Girls Last time, when the San Francisco duo of Christopher Owens and Chet "J.R. " White known as Girls released their debut album, Album , in 2009, they had plenty of backstory to introduce them. Owens spent his youth traveling the world in the Children of God cult, forbidden to listen to music made by outsiders. Yet he somehow emerged a startlingly sensitive songwriter whose music internalized the influences of the Beach Boys, Elvis Costello, and the Everly Brothers. Not that his story's old hat, but we move on to Father, Son, Holy Ghost, the second fuller and thickly produced Girls' album, which must get by on the merits of its music alone.

The lineup for the fourth annual Budweiser Made in America festival has been announced, and the big star headliners are pop queen Beyoncé, who also headlined in 2013 (and who is married to festival curator Jay Z), and Canadian crooner the Weeknd (a.k.a. Abel Tesfaye) who was also recently featured at the Roots Picnic. Those two acts will top the bill on the Labor Day weekend fest on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway Sept. 5 and 6. This year, it's more of a hip-hop and R&B festival that includes other genres but does not emphasize them equally.

Ramadan Bayyan is a good defender. He's a good midfielder. He's a good striker, too. The Cherry Hill West senior can play anywhere on the soccer field. His versatility is a big reason the Lions are a serious contender for the Olympic Patriot title as well as the South Jersey Group 4 crown. Question: Do you take pride in your ability to play different positions? Answer: I do. That's the thing that I'm probably best known for. I like the challenge of playing different positions.

The 31st edition of Power 99-FM's Powerhouse 2013 Friday at the Wells Fargo Center was, as usual, an all-night affair (1 a.m.-ish) dedicated to the current state of radiocentric hip-hop and packed to the rafters. That's standard for Powerhouse, plus its long lineup, which this time found notorious lectro-crooner Chris Brown, rap's artiste du jour Kendrick Lamar, and Philly's Meek Mill atop its bill. With those top-tier singer/MCs as headliners, strong support was necessary. Powerhouse 2013 featured openers that packed a punch, no doubt.
