The Caballeros, and Ray Condo and theRicochets: The L.A.-based Cabs include former members of Russell Scott and the Red Hots, Bone Coot, Florida Slim and the Hurricanes and El Vez's band.

Even better is Condo's Western-bop outfit, a Canadian group that harks back to the glory days when country met jazz and spat out Bob Wills.

White Zombie: The group, named after the 1932 Bela Lugosi horror flick, is to heavy metal as Beavis and Butt-head is to American culture as a whole: a spoof that's so dead-on, it attracts the very brain-dead element it so deliciously slam-dunks; see the story on page 85.

Jackson Browne: Browne's not nearly the songwriter he once was, but, based on his most recent Valley gig--a love-in at Gammage Auditorium in which he received myriad requests for classic tunes and gloried in answering each and every one--he's still a hell of a performer.

Call 644-2560.

Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown: The lanky, long-limbed Texan is the master of many instruments, but he's primarily a powerhouse blues guitarist in the T-Bone Walker mold.
