  • *Bob Ham stalked Stereolab at the Wonder
    Ballroom in Portland
    last month (Oct. 18), saying of the space age bachelor padders, “[The] songs
    reflected back to this American audience the many errors of our ways. Even if
    Laetitia Sadier didn’t take the time out to dedicate their glossy ode to
    movements in global finance “Ping Pong” to “our current credit
    crunch,” the message was loud and clear: the times they are-a changin’ once
    more.”
  • *A couple of weeks later in nearby Seattle, Gillian G. Gaar
    braved the groovy ghoulies of Halloween and the Paramount Theatre to catch the
    legendary Sonics
    . “They performed their first Northwest show in 35 years,”
    notes Gaar, “bringing down the house with the kind of shrieks and wails that
    have thrilled discerning listeners from the Beatles to the Cramps to Nirvana.”
  • *And a week later in San Francisco, Jud Cost was utterly smitten
    by M. Ward and Zoey Deschanel, aka She & Him, commenting, simply, and with
    no trace of irony, “This could be Sonny & Cher for a new generation!”
