The album follows Lennon's 1998 solo debut, "Into the Sun," and the subsequent nine years of artistic incubation during which the now 31-year-old performer spent time collaborating with a range of independents from the worlds of film and music. Those artists include his mother, Yoko Ono, as well as Money Mark, Deltron 3030, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Vincent Gallo, Thurston Moore, John Zorn, Ryan Adams, The Boredoms and Ben Lee. "There was a long period after the first album where I felt disillusioned with the machinery of the industry," Lennon said in a press release. "It's not that I stopped recording, playing and performing; I did all of those things, just more discreetly. 'Friendly Fire' is an experiment to see what it might be like to do music more publicly again." Guests musicians on "Friendly Fire" include multi-instrumentalist Jon Brion on organ, guitars and drums; Cibo Mato co-founder Yuka Honda on piano, keyboards and bass; Matt Chamberlain, formerly of Pearl Jam, on drums; Harper Simon on guitars and Bijou Phillips on backing vocals. . Lennon also has written and prrxf new! K short films to ac company each of the album's tracks. The pieces, which are included in the "Friendly Fire" package, feature backdrops ranging from underwater to outer space and include appearances by Carrie Fisher, Lindsay Lohan, Asia Argento, Devon Aoki, Jordana Brewster and Bijou Phillips. Lennon will be joined by special guests Women and Children and Kamila Thompson. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance and $22 at the door. The Stone Pony is at 913 Ocean Ave. in Asbury Park. For more information, call (732) 502-0600 or visit on the Web. On the way up Melodic pop singer songwriter Roark kicks off his first nationwide tour Saturday at the Internet Cafe in Red Bank. Roark will be joined by Medina, Ohio, folk rocker Pete Nischt and will be performing selections from his debut full-length release, "Break of Day." A native of Pompton Plains, Roark (a.k.a. Brian O'Neal) says he grew up enamored with a wide variety of popular music and credits the genesis of "Break of Day" to the influence of such musicians as James Taylor, Kurt Cobain and Toad the Wet Sprocket "I was born to be a musician," he said. "I always loved singing, theater, even Italian opera. My parents were shocked when I didn't go to music school. "I worked for a Fortune 500 company," he says. "It was terrible. I'd rather be a struggling musician." Thanks to his friendship with Ace Enders (of Hammonton-based The Early November) and Chris Badami, Roark was able to showcase for Love Minus Zero Recordings in 2005. Badami and Roark (former band-mates in Pequannock poprock outfit Casual Blue) soon teamed up at Badami's Portrait Recording Studios in Lincoln Park to record "Break of Day." "It was invaluable having Chris," says Roark. "We're great friends to begin with, and having a great personal relationship was a solid foundation for a great musical relationship." Though he isn't sure who said it, Roark said he likes to quote the critic who noted there really are only a few subjects artists tend to explore. "Love, death, fear you can always tie everything back to these fundamental things," Roark said. As a songwriter, Roark subscribes to the approach of poet Robert Frost, who once described his art as freedom in . harness. "Most every lyric I write has to rhyme. I need the restraint; otherwise, there are too many ways to say things," Roark said. "A lot of my guitar playing is rhythmic in nature. I'll never be a shredder, ripping out crazy solos." The Internet Cafe is at 1 W. Front Street in Red Bank. For more information, call (732) 842-4503 or visit on the Web. " o o J a & 3' O
