It's physically impossible to blow the doors off the Susquehanna Bank Center, Camden's giant open-air shed. But the teenage girls at One Direction's Memorial Day concert gave it their all. The focus of their frenzy: Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, and Louis Tomlinson — five flavors of creamy cuteness. Together, this Anglo-Irish quintet make up one of the most enjoyable and charming boy bands of the modern era. The biggest reactions on this muggy Monday were sparked by love notes like "Gotta Be You" and "Everything About You. " But all night long, the crowd was working a great deal harder than the performers were.

YOU CAN ALMOST feel it – the sun beating down onto your summer hat, the fluorescent band strapped across your wrist, perhaps even the grass beneath your feet as you wait to start grooving to your favorite tunes. Philadelphia's peak music season has arrived. Every month this summer brings an opportunity to catch an outdoor festival, and there are plenty of solid indoor options, too. Some highlights: Fall Out Boy and Wiz Khalifa, June 10 . While blatantly different in terms of their musical styles, these two do share the experience of having produced multiplatinum albums.

Festivals, concerts, movie screenings and more will be plentiful and better coordinated on both sides of the Delaware River this summer, officials said yesterday. One sign of cooperation: Camden's Adventure Aquarium is springing for the America's Birthday weekend fireworks that go along with the Wawa Taste of Philadelphia Concert (July 6). And no Philly complaints that Cirque du Soleil will set up its tents on the Jersey side (adjacent to the Susquehanna Bank Center) for the first time, for the premiere run of "Totem" May 30-June 23. The Great Plaza at Penn's Landing is mostly about freebie fun this year - including this weekend's Art Star Craft Bazaar, the 10-event strong Peco Multicultural Series on Saturdays and Sundays through August, and "Screenings Under the Stars" series of recent hit flicks on Thursdays in July and August (including "The Hunger Games" and "Silver Linings Playbook")

A Camden police officer was in critical but stable condition at Cooper University Hospital Sunday after being stabbed in the chest while trying to break up a fight Saturday night. Officer Richard Harris' wounds were so serious that fellow officers didn't wait for an ambulance; they rushed him to the hospital in a traffic-cone truck. The 14-year veteran was working a traffic post at Broadway and Mickle Boulevard about 10:15 p.m., as concertgoers were leaving the Susquehanna Bank Center.

"I'm from a map dot," Tim McGraw sang shortly after taking the stage  at the Susquehanna Bank Center on Friday night, "a stop sign on a blacktop. " But McGraw, who took the stage to the decidedly un-countryish sounds of Imagine Dragons' "Radioactive," is defined as much by big-tent showmanship as small-town sentiment, sometimes to the latter's detriment. Two Lanes of Freedom, McGraw's 12th studio album, is his first since extricating himself from a contract with Nashville's Curb Records, his home for the previous two decades.

Girl power reigned at the third annual Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival Sunday at Susquehanna Bank Center. It's a tradition. Sarah Silverman and Whitney Cummings stole last year's show. Bridget Everett and Amy Schumer, who are, not surprisingly, close pals, stole it on Sunday. Opener Nikki Glaser had her moments, particularly when talking about her sex life. MC Big Jay Oakerson, born and raised in Philadelphia, talked sex, sex, and more sex, nothing new, but Oakerson was charismatic and a natural host.

READY FOR some musical "Hot Fun in the Summertime"? How much can you take? Afford? Festival-mania heats up, fowl-weather-phobic acts come out of hibernation and large-capacity, lawn-enhanced "sheds" like the Mann (now solidly booked with good acts) and the Susquehanna Bank Center reopen for the season. Hardly a day or night will go by this summer without several interesting options. These 14 have larger-than-life (you'll be talking about this for weeks) potential: 7th Annual Roots Picnic, May 31. Will the Roots shizzle with Snoop Dogg?

North Carolina bank BB&T Corp. has agreed to pay $2.5 billion for Lancaster County's Susquehanna Bancshares , which has 245 branches in southern Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia area, and nearby states. BB&T (it stands for Branch Banking & Trust) plans to cut $160 million from Susquehanna's $500 million in yearly expenses, including staff at Susquehanna headquarters and back offices in Lititz. BB&T currently employs around 3,000. BB&T also plans to rename the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden and call it the BB&T Center, BB&T president Ricky K. Brown told me. BB&T is buying its way north in search of diversification, Brown said.

Master and student. Mentor and pupil. Young Money founder and MC Lil Wayne, 31, and Canadian actor/singer/rapper Drake, 27, have long had such a relationship. But Drake has had a hot time on the charts since 2010, so he's certainly caught up, maybe even surpassed Weezy. That's the set-up, anyway. And, to play along, their Street Fighter video-game-themed Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour, which sold out Camden's Susquehanna Bank Center on Thursday, was meant to settle the score for world supremacy - at least for that night.

When Robin Thicke hit the summer of 2013 with his sexy smash "Blurred Lines," the world turned on to the blue-eyed-soul-boy shtick he'd been working since the early 2000s. As songwriter for R&B queens (Mya, Brandy) and as a burgeoning solo artist, Alan Thicke's kid has proved he has the goods. His songs have an aching sensuality, and his voice is commanding yet subtle, topped with a creamy falsetto. The buying public just needed to catch up. Which brings us to "Blurred," his lover-man persona (which evidently hasn't pleased his wife, Paula Patton, lately)
