Vivid Imagination, with No Such Thing and Gothic Frog, Wednesday, August 16 at Cricket on the Hill, is filled with performers who are overqualified to entertain. After all, they're not just musicians, they're amateur sociologists, too: They spend hour upon hour absorbing all the stuff kids these days are supposed to be into (body piercing, Jenny Garth, slacker cult shows like The Brady Bunch) in order to produce their own troublemaker brand of local punk. They're energetic, angst-ridden, young, talented and, yes, vivid--credentials all worth checking out.
