These things go through stages, of course, but regardless of whether the current rock 'n' roll buzz is in the Athens, Ga., or Minneapolis music scenes, the attention always seems to eventually return to Los Angeles' erratic musical output. This is the same town that launched the huge and varied talents of the Doors and the Beach Boys, after all, not to mention talented, though less popularly recognized, outfits like X and the Blasters.

And the charged big-city environment of Hollywood and other communities has certainly helped provoke the musical edge that is inherent in bands like Jane's Addiction. On the group's big-label debut album, "Nothing's Shocking," singer Perry Farrel leads the quartet through a set of high-volume passion and anguish, as in songs like "Had a Dad." Evidently, the band's music has struck a specific chord with locals. Jane's Addiction appears Thursday through April 22, April 25-26 and April 28-29 at the John Anson Ford Theatre, 2580 Cahuenga Blvd. West, Hollywood.

The Bangles are a former local club band that has made the the leap to larger halls after a string of top-10 singles that started with "Manic Monday" and "Walk Like an Egyptian." First heckled as a Go-Go's copy, the all-female quartet has since proven to have a sound and style of its own. The Bangles perform songs from their new "Everything" album at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, 1855 Main St., Santa Monica.

Another tradition will be on hand for two shows tonight when the Original Dillards present their bluegrass sounds, along with Eric & Suzy Thompson's folk rhythms, at the Granada Hills Masonic Hall, 16535 Rinaldi St., Granada Hills.

Sally Rogers and Howie Bursen also perform folk sounds in a free show sponsored by the Caltech Folk Music Society at 8 p.m. Saturday at Caltech's Winnett Lounge on the Pasadena campus.

A rare local taste of gospel music is offered by the visiting Holman Concert Choir, singing the "30th Annual Concert of Negro Spirituals." Conducted by Wilbert Howard, the choir performs at 8 p.m. Sunday at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Music Center, 135 N. Grand Ave., Los Angeles.

Since its beginnings, the Kronos Quartet has made a point of pushing the boundaries of what is expected from a string quartet, with a repertoire that stretches from the classics to the newer works of Frank Zappa and Jimi Hendrix. The quartet performs at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Wadsworth Theatre, Veterans Administration Grounds, Brentwood.

Irvine will resemble a down-home country music picnic Sunday with Chili, Willie & Merle taking over at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre. The chili in question is a chili cookoff that starts at 11 a.m. The music begins at 6 p.m. with Willie Nelson & Family, Merle Haggard & the Strangers, the Desert Rose Band and Mason Dixon. For cookoff info, call 760-0338. For tickets, call 740-2000.

For those who like to take a walk on the wilder side, two big shows are going on in LA this weekend. The irascible Lou Reed, fresh from the white-hot anger of his hard-hitting "New York" LP, plays the Universal Amphitheatre in North Hollywood on Saturday. Reportedly, Reed even has been angering some fans on this tour with some of his raps. With New Jersey's acclaimed Feelies opening, this could be one of the high points of the concert year. Call Ticketmaster, 740-2000.

A stone's throw away at the John Anson Ford Theatre, LA's art-metal Jane's Addiction continues its seven-night run, which began last night. Each night features a different opening act, all of whom are hot on the rock underground. Tonight it's the Buck Pets, and Saturday it's the Flaming Lips. The run picks up again Tuesday. Call Ticketmaster, 740-2000.

For Irvine Meadows, tickets are on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. for Queensryche/Warrant/Leatherwolf May 12. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster. Call 740-2000.

Tickets go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. for Jimmy Buffett's performance at the Pacific Amphitheatre in Costa Mesa on June 23 and 24. For information, call 634-1300.

For Anaheim's Celebrity Theatre, tickets are on sale for New Kids on the Block (June 4); Luis Miguel (June 10); Louis Anderson/Dennis Miller (June 16); Ashford & Simpson (Aug. 25); and Earl Thomas Conley/Forrester Sisters (Nov. 11). Call 535-2000.

Los Angeles County officials have revoked the operating permit of the John Anson Ford Theatre from its current lessees, allegedly because of alcohol sales violations.

"There was some talk about revoking the permit because of poor management of the theater," said Julio Guevara, Los Angeles County Department of Recreation and Parks regional operations manager. "The coup de grace was the operator violated his conditional-use permit with respect to serving alcohol (on weekdays)."

Troy Hassett, the theater's former lessee, refused to comment on the revocation, which takes effect June 1. The alcohol sales were said to have occurred during a recent series of concerts by Jane's Addiction, a local rock group.

Although there have been complaints from people living near the theater regarding noise and parking, those problems were not the major reasons for the revocation, Guevara said.

The revocation was decided at a meeting Tuesday with recreation and parks officials and representatives from county Supervisor Edmund Edelman's office. Edelman represents the 3rdDistrict, which includes the Ford Theatre.

Several concert promoters confirmed they had been told Tuesday the operating permit had been revoked and Hassett's offices at the theater would be vacated by next week.

Among the concerts originally scheduled for June at the open-air theater overlooking the Holly- wood Bowl were three nights of the Ramones, set for June 1-3. The Hollywood Hills Blues Festival, formerly sched- uled for June 10 and 11, has been canceled.

The Ramones dates have been rescheduled for June 2 at the Hollywood Palladium.
