MUSIC The young electronica producer Skrillex is as divisive as they get, with fans flinging themselves at the feet of his skittish, bass-heavy tracks, while detractors deem him "bro-step" and mock his sideswept goth haircut. But over a rash of purposefully smallish club shows in L.A. he'll underline the one thing everyone can agree on — he is really, really popular and entirely embodies this moment in dance music. Hollywood Palladium, 6215 Sunset Blvd., L.A. 9 p.m. Sat. $53.50.

This post has been corrected. Please see note at bottom for details. Rank amateurs and charlatans. That's how 99% of today's pop and R&B musicians come off compared to the masterful- on-multiple-fronts performance Prince and his New Power Generation band delivered Saturday during his surprise show at the Hollywood Palladium. Although fans who scrambled to get tickets (at $100 a pop) for the show announced over Twitter and Facebook late Saturday afternoon had to wait 2½ hours past the announced start time of 8 p.m. for the Purple One's arrival, as soon as he and NPG exploded into “Big City,” any grousing fell by the wayside.

Hollywood Palladium, 6215 Sunset Blvd., L.A. 1:30 p.m. Sun. $50. http://www.livenation.com.

The other night I drove over to Christmas Tree Lane in Altadena. The night was clear. The stars vied with the glowing lights on the trees, and lost. This is how it works. You turn off all but your parking lights and coast slowly downhill, then drive back up again. (Repeat as needed.) As the lights drift overhead on the branches of the giant deodars, it feels like you're floating through Christmas. Feeling a little frazzled with your 21st-century holiday season, with its online shopping and virtual friendships?

For airplane-phobic drummer Travis Barker, the gig required a quick trip across town in a pimped-out low rider. Singer-bassist Mark Hoppus flew 5,400 miles from London. And with sky's-the-limit rock-star gusto, guitarist-vocalist Tom DeLonge bypassed traffic on the 405 and helicoptered in from San Diego. With the sun high in the autumn sky, SoCal's Blink-182 arrived at the Hollywood Palladium to find a punk-rock centipede, a line of heavily tattooed, extravagantly pierced and Mohawk-sporting fans waiting for the sold-out show.

One of the great musical bummers of our time has been the wholesale narrowing of the phrase "dance music. " In modern-day parlance, it's come to signify mostly the thump-based electronic beats created on computer and delivered by DJs in sweaty EDM clubs.  But on Halloween night in Hollywood while zombies, sexy nurses, skateboarding skeletons, Waldos, Mario Bros., little lambs and murder victims wandered Sunset Boulevard, a masked rock band called...

In case you've been lost at sea and starved of Instagram, Twitter and potable drinking water for the last six months, the Arcade Fire have a new album out Tuesday called "Reflektor. " A few years in the making and mostly produced by the band with James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem, DFA) and longtime collaborator Markus Dravs, the album is the first from the Grammy Award-winning, Montreal-based band since it snagged the album of the year award for its 2010 record, “The Suburbs.” Recently Arcade Fire has been popping up in various cities - and "Saturday Night Live" and "The Colbert Report" - to market its release, and as part of the rollout the band had announced a Tuesday, Oct. 29, L.A. gig at an undisclosed location in conjunction with the MTV Iggy and Intel "The Music Experiment 2.0. " That undisclosed location, Pop & Hiss has learned, will be outside of Capitol Records building in Hollywood.  No tickets are for sale to the show.

All four performances are timed to honor the 10thanniversary of Blink-182's untitled 2003 album (known by fans as “ Blink-182 ”) - an “experimental” CD greeted by fans, critics and band members alike as its best work, Blink's answer to “Pet Sounds” or “Sgt.
