Remember when everybody gave Prince a whole bunch of shit for changing his name to an unpronounceable symbol? Well, Led Zeppelin did it first—way back in 1971, when everyone was too stoned to notice. Each member ascribed themselves a runic symbol, and all four symbols made up the title of their fourth album, now commonly called IV, or Zoso, after guitarist Jimmy Page's totally nutso, ornate symbol drawn from his dabblings in the occult. The other three's symbols were far more modest (drummer John Bonham simply redrew the logo from the can of Ballantine beer that was no doubt in front of him at the time). Tonight, local Zeppelin tribute band play Zep's IV in its entirety, and I probably wouldn't bother telling you about it except that it is a very sloooow week for music, and because of our weird holiday deadlines, I'm writing this like three weeks in advance. Besides, who couldn't use a little more "Misty Mountain Hop" in their lives? Dance in the dark of night, y'all. NED LANNAMANN
