Mary Weiss, The Love Me Nots By Falling James 
Remember walking in the sand? Mary Weiss does. She was one of the leaders of the pack of bad girls known as the Shangri-Las, a '60s band who were tougher and more independent than any of Phil Spector's girl-group puppets. Their classic tunes were later covered by Aerosmith, the Go-Go's, Redd Kross and the New York Dolls, and Weiss was the charismatic role model for such future divas as Amy Winehouse and the Detroit Cobras' Rachel Nagy. When she returned to the spotlight after a very long absence with her excellent 2007 solo CD, Dangerous Game (Norton Records) — which featured the catchy potential hit "Stop and Think It Over" and the all-too-aptly-titled "Cry About the Radio" — she was wise enough to employ the talents of the Reigning Sound and garage-rock auteur Greg Cartwright instead of a typical slick session band. Weiss makes her local solo debut on this opening night of the Mondo Hollywood Festival, headlining a bill that also incl The Love Me Nots, who are one of the few modern garage-rock revivalists whose lust-ridden, keyboard-pumped songs rank with their storied influences. (The coed Phoenix combo even titled their groovy new CD, 'DETROIT', in a nod to their sonic inspirations as well as their ubiquitous Motor City producer, Jim Diamond.) The fest continues Sunday with a rare visit by the Electric Prunes ("I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night") and a horde of rockabilly and garage bands. The whole damn thing gets started early at 2 p.m. http://www. laweekly. com/index. php?option=com_calendar&task=events&Itemid=571&searchtab=event&oid=26676
