Keith Sylvester's got the round sunglasses, the dark shoulder-length hair, the soul patch, the bass guitar and most importantly a sound similar to Rush bassist Geddy Lee. Andrew Baker, 14, of Hedgesville, W.Va., knows Sylvester is not Lee. He saw the rock band Rush in concert at Nissan Pavilion in June. Still, "It'd be harder to find a closer match," Andrew said of Sylvester's Rush tribute band, Absalom, which debuted at Hempen Hill BBQ Bar & Grill north of Hagerstown on Friday, Aug. 3. Sylvester, 36, of Falling Waters, W.Va.

On the street, in front of the bluesy rock band, a young, barefoot hippie danced a rhythmic flail beside a middle-aged guy with a Washington Redskins jersey and a decidedly more sedated groove. Both were, by all appearances, lost in the music and vibe of Shepherdstown Street Fest. Herb peddlers, potters, jewelry designers, environmental groups and more lined two blocks of German Street, embodying the college town's bookish bohemian feel. Jason Smith, 37, of Martinsburg, W.Va., stood watching a musical performance by Moondog Medicine Show with his friend, Shannon Smiles, 31, also of Martinsburg.

It was more than 20 years ago, that five chums decided to form a wind quintet, thinking they'd do a show here and there. But that didn't happen. The Appalachian Wind Quintet has been going strong ever since, doing more and more shows, said Barbara Spicher, the quintet's flutist. In keeping with tradition, the Appalachian Wind Quintet will perform at the Festival of Lights Saturday at Rest Haven Funeral Chapel & Cemetery in Hagerstown. "The Appalachian Wind Quintet has been coming here for years," Brown said.

Square dancing to Lady Gaga? Maroon 5? “Come Sail Away” by the rock band Styx? People who have not been to a square dance in the last 15 years might have thought they were in some strange musical dream when they went to the 55th anniversary celebration dance for the Gad-Abouts Square Dance Club Sunday at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center. Hunter Keller, who was the caller for Sunday afternoon's dance, said there has been a trend over about the last 12 years of adding modern tunes to square dancing.

With an album already on wax, rock band Teach is ready to make its part-time cover band status a thing of the past. "The stuff that we're doing now is an evolution," said bassist Rob Adair. Teach, a four-man rock band from Hagerstown named for its frontman, Jason Teach, put the finishing touches on its first album, "Wake Up," nearly a year ago and has enough new stuff to make two new albums, Adair said. With the first record out of the way, the band has found its identity and hopes to be at a point where it can stop tossing in the obligatory cover song at local gigs and just play its own stuff.

What is the difference between a Christian youth rally and any other rally? A Christian youth rally has bands that are all Christian and almost everyone who goes are Christians, and kids who go and who aren't Christian become Christian at the rally. I went to one of these rallies from Tuesday, June 24, through Sunday, June 29, called Creation Festival. I went with the youth group of New Life Christian Ministries in Clear Spring. Creation is the biggest Christian youth rally in the Northeast.

I'm starting to have new respect for the chick whose name we'll never remember and whose antics we'll never forget. When she and her husband crashed the White House state supper in 2009 and tried to use it as a jump-off point for a reality television show, I assumed the girl couldn't help it, and that she was just some pathetic, lonely and insecure celeb sniffer. But now that she's on this runaway bride kick (or more like a runaway middle-aged housewife kick), I think maybe she's just going around and enjoying life - and there's nothing wrong with that.
