It's just past 9 p.m. at the Largo nightclub in the Fairfax area, and the audience is enthralled by the local debut of Irish singer-songwriter Sinead Lohan. In "No Mermaid," the title track from her just-released Interscope album, Lohan's soft, almost whispered vocal captures nicely the self-affirmation of someone who races after her grandest dreams. "I am no mermaid," she sings, employing the familiar stereotype of the helpless female. "I am no fisherman's slave . . .

You'd expect a festival of modern American folk music to touch on issues of the day, and two songs performed at the Newport Folk Festival tour's Greek Theatre stop on Sunday commented on the current White House scandal. Just one thing: Both were written more than 40 years ago. Nanci Griffith tweaked a sing-along of the Weavers' anthem "If I Had a Hammer" to today's headlines by admonishing the crowd to "think about justice" while watching the video of President Clinton's grand jury testimony.

What better place for Lilith Fair to say goodbye to Southern California than the same Rose Bowl turf where the U.S. women's soccer team captured the nation's imagination just seven days earlier? None of the performers took off T-shirts at the end of the eight-hour affair Saturday, a la Brandi Chastain, but there was an overriding sense of celebration in the air.

Together, Britney Spears, Kid Rock, Christina Aguilera, 98 Degrees, Jennifer Lopez and Lou Bega have sold more than $205 million worth of albums. What a waste.
