When is a $20 ticket not a $20 ticket? When you buy it online. That convenience of clicking costs you some serious cash. The easy solution? Buy at the box office. No matter the venue, there are serious savings to be had. And that's even if you factor in a few bucks for gas or Metro costs to get you there. -- David Malitz

Gilbert Newman Perkins, known also as Sage Salvo, founded Words Liive , a company that augments English language arts. He is on Twitter: @sagesalvo . If I were a betting man, I'd wager that neither Bill O'Reilly nor Don Lemon is a good dancer. Like many who go to soulful music concerts and experience the rhythms yet are unable to move to the beat, O'Reilly and Lemon have heard hip-hop (allegedly) and completely missed the literary prowess of the music. Not long ago, pundits O'Reilly of Fox News and Lemon of CNN...

Why would an Atlanta singer with a Southern accent and a bluegrass-music-loving dad end up in Washington, D.C.? To get a master's degree in physiology and biophysics from Georgetown, of course. Lissy Rosemont, 27, frontwoman of Junior League Band, which plays Saturday at the Black Cat, received her master's in 2005. Her life has been shaped, it seems, by contrasting worlds: a broke, sexist, bipolar father (think Walter in "The Big Lebowksi," only mix in the South and some bluegrass, Rosemont says)
