Indie-pop practitioners are more concerned with crafting music they enjoy than something guaranteed to sell. This has led to an abundance of overly precious and obscure work, but seasoned acts John Vanderslice and the Wrens proved quirkily engaging in their separate Knitting Factory sets Wednesday. Drawing a large crowd despite heavy rain, Vanderslice and his band offered almost an hour's worth of off-kilter tunes with a persistent, morbid charm.

His past might be cured A quarter of a century after he cofounded the Cure -- and some 15 years since his messy departure from the band -- Lol Tolhurst is back. His trio, Levinhurst, performs Friday at the Echo supporting its debut album, "Perfect Life." The record features the airy vocals of his wife, Cindy Levinson, over electronic loops that are at times reminiscent of his old band's work circa 1983.

A San Diego police officer who was fired for alleged sexual child abuse, but was never charged or prosecuted, is asking the city's Civil Service Commission to overturn his firing. John R. Alger, who was on the force five years, was dismissed in February after a relative of two preschool girls notified authorities that the children allegedly had been sexually molested by the officer.

Two San Diego police officers who lost their jobs, one for alleged sexual misconduct, the other for falsely reporting his involvement in an off-duty shooting, have lost their appeals to be reinstated. In a report released Friday, the city Civil Service Commission ruled that the conduct of Officer Charles R. Demers was "offensive," "deplorable and seriously jeopardized the reputation and public trust of the entire" Police Department.

He sat in traffic for about half an hour outside Anaheim Stadium, waited in line for a half-hour to buy his ticket, endured another half-hour wait to buy a hot dog, and when he needed to dab some mustard off his lip, the napkin holder was empty. "I've been coming here forever and this is the worst I've ever seen it," said Don Clavesilla, a 31-year-old Newport Beach resident, of the service on his way into Tuesday's game between the California Angels and Milwaukee Brewers.

"All things come round to him who will but wait," poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow told us. Or so many of us believe as we delay booking vacations, hoping to snag a last-minute opportunity. Customers who used to arrange leisure trips two or three months before departing now book about a month ahead, says Steve Loucks, spokesman for Carlson Wagonlit Travel, a Minneapolis-based network of more than 1,000 travel agency offices. Their plea, he says: "Help me. Get me a deal."
