DIRTY PRETTY (OCT. 29-NOV. 1)

Atlanta's Zoetic Dance Ensemble is dedicated to sharing the spirit of dance and innovating with choreography. Its fall show for 7 Stages, dirty pretty, addresses issues of beauty and body image and their relationships to technology and contemporary society. $10-$15. Preview: Wed., 6:30 p.m. Performance: Thurs.-Sat., 8 p.m. 1105 Euclid Ave. 404-523-7647. www.7stages.org.

DEERHUNTER, PYLON, JAY REATARD (OCT. 31)

Atlanta's much-ballyhooed, art-damaged noise-pop foursome Deerhunter plays its first show of the year in Atlanta's city limits, celebrating the release of the group's third full-length, Microcastle. Athens' long-standing art-punk new wavers Pylon reunite for another turn. Jay Reatard also performs a set of his noisy, confrontational and spun-out racket. $16-$18. 8 p.m. Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave. 404-524-7354. www.variety-playhouse.com.

ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO (OCT. 31)

After a depressing high school reunion, longtime friends Zack and Miri (Seth Rogen and W.'s Elizabeth Banks) decide that the amateur pornography business might offer the solution to their financial problems. Writer/director Kevin Smith's buzzed-about script has already raised eyebrows at the MPAA ratings board for its raunchy dialogue. The cast includes actual former porn star Traci Lords, "The Office's" Craig Robinson and Smith's frequent co-stars, Jason Mewes and Jeff Anderson. Here's hoping that Zack and Miri Make a Porno lives up to the hype, because Smith's last film, Clerks II, totally sucked.

51
HAWKS HOME OPENER (NOV. 1)

The Hawks ended their '07 season on an upbeat note by taking the eventual-champion Celtics to seven games in the playoffs. But they followed up with a somewhat disappointing summer, when they lost star Josh Childress to the Euro League and failed to make any significant off-season acquisitions. The Hawks go head-to-head with the Philadelphia 76ers to start the year off in a game that features two of the most athletic squads in the league. Prices vary. 7 p.m. Philips Arena, 1 Philips Drive. 1-866-715-1500. www.nba.com/hawks.

52
OUT ON FILM (NOV. 6-9)

Where's the bartender? Atlanta's annual gay film festival turns 21 this year. To celebrate, Out on Film is throwing its trademark party – a three-day shindig with good-looking LGBT film buffs from all over the city, independent filmmakers from all over the country, and, of course, dozens of fabulous screenings. Prices, times and locations vary. www.outonfilm.com.

53
A QUANTUM OF SOLACE (OPENS NOV. 7)

With Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince rescheduled for next summer, the latest James Bond film promises to be the season's biggest and most anticipated film. In this direct follow-up to the spy-franchise "reboot" Casino Royale, new Bond Daniel Craig returns to avenge the death of his prior love interest by tracking down the evil organization that killed her. Gemma Arterton and Olga Kurylenko play new Bond girls, French actor Mathieu Amalric (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly) provides the villainy, and Marc Foster (The Kite Runner, Monster's Ball) directs. The enigmatic title comes from a short story by Bond creator Ian Fleming.

54
MJCCA BOOK FESTIVAL (NOV. 8-22)

For 17 years now, the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta has brought great literature to Atlanta's Jewish community. This year the 15-day festival presents books from big names such as Tony Curtis and Michael Ian Black, as well as many other national and local authors. Times vary. MJCCA Zaban Park, 5342 Tilly Mill Road. 678-812-4005. www.atlantajcc.org.

55
TINA TURNER (NOV. 9)

She's as famous for her roaring vocals as she is for her gorgeous gams and rocky relationship with Ike Turner. Four decades into her career and nearly seven decades into her life, Tina Turner rolls into Atlanta on her first official tour since 2000. $59.50-$152. 7 p.m. Philips Arena, 1 Philips Drive. 404-878-3000. www.ticketmaster.com.

56
AFTERNOON IN THE COUNTRY (NOV. 9)

The Dames have done it again, rounding up a smorgasbord of Atlanta's top chefs and favorite restaurants to participate in the eighth annual Afternoon in the Country. Featured eateries include Home, Parish, Shaun's, ONE. Midtown Kitchen, the Flying Biscuit Café, Spice Market, Fourth & Swift and City Grill (just to name a ... phew!). As expected, Les Dames d'Escoffier International encourages progressive cooking for women devoted to the culinary arts, and with outstanding talent across the board, this outdoor event will be no exception. $35-$95. 1 p.m. Serenbe Farms, 10950 Hutcheson Ferry Road, Palmetto. 770-463-2610. www.ldei.org.
