On Saturday, McMorris and the handful of other computer musicians who form the group VALIS (short for Vast Active Laptop Intelligence System), will plug into a P.A. upstairs at the Ottobar and deliver a few hours of live, improvised drum and bass.

Given the popularity of the "hip" stores, Valis, a University of Delaware sophomore, might be surprised to know of the trouble lurking for some apparel chains - Gap Inc., for one - or that the specialty retail category as a whole has faced months of sluggish sales.
