The noise-pop mad-scientist Dan Deacon earned a reputation for chaotic, neon-splattered party punk by playing on the floor and blurring lines between artist and audience.

Pop & Jazz Previews by August Brown The Happy Hollows The perennially tipped-for-success Silver Lake trio just released its best work yet, the twisty and frantic yet perpetually melodic album "Spells." Live, they're usually never less than incendiary. The Mint, 6010 Pico Blvd., L.A. Thu., 8 p.m. $10. Atlas Sound Bradford Cox's more intimate and homemade solo project nonetheless captures many of his best traits as a songwriter and arranger -- the wispy guitars, gallons of reverb and his equally doomed and lovestruck lyrics are showcased in sharp focus.

March 30, 2012 | By Christopher Reynolds, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
First published on Jan. 30, 2011. Revised and expanded in early 2012. The tourists think big. Arriving in Southern California, they expect to conquer Disneyland and Hollywood, perhaps on the same day, in between the surfing and snowboarding. Then they get stuck in traffic. Then come the recriminations, the tears, the vows to visit an island next time. The locals think small. Tracing tight little loops between home and work, they dodge freeways and alien neighborhoods. There are Los Feliz people who haven't set foot in Venice since the latter Bush administration (until this project, I was one)

Pop & Jazz Previews by August Brown Stand With Haiti Benefit The cheeky pomp-rockers Tenacious D might be unlikely headliners of any show benefitting more than their chick-pulling ambitions, but they get top billing at this Haiti benefit with The Shins' James Mercer, Frank Black and comedian Patton Oswalt. The Wiltern, 3790 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. Tue., 7 p.m. $39.50-$74.50. (213) 380-5005. Laura Marling The young Marling has such startlingly articulate insights into love and loss that one pities the scads of loutish teenage boys back in her native Eversley who surely tried and failed to stir her heart.
