Price: $10

One of rock 'n' roll history's most fascinating aspects is the Lost Album -- the Beach Boys' Smile and Guns N' Roses at-long-last Chinese Democracy are the most famous examples -- another is the aborted opera by the Who, Lifehouse. Pete Townsend committed the songs to demos but was unable to convince the rest of the lads to go for it -- but some of the project's "fallout" landed on Who's Next. Local rock collectivusmaximusMushroom has taken it upon itself to give life to what might've been. Along with Naked Barbies' ace vocalist Patty Spiglanin, Mushroom will perform Lifehouse in its entirety. The changeling Mushroom can do it, too -- its fluid membership gives Mushroom the moxie and scope to excel with psychedelic folk-pop, classic rock (i.e., Steppenwolf, Joe Cocker), and Jack McDuff-meets-Can space jams. With Spiglanin, John Pollock (of Citay), and Matt Cunitz (Brightblack Morning Light) in tow, prepare not to get fooled again but good. On Friday, March 6 at the Starry Plough (3101 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) with Mike Therieau. 9 p.m., $10. StarryPloughPub.com
