The enigmatic pop star wouldn't be able to go through with the interview the following day in Dublin as planned, the message read.

Maybe they'll call it the Weezer Roast? Or just a Rancid Picnic? Weezer, Kings of Leon, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Jimmy Eat World, Rancid and Silversun Pickups are among the headliners for the KROQ-FM (106.7) Weenie Roast Y Fiesta at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on May 16.

Pop observers here are having trouble deciding whether singer-songwriter Gail Ann Dorsey is the new Tracy Chapman or the new Terence Trent D'Arby. Like Chapman, the female pop sensation of 1988, Dorsey is a soft-spoken woman who sings about politics and romance with a thoughtful, embracing edge. But like D'Arby, perhaps last year's flashiest pop arrival, Dorsey is an American expatriate who mixes rock and soul influences in her music.
