Neil Young, The Decemberists, James Blake announce local shows; Prodigy released from prison; Kanye lawsuits dismissed

By David Malitz

- A handful of interesting local concert announcements. Neil Young brings his "Le Noise" tour to Baltimore's Hippodrome for a pair of shows on April 27 and 28. (He previewed many of those songs at Constitution Hall last May.) The Decemberists visit Merriweather Post Pavilion on June 13, with somewhat unlikely support from Best Coast. And breakout blog star James Blake makes his D.C. debut at Rock & Roll Hotel on May 8.

- Rapper Prodigy of Mobb Deep was released from a New York prison yesterday after serving nearly three and a half years on a gun charge. The Village Voice collects some the top rants he penned while incarcerated.

- Two separate lawsuits against Kanye West have been dismissed -- one from a Virginia rapper who claimed Kanye stole ideas for his 2007 hit "Stronger" and another by rap mogul Suge Knight, who was shot in the leg at a 2005 party hosted by West.
