The Robert Cray Band turned a lot of heads at the Greek Theatre in September when it opened for local boys Los Lobos with a scorching set of blues-infested rock 'n' roll. Tonight, the Georgia-born, Seattle-bred singer- guitarist and band return to Los Angeles, riding high on its major label debut album "Strong Persuader." Catch them at the Palace, 1735 N. Vine St., Hollywood, for what may be the last time before Cray moves on to headline bigger halls.

Cartoonish rockers Cheap Trick, who had their heyday in the late '70s, play the Palace on Monday.

Lonnie Mack, another blues-influenced guitarist, has been making music since Cray was in his teens. During his lengthy career, Mack has vanished from the public eye three times, yet he still managed to have a profound influence on a generation of guitarists, especially Stevie Ray Vaughan. Mack and his famous Gibson Flying V guitar will headline tonight at Club Lingerie, 6507 Sunset Blvd., Hollywood.

An Allstar Celebrity Jam, Saturday at the Palomino, 6907 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, honors Rolling Stones guitartist Keith Richards' 43rd birthday. Veteran session guitarist Earle Slick of Phantom, Rocker and Slick headlines the show that also will include surprise guest appearances.

On the alternative front, Britain's Love and Rockets, three-fourths of the late gloom band Bauhaus, check into the Hollywood Palladium, 6215 Sunset Blvd., Hollywood, in support of its new Bigtime album "Express." Two like- minded British imports, the Bolshoi and the Lucy Show, open the evening.

Contrast Night, tonight at the Lhasa Club, 1110 N. Hudson Ave., Hollywood, is sponsored by Contrast Magazine, a new locally based publication. The evening will feature some of Los Angeles' most important underground acts. Folk-rockers Pop Art, fronted by a trio of brothers from Granada Hills, open the show. The Balancing Act supports its fine Peter Case-produced album, and the multiethnic-influenced 17 Pygmies make their first appearance in 10 months. Jane's Addiction rounds out the bill. The price of admission includes the debut issue of Contrast.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, conservative television and radio personality Wally George tries his hat at rock 'n' roll tonight at At My Place, 1026 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica. George will cover such all-American classics as "Surfin' U.S.A.," "Livin' in the U.S.A.," "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A.," "God Bless the U.S.A." and "Born in the U.S.A." But don't expect Wally to include a cover of the Clash's "I'm So Bored With the U.S.A."
