Friday, Jan. 18 

CLOCKED IN -- See Earshot, p. 81. Murphy Ave. Warehouses (Cook)

COLLEGE NIGHT UNPLUGGED -- Marathon frontman Chuck Carrier and modern-rockers Another Man Down go acoustic, while Kodac Harrison goes completely instrument-less (as he reads poetry), during the High's biannual college night. 7 p.m.; admission and access to the art is free with student ID. High Museum (Sarig)

COUNTDOWN QUARTET, BLUEJAYS -- The six-man "Quartet" combines pop, jazz and lounge music influences, sounding like a younger, hipper version of War merged with Southside Johnny's Asbury Jukes, or a more rootsy Grand Torino. The Bluejays, a bourbon-smooth rockabilly combo, recently added two ace players to their lineup: Henry Bruns (the Vidalias) on pedal steel and Jeff Adams (the Lizardmen) on guitar. Star Bar (Nicoll)

FELIX DA HOUSECAT -- See Record Reviews, p. 87. eleven50 (Ware)

HOLY HIP-HOP MUSIC AWARDS -- Hip-hop is such a versatile creature. One minute it's glorifying the almighty artist, and another it's rooting for The Man Upstairs. The folks behind the Christian rap radio show that bears this award show's name are paying homage to artists who do the latter. Men of the cloth are also being lauded, so don't be too surprised to see Bishop Eddie Long taking the stage with the MCs. There's an artist showcase Thursday night, and all events are open to the public. EarthLink Live (Noelzine)

HUSKY, KNAMIPROKO, ALISON KENDRA HUNT -- Former DQE third-wheel Brian Montero joins drummer Ben Arnold in a relatively new project they're calling Husky. Formerly a full quartet leaning toward psychedelic rock, the duo continues on a droning minimalist path but relies more heavily on pre-programmed loops to fill the gaps. They're joined by multimedia electronic/live hybrid quartet Knamiproko and singer/songwriter Alison Kendra Hunt for an adventurous triple bill. The Earl (Sarig)

JENNIFER NETTLES BAND -- Tonight is the second part of two former Soul Miners Daughters' back-to-back stand at Eddie's. Still backed by several SMD musicians, Nettles has found a wider following than her former bandmate, Cory Jones. Her shows sell out the Variety Playhouse regularly, and capacity crowds fill the Attic to witness the vocal acrobatics and soulful Southern steam of her more intimate shows. Daniel Lee opens. Eddie's Attic (Smith)

A KING CELEBRATION -- Decatur-born operatic soprano Indra Thomas joins the ASO (led by guest conductor Andre Raphel Smith) and the glee clubs from Spelman and Morehouse colleges for this 10th annual musical celebration in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Thomas performs Samuel Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915. Other works on the program include Michael Abel's Dance for Martin's Dream, Mario Abril's Migrations (narrated by NPR's Korva Coleman) and Roland Carter's Hold Fast to Dreams, based on Langston Hughes' poems. NPR broadcasts the concert nationally Mon., Jan. 21; it can be heard locally at 9 a.m. on 88.1 FM. International Chapel/Morehouse (Sarig)
