- D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray is declaring May 5 to be Raheem DeVaughn Day in the District. This Thursday the local R&B star will receive a key to the city and be honored for community efforts including preserving the arts and fighting HIV/AIDS. DeVaughn tackled many political and social issues on his Grammy-nominated album “The Love & War Masterpeace.”

- Jenny Conlee, keyboardist for indie-folk band the Decemberists, announced that she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She and Decemberists leader Colin Meloy penned a note on the band’s Web site saying the prognosis is positive, although she will be forced to miss the band’s upcoming concerts, including a June 13 show at Merriweather Post Pavilion.
