Chris Brown comeback continues; I.M.P. sues Montgomery County; Radiohead approves of fan-made live DVD

By David Malitz

- The legal wrangling over the the new Silver Spring music hall continues. I.M.P. - the local concert promotion company that owns the 9:30 Club - is suing Montgomery County, Maryland over illegal funding of the new concert hall.

- The Chris Brown comeback continues. A year and a half after his arrest on domestic violence charges, the 21-year-old R&B star is in the country's No. 1 movie, "Takers," and also has the No. 1 song on this week's R&B/Hip-Hop Billboard charts.

- Things are much worse for Brown's "Takers" co-star, T.I. Yesterday he was arrested on suspicion of possessing methamphetamines. Should we have seen it coming? Our Chris Richards interviewed the rapper last month and said he gave sullen, one-word answers -- and actually seemed on the verge of falling asleep.

- Radiohead, always thinking one step ahead of everyone else. The band gave their blessing - and soundboard recordings - to a fan-made live DVD of an August 2009 Prague concert that was filmed by fans on 50 different handheld Flip camera. What a novel idea! What? The Beastie Boys did the same thing four years ago? Eh, still pretty cool.

- The best song of the '90s, according to indie tastemakers Pitchfork? "Gold Soundz" by Pavement.

- Elsewhere in today's Post, a story on former Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham, who is still managing rock bands, just now in South America.
