Dawn "the Faun" McCarthy, who's best-known as the voice behind mystical folk outfit FAUN FABLES, brings it back home with her latest EP, A Table Forgotten, Tues., AUG. 19. The darkly whimsical songstress turns her gaze away from the magic forest to offer a fairy-tale trip into the kitchen, where she cooks up ethereal atmospheres that are all about cake and how kitchen etiquette and philosophy have evolved from pagan days to modern times. $10. 9 p.m. The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Road. 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com.
