MONDAY, OCT 8 

BARELY PINK -- High-calorie musical comfort food, Barely Pink goes together with pop-rock like a twelve-ouncer of Coca-Cola and Life cereal's ill-fated child star, Mikey. Soft harmonies and campy licks are underscored by a sense of pop sincerity. Terminally upbeat, listen to this music in a bad mood and it will either cheer you up or send you driving off a steep bluff. Smith's Olde Bar (Hutchinson)

JACK POTENTIAL -- Heavy but uncluttered like an obese neat-freak, Jack Potential pours concrete riffs over rebar beats, economically constructing a solid post-punk monument. A little too well-mannered for punk rowdies, and a little too meaningful for mainstream modern rock, the band's large sound nevertheless stubbornly refuses to fall between musical cracks. MJQ Concourse (Hutchinson)

JANE'S ADDICTION -- Jane's Addiction, the band that did more to mainstream alternative music in the early '90s than almost any other (except, perhaps, Nirvana), is back together with original members Perry Farrell, Stephen Perkins and Dave Navarro on board for the Jubilee Tour. Porno for Pyro's Martyn LeNoble fills in for Eric Avery, who according to official sources, "chose not to revisit that part of his life." Farrell and company are hoping that is the minority opinion among aging art-metal freaks. With new solo records by Farrell and Navarro on the shelves, who knows what might end up in the song list alongside "Mountain Song," "Jane Says" and "Been Caught Stealing." Openers are Afro-funk-pop star Femi Kuti, son of Fela Kuti, and Live, the third generation bastard sons of Jane's Addiction and R.E.M., only without the charm, style or songs. Phillip's Arena (Trammell)

SYNCHILLA, TWO PLY SHAMAN -- Athens-based Synchilla coughs up a hairball of tribal and found percussion, strings, saxophone and other mystery sounds. From parts unknown, Two Ply Shaman conjures up an imaginary Sci-Fi horror soundtrack with analog keyboards. Masks could be involved. Eyedrum (Khalid)
