Here's a round-up of our week at Midnight Sun:
•••• Canadian country star Terri Clark performs Saturday and Sunday at Rams Head on Stage. She and I talked about losing her mother to cancer, leaving her major label and more, which you can read here. If you don't make it to Clark's shows, I recommend the Lemonheads show at the Ottobar, where you can hear Evan Dando and Co. perform "It's a Shame About Ray" in its entirety.
•••• "For Upper Fells, it's an above-average neighborhood bar," Erik wrote in his review of Salt. Read his full-take here.
•••• It was a week for local festival line-up announcements. Sweetlife Festival will feature Kid Cudi and Avicii (full line-up here); Starscape has Ghostland Observatory and Flux Pavilion (full line-up here).
•••• In other concert news, Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks are teaming up again for a sequel to last year's "Heart & Soul" tour. Ticket info and more here. If you're missing the Black Keys this weekend, no worries — they're coming to Merriweather Post Pavilion soon enough. Read the other concert announcements here.
•••• The National Premium comeback continued, with owner Tim Miller saying bars and liquor stores should have the Boh-alternative next month.
•••• The old Natty Boh Lounge at Canton Station will soon be Of Love & Regret, a collaboration between Stillwater founder Brian Strumke and Ted Stelzenmuller, chef and co-owner of Jack's Bistro. Read the report here.
•••• The Tiki Barge expansion was denied at Thursday's Liquor Board meeting.
•••• Charlves Village Pub fans can rejoice — the Towson bar will rises from the ashes by month's end. More details here.
•••• Finally, the Frisco Tap House in Columbia will open a seven-barrel microbrewery under the name Push Craft Brewing this spring.
