It's a mark of Lit's grounded attitude about the music business that in the band members' shared dream of being on stage at Irvine Meadows, it is still daylight as they begin to play--not as headliners, but as an opening act. "Our ultimate dream is to be at Irvine Meadows with the sun setting behind the lawn," said Jeremy Popoff, who plays guitar and writes the Anaheim band's songs in collaboration with his younger brother, singer A. Jay Popoff.

Allen Shellenberger, the drummer for the multiplatinum-selling Orange County rock band Lit, has died. He was 39. Shellenberger died of brain cancer Thursday at his mother's home in Artesia, said Ken Phillips, the band's publicist. Shellenberger was diagnosed with malignant glioma in May 2008 and began undergoing treatment; he performed with the band until last fall. "To know Al was to know laughter," band members Kevin Baldes, Jeremy Popoff and A. Jay Popoff said in a joint statement.

Lit's breakthrough 1999 hit, "My Own Worst Enemy," was about a guy who wakes up one morning after a binge to find his car on the lawn, his girl gone and no clue about what happened. As the single turned into the most popular modern-rock radio song of that year, according to Billboard magazine, the Anaheim rock band's four members started feeling as if they'd awakened to a strange new world without really knowing how it happened.

The show must go on . . . rock 'n' roll will never die . . . and where it all happens shouldn't really matter. But it does. Which makes the opening of a new chapter of the House of Blues in Anaheim a newsworthy event, boding mostly well for Orange County music fans. So on Friday's opening of the Anaheim venue, located on the new Downtown Disney outdoor mall adjacent to Disneyland, a sold-out crowd came to hear local heroes Lit perform its anthems of pop-punk-metal self-awareness.

Lit didn't catch artistic or commercial fire with the skillful but uninspired grunge rehash of its 1997 debut album, "Tripping the Light Fantastic." But with this first release for a major label, the Anaheim band alights nimbly yet forcefully on a patch of strategically valuable sonic territory that could be the jumping-off point to big things.

The short life story to date on Orange County pop-punk band Handsome Devil would make most people think the group should change its first name to Lucky. A few months after forming last year, the quartet played its first major show with Lit at the opening of the House of Blues in Anaheim. The members of Lit were so impressed that they quickly offered Handsome Devil a deal on their new Dirty Martini record label.

Since some of the plaster cherubs posted above each booth at the Continental Room look upward, they may see Elvis Presley's soul gyrating in heaven. But those who gaze downward into the bar awash in lava-red light spy double Elvi. Owners Carlo Terranova and Sean Francis, both 32, employ two Elvises. It's not that they are connoisseurs of all things Presley. It's just that everything must be just so at the Continental Room -- even if that means keeping an understudy Elvis on the payroll.

Don't let them fool you. Despite their best efforts to prove otherwise, No Doubt is a ska band. And that's OK, according to the 15,000 screaming fans at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Saturday night, the final show of the band's North American tour. During the meteoric success of their 1995 smash "Tragic Kingdom" album, singer Gwen Stefani, guitarist Tom Dumont, bassist Tony Kanal and drummer Adrian Young repeatedly told the world that No Doubt was not a ska band; it was a rock band.

The arena-rock warhorse is a dwindling breed consisting of holdovers from past decades and a few '90s-bred ponies that haven't proved they can carry the load as a big draw over the long haul. Nirvana and Stone Temple Pilots broke down before they even made it to the back stretch. Pearl Jam could run the race--but does it want to? The Dave Matthews Band? Not a bad bet; somebody has to take over the Grateful Dead's jam-band slot. Smashing Pumpkins, Hole and Nine Inch Nails?
