O Lord Jesus, do you think I've served my time? The eight legs of the Devil now are crawling up my spine. That harrowing image from "Let My People Go," the adapted gospel song that Diamanda Galas used to open and close her flawed but fascinating 75-minute set at the Palace on Friday, is one good measure of why the new music vocalist's "The Singer" project is a conceptual masterstroke.

Art for therapy has been big for a long time--as long as I can remember, which is about 47 years. So long, that many readers can be incensed by Christopher Knight's sensible and closely reasoned article ("What Exactly Can Art Heal?," Nov. 4). Incensed, so far as I can gather, because for them, art's only value is therapeutic. Attack that and you're attacking art. And not just attacking art, but attacking artists and art societies and the people who have been or will be healed by art's gentle ministrations.

Diamanda Galas is curled up on a couch in a private room at the Regent, the chichi hotel where all the rock stars stay. Fresh off a plane from Switzerland, she is here on a press stop before heading on to Norway. She has been blitzing around Europe this way for weeks now.

Diamanda Galas' most famous work is "Plague Mass." Her music has been called "Schrei Opera"--from the German word for "shriek." With a wildly shifting three-octave range and songs about tragic love, AIDS and the kind of joy that only arises from deep despair, Galas doesn't entertain, she threatens.

"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.

The AFI USA Independent Showcase, which over the last six months has provided one-week theatrical runs for films that have otherwise been unable to obtain regular release, concludes on a bravura note with Amy Greenfield's dazzling, demanding "Antigone/Rites of Passion" (at Laemmle's Grande downtown).

The costumes are filmy, stringy, tight and revealing. The dancers are hard-bodied and hot. The movement is crisp, kinetic, stage-devouring and full of surprise popcorn explosions. The Stephen Petronio Company made a sensational Orange County debut Thursday to close the enterprising Feet First Contemporary Dance Series at the Irvine Barclay Theatre.
