By dint of a bicycle-powered blender, Charis Circle and Sopo Bike Co-op come together for URBAN SUSTAINABILITY: BICYCLE POWER!, where the most underrated source of energy – the human – will finally get a chance to be harnessed for the strict purpose of biped consumption. Topics of discussion will meander from experimentation to elucidation as moderators analyze the arduous journey to greener, off-the-grid living. Free. 7-8:30 p.m. Charis Books & More, 1189 Euclid Ave. 404-524-0304. www.charisbooksandmore.com. (Sean Dettman)
Bernard Matussière, who looks like a Parisian version of David Lynch, is a photographer whose work has historically been fashion-centric, finely adroit or a combination of both. CARTE BLANCHE, his newest gallery show, relies heavily on the stark contrast of black-and-white imagery, a medium he uses to complement the candid with the sentimental and the weird with the uncomfortably human. Through Jan. 30. Free. Opening reception, 6-9 p.m.; Tues.-Fri., noon-6 p.m.; Sat., noon-5 p.m. Wm Turner Gallery, 112 Krog St., Suite 9. 404-577-4500. www.wmturnergallery.com. (Sean Dettman)
California ska-punk-rock band FISHBONE brings a chill surfing vibe to Atlanta for a joint appearance with local band HEAVY MOJO. Easy-going, sunny and fun are three words that describe Fishbone's music. The group's been making fusion music since 1979 that extends beyond keyboards and drums to saxophone, trombone and the trumpet. Heavy Mojo fuses hip-hop and alternative rock together rather nicely. Natives of the New Dawn and B-Liminal also perform. $17. 9 p.m. The Loft, 1374 W. Peachtree St. 404-885-1365. www.theloftatl.com. (Samantha Mach)
Up-and-comer deathcore quintet ALL SHALL PERISH is the metal band set to capture the crowd's interest at this show, more so than headliner Job for a Cowboy. With face-melting guitar riffs and metal vocals that you actually can decipher, All Shall Perish avoids generic metal clichés, coming off reminiscent of Lamb of God. Hate Eternal, Animosity and Annotations of an Autopsy also perform. $14. 6:30 p.m. Masquerade, 695 North Ave. 404-577-8178. www.masq.com. (Samantha Mach)
