"I don't want a front-row seat--it might be too loud." One parent, waiting in line at Emerson Junior High School Auditorium recently, with toddlers in tow, had reservations concerning the trio about to perform. She needn't have worried. Here from Canada on a performance and workshop tour, Sharon, Lois and Bram have been entertaining young children for years. Their sound is warm and mellow, a mix of old nursery favorites, playground chants, lullabies and folk music from all over the world.

Few bands know how to be simultaneously funny and scary as well as Liars. The perennially expatriated trio (most recently from Berlin) has examined many styles, from the damned and danceable growl of Suicide to an archly dumb-as-a-post rock riffage to an ambient swoon worthy of their good friends in Radiohead. Fonda Theatre, 6126 Hollywood Blvd., L.A. 8 p.m. Fri. $20.50. goldenvoice.com.

A federal judge Thursday sentenced a Northern California man to nearly 20 years in prison for waging a failed eco-terrorism bombing campaign that targeted a dam and a plant genetics lab. Eric McDavid, 29, of Forest- hill, Calif., was convicted in March after his two co-conspirators pleaded guilty and assisted prosecutors in the case against him. U.S. Atty. McGregor Scott said McDavid's sentence should serve as "a cautionary tale" to other extremists. Prosecutors alleged that the trio hatched plans between June 2005 and January 2006 to construct homemade bombs to destroy Sacramento's Nimbus Dam and fish hatchery, electrical power facilities, cellular towers and a U.S. Forest Service science center.

Daniel Davies needs to drive. It's his preferred way back to Los Angeles after a tour leading the band Year Long Disaster, behind the wheel of his 1996 green van, sometimes driving alone, sometimes in silence, or cranking up the satellite radio for hours of music and basketball. He can get across the country in just three days, while the rest of his hard rock trio flies comfortably back home. "I get there faster than most," Davies, 29, says of his driving skills but admits, "We keep finding these tickets in the back of the van."

Billy Preston, a 6-foot-8 incoming freshman who played all summer with Santa Ana Mater Dei, has enrolled at St. John Bosco, according to OCVarsity.com. He'd join senior Daniel Hamilton and junior Tyler Dorsey to give the Braves an imposing trio. West Hills Chaminade has also added several transfers, so the battle continues to strengthen teams as school begins. Eric.email@example.com
