Short List: Upcoming 

Gypsy Jambalaya, Bob Zellner and more

January 22 Thursday

BOB ZELLNER is not a typical Civil Rights Movement veteran. Born the white son of a Klansman from Alabama, Zellner rejected his upbringing and dedicated his life to social justice. Zellner's life story is an inspiring tale of dedicated struggle in a time of horrific oppression. With his co-author Constance Curry, he reads from his memoir, The Wrong Side of Murder Creek: A White Southerner in the Freedom Movement. $5-$10. 6 p.m. Margaret Mitchell House & Museum, 990 Peachtree St. 404-249-7015. www.gwtw.org.

January 23 Friday

Providence, R.I., post-hardcore provocateurs LES SAVY FAV return in support of Let's Stay Friends, the group's first studio album in more than six years. The new album finds LSF melding its dark and angular hybrid of art pop and dramatic weirdness with a palette of horns, dub soundscapes and lavish arrangements that push the group to new heights of ability while underscoring its awkward idiosyncrasies. Athens psych-punk trio Twin Tigers open the show. $17-$20. 9 p.m. The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com. (Chad Radford)

January 23 Friday

Arranged by the Danish American Chamber of Commerce with support from the Danish Film Institute, the festival features five critically acclaimed Danish films, including The Monastery, winner of the Danish Critics Prize for a documentary film, and Just Like Home.

January 24 Saturday

Sharing the stage and mixing old-school Creole with new-school Cajun music is Grammy-nominated Watson (XXX) and his Zydeco band. $32-$59. 8 p.m. Rialto Center for the Arts, 80 Forsyth St. 404-413-9849. www.rialtocenter.org.
