A Star by Any Other Name

You might recognize Mos Def from his hit albums Black Star, Black on Both Sides and The New Danger. You might even recognize him from his starring role in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. But with acting being Def's first love (he moved to rap for the money), you could be forgiven for not recognizing him in 22 other film and TV appearances—mostly because he was often under different names. For those at home keeping a running tally, here's the list:

Mos Def


Black Star

Dante Smith

Dante Terrell Smith

Smith Dante

Bizet Dante

Dante Bezé

Flaco Bey

Martin Stein

The Silence in Black and White (3.5 stars)

Concealed somewhere behind Hawthorne Heights' raucous vocals and triple-shot guitar attack is an intense lyrically driven vulnerability and sophisticated grouping of rock, metal and emo genres. The Silence of Black and White Deluxe Edition offers the 12 tracks originally released on the CD of the same name, along with seven bonus tracks and a DVD of live performances, music videos and more.

Bring It On! (3 stars)

w/The Disasters, Left Alone

Where: Jillian's

When: November 3, 7 p.m.

Price: $10-$12

Info: 759-0450

The second album from this psychobilly quartet is anchored by singer and stand-up bassist Patricia Day, who snarls and swaggers her way through the band's tongue-in-cheek, punkers-meet-greasers tunes. The music is a bit homogenous but has a nice playful sense and a thick punk rock sound courtesy of producer Brett Gurewitz (of Bad Religion). It's fun and slightly dangerous, which is always a good combination.

Brides of Destruction

Runaway Brides (2 stars)

w/Hard 8, Broken End, Cynical View

Where: Cheyenne Saloon

When: November 4, 10 p.m.

Price: $15

Info: 645-4139

The second album from hair metal supergroup Brides of Destruction loses its "super" designation with the departure of Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx, leaving L.A. Guns guitarist Tracii Guns as the only "star" in the band. Even with Sixx cowriting a few tunes, the album is a serious dip in quality from the band's lively debut. Their old-school, hard-rock aesthetic was never original, but this time around the songs are muddy and indistinct, and singer London LeGrand sounds shrill and strained. It might be time for a divorce.
