And Tanita Ti-karam has added a second Paradise show for May 21. SEGER UPDATE: Bob Seger will not do a set, but only a single walk-on number with Don Henley at the Worcester Centrum April 25, as part of Henley's Walden Woods benefit. There had been rumors Seger might perform more extensively, but they were squashed yesterday by his manager, Punch Andrews. So what else has Seger been up to? He had 75 percent of an album done last fall, but the centerpiece - and expected first single -was a cover of Tom Waits' "Downtown Train," which was just a hit for Rod Stewart. "We were livid," said Andrews. "I called the publisher long ago and was willing to buy the song, for heaven's sake. But I was assured that wouldn't be necessary, and that we would still be the only major artist to cut it Then all of a sudden, Stewart's version comes out We couldn't believe it But the whole thing inspired Bob's creativity. He dropped three or four other people s tunes that he was thinking of doing -and started writing about 10 new songs. I'm pretty confident we'll have the album out by the fall." M-80 CHANGES: The cosmopolitan M-80 club at the front of the Paradise is stepping up its live music. A Tuesday night acoustic series will start May 15, with probably the Del Fuegos opening. Local and national acts will be mixed. And a Friday night alternativejazzfunkfu-sion series starts May 25.

Sheehan needs money to pay his taxes, so John Lincoln Wright the Boo-galoo Swamis, Screaming Coyotes and Orrin Star will convene for a show at the Stephen James House in Porter Square. STONES FLEECE JAPAN: Odd how the Japanese stock market , tb-V- I f I i " ; "V. f ' V - y : y v J 1 "kWiM inao Lite show tonight at Somervme. Raws, CJihtm Awards troubles seemed to coincjde with the Rolling Stones blowing into town. The Stones, making their first-ever appearance in Japan, recently took a reported $30 million out of Japanese pockets. They played 10 Tokyo shows for 50,000 people each, at a charge of $70 per ticket. Their juggernaut now heads to Europe for the summer, possibly climaxing with a show in Moscow. BEST GUITARIST ENCORE: The second annual competition for "Boston's Best Guitarist" kicks off next week. Presented by the Boston Area Live Entertainment Association, the contest's preliminary rounds are at Edible Rex on Monday, Jumbo's on Wednesday, Grover's on April 16 and Axis on April 18. The finals are at the Channel on May 1. For more info: 391-1417. The concert is co-sponsored by WBCN, Daddy's Junky Music Stores, Beat magazine and the Hard Rock Cafe. GUN MAKES DEBUT: Hailing from Scotland, Gun has a controversial name, but their Paradise debut on Wednesday was stacked with uplifting hard-rock. Their single, "Better Days," has been aired heavily on WBCN, but they're even better in concert than their record might imply. They're a cross between ACDC and U2, which isn't the worst place to be. A bright new hard-rock act BITS AND PIECES: The 12-hour Farm Aid IV is on the Nashville Network starting at noon tomorrow ... Bonnie Raitt's album, "Nick of Time," climaxed its post-Grammy climb to hit No. 1 this week . . . Tribe hits the Paradise tonight.
