    Free Music Friday! A power-pop jolt from reunited North Carolina band The dB's
    The dB's -- one of the greatest, most-overlooked rock bands of the 1980s -- is back together with its original lineup and a new album of fresh material. For me, this is more exciting than the Beach Boys mending fences with Brian Wilson. The new dB's...

    Modern musical theater tends to be showy--think "Fela," "Billy Elliot," "Wicked"--if not sometimes a little bit over the top. But for every proposed budget-busting "Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark," there can be a new, intimate, even personal musical. And...
