Now that the grunge backlash is in full effect and Green Day has thrived on power-pop, third-generation punk is making way for its even lighter-hearted sister: ska. At the Palace on Sunday, Berkeley's premier ska group, the Dance Hall Crashers, played with the enthusiasm of a brand-new act, although it's been slogging it out around the East Bay for nearly a decade.

A soulful voice to bank on Ask anyone who crowded into the Temple Bar on Dec. 6 to witness Rhian Benson's showcase, and they'll tell you a new voice soon will be echoing across the neo-soul/urban-music landscape. Benson's debut album isn't due until April, but her label, the fledgling Universal City-based DKG Music, has decided to rush out an EP next month.

During Elvis Costello's first tours in the late 1970s, he often would play a frenzied 35 minutes or so, then leave the stage, no encore in sight. While this ticked off some people, such energetic performances created an atmosphere of undeniable spontaneity and excitement. Enough to make Elvis proud, Berkeley's Dance Hall Crashers operated in much the same hurried state on Sunday before an adoring capacity crowd at the Galaxy Concert Theatre.

Ska is a hardy and infectious musical strain, and by her mid-teens, Elyse Rogers, lead singer of the Dance Hall Crashers, was so bitten by the bug that she was climbing out the window of her Anaheim home to sneak off to concerts. "I got hold of a couple of Madness tapes and Specials and English Beat, and I fell in love with it," Rogers said, recalling her first encounter with English ska-revival bands of the early 1980s, the "bad influences" that she blames for sending her AWOL as a teenager.

It will be Ladies Night at the Ventura Theatre tonight, on the stage particularly. The ska-flavored, dance-inducing Berkeley-based Dance Hall Crashers, fronted by Elyse Rogers and Karina Denike, will headline. More female rockers, the Muffs and Buck, will open the show. The Crashers are touring in support of their fourth album, "Purr," another collection of pop and ska songs featuring dual vocalists who can really sing, unlike the off-key screamers in bands such as Mary's Danish.

Acoustic Bluesfest '99, originally slated to be held at Cafe Voltaire's new location at Ash and Main streets in Ventura, will move across the street to the Elks Lodge. And from here on out, the only music to be heard at Cafe Voltaire will be "The Sounds of Silence"--without Simon & Garfunkel. On the face of it, acoustic music shouldn't fluster anyone, but a few weeks ago police shut down a show by the Tatters, an acoustic group featuring a trio of female singers.

To most of the world, the connection between rock music and skateboarding begins and ends with that wistful example of perfect Southern California maidenhood floating in slow motion against a perfect Southern California sky in Tom Petty's "Free Fallin' " video. The rock-skate connection made over the weekend in the Olympic Velodrome at Cal State Dominguez Hills involved nothing quite so elegant.
