Less than two years ago, John Oates reunited with Daryl Hall, for an "Up Close and Personal Tour" with the '80s-era rock & soul pioneers. But when he performs without Hall, as he will tonight, he performs mostly his own material, including music from the new Mississippi Mile, an ode to artists and songs that influenced him. He'll also perform a few Hall and Oates' tunes, but in an interpretive, acoustic vein. Yeah, that ought to work real well for "Maneater." Friday, May 27. Doors at 7 p.m. The State Theatre, 220 North Washington St., Falls Church. Tickets are $35. Call 703-237-0300 or visit thestatetheatre.com.
