CL'S noted acts for WEDNESDAY.19

B-52'S, GO-GO'S, PSYCHEDELIC FURS -- Lakewood Amphitheatre (York)

BRIAN SETZER ORCHESTRA, FOUR BITCHIN' BABES -- The former Stray Cats bandleader knows how to put on a show, and his backup band is so huge there's literally nothing they can't play. The 007 theme? Sure, with both the twangy guitar and the horn section. "The Pink Panther?" No problem. "Brand New Cadillac?" You got it. Go cat wild! Also see story, p. 83. Openers Four Bitchin' Babes, a folk-pop quartet with over a decade under their belt, bring lovely harmonies, rollicking melodies and a wicked sense of humor to the stage. While several singer-songwriter notables have passed through the Babes' ranks (including Patti Larkin and Janis Ian), the focus rests squarely on ensemble performances and a wry lyrical jocularity typified by songs like their faux-country epic "Viagara in the Waters." Chastain Park Amphitheater (Nicoll/Robertson)

GERLINDA GRIMES, JENNIFER DANIELS, PAUL MELANCON -- A writers-in-the-round event featuring the whisper-smooth vocals of Weak Lazy Liar's Gerlinda Grimes and the smart pop stylings of Paul Melancon (ex-Radiant City), with the vastly underrated introspective work of Jennifer Daniels sandwiched in between. It's an 8 p.m., 21-and-over show. Eddie's Attic (Nicoll)

THE K.G.B. -- Does the world actually need another Smashmouth? Well someone at Dreamworks sure must think so. To be fair, this Bay Area band doesn't sound much like Smashmouth, though undeniable similarities lurk underneath their plastic-coated veneer. Irksome (yet damn catchy) tunes and manufactured punk spikiness may have the K.G.B. poised for post-millennial, one-hit wonderdom, but believe me you've heard it all before -- and not that long ago either. Smith's Olde Bar (Robertson)

NINE DAYS, SR71 -- Okay, a "new math" question for all you diligent readers. What do you get when you divide Baltimore band SR71 by New York's Nine Days? Fourth Eye Blind is what. Yep, two more unimaginative, pop-rock bands making a grab for the brass ring, with nary an interesting conceit between them. Great hair cuts though. Roxy (Robertson)

WOGGLES, THE NOW!, KING'S ENGLISH -- The mighty Woggles will import ace keyboardist Jay Thomas (ex-Royal Pendletons) from N'Awlins to play some authentically cheesy Farfisa organ throughout tonight's set. The Now! offer a complementary sound with some '60s-style pop organ tunes of their own. (There's a rumor that the garage-stompin' King's English may well have broken up by showtime.) Star Bar (Nicoll)
