Los Lobos' presentation has always been on the modest, unassuming side, especially given the group's far-from-modest abilities and achievements. So "Just Another Band From East L.A." is an in-character title for the two-disc retrospective album of Los Lobos' career that is due out in late August or early September.

The Coach House, the leading club in Orange County for touring pop talent, will try to build an audience for home-grown music with twice-monthly bills featuring local rock groups. The first show, Dec. 23, will feature two bands from Orange County, Wood and Smoke and Imagining Yellow Suns, along with a Los Angeles group, One Day. "We'll give 'em decent days and keep the ticket prices down and see if we can make it work," said Ken Phebus, the Coach House's booking agent.

For 20 years now, progressive rock has been about as valuable to pop's store of creative energy as a tapped-out uranium mine. Sure, there was some high-grade ore shipped from England during the heyday of the late '60s and early '70s, when Yes, Genesis, Gentle Giant, E.L.P., E.L.O. and King Crimson were working a temporarily rich vein in which rock's drive merged with classical music's grand scale and virtuosity.

The Supersuckers were a bunch of desert rats out of Arizona who moved to Seattle, where the action was in the early 1990s. There, they recorded a bunch of albums, and now are bringing their tour to the Ventura Theatre on Friday in a thinly veiled attempt to sell a few copies of their new album, "The Evil Powers of Rock 'N' Roll." Also on the bill are Fluf and the Furious IV.
