Although usually tagged as a neo-soul singer, Philadelphia native MUSIQ SOULCHILD has never been an artist to confine himself to one musical niche; he fuses jazz, soul, hip-hop, funk and R&B on urban-radio hits such as 2000's "Love" and 2002's "Halfcrazy." Appropriately enough, Musiq continues his legacy of musical variety in a city renowned for its aural and cultural diversity when he performs in support of his latest Atlantic Records release, Onmyradio. $25. 8:30 p.m. Center Stage Atlanta, 1374 W. Peachtree St. 404-885-1365. www.centerstage-atlanta.com. (Ben Fisher)
