Tracy Chapman . . . Richie Havens. Black folk-singers remain a rare breed in pop music, but the genre boasts an important newcomer in 26-year-old singer-songwriter Jeffrey Gaines, who mesmerized the audience on Friday at the Largo. Gaines came on like a traditional troubadour, but he was vocally daring--sort of Sting-like in his use of offbeat phrasing, veering off the standard melodic lines at unexpected moments.

December 5, 1994 | MIKE BOEHM and * Jeffrey Gaines and Paula Cole play tonight at the Roxy, 9009 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, at 7:30. $18. (310) 278-9457.

Headliner Gaines is a 28-year-old Pennsylvanian with two albums to his credit, and Cole, 26, is a Massachusetts-based newcomer with one release. Both offer material that is intelligent, deeply felt and melodically attractive.

Beset by career uncertainty, mulling over his life's fundamental contradictions, Jeffrey Gaines is in much the same position as many others in this age of anxiety, except this rock troubadour from Pennsylvania sounds as if he's handling it a lot more cheerfully than most.

Melissa Etheridge is as exuberant on stage as a grinning kid who's rushing around to show everyone the great present she just opened. What she showed the audience at the Universal Amphitheatre on Tuesday was an indefatigable spirit and plenty of rip-roaring rock songs and confessional pop tunes.

Reggae acts at the wingding will include performances by Don Carlos (former lead singer of Black Uhuru), Isaac Haile Selassie, Jah Bone, the Reggae Angels, the Cannons and more.
