FRI/SEPTEMBER 29

NOTED ACTS
BENEFIT FOR SCOTT LAMBERT FEATURING THE EL CAMINOS -- Atlanta's most blastin', heavy-metal rockers, the El Caminos headline this benefit for the Fabulous Lounge Punks guitarist Lambert who was wounded by a burglar's gunfire. Also performing are the hard-rockin' grrrl group Candela, the Helgas and others. Doors open at 8 p.m. Echo Lounge (Nicoll)

SHIRLEY CEASAR, YOLANDA ADAMS, MARY MARY, ANGELLA CHRISTIE --Credit Adams and her former back-up singers, sister act Mary Mary for furthering the gospel-music reformation. The songstresses wouldn't be proclaiming the Good News through their R&B/soul fusion if it weren't for Ceasar. The church music diva was singing gospel when it wasn't cool in the late '60s. And though Grammies and Doves show times have changed, the humble, ordained woman of the cloth's vocal style and message remain the same. Atlanta Civic Center (Noelzine)

COUNTDOWN QUARTET, HOBEX -- Two North Carolina imports invade the Star Bar for a mixed double-bill. The Countdowners are an odd jazz/pop combo with some ska influences. Hobex are an odd country/rock combo with some R&B influences. Star Bar (Nicoll)

EMPIRE 44 -- See Earshot.

FIVE WAY FRIDAY, GARRISON FIELD -- Florida frat-rockers Five Way have a rabid following in Atlanta, where it seems all expatriate Sunshine State refugees eventually come to roost; but the real treat here is Garrison Field, a local band with an intense, mature, Peter Gabriel-ish sound. Smith's Olde Bar (Nicoll)

HALCYON, MICHELLE PENN -- Florida's answer to the Indigos plays two shows tonight, a 7 p.m. all-ages gig and a 9:30 p.m. set for the 21-and-up crowd. Michelle Penn, Atlanta's answer to Melissa Etheridge, opens the late show. Eddies Attic (Nicoll)

SAMMY KERSHAW -- What was once a decent country performer has become a sad parody of everything that is wrong with Nashville now. Kershaw's newest release is a collection of his cover songs from various tribute and charity CDs, and it is utterly heinous. From "Chevy Van" to "I Got a Name", it's karaoke from hell. Stay on the ferris wheel during this show. North Georgia State Fair (Kelly)

LEGENDS OF DOOWOP -- The "original" boy bands come to town on a wave of popularity inspired by a recent PBS special. Doo Wop had its roots in the tradition of street corner self-entertainment, featuring beautiful four or five part harmonies and innocent lyrics about true love and good times. Appearing on this bill are the Del Vikings, the Cadillacs, the Chantels and others. Many have at least a few original members, and it should be a blast. Lakewood Amphitheatre (Kelly)

ULTRABABYFAT, ANNIE -- No, not that Annie, but the sun will come out tonight, not tomorrow when Ultrababyfat hit the Earl's modest stage with some of the best-written and performed pop music in the region today. Smile and have fun, go ahead, tonight ya just can't help it! The Earl (Smith)
