ALBERT MCNEIL JUBILEE SINGERS -- Since 1968, this 15-member choral group has performed spirituals and other African-American and Caribbean music. Their Spivey program includes selections from Porgy & Bess, as well as work by current black composers. Spivey Hall (Sarig)
BOLLYWOOD -- Local video artist Frank "The Stimulator" Lopez presents a trip through Bombay's prodigious and stylized cinema with his video and projection mix, accompanied by the ethno-techno sounds of Asian Massive DJ Shaarab and NAV. Lopez also screens the music videos he's done for popular local trip-hop/groove act pH Balance, who also perform live. Echo Lounge (Sarig)
STEVEN CRIST -- Pianist Steven Crist takes on the many moods of Bach, as experienced by the composer and his artistic descendants. Featured in this recital are selections from monumental works such as the Well-Tempered Clavier, along with Bach-inspired musical reflections by composers spanning the generations, from Mozart to Dave Brubeck. Performing Arts Studio/Emory (Brown)
DROMEDARY, CLAIRE AND BAIN'S MAPLE YUM-YUM, DIANA OBSCURA -- Dromedary uses everything from the dulcimer to the charango to combine reels, klezmer, South American folk songs and bluegrass in the same sitting. Athens' Claire and Bain use a singing saw and a banjo to offer early jazz/Americana roots flavors. Diana Obscura teams with singer Renee Nelson (American Dream) and guitarist Steve Libbey (Robotic Stormcloud) for a heavenly acoustic/classical set. Star Bar (Nicoll)
GLENN PHILLIPS BAND -- A 40-year survivor of the often-fickle Atlanta music scene, Phillips continues to produce some of the most challenging and experimental music around. Zappa-esque in his uncompromising diversity and skillful mastery of the guitar, Phillips' psychedelic six-string work is not to be missed. Red Light Cafe (Smith)
MICHELLE MALONE -- Atlanta's indie-feminist pop songwriter performs at the opening of Thinly Veiled Misogyny, a mixed-media exhibit by artist Diane Hause that deals with the oppression of women under the Taliban and other regimes. 3Ten Haustudio/310 Peters St. (Sarig)
PAPER LIONS -- No, it's not George Plimpton's newest adventure -- it's top-secret music from ex-Some Soviet Station members and other familiar faces. Loud and aggressive, with scratchy melodic tangents. The icy sheets of rain will fall tonight as harvesters reclaim their ravaged farmland in torn denim overalls. Go, and you'll see what we mean. The Earl (Smith)
SLAUGHTER & THE DOGS -- See Record Reviews, p. 101. Masquerade (Nicoll)
TONOHONEY -- Pulling together elements of sultry jazz, sleepy blues and ass-clinching jam rock, local act Tonohoney creates a competent rock product. While occasionally prone to lapses into lazy, groove-oriented convention, the band switches up its formula enough to keep things interesting. Northside Tavern (Hutchinson)
Nashville has more dive bars than ATL now that sucks. tbh i think that new…
