BEST BETS: Sunday 7/7

July 04, 2002

8pm Pop Music

Lyle Lovett weathered some emotional lumps during his short-lived marriage to Julia Roberts, which may have helped him rebound from the physical ones he got in March after being trampled by a bull on his uncle's farm in suburban Houston. Bruises physical or emotional are what Lovett deals with most astutely in his consistently wry and insightful country-soul music.

Lyle Lovett, the Grove of Anaheim, 2200 E. Katella Ave. 8 p.m. $62 to $67.50. (714) 712-2700.

7:30pm World Music

Africa and the New World have been tossing rhythms back and forth for centuries, and the beat goes on at the Hollywood Bowl in "African Heart/Latin Soul," part of this summer's World Music Series. Hugh Masekela's soulful trumpet provides the African heart, with pianist Eddie Palmieri adding the soul via a Nuyorican blend of jazz, pop and salsa. Ozomatli varies the menu with its eclectic Latin rhythms, and Yerba Buena tops off the evening with a set of simmering Afro-beat Cuban pop.

Yerba Buena Ensemble, Ozomatli, Hugh Masekela and Eddie Palmieri in "African Heart/Latin Soul," Hollywood Bowl, 2301 N. Highland Ave., Hollywood. 7:30 p.m. $1 to $93. (323) 850-2000.

8pm Pop Music

It's been nearly a decade since we last got an album from the Breeders. During that time, the celebrated alt-rock band fronted by former Pixies bassist Kim Deal and her twin sister, Kelley, has dealt with a succession of personnel changes as well as Kelley's time in drug rehab. The band acknowledges the effect of the various setbacks in the title of its oft-postponed new album, "Title TK," journalistic shorthand for "title to come."

The Breeders, El Rey Theatre, 5515 Wilshire Blvd., L.A. 8 p.m. $16.50.

(323) 936-4790.
