In the song "Axl Rose Is Love," Gretchen Seager of the Los Angeles rock band Mary's Danish goes after Guns N' Roses' singer the way Thelma and Louise take on a sexist trucker. Incensed by the hotheaded Rose's use of racial and sexual invectives in his song "One in a Million," Seager takes aim at the rocker on the new Mary's Danish album, "Circa": Your time will come You will be done On earth as in Hell What goes around comes around. . . . So Seager's easy to peg, right?

The Huntington Beach Art Center will open its store and gallery May 20. The Art Center store will offer books, artist-made books and "zines," similar to magazines or comic books that specialize in a single theme. Artist-made books combine original visuals and writing. The gallery will spotlight Southern California artists. The first exhibit will feature artist Carrie Ungerman's Scribbles and Doodles, a wall display of drawings like those typically found on scratch pads.

Mary's Danish, a hot new band from Los Angeles whose music is a catchy hybrid of riveting rock 'n' roll and sweltering funk, will perform Sunday night at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach. The group is led by lead singer-songwriters Gretchen Seager and Julie Ritter, who met while attending University of California, Berkeley, in the late 1980s, and boasts a feisty rhythm section propelled by drummer James Bradley Jr., who has worked on the road with Anita Baker and Jeffrey Osborne.

SMALL FACES: Fresh off his hit with Sting, Puff Daddy is working on another collaboration with a classic-rocker. He's teaming with Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page for a track for the "Godzilla" soundtrack that will incorporate elements of the Zep chestnut "Kashmir." . . .

There's a soundtrack album out now for "Beverly Hills, 90210," laughably full of light R&B. But halfway-hep Westside high schoolers are a lot more likely to be listening to Mary's Danish, making the Fairfax High gym a demographically correct site for the L.A. band's appearance on Saturday. And as taste in bands goes, the kids are all right--though the ever-promising sextet still hasn't quite yet graduated to a level of purpose that might command equal loyalty among the post-collegiate.

Mary's Danish did it backwards: It's a band's debut album that's supposed to carry a lifetime of experiences and insights, leaving nothing for the follow-up.

In opening a sold-out four-night stand at the Troubadour on Sunday night, the celebrated local band Mary's Danish didn't do Jimi Hendrix's "Foxey Lady," formerly a staple of its live set and an inclusion on both its two latest records. Instead, front-women Julie Ritter and Gretchen Seager found an even funnier gender-ignorant cover choice to wrap up with: the Spencer Davis Group's "I'm a Man." Which they aren't, of course--not even in figurative rock 'n' roll spirit.
