In a way, it is a sad commentary: A promoter wants to put on an innovative evening of acoustic rock music and performance art to spotlight county talent, and he has to cross the county line to do it. But the Orange County Artists Festival coming up at Bogart's in Long Beach Wednesday night also offers reason to take heart.

Orange County's rock 'n' roll community will literally beat the drum for a cause close to home Sunday when dozens of local musicians team up for nine hours of music at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano. Designed to help the several needy Orange County families at Christmas, the show will run from 3 p.m. until midnight. Diversity seems to be the key, as many of these acts probably wouldn't share a stage on any other evening.

The former leader of one of Los Angeles' prominent "paisley underground" bands and his new femme fatale have made the L.A. record that has drawing the most attention in the alternative/college rock world at large. But Mazzy Star isn't the only Southern California band that's been busy in the studio. Pop Beat's alternative-rock edition focuses today on independent releases by Southern California performers, rated on a scale of one star (poor) to five (a classic).

Sprawling over 10 1/2 hours, with more than 30 separate acts numbering more than 110 performers, the fourth annual Orange County Music For the Needy benefit Sunday may not have been the most time- or manpower-efficient way ever devised to help the poor. Even so, the benefit that also serves as the local rock community's annual Christmas party had its best year as a charitable event.

When live entertainment was halted at Safari Sam's nightclub in September, it left dozens, perhaps hundreds, of local rock bands without a place to perform in Orange County. That's one reason that several groups, including Social Distortion, have volunteered to perform at Sunday's benefit concert for Safari Sam's, which starts at 2:30 p.m. at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano.

True to its name, the Orange County rock band Don't Mean Maybe doesn't equivocate about its sources and inspirations. "The Minutemen, to me, were a great band," said Mark Andrea, Don't Mean Maybe's guitarist and founder. "Seeing them play made me think, 'I want to play.' They had so much life. They were so positive, when so much of the hard-core scene at the time was so negative. The Minutemen's music just made me feel alive."

Kool & the Gang have bopped through the 1980s as the decade's most successful singles band, out-charting all other contenders with 16 Top 40 hits. But the Gang that has made the Top 40 its steady turf is no longer all here. James (J.T.) Taylor, the lead singer whose arrival in 1979 sparked Kool & the Gang's ascendancy, left the group early this year to begin a solo career. The revamped lineup--including three new singers who share lead vocals--makes its U.S.

A dolescent Grows Up . That's probably not what Frank Agnew, former guitarist for the seminal Orange County punk band the Adolescents, would call his autobiography, if or when he writes it. But it paints a pretty good picture of his outlook on life at the grand old age of 23. The younger brother of Adolescents founder and lead singer Rikk Agnew, Frank speaks of his new band--the Tribe--in terms of its greater "maturity."
