"The Litanies of Satan." Diamanda Galas. Target. $25. As a singer, Galas makes Nina Hagen sound like Anne Murray, and when she wields two microphones she looks like a glitter Gypsy impersonating a walrus. In this 20-minute concert video, director-editor Joe Reese finds good visual parallels for the demonic diva's atonal flights through Baudelaire, keeping things lively and providing some scary fun with solarizations, grainy altered images, strobe effects, freeze frames and ghostly emanations. Obviously not for everyone, but true to its nature. Information: (818) 766-6877. 1/2
