Expect Covina singer-songwriter Rick Shea to get a little spooky during his performance tonight in Anaheim, but it's not because he's trying to cater to the pre-Halloween spirit. Shea would likely do the same around Valentine's Day. "I've always been intrigued by a good ghost story," Shea, 48, says, by way of explaining "Magdalena," one of 13 richly evocative tales from his latest album, "Sawbones," that he'll be drawing from tonight.

Christopher Knight spells it out, and you better get used to it ("Why Is Congress After NEA? It's Simple," Calendar, Feb. 27). The Republican revolution was "swept" into office by a well-organized coalition of conservative Christians and a wave of hysterical talk-radio fans. No one is pointing out, however, that fewer than 40% of voting-age citizens went to the polls in the last election (and the "landslide" was only a portion of that). This revolution clearly has no mandate. If a few of us speak up we could stop these politically motivated payoffs.

Sometimes a critic goes to a show and wishes the performers were somewhere else. It was like that with the Jann Browne/Rick Shea double bill Wednesday night at the Long Beach Museum of Art.

The rising tide of country music does not lift all boots. Rick Shea's lizard-skin pair remains planted on the sawdust-covered bottom rung of the Southern California bar circuit, where he has scraped for a living for almost 15 years.

It's a Saturday night at Viva Fresh, an ivy-festooned Mexican restaurant, paces west of Burbank's Equestrian Center, and the room is alive with bustling waiters and conversation. Then, Rick Shea and his trio, The Losin' End, set up their amps and begin to play. "An empty bottle, a broken heart, and you're still on my mind," sings Shea, in a voice rich with restrained heartache, backing up the George Jones chestnut with electric guitar licks that eloquently echo honky-tonk's Golden Age.

1. (Tie) Mark Cutler, "Mark Cutler & Useful Things" (Potter's Field Records, P.O. Box 521, Astor Station, Boston, MA 02123) and Mark Davis, "You Came Screaming" (Cutlet Records, 1101 Douglas St., Los Angeles, CA 90026). The two albums I couldn't stop listening to in '95 were do-it-yourself releases. Cutler, former front man of Boston's Raindogs, works in a classic Dylan/Petty mode; there's something fearsomely wild in his grim visions of frustration and loss.
