BELIEVE IT OR DON’T: Whenever Harry Dean Stanton performs, he draws a crowd. And his Club Lingerie show last weekend was no exception, drawing such celebs as Jack Nicholson (wearing his shades and touting the Lakers), Sam Shepard and Penny Marshall. . . .

If you like Israeli pop, of which Ofra Haza is the latest hip practitioner, then perhaps you would want to sample the charms of Egyptian pop, which will waft across the KCRW-FM airwaves Wednesday at 10 a.m. on Tom Schnabel’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic.” Special guest Samir Hachim (an entertainment writer) will offer “New Sounds from the Middle East,” with new songs from such Egyptian popsters Ali Hmida, Mohammad Munir and Ali Hajjar.
