With the slogan "It's not what you'd expect," the Orange County Performing Arts Center's new Off Center indie-rock series kicked off Thursday with performances by Sweden's Peter, Bjorn and John and L.A.'s Sea Wolf. The series is meant to add a hipper element to the center's usual classical, jazz and cabaret fare. That is, to attract younger audiences, the kind that whistle along to the most ubiquitous foot-tapper of 2007, PB&J's appropriately titled "Young Folks."

Imagine Dragons, the Flaming Lips, Cold War Kids and Colbie Caillat are among eight acts confirmed to play a new-generation Human Rights Concert benefiting Amnesty International on Feb. 5 at the Barclays Center in New York. Lauryn Hill, Tegan and Sara, the Fray and Cake are also confirmed to be on the Bringing Human Rights Home concert, which is being organized to raise awareness of human rights for young musicians and fans. Tickets go on sale Saturday through Ticketmaster. Amnesty International's concerts of the 1980s and 1990s were a key component of the era's pop music with a social conscience, and drew attention around the world with performances by U2, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, the Police, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Lou Reed, Tracy Chapman, Youssou N'Dour and many others.

As a jet-setting DJ, club promoter, fashionista and poster boy for the indie dance scene, Steve Aoki has enjoyed a meteoric rise in profile over the last few years. But his original love, Dim Mak, the independent record label he founded almost a decade ago, has treaded water, lacking the clout to promote the acts Aoki unearthed.

The quintet's return to base follows a dazzling two-year rise, not far removed from its days as an unknown act on the local club scene. This wasn't just another gig to singer-guitarist Mikel Jollett, who aimed to fill "this really big room" with a performance of genuine warmth and ambition.

Talk about a peculiar way of celebrating a worldwide smash hit. In 2006, Downtown Records was just a scrappy indie start-up label with a skeletal staff of four working out of the chief executive's downtown Manhattan apartment. Enter hip-hop-rock-soul duo Gnarls Barkley, whose work was Downtown's first release. Inside of a few months, the group's infectious single "Crazy" had become the feel-good hit of summer, hitting No. 1 in the U.K.
