Arrests in Baltimore for illegal guns often lead to dropped charges or little jail time

Meet the Band: Yukon

Hometown // Baltimore

Current members // Denny Bowen, guitar; Nick Podgurski, drummer; Brad Smith, bass; Sam Garrett, guitar

Founded in // 2004

Style // progressive rock

Influenced by // ZS, Sleeping People, Genesis, Captain Beefheart

Notable // Since the band's songwriting process is collaborative, writing new music tends to take awhile, Podgurski said. The tracks on the full-length album Mortar focus more on the instruments than the vocals.

Quotable // "We wrote three songs in a month once, and that was unheard of," Podgurski said. "Normally, we'll spend a couple practices just getting one part of a song."

Hear Yukon tomorrow at The Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St. Jason Dove and the Magic Whip and Monarch will also perform. The music starts at 9 p.m. $8. Go to The band:[SAM SESSA
