Short List 

Sick Puppies, Tom Collins and more

August 19 Wednesday

The Australian takeover continues when Sydney's alternative rockers SICK PUPPIES return to Atlanta. The group's been touring continuously since it reached stardom with 2006's heart-wrenching hit "All the Same," and it just released a third album, Tri-Polar, in July. Two of the songs have been used for commercial reasons, including "You're Going Down" for WWE's "Extreme Rules" and "Street Fighter (War)" for the video game Street Fighter IV. Hurt, Veer Union and Adelitas Way open. $13.50-$15. 8 p.m. The Loft, 1374 W. Peachtree St. 404-885-1365. www.theloftatl.com. (Azia Squire)

August 21 Friday

It's been about five years since local power-rock trio the TOM COLLINS stood on stage together. This reunion show finds vocalist/guitar player Fran Capitanelli, drummer Kyle Spence (also of Harvey Milk), and bassist Craig McQuiston playing a comprehensive set of Zepplinesque grooves from their three-album career. Loose slides and cocksure rhythms galore find depth in the Tom Collins' deep cuts. Local rockers Ponderosa and Chris Unck & the Black Roses open. $8. 9 p.m. The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com. (Chad Radford)
