Security was heightened Saturday night at the Universal Amphitheater, one day after a man was fatally stabbed and another was wounded during a performance of bands from the 1960s and '70s. Luis C. Romero, 21, of Los Angeles, was killed late Friday and an unidentified 26-year-old man from Whittier was stabbed during the "Super Slow Jam" concert at the theater, said Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Bob Killeen. The show was repeated Saturday, but no problems were reported, Killeen said.

It may have been raining on Tuesday, it may have been springtime in Los Angeles, but Rockette hopefuls were dreaming of a white Christmas in New York. About 75 tanned dancers shimmied and tapped at Screenland Studios II as a pianist pounded out holiday tunes. Their gear ranged from bellybutton rings to black athletic shoes, their training from jazz to hip-hop to tap. But all shared the desire to don the green velvet elf costume of the famed precision dance team's best-known routine.

Blues artist B.B. King is promising "a very special project" for his next album. How else to describe a re cord powered by the blues talents of John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, Etta James, Albert Collins, Ruth Brown, Koko Taylor, Robert Cray and Katie Webster, among others? "I'm a very lucky person," King says of the players and singers that he has gathered for the recording. "I think I'm one of the luckiest persons still alive."
