9pm

Pop Music

"Woke up this morning and found out my career wasn't dead after all. . . . " That might have been the refrain sung by the English band A3, one of those provocative outfits that appeared too complex and edgy to survive. But on the way to its funeral, its song "Woke Up This Morning" became the opening theme of "The Sopranos," and voila--here they are with a new album, "La Peste," and a new shot.

* A3, with Mocean Worker, the Roxy, 9009 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood. 9 p.m. $13.50. (310) 278-9457.
