MUSIC Live up to the instrumental reputation of bassist-composer Charles Mingus? There's a tall order for any group.

Royce Hall, UCLA. 8 p.m. Fri. $20 to $60. http://www.uclalive.org

There may be no more dapper ensemble than Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester. The combo drinks deep from flapper-era jazz, Weimar Berlin and Irving Berlin alike for a sound both preserved in amber and entirely entrancing. The combo also has a cracking sense of humor — the banter is as witty as the arrangements. Royce Hall, UCLA. 8 p.m. Thu. $25 to $80. http://www.uclalive.org.

If there is a hint of mystery to UCLA's basketball opener against Drexel on Friday night, that's to be expected. "Openers are always scary," Coach Steve Alford said. "It's scary for both sides because you truly don't have an identity yet. " While the No. 22 Bruins have a new coach and a relatively young roster, Drexel arrives at Pauley Pavilion with an expected starting lineup that features a sixth-year senior, two normal seniors and two juniors. The Dragons went 13-18 last season and have not reached the NCAA Tournament in any of Coach Bruiser Flint's 12 years at the Philadelphia school.
