The shabby little black box East Theatre in Hollywood may look like an unlikely place to take young children for an hour's entertainment, but appearances can be deceiving. The Red Herring Puppets' opening matinee there on Sunday suffered a few mishaps--the tops of the puppeteers heads made a few inadvertent appearances, a smoke effect was a scene too early, the opening act was briefly in the dark thanks to tardy spotlights and a few unintentional thuds sounded behind the curtain.

When was the last time you saw high school and college kids outside a rock club begging for tickets ... to a solo harp concert? That was the scene Thursday at the Troubadour for the sold-out appearance of Joanna Newsom. If that image leaves you scratching your head, the situation inside wouldn't have helped much, as Newsom looked as if she'd just hitchhiked in from the Elfin lands. And then there was her singing, with the voice of a pixie. Or a cat. Or a pixie cat.

If Robin Williamson dropped the last two letters from his surname and stuck the remainder on a marquee, it would be mischievous and wrong, but it wouldn't be totally fraudulent. The swarms of "Mrs. Doubtfire" fans who turned out to see a wonderful comedic talent would get exactly what they paid for, and more.

In the early '70s, Village Voice critic Robert Christgau, writing about the quintessential hippie folk group the Incredible String Band, said he couldn't decide whether "these acoustic Scots were magic or (bull) and concluded that they were both." Hearing that comment for the first time recently, Robin Williamson, a founding member of the now disbanded group, laughed heartily. "So many of these things are in the eye of the beholder," Williamson said in a delicate brogue.
