Band seminar overflows onto Shore i t'll be raining rock V rollers in New York this week, thanks to the New Music Seminar, which will overload the city's clubs with more than 300 bands from around the world tonight through Wednesday. Some choice examples: The Original JBs and the New JBs, Tuesday at the Lyric, 213 W. 42nd St., pairs James Brown's band the Original JBs, who are calling themselves the Pee Wee Ellis Assembly, with rappers the Jungle Brothers. On Monday at Wetlands, 161 Hudson St, record company exec-for-the-night Mojo Nixon presents four bands he says are "too good to get signed." Pick a club and take a chance: There'll be rai music from Algeria, pop from Spain, rock from the Soviet Union and rap and underground rock from all over America. A New Music Nights pass, available for $95 by calling (2 1 2) 473-6 1 25, gets you into most of the shows, or you can pay for individual shows at the door. If you can't make it to the city, it's possible to experience a bit of the New Music Seminar at the Jersey Shore. Several bands who are performing for the music bizzers and fans at the seminar are paying their way with tours that will find them in local clubs this week as well. Among the ways to pretend you're there even though you aren't: The Austin 4-Alarm Tour includes four up-and-coming bands from Austin, Texas: Crazed roots-rockers the Neprunes, '60s-ish poppers Big Car, funksters Bouffant jellyfish and ian- gly art-poppers State of Mind. You may remember the Neptunes from three ripsnorting, anything-goes (did someone request Madonna? Sure, we can do that) shows at T-Birds Cafe over the past year. Their first album, Nocturnal Habit, is just out on Austin's REC Records. All four bands can be found on another REC album, Austin s 4-Alarm Taster," released in conjunction with the current tour. They perform at Kenny's Castaway's, 57 Uleecker St, New York, on Monday as part of the seminar, and at the Fast Lane 2, 207 Fourth Ave., Asbury Park, Tuesday. Lava Love, an Atlanta band whose debut album lands somewhere between the Go-Gos and the Cucumb ers, is at the Green Parrot 1 927 Route 33, Neptune, tonight (with Wooden Soldiers and Shakin' the Pumpkin), in advance of its seminar show tomorrow at CBGB, 315 Bowery, New York. The two-woman, three-man band sings slightly off-kilter songs about relationships, with jangly guitars and giddy harmonies. The Strawberry Zots check into the "V m - v i ) ) F t.-,., .,.:., , . s ... .It .,'.,.iv j-A-ii. , l"" .r . : . ,..-.... a'...,.. ..: The Strawberry Zots, an Albuquerque, N.M., band who revive 1960s garage-rock and psychedelia, appear at the Green Parrot tomorrow. Club Crawling Matty karas Green Parrot tomorrow (with Beatnik Pop, a former New Brunswick-area band now based in Los Angeles). The Zots are an Albuquerque, N.M., band who revive 1960s garage-rock and psychedelia in a way that shows equal reverence for the Troggs and the Partridge Family. "And You (Drive Your Pretty Car)," a typical song from their debut album, "Cars, Flowers and Telephones," is a dated, kitschy hippie sentiment, but the Zots play and sing it with such earnestness you can pretend it's 1966 and polka dots and long hair are still a fashion statement. Modern English, British poppers best known for the 1983 MTV smash "I Melt With You," broke up in the late '80s, but have resurfaced with a new album that includes a new, almost identical, version of "I Melt With You." Modern English's show with the Jack Rubies Sunday at the Rock Academy, 234 W. 43rd St., is one of the New Music Seminar's featured shows, and tonight the two bands are at the Stone Pony, 913 Ocean Ave., Asbury Park. Nine Inch Nails, an industrial dance band from Cleveland, is at the Rock Academy in a featured show the day after Modern English. Tonight, you can see Nine Inch Nails at City Gardens, 1701 Calhoun St., Trenton (granted, that's not exactly the Shore, but it's not exactly far away either). Gimme the Gun, the Hoboken band that won the Green Parrot's Original Band Competition last week, showcases its British-pop-from-America sound in a seminar show Wednesday at the Limelight, 660 Sixth Ave., New York. The following night, Gimme the Gun is at the Chatterbox, 514 Boulevard, Seaside Heights. ALSO CRAWLING AROUND: For a blues legend, Chicagoan Otis Rush is woefully under-recorded. But he's not