SWING'S KINGS: THOSE incomparable kings of swing, THE ROYAL CROWN REVUE, will headline tomorrow night's DIS-ORIENTATION PARTY at the University of Newcastle. Drawn from an unlikely mix of Southern Californian punk, rockabilly and New York street corner doo-wop, the Royal Crown Revue formed in 1989, wedged uncomfortably between 'grunge bands in the north and hair bands to the south'. The group led a swing revival in the face of the grunge explosion, which swept the US in 1994 after the group performed the song HEY PACHUCO in the JIM CARREY film THE MASK. LEG UP: PAY television music station CHANNEL V has thrown out an invitation for unsigned bands from Australia and New Zealand to get a 'LEG UP'. The 'leg up' is a chance to become one of 100 bands promoted on the station's website and on air. The 'hottest new unsigned act' will get to showcase itself next year at the prestigious CMJ MUSIC MARATHON in New York, and at the OFFSHORE FESTIVAL in Victoria in 2001. The top 100 entries will be selected by a team of music industry types, and a list will be published online from December 12. From there CHANNEL V viewers will narrow the list down to the Top 10 through online feedback at www.channelv.com.au. Entry forms are available at the Channel V website.

LATIN DANCE: LATIN American five-piece band RHUMBALAMA will perform a 'batacuda' outside the View Factory Cafe, in Scott St, this Sunday. The group will use the Brazilian form of street drumming to attract attention to the action taking place inside. Using guitar, bass and percussion, Rhumbalama performs high-energy dance music from Brazil, Uruguay, Cuba and Puerto Rico. Rhumbalama is led by guitarist EDWARD RODIGUEZ who has penned several Latin and soul influenced originals. The music begins at 3pm and rolls until 6pm.
