CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Even with a record deal and some national exposure, The Shackeltons are still Chambersburg's homeboys. The Shackeltons, a five-man rock band from the 'Burg, will perform at The Capitol Theatre on Friday. They'll be joined by Skeletonbreath, a Brooklyn trio of drums, guitar and violin. The last time The Herald-Mail and The Shackeltons spoke, back in January, the band was geeked about write ups from Rolling Stone and Spin.com praising the band's self-titled album, released Jan. 29. Since then, it's been a flurry of cross-country tour dates and gigs at music festivals -- including South by Southwest in March.

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.

Hagerstown rock band The Trip is ready to roll out on a regional tour, with scheduled stops in Baltimore and New York. The band hopes these shows will prep them for higher-profile shows like the Western Maryland Blues Fest, said Steve Goodwin, the band's 27-year-old lead singer. The Trip is an old band with a new name. The band used to be called Revelation, which performed at a Maryland Theatre fundraiser last year. The Trip will perform at Divi's Nightclub in Hagerstown on Saturday and will be at Oasis Hookah Lounge and Cafe on June 27. The Trip is headed to Baltimore for a July 19 gig at The Brass Monkey Saloon in Fells Point, where they'll join Charm City rockers Liquid Lucky and the Allen Snyder Band, an acoustic rock band from Hagerstown.

FREDERICK, Md. - Rock band Brian Severn and Those Victorious is doing all it can to attain pop-star status. "A lot of bands are afraid to say they're rock-pop because (people) think of horrible things like the Backstreet Boys," frontman Brian Severn says. So call them pop. There's no fear of categorization here. Brian Severn and Those Victorious is a four-man rock band from Frederick. The members have been touring and writing new material for a full-length album and are signed to Severn's record label, BDS Music in Frederick.

Still hot off the success of their 2006 album, "Comatose," members of Christian rock band Skillet are showing no signs of cooling off. But they are a band at a crossroads. "There's a lot of pressure to keep it up," said frontman John Cooper days before the band's Sunday night gig at North Hagerstown High School. The North High show is part of Skillet's spring "Comatose" tour, the band's largest headline tour since it debuted in 1996, Cooper said. The tour comes after a long jaunt with Fly Leaf, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace and Mercy Me. After two albumless years and spending much time on the road, Skillet will be making its way back to the studio in September to start a new album.

You're the catch to my perfect scheme, the rock to my window at night and the weight to my hot air balloon. The stoke for my fire. You're the fork in my path, the Robert to my Frost, the Thoreau to my Walden. You're the cherry on the cigarette I don't smoke, the milk in my cereal, the sugar in my coffee, and the balance in my breakfast. You're the roadie to my rock band. You're the pen to my paper. What was Margaret Dumont to the Marx Brothers? Laurel to Hardy?

Sean Kipe, 26, used to be a long-haired kid with a guitar, watching his favorite bands on MTV. He saw his favorite rock stars playing in front of thousands of people and knew he wanted to be a musician, he said. Kipe's only formal music training was playing the trumpet in elementary school.
