Could the critical rock 'n' roll question at concerts soon shift from "How ya doin' (insert city name here)?" to "Can you hear me now?" Don't laugh. In the ongoing search for ways to leave rock musicians and concert-going fans with happy memories instead of permanent hearing loss, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland last week held an experimental "quiet concert" with, of all acts, the Eagles of Death Metal, the side project of Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.

Opera was singing "Tequila" on Thursday night as the Alliance's Josh Richman, Shane Powers and Hartwell threw a swell party at the Hollywood nightclub for a new brew of Sauza. The Hornitos crowd included Ashlee Simpson, Jeremy Piven and Lamar Odom. . . . In more Alliance news, Saturdays at Teddy's at the Hotel Roosevelt seems to be pulsating with gusto. Mary-Kate Olsen, John Legend and Taryn Manning got an earful of DJ Samantha Ronson's freaky stylings. . . .

The big names sell tickets, but some of the finest moments of the Coachella Music and Arts festival can often be found elsewhere, surprising fans year after year on the smaller stages, scattered across the site's 78 grassy acres. On the weekend's opening lineup, those moments included stirring sets of varying styles by Cat Power, Damian Marley, My Morning Jacket and the Eagles of Death Metal.

"I wait for Christmas, I don't wait to rock!" Singer-guitarist Jesse Hughes of the Eagles of Death Metal stood anxiously offstage at the Avalon Hollywood on Monday, waiting for his band's grand entrance at this year's concert for the Shortlist Music Prize. Hughes was on a mission to rock.
"I'm at a point where I'm calling the shots. I do things only when I want to. . . . I've earned that much." Sound a little cocky? Maybe, but who can argue with blues man John Lee Hooker, who has left the kind of lasting impression that only a handful of others can lay claim to? The 80-year-old legend from Clarksdale, Miss., was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991, and he's won numerous industry awards, including two new Grammys for last year's "Don't Look Back" album.

Four artists whose work has stirred the controversy surrounding the National Endowment for the Arts are no strangers to San Diego audiences. Just last week, embattled NEA Chairman John E. Frohnmayer barred grants to the four, despite a recommendation for funding by an NEA panel. The rejection should come as a shock to those lucky enough to have seen John Fleck's comic performance as "The Granny" at the Old Globe Theatre in January.
