Here is a nice article from yesterday's Baltimore Sun profiling local hard-rock kids band The Hilltop Hightops, an ostensibly "clean" version of the band's alter-egos, The Dirty Marmaduke Flute Squad. Both bands' lead guitarist, Ryan Graham, contributed a very funny piece on "selling out" to the most recent edition of Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore!, and both bands turned in excellent performances at the Smile, Hon No. 11 release party last month.
Visit the Hightops online, and while you're at it, check out their debut album, Super Galactic Space Banana:
