It's hard not to start dancing when GRUPO FANTASMA, the 11-piece Latin funk orchestra from Austin, Texas, takes the stage. The group's south-of-the-border grooves and high-energy live performances turn any concert into a fiesta. The arsenal of drums, guitars and horns fire up with volcanic force at the Earl Fri., JULY 18, when the group stops in Atlanta in support of its third studio album, Sonidos Gold. Grupo Fantasma's horn section is just back from appearances on "The Jay Leno Show" and at Coachella, where it backed up Prince. Local group Batata Doce opens with a flourishing marriage of Brazilian beats and Appalachian bluegrass finger-pickin'. $10. 9:30 p.m. 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com.
