Daily News of Los Angeles (CA)

Longtime local favorite X makes a rare San Fernando Valley appearance Saturday night at the California State University, Northridge, North Campus (formerly Devonshire Downs) on Zelzah Avenue and Devonshire Street in Northridge.

The veteran Los Angeles band is once again a quartet. Guitarist and former Blaster Dave Alvin recently left the band to pursue his own combo, leaving Tony Gilkinson, formerly of Lone Justice, to handle the guitar chores alone. Nonetheless, the band's new Don Gehman-produced album should be in the stores soon.

Another veteran local act, the Dickies, known for its frantic cartoon-punk persona and various odes to television, including its cover of the ''Gigantor" theme song and "Stuck in a Pagoda With Tritia Toyota," is also on the bill, as well as the hot tribal-metal-funk roar of Jane's Addiction. After a bidding war, the band was recently signed by Warner Bros. for a very large sum of money.

Alvin fans can catch Dave Alvin & the Allnighters Saturday at the Palomino, 6907 Lankershim Blvd., in North Hollywood. Alvin's new country combo, which reportedly performs rearranged versions of songs the guitarist wrote for the Blasters, plays with local boys the Lonesome Strangers and fast- rising country starlet Rosie Flores.

Mainstream fans might want to stop by At My Place, 1026 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica, and catch Billy Vera & the Beaters tonight and Saturday. Vera and the Beaters hit big with "At This Moment" a few months ago. Movie fans might have caught the band's appearance in Blake Edwards' "Blind Date."

Jazz fans on a tight budget should drop by the Wadsworth Theatre, located on the grounds of the Veterans Hospital in West Los Angeles at 7 p.m. Sunday for a performance by the New American Orchestra, directed by Jack Elliot, featuring special guest artist two-time Grammy Award-winner Ernie Watts. This concert is part of the Jazz at the Wadsworth Series and is free, so get there early. If you don't get in, you can catch the second hour of the show live on KKGO-FM (105.1) with host Chuck Niles.

On a different note, Texas blues legend Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown and his band perform Saturday at McCabe's, 3101 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica.

If rockabilly is more your thing, check out Robert Gordon, who plays tonight at the Palace, 1735 N. Vine St., Hollywood. Gordon, a former member of the New York punk band the Tuff Darts, re-emerged as a rockabilly rebel in 1977 and had a minor hit with his version of Bruce Springsteen's "Fire." His current band features guitarist Chris Spedding and drummer Anton Fig, whom some may recognize from David Letterman's house band.

Fans who are still excited about U2's recent engagement in town can talk about it and watch videos of the band at "A Celebration" at 7 Sunday at the Lhasa Club, 1110 N. Hudson St., Hollywood. The club, which donates all its proceeds to Amnesty International and World Vision, will feature a live performance by the 60th Parallel.

Sunday is the night of the living clones. At Sasch, 11345 Ventura Blvd., Studio City, you can see Rain, a tribute to the Beatles. If you liked the Doors better than the Fab Four, head out to the Whisky a-Go-Go, 8901 Sunset Blvd., Hollywood, and see Wild Child do Doorsian things in the club where Jim Morrison and company played some of their most fabled shows. The Things open the show.

Tonight at the Whisky, Concrete Blonde, Dream Syndicate and Downey Mildew close their two-night stand.
