CATFIGHT!, DIXIE WITCH -- This will probably be Catfight!'s last show for a while, due to bassist Katy Graves' pregnancy, so don't miss the chance to catch these snarling local punkers as they rock their way to the maternity ward. Opening the show is the viciously hard-hitting Dixie Witch, who brew up a Texas-style rock 'n' roll maelstrom wherever they play. Star Bar (Nicoll)

CLAIBORNE -- See article, p. 75. Beluga Martini Bar (Cook)

ARTHUR DOYLE -- The folk artist of free jazz, Arthur Doyle exhibits many of the same qualities Howard Finster did: determination, ingenuity and an eccentric propensity for self-expression that is uniquely Southern. His raw, emotive style of sax playing and yodeling can only be likened to that of Albert Ayler. "Free Jazz Soul Music," as Doyle himself calls it. Definitely worth bearing witness to. Eyedrum (Khalid)

MARC ENGLISH, NATHAN SHEPPARD -- The leader of the Marc English 800 is an entertaining performer whether alone or with his band. Tonight's show should feature a little of both as English showcases new tunes and dusts off some crowd favorites. Falling somewhere between the best of jangly '80s songsmiths Peter Holsapple and Marshall Crenshaw, the wisecracking English consistently sells out the Red Light, so get there early to get a seat. Opening is singer/songwriter Nathan Sheppard, a local who recently released a CD, Traveling On, through New York's Lost Cat label. Sheppard alternates between acoustic strums and mid-tempo, vaguely prog-ish, sorta-classic rock, tied together by an ample helping of melody. Red Light Cafe (Smith/Sarig)

AN EVENING OF INDIAN CLASSICAL MUSIC -- Local tabla player and teacher Harshad Kanetkar joins local vocalist Saugat Banerjee for a concert sponsored by the Pandit Jasraj School of Music Foundation. Georgia Tech Student Center (Sarig)

BUDDY & JULIE MILLER, STEVE FORBERT -- See Buddy & Julie Miller article, p. 77. The opener is everyone's favorite evergreen boy. The ex-next Dylan whose lone crack at Top 20 stardom, the ringing "Romeo's Tune," is just the tip of a very deep iceberg of heartfelt, peppy, often edgy folk rock. Variety Playhouse (Horowitz)

ITZHAK PERLMAN -- See listing for Thurs., Dec. 10. Symphony Hall (Brown)

STELLAR GOSPEL MUSIC AWARDS -- Who better to help the gospel music community toast itself than bootylicious secular babes Destiny's Child? The sort-of-still-together Fab Three are slated to wiggle their vocal chords (among other things) around traditional spiritual tunes. Luckily they'll be plenty of real gospel powerhouses like hosts Donnie McClurkin, Shirley Caesar and Yolanda Adams to truly steal the show. The event starts at 6:30 p.m., and will be broadcast in syndication through Feb. 10. For more info, call 404-523-6275. Atlanta Civic Center (Noelzine)

THE YUM YUM TREE, GIRL CHRIS -- Texan Andy Gish begins her second year of deceptively sugar-coated mayhem as leader of the Yum Yum Tree, a candy machine of considerable potential, rapidly emerging as one of Atlanta's brightest lights in the foggy pop underground. Girl Chris, with former Insane Jane singer Yellow, belts a boatload of smoky scorchers with a vengeance. Slot Racer opens. The Earl (Smith)
