Sid 'n' Susie Deliver

Saturday night's Susanna Hoffs/Matthew Sweet show at the Roxy on the Sunset Strip was pure pop heaven. They performed their entire album of 1960s (and one '70s) favorites, "Under the Covers Vol. 1," then came back for an encore of "Manic Monday" (during which Susanna seemed to genuinely forget the words, with the audience gleefully coming to her aid) and a Matthew Sweet song I didn't recognize, but that brought the house down.

As if the pictures above hadn't already illustrated this, yes -- Susanna Hoffs has entered into a pact with the Devil. The woman is more gorgeous at 47 than she was at 27. "Best legs in Hollywood!" was the word in the audience -- and just about the "best" everything else (she is just too adorable for words).

If you haven't already, check out the "Under the Covers" album. You'll be glad you did.
