SATURDAY, NOV 10 

ASO CHORUS -- See listing for Thurs., Nov. 8. Symphony Hall (Brown)

BURNING AIRLINES -- More lugubrious and openly melodic than Jawbox, J Robbins' new band continues to forge a distinct identity with the departure of bassist Bill Barbot. Absent his decade-long bandmate, Robbins needed to develop a new rapport with replacement Mike Harbin, whose playing favors longer melodic figures than Barbot's punchy, guitar-influenced playing. It's apparent live, though, that Robbins and Harbin now bring the same feral intensity and air-tight, quick cornering bottom-end one expects from a Robbins-led outfit. Echo Lounge (Parker)

CROSSCURRENTS OF THE BLUES -- Atlanta's blues community pitches in to help the family of Liz Melendez, whose father passed away Oct. 12. Scheduled to appear: Slim Fatz, Donna Hopkins, the Hybrids, Bones, Motor City Josh, Chicago Joe Jones, Cathy Carlisle, Nick Longo, Blind Slim, Rich Ianucci, Larry Griffith, Eric Austin and many others. The music starts at 2 p.m. and runs until 2:30 a.m. Darwin's (Powell)

DIRTY DOZEN BRASS BAND -- The inescapable soul of freewheeling New Orleans has always informed the jazz-via-brass-band party music of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, who've been playing together for more than 20 years now. Though many believe that the party stopped somewhere after their first few albums, when the band lost its way with some spontaneity-free offerings, the DDBB's latest, Buck Jump, signals a long-awaited return to form. Roxy (R. Kelly)

HARLOW, BORN TO PLEASE -- The darlings of VH1's "Bands on the Run" are touring again and making another Atlanta stop. Harlow offer a good dose of prefab faux-metal and a lot of posturing, still they manage to offer a smile and wink, letting you know they're still in control. Born To Please are the real deal of emotional release. Their live shows never fail to please. The Earl (Smith)

LARRY -- The weakness in many of the younger jam bands that themselves grew up listening to veterans Phish and Widespread Panic is that they focus primarily on the extended loose improvisations of the originals, while neglecting the subtle lyrical and melodic nuance. Austin, Texas' Larry is a band that seems on the right track to working the total package. Jake's Roadhouse (Hutchinson)

MIKE KELLY TRIO, CHARLES DAVIS -- See listing for Thurs., Nov. 8. Churchill Grounds (Powell)

BIJAN MORTAZAVI -- Mortazavi, an Iranian-born violinist and multi-instrumentalist now based in Los Angeles, performs from his repertoire of contemporary, international and Persian classical-flavored songs. Rialto Center (Sarig)

O.A.R. -- It stands for Of A Revolution. What started out as a high-school garage band and continued on from the dorms at Ohio State has blossomed into the epitome of a grassroots success story. Concerts are digitally recorded and traded by fans coast to coast, while the band's third CD, the independently released Risen, has sold more than 30,000 copies. Tabernacle (Clifford)

PROGPOWER USA 2.0 FESTIVAL -- See listing for Fri., Nov. 9. EarthLink Live (Williams)

TIM REYNOLDS -- Talented guitarist Reynolds is finally getting his due recognition, thanks in great part to the exposure from his collaborations, recordings and tours with the Dave Matthews Band, most notably the two-CD set Live at Luther College. Variety Playhouse (Powell)

VIRGINIA RODRIGUES -- Brazil's answer to Cesaria Evora makes a welcome appearance in support of Nos, her second Hannibal release. Her interpretations of folk spirituals are subdued, melancholic and magnificent. A former beautician and singer in church choirs, Rodrigues was encouraged to pursue a career by Caetano Veloso, who has guided her ever since. Spivey Hall (Madigan)

SCOTT CARPENTER AND THE REAL MCCOYS, MARINERS -- An exciting night of Fender-bending twang is in store when country-rockin' lunatic Scott Carpenter, who could be a poster child for Telecaster abuse, shares the stage with instrumental surf-rockers the Mariners, who come armed with a new ice-blue Jaguar and riptides of reverb. The youthful Carpenter's sound evokes Creedance Clearwater, Webb Wilder and Jason & the Scorchers. The Mariners, who were founded in 1964, pay tribute to everyone from Dick Dale to the Go-Go's. Star Bar (Nicoll)

STEWART & WINFIELD, BRADLEY COLE SMITH -- Singer-songwriter Bradley Cole Smith began his career as lead singer/guitarist for Atlanta band Doublewide, which also included Winfield Smith and Stewart Marshall of Savannah's Stewart & Winfield. Bradley Cole Smith sings country-tinged roots rock with a voice eerily reminiscent of Lowell George. S&W sing roots rock with a hint of country, and sound like the Marshall Tucker Band. Smiths Olde Bar (Clifford)