at all under-heard at the Shore, where he's becoming something of a regular. Tonight, he's at Jason's, 1604 F St., South Belmar, with the Hounds opening and backing him up. . . Expose, the all-female dance-pop trio that's at Six Flags Great Adventure amusement park, Jackson Township, tonight, shares only a producer with the all-female dance-pop trio named Expose that stormed the charts with "Point of No Return" and three other singles a few years back; the band's second album, "What You Don't Know," features all new singers. But in these days of producer-driven pop, that doesn't necessarily matter... Left-wing thrashers Dirge and psychedelic guitar-hounds Monster Magnet offer some of the area's best and most aggressive local rock tonight at the Brighton Bar, 121 Brighton Ave., Long Branch . . . Another interesting local double-bill tonight pairs Nobody's Business and And So Are You, two bands that have their feet in both '60s hard rock and new wave styles, at Joey Harrison's Surf Club, 1990 Ocean Ave., Ortley Beach, Dover Township. Reggae singer Jah Love performs an early set at the Surf Club, at 8 p.m., and the rockers go on at 1 1 . . . TLC, a slick top-40 cover band from Matawan, celebrates its third anniversary tonight at the Osprey, 201 First Ave., Manasquan . . . The Biases and the Minx play high-energy garage-rock tomorrow at T-Birds Cafe, 707 Main St., Asbury Park . . . Also tomorrow, the Straight Sa-tans play loud and fast pop with Loose and Motel Shoot Out at the Brighton Bar. . . Iron Maiden lead singer Bruce Dickinson brings his solo tour to the Stone Pony Sunday, with Australian hard-rockers Kings of the Sun opening. The show is open to ages 18 and up . . . The same night, the Osprey hosts a rock-a-thon with five bands the Nerds, B Street Band, Bums in the Park, Turnstyles and Rhythm Method from 7 p.m. till 2 a.m. . . . Drumming legend Bernard Purdie sits in with the Jazz Lobsters Sunday afternoon at Donovan's Reef, Ocean Avenue, Sea Bright ... British reggae anger Pato Banton is best known for his toasting on the English Beat single "Pato and Roger A Go Talk." But he has three albums of his own, including the new "Wize Up" on I.R.S. Records. Banton is at the Green Parrot Tuesday . . . Olson's in Dover Township has suspended live music bookings on orders of the local fire inspector, who says the bar does not meet fire codes for a nightclub. The bar remains open, however. Matty Karas is an Asbury Park Press staff writer. Club Crawling appears Fridays. A folksy fj open-nukei evening Press Staff Report It was a real down-home and folksy kind Of night in Asbury Park on Wednesday. j The New Jersey Center for the Performing Arts launched its first open-mike night at Convention Hall in an evening filled with folk, rock, country, and rhythm and blues fun. ; The crowd was meager but enthusias tic. The small turnout did not faze Midge Guerre ra, the executive director of the New Jersey Center for the Performing Arts, which recently moved to Asbury Park. - She and her group are leading the effort to bring performing arts back to Asbury Park. .--i 'Our objective is to use the art's to help with the revitalization of Asbury Park and to provide local performers with an audience," she said. "' TJ. Moskalski, master of ceremonies for the evening, eased the crowd into singing, clapping and foot-stomping1 as the singers, songwriters and instrumentalists performed. . Calling the evening a "dress rehearsal bringing together talent and artists," Ms. Moskalski called upon the audience to help spread the word about future open- mike performances to attract both performers and patrons to Asbury Park.-' The music ranged from the calypso beat of opening act Leigh's Kids to the more melancholy tone of multi-instru mentalist Adam Brzostoski, who plays at the Stone Pony in Asbury and The Walt Street Pub in Red Bank. Perennial favorite singer-songwriter Bob Killian, known for his appearances at the Clearwater Folk Festival, treated the crowd to his originals on acoustic guitar. Open-mike nights will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays and 3:30 to 5:30 m. Sundays through August. Admission is $3, and performers are encouraged to audition in all categories, including music, comedy, acting, singing and magic. For more information, call (201) 776- 7776 or(201) 531-8712.
