This year's Big Music Issue is BIGGER than ever, with an online playlist of over 100 unreleased songs by Baltimore artists, plus a features on J. Roddy Walston and the Business, A$AP Ant, Raindeer, and the man responsible for all those Smiths' songs you keep hearing at Camden Yards. In the Music section, we have another story on Matic808, who remixed the entirety of Kanye's Yeezus album. Rap Sheet gives us the dope on Height with Friends' new release.

City Folk looks at a former rocker who is now an Orthodox Jew with an obsession for physical fitness. In Mobtown Beat, Edward Ericson Jr. continues his reporting on the intricacies--and possible injustices--of the bailbond system, while Van Smith reports on the troubling case of a blogger attempting to show sexual abuse at Michael Phelps' swim club.

In the arts, Rafael Alvarez details the impact an artist father had on his filmmaker son, while Michael Farley reviews two shows at School 33 and the D Center. In Stage, John Barry talks with Single Carrot Theatre and their Bulgarian collaborators 36 Monkeys about their new play based on the Unabomber, and Tory Haltermann pans Fiddler on the Roof, while, in film, Bret McCabe enthuses over Jazz.

In Eats and Drinks, John Houser reviews Fork & Wrench in the wake of a new chef, Clinton MacSherry asks you to help name a herb-y cocktail, and Jenn Ladd gets lost in Columbia before finding a good sandwich.

In the columns, Mr. Wrong waits, and waits, and waits on the 27 bus, Spitballin' plays D&D and wonders what a vagina looks like, and Charm City Porn Star classifies female porn stars.

As always, use Baltimore Weekly to plan your week.
