But just give a listen to the rocka, surfa, punka-billy licks of The Amazing Royal Crowns self-titled album (Kingdom Records) and you're hooked. This Providence, R.I., foursome plays real fast and real hard. And the howling voice of lead singer King Kendall is one you can't turn away from.

BRYON RIVERS B THEATER You think you've had a busy week? Jan McArt has had her hands full readying two new productions. Upstairs in her Rooftop Cabaret Theatre, she is pre-miering a new seasonal entry that she and co-producer Kevin Bogan are confidently calling The Holiday Season A Musical Christmas Spectacular. It features numbers from Irving Berlin to Barry Mani-low. Downstairs, in the Royal Palm Dinner Theater mainstage, the final touches are being put on Meet Me in St. Louis, a nostalgic look at a rosy family around the turn of the century, not unlike the 1944 Judy Garland movie. Previews begin on Tuesday. HAP ERSTEIN B CLASSICAL MUSIC Cellist Yo-Yo Ma is one of the few classical musicians whose crossover project, Ma has tackled the tango music of the Argentinian master, Astor Piazzolla. Now, he's taking the concept to the stage: With several musicians, he presents Tango Apasionado at Miami's Gusman Center on Monday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25-$75. Call Ticketmaster at 966-3309. CHARLES PASSY B ART Surrealism and American Art 1932-1949 at the Boca Raton Museum of Art contains 45 works tracing an under-scrutinized period of American art history. In the '30s, American surrealists such as the young Arshile Gorky romanced the movement. During World War II, European surrealists such as Max Ernst and Yves Tanguy came to America. They traded ideas with the Yanks, clawed with each other, and helped establish an aesthetic sensibility that led to the triumph of American Abstract Expressionism. The show contains work by Gottlieb, Rothko, Masson, and many others, both noted and overlooked. Through Jan. 11 GARY SCHWAN B MOVIES There are unnecessary scenes in the sprawling Boogie Nights, but there isn't a dull one. Writerdirector Paul Thomas Anderson tosses the kitchen sink into the long film about the '70s porn industry in Los Angeles, including laughs and every camera trick devised by man. The result is one of the year's most engaging movies. Burt Reynolds is in great form as a cheapo filmmaker with artistic delusions a low-rent Hugh Hefner who plays papa to an extended family of porn "stars." GARY SCHWAN thing in between. Now 73 years old and in his sixth decade of performing, Brown is touring in support of his latest release, Gate Swings, a big-band jazz album. Brown appears at the Back Room at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday. Tickets are $10. Call 243-9110. B THE ROLLING STONES Maybe Keith Richards has no idea what planet he's on. Maybe Mick Jagger has lost a step. Maybe they're too old to really rock. Yeah, right. When we last saw our heroes they blew up Pro Player Stadium with a kickin' show that included guests like B.B. King and Sheryl Crow. This time The Stones bring a brand new list of kickin' tunes from Bridges to Babylon and openers Dave Matthews Band, The Smashing Pumpkins and Third Eye Blind to the Orange Bowl in Miami for the concert event of the year (back of the bus, Lollapalooza). Show time is 4 p.m. today. Tickets are $75 and $50. Call (305) 643-7100. B GEORGE BELLOWS George Bellows (1882-1925) is widely known for his sweaty boxing paintings, but he also created delicate winter landscapes in the Northeast. The Norton Museum of Art has organized George Bellows: Love of Winter. The show, which runs Saturday-Feb. 8, includes 25 paintings completed between 1905 and 1915.
