" For the first time in the U.S., Elfman is to present his scores for Burton's films in an orchestral concert performance, scheduled appropriately enough for Halloween night at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles.

The crowd that waited under the neon red glow of the Ace Hotel's "Jesus Saves" sign came to see the experimental rock band Spiritualized. But as they filed into the Theatre at Ace, they became part of a different sort of resurrection. Nestled in the 1920s-era building on Broadway that once housed Gene Scott's televangelism empire, the Theatre at Ace's Friday night opening was part of a rebirth for downtown Los Angeles' music scene. Live music was once a focal point of the area's revival.

MUSIC Some of us love the lusty, batty R. Kelly whose come-ons could make Prince blush. But his latest album, "Love Letter," isn't that record. Instead, it's steeped in vintage Stax and Motown. "When a Woman Loves" gracefully nods to Otis Redding's "I've Got Dreams to Remember" while giving Kells a smoky, tempered backdrop to tap decades of undeserving-man ballads. Wait for the pleading a cappella bridge, which goes on three times as long as it needs to — and it scorches. Nokia Theatre, 777 Chick Hearn Court, L.A. 7 p.m. Sat.-Sun.
