CL'S NOTED ACTS FOR SUNDAY, July 9

BENEFIT FOR "FRENCHY" POLIAKOFF -- There's a 5 p.m. start time for this tremendous lineup, featuring Elise Witt, Joyce Brookshire, Full Moon, the DeLuxe Vaudeville Orchestra, Scott & Janna, Ashley & Mark, Doria Roberts, Joyce & Jacque, Gracie & the Slipcovers, Jan Smith, Lift and Gentle Readers. It's a fund-raiser for the beloved Cowboy Envy vocalist "Frenchy" Poliakoff, whose medical insurance won't fully cover the costs from the drastic cancer-related surgery she recently underwent. (The $10 donation oughta be well worth it, just for Uncle Mark alone.) Eddie's Attic (Nicoll)

RICHARD BICKNELL -- This local singer/songwriter possesses a fine, emotive voice that wavers somewhere between folk-rock sturdiness and Texas-troubadour high-lonesomeness. The music follows suit appropriately. Bicknell, a seasoned performer, puts on shows that are both emotionally engaging and professionally accomplished. Smith's Olde Bar (Robertson)

BLOOD BROTHERS, ELECTROSLEEP INTERNATIONAL -- The Washington State-based Blood Brothers offer up an almost vile display of rampant youthful energy on their latest burst of friction, This Adultery is Ripe. It's like the early Stones gone punk. Electrosleep International are one of the coolest bands to emerge from Ratlanta in awhile and shouldn't be missed. 404-522-4257. Squaresville/695 Woodward Ave. (Foy)

JIMMIE DALE GILMORE -- See article on p. 83. Variety Playhouse (Kelly)

LYN LARSEN -- Larsen, recently named "Organist of the Year" by the American Theatre Organ Society, performs a one-time-only performance at the Fox. Her program on the theater's own "Mighty Moeller" organ will include classic pieces as well as selections from the performer's own albums. Fox Theater (Robertson)

MOODY BLUES WITH THE ASO -- Rarely has a band, their audience and a venue been so perfectly aligned as for this annual sold-out show. The graying Moodys, once vaguely psychedelic purveyors of late-'60s pseudo-mysticism and orchestral pomp-rock have, like their fans, become pudgy, boring and shifted so far into the mainstream that you're more likely to hear their music in elevators than on radio. Which makes these guys the perfect background for conservative, middle-aged, used-ta-be hippies, who are more interested in the age of their Brie and red wine than in riding their seesaws to their wildest dreams. Progrock with an MBA, flute and strings those goes down as easy as an overpriced take-out dinner from Eatzi's. Chastain Park Amphitheater (Horowitz)
