SATURDAY, MAY 19

KOKO TAYLOR -- Pushing 70 and still the undisputed queen of Chicago blues singers, Taylor's gritty, barnstorming voice remains undiminished by age or by performing her signature "Wang Dang Doodle" nightly for the past 35 years. Her band of young guns pushes furious blues-rock a little too earnestly, but nobody upstages the fiery Taylor. She's the standard against which every other female blues belter is measured. Earthlink Live (Horowitz)

RICHARD THOMPSON, AMY CORREIA -- The legendary Brit folk-rocker is solo this time, which means you get more of his sardonic, biting wit between songs, plucked from a prolific and astonishingly consistent three-plus decade career. Many are on his recent latter-day compilation, but Thompson is just as likely to throw in a Fairport Convention chestnut or a brand new tune. Regardless, he's an astounding guitarist, classy songwriter and always entertaining. Amy Correia is like Macy Gray as a skinny white girl with an acoustic guitar and a penchant for nostalgic lyrics. Variety Playhouse (Horowitz/Butler)

ULTIMATE OLDIES CONCERT -- From Fox 97, the radio station that promises "good times and great oldies," comes this 12th annual nostalgia fest. With the exception of Wilson Pickett, this year's acts front generic backing band that reproduce former hits. Monkees drummer Micky Dolenz and Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits appear, as do the Grass Roots and Felix Cavaliere's Rascals. Al Jardine of the Beach Boys brings his "friends and family" band, including his sons and Carnie and Wendy Wilson of Wilson Phillips. It's like Music Midtown, but without the profanity, nudity or current one-hit wonders. Georgia Dome (Smith)
