    Girl in the spotlight - Lisa Loeb, figuring it out in public

    Imagine Rod Serling walking out of the soundstage and into the pool of light cast by a single spotlight. "Submitted for your approval," he says in that authoritative way that jogs our collective TV memories. "A portrait of a young woman who wants not...

    Roadshows

    Just like heaven The Cure has always been a band that was synonymous with the term "cult following." It didn't so much have fans as it had disciples: legions of pale-skinned, spidery-haired Robert Smith clones pretending that every day was Hallow...

    Deck the malls - This season's Christmas album offerings

    It's been looking a lot like Christmas here in the office since about July, when the first "seasonal" albums began arriving, presaging a time when the people of the world--or at least those who aren't Muslims, Jews, Jains, Bahais, animists, cargo cul...

    Interesting intersection - The many roads of Keli Vaughan

    There is restlessness about Keli Vaughan. It shows up in the way she uses her hands to accent her conversation, and it's scattered through her transcontinental history, which has seen her traveling to India, China, Europe, and Great Britain. There is...

    Rory in the sky - The long-coming canonization of an Irish hero

    "Are your Irish friends coming to dinner?" My mother, stuffing a turkey on a rain-drenched Thanksgiving day in 1976, was wondering if I was bringing Irish blues-rock guitar hero Rory Gallagher and his band home for our family's traditional evenin...

    Late in the evening - The legacy of Simon and Garfunkel still shines true

    Alas, poor Simon & Garfunkel. At a time in music when it was more important to be hip and cool than to necessarily be good (sound familiar, kids?), they were so collegiate, so pop, and never quite hip and cool. So why is it that their three-CD boxed ...

    Schleppin' out - Joe Jackson lugs the baggage of a onetime pop star into an ambitious middle age

    November spawned a Mozza - Morrissey proves that he still matters
