Mark Mulcahy is charming as the singer for Miracle Legion, but he’s a delight by himself as well. His first solo achievement, the theme song to Nickelodeon’s The Adventures of Pete & Pete, is the most sweet and melancholy pop melody on the tube. Mulcahy performs the song during the show’s opening credits with a band called Polaris (a Ray Neal–less Miracle Legion) and when he jumps joyfully around on the show’s surrealistic suburban set, I proudly shed a tear for youth gone by. Such a feat for a first, so there’s a good chance the rest of Mulcahy’s material isn’t far from stellar, either. He performs with Rafe and Kevin Johnson at the HONKong Songwriters Showcase at 8:30 p.m. at Iota, 2832 Wilson Blvd., Arlington. FREE. (703) 522-8340. (TP)
