SATURDAY, SEPT. 8 

AMERICA -- See listing for Fri., Sept. 7. Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheatre (Robertson)

BILLY PILGRIM, DEDE VOGT -- Beloved acoustic singer/songwriter duo Billy Pilgrim may take its name from a character in Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five, but its musical inspiration comes from deep inside the creative fire of the pair's own hearts. They perform at 7 p.m. (all ages) and 9:30 p.m. (21-and-up). Opening the late show is the amusing and quick-witted troubadour Dede Vogt, who's also an esteemed regional music producer as well as one third of Cowboy Envy. Eddie's Attic (Nicoll)

MICHAEL BOLTON -- Ahhh. A late summer evening at Chastain, a bottle of wine, a block of distinguished cheese, a true love at your side and, to top it off -- Michael Bolton? Why not just take that cheese cutter to your pinkie? Why not use that corkscrew to pop out your eye? Why not ... do something else than hear Bolton sing his horse-whinny version of soul classics, then force-feed fans his forgettable ballads? Chastain Park Amphitheatre (Allen)

ANDY BROWNE, THE INDICATORS -- Shut Eye Records celebrates the release of its newest compilation, A Low Watt Document, with a performance by three bands that appear on the disc. Former Nightporter Andy Browne and his ever-evolving band debuts some new material tonight. Looking back to his '80s punk roots, Browne manages to stay fresh, unlike many of his peers. The Indicators, led by that burly Binx Bolling in a ballcap, Mike Goldman, continue to break in new material as well. Second Hand Poets open. Lenny's (Smith)

COUNTDOWN QUARTET, DRY COUNTY DRUNKS -- Pairing the North Carolina-based jazz/pop of the Countdown Quartet with the earthy suburban swamp-rock of Atlanta's own Dry County Drunks is a lot like mixing Miles Davis with the Rolling Stones. Which, come to think of it, could be a mighty pleasing combination. Drunks bandleader Chaz Lounge, who has loudly announced his retirement from his long-held post as the Star Bar's principal doorman, will trade his flashlight for a guitar and loudly announce himself from the stage. Star Bar (Nicoll)

DECADENCE -- ARTPARTY 2001 -- There's more party than art tonight at the Contemporary Gallery. And with a musical lineup that boasts both dance music and performance artists on the same bill, it's certainly going to be a night of artful Decadence. A 6,000-square-foot dance floor and three stages feature local and international music, including house diva Amber and the slovenly antics of Heinous Beinfang. Better hide the good art! Also exhibiting party tendencies: Aerial, slowEarth, Lotustarr, Z-Axis, Zero Taiko and MooreEpics. Contemporary Art Center (Smith)

DOMINIC GAUDIOUS -- See Earshot, p. 85. Borders Books and Music/Snellville (Horowitz)

HARVEST MOON BLUESFEST -- Day two of Chip's sixth annual Labor Day weekend music festival gets under way at noon today with performances by Delta Moon (noon), E.G. Knight (1:30 p.m.), the Amazing Rhythm Aces (3:15 p.m.), King Johnson (4:45 p.m.), Carl Weathersby (6:15 p.m.), the Chicago Rhythm & Blues Kings (8 p.m.) and Tinsley Ellis (9:45 p.m.). Billy Joe Shaver, who was scheduled to perform today, has cancelled due to health problems . For more information, call 770-307-2840 or visit www.chipsroadhouse.com. Chip's/Winder (Sarig)

HYDROPHONIC -- The DangerCrew presents HydroPhonic, a poolside hotel party. The roof is retractable, so the party goes on rain or shine. Dip into DJs Starboy, Bethany, Daniel Gresham and J-Luv noon-10 p.m. complete with full bar service with specials, food, massage therapy, lighting and video projections and more. Visit www.dangercrew.net for info and tickets. Sheraton Atlanta/165 Courtland St. (Ware)

JANET JACKSON -- She sings! She dances! She's got a wacky brother! In my pop-culture lifetime, I've seen the youngest Jackson transform from pugnacious, child actor (on '70s sitcom "Good Times") to chart topping, sex-kitten diva, but I still can't hum one of her songs. Still, her show will undoubtedly offer vigorous dance moves, lavish stage sets, sexy outfits and lots of dry ice. A perfect substitute for anyone who missed out on Madonna's latest traveling spectacle. Philips Arena (Robertson)

KIDZ JAM 2001 -- The Georgia Music Hall of Fame in Macon kicks off its "Georgia Music Week" with a two-day festival of family-oriented live music and activities. Percussion workshops, samba parades, kids karaoke and performances by Atlanta's Cowboy Envy and others highlight the daytime proceedings. For more information, call 888-GA-ROCKS. Georgia Music Hall of Fame/Macon (Sarig)

SAFFIRE THE UPPITY BLUESWOMEN -- They're not just the only nationally touring, middle-aged blues feminists around, they're also a reminder that you don't need screaming guitars or husky vocals to convey the feeling. Mixing originals from seven albums along with covers from feisty female blues stars of the past, this trio has been crowd-pleasing for over a decade with sassy sing-alongs that make the women go wild. And sure, guys enjoy it, too. Variety Playhouse (Horowitz)

SUMMER OF LOVE -- Love? We only wish a group as interesting as Love has gotten back together. Instead, it's just whoever's left from Tommy James' Shondells, the Grassroots, Gary Puckett & the Union Gap, the Buckinghams and the Turtles, slogging through their raggedy, played-out oldies for the gazillionth time. HiFi Buys Amphitheatre (Horowitz)

TERRI CASON BENEFIT -- Local acts Van Gogh, Waterproof Feat, 33AD, R.O.C., Beyond the Veil, Fontana Sunset and Front Porch Rockers perform at a benefit for brain-tumor victim Terri Cason. The event is free, but donations are accepted. For more information, call 770-432-8802. Hobgood Park Amphitheater/Woodstock (Sarig)
