TATTOOS have played a leading role in singer-songwriter Jake La Botz's life since he self-applied his first one with India ink and a sewing needle when he was 14. That pentagram has long since disappeared under ink applied at the hands of more experienced, and hygienic, tattooists. But now he has found a way to bundle his love of music and body art with a cross-country tour of tattoo parlors to promote his fourth CD, "Graveyard Jones."

Eddie Nichols is a superstar. The Royal Crown Revue frontman never looked or sounded better than last Thursday at the Key Club. And now I know why RCR's sax player Mando has so much soul. He was raised in Watts.... The Key Club party was in honor of Mark Mahoney, sort of a welcome-to-the-neighborhood for his Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlor. And by the by, crooner Jake LaBotz is doing a Saturday residency at the Shamrock.... Was happy as a clam at Joey Sehee's recent Moomba gig.

It got a bit hard to sort out the Lifetime Achievement honorees from the regular winners during the annual Los Angeles Weekly Music Awards at the Henry Fonda Music Box Theatre on Thursday. Devo, one of the former, still was committing its art terror in Akron, Ohio, when the Weirdos, who won for best punk band, were helping define L.A. music 28 years ago. Lifetime honoree Mike Watt (his mother accepting for him in his absence) helped invent L.A.

Club Make-up is going out in a blaze of glammed-up glory with a celebration of the 30th-anniversary of David Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust" album Saturday at the El Rey Theatre. The monthly L.A. dance club, which ushered in a new era in fashion and music, is saying sayonara with the Bowie blowout. But promoter Joseph Brooks says it's the first of many farewell shows, with plans in the works for periodic mega Make-up parties. We sure hope so.

As one era ends, a new one begins. While celebrating the bittersweet glam finale of Club Make-Up on Saturday at the El Rey Theater, I followed the flier trail to the next episode of "As the Scene Turns." Turns out, everyone's pumpin' up the volume on "electroclash" (think '80s new wave with a modern twist). Club 7969 in WeHo is jump-starting again with Friday night's debut of the electroclash club Synthetic, Jason Lavitt's new dance party.

Butter getting ready to churn on Robertson It's better with Butter, the name of the new spot opening up at the former Pearl/LunaPark on Robertson in WeHo. Butter should be ready for its close-up in mid-October. Owner Steve Marlton also owns Sugar and the Beach on Sunset, which he managed to transform from the former Dublin's into a chic beach-themed venue that includes such giant confections as the Tidal Wave, the Fog Cutter and the Wipe Out -- cocktails upwards of 60 ounces.

Sometimes, there's nothing like a dive. The kind of spot where you come as you are, the jukebox plays all your favorite songs and the guy at the bar's seen better days. Sheryl Crow sang about it so perfectly in that boozy gem "All I Wanna Do." The Parlour Club, a new joint on Santa Monica Boulevard, was created out of the ashes of an old hustler bar called the Pub, a sketchy dive in West Hollywood that had surely seen better days.

A comfy connection The spawn of Fugazi still proliferate on the indie rock landscape, but if you subtract the whiners, there are precious few bands as arty and literate as their forebears. Maybe that's how the Valley Arena caught the ear of Thursday frontman Geoff Rickley, who signed the Long Beach quartet to his Astro Magnetics imprint.
