When things are really going to shit—when the environment, the economy, and the state of foreign affairs seem so totally fucked that even middle-aged adults have taken to the streets in the United States of America—well, it's only natural that we should cling to music that's as familiar and comforting as a flannel blanky. The pinnacle of the track-by-track cover album was arguably achieved by the Flaming Lips' doing Dark Side of the Moon two years ago. Now, a group of Portland all-stars are unplugging The Wall, Pink Floyd's other masterpiece of personal isolation. Don't expect an aural facsimile; rumor has it that bluegrass may be involved. Regardless of the interpretation, The Wall wouldn't be the same without a squadron of angry children, which is where the School of Rock Kids Chorus comes in. REBECCA WILSON
