so sexy they've needed to acquire their own secret-service protection.

    "Keak da Sneak has one of the most recognizable voices in rap — or rather, he would if anyone stopped to recognize him. Since the early ’90s, Keak’s been grinding away in semi-obscurity, spinning dope yarns on his way to becoming a Bay Area legend. Problem is, he’s remained just that: a Bay Area legend. Now, with his single 'Hyphie' becoming 2005’s buzzword and surprise underground hit, he’s put the spotlight on the Cali rap scene just in time for his finest full-length in years .

    Out in the streets, they call it murder. In the confines of the TD Banknorth Garden, though, they just call it MONSTER JAM. With Hot 97's Hotlerween out of commission, this is now the lone rap/reggaeton/dancehall shindig, with a dozen stars flat killing it courtesy of JAM'N 94.5. Headliners Ludacris and Tony Yayo are returning from recent stints in Hollywood and prison, respectively.

    1. Moody Brit-poppish Bostonians the Bon Savants dressed all in black at their video shoot on Friday for "Why This Would Never Work Between Us."

You can download the song "WTWNWBU" from their Myspace page

    You knew it couldn't last -- having two hip-hop radio stations in Boston was just too good to be true. As of Thursday, WBOT Hot 97.7 switched formats, with the Globe reporting it's going with WILD-programmed smoov R&B during daylight hours, and only playing some of that nefarious rap music from 6-10 pm.

    We've been on the phone all morning trying to track down details, and the upshot is that it's pretty dire, but not quite as bleak as a total wipeout.

    Jason Martin from Bunny Brains

    Welcome to the show.

    What lives in the Hanna Barbera dumpster.

    See Bunny Brains piss the Somerville Theatre manager off...

    See a blurry Banhart take a seat on the floor.

    See DB be a hug machine.

    Now what?

    Cassette broke up. And Electrosocialist MicL PTVN says he's downsizing himself out of Lovewhip. Our guess: now he'll have more time to work on his bikes and Vanilla Ice remixes.

    1. Devendra Banhart "less than 2/3" sold tonight at Somerville Theatre (capacity: 800), despite two-week full-court media press. Trustafarian post-hippie hairy-fairy faux-folk is so over, duders. Oh, and the new Vashti Bunyan album sucks.

    2. SPOILER ALERT: MTV breaks down plot points on chapters 6-8 of R.
