Another gig, another miracle. These heady days when their team is in the final four every year, it's hard for people to remember how it was before the Great Hoosier arrived to recapture the lost glory. These days, the Great Hoosier isn't IU Coach Bob Knight, it's Indiana Pacer Coach Larry Brown. Of course, Brown is a native New Yorker who has been a Californian (twice), a Texan, a Kansan and a few others.

Larry Love is probably the first singer in the history of the record business to admit he owes his success to a New Jersey mobster. No, we're not talking about a belated confession about the payola and mob control associated with the early days of rock. Love is the leader of A3, a colorful techno-country band from Britain with outrageously theatrical pop-rock sensibilities. And the mobster is Tony Soprano.

An electric boogie band mixing ambient, airy atmospherics with earthy gospel and country blues? A British group fronted by an "evangelist" calling himself the Very Rev. Dr. D. Wayne Love of the First Presleyterian Church of Elvis the Divine? These are the distinguishing characteristics of A3, which brought its unusual dance club rave meets back-porch blues to Frequency at the Hollywood Athletic Club on Friday.

With eight musicians sporting pseudonyms and an array of Western wear, spiffy suits, shades and hats, British techno-blues act A3 looked like punk gangsters holding a revival meeting at the Roxy on Saturday. The presentation was almost campy, especially because the band kicked off with its most recognizable number, the electro-funky "Woke Up This Morning," a.k.a. the theme for HBO's Mafia drama "The Sopranos." Still, singer Rob Spragg (a.k.a.

One day recently, Larry Love pointed to a box of numbers in his tip sheet, Lotto Edge, and said in a voice that was three-fourths conviction and one-fourth hope, "These numbers just haven't been hitting. They have to start coming up." Two days later, Love was ecstatic. Five of the six numbers drawn that week in the state's Lotto 6/49 game, and the bonus number as well, had appeared on his "25 Most Probable" list. Frank Markovic was not impressed. In fact, he said Larry Love is misleading people.

"Larry Crowne" is an inside-out movie, acceptable around the edges but hollow and shockingly unconvincing at its core. When that core is two of the biggest movie stars around — Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts — it's an especially dispiriting situation. Hanks and Roberts topline this adult romantic comedy about supposedly real people, the kind of movie that would be welcome were it not doomed by its tone of hopelessly contrived Hollywood sincerity. Hanks, who also directed and co-wrote with Nia Vardalos (responsible for the cloying "My Big Fat Greek Wedding")

A series of programming problems brought on by the introduction of keno has forced the delay of payments to big winners of all California Lottery computer games and caused terminals to reject some winning tickets, lottery officials said Monday. They said some of the problems stem from a programming error that showed up Nov. 17 and initially required a 10-hour shutdown of ticket sales for keno, a fast-action game of chance that was made popular in the Nevada casinos.

Keno, the new casino-style game of chance that state officials had hoped would revitalize stagnant lottery sales, has neither hit the jackpot with gamblers nor produced the sharp revenue gains expected. As a result of the game's lackluster performance, overall California Lottery sales are well below projections, raising concerns that the agency may either have to cut back severely on expenditures or risk overspending its budget.

What a difference a tutu makes. It's halfway through Week Two of the Anaheim Ballet School's summer intensive training program and students are rehearsing a variation from "Raymonda." In one section, there's a tricky lift; the girls sit perched on a partner's shoulder. It's a move made more difficult because of their costumes--the short stiff skirts obstruct the boys' vision.
