THURS/DECEMBER 7

Noted Acts
FRED LEBLANC AND JOHN THOMAS GRIFFITH -- A manic drummer and one-man New Orleans Chamber of Commerce, LeBlanc will bang on an acoustic guitar tonight, joined by his fellow Cowboy Mouth guitarist John Thomas Griffith, in celebration of the re-issue of LeBlanc's solo album Double Dammit. No drums tonight, but there'll be plenty of life-loving, chest-beating anthems, nevertheless. LeBlanc will muscle his way through some fan favorites and this semi-gagged 'Mouth should spit out a few rarely heard loogies. Smith's Olde Bar (Smith)

DON CONOSCENTI -- Don Con, as his pals call him, is a typical traveling minstrel. Under his giant black hat and shiny dome is a very talented and often emotionally moving musician. Currently based in Colorado, Don has local fans that will surely remember his rollicking residency here during the '90s. Veering away from the tried and boring shtick of the typical granola-cruncher and heading toward guitar-hero status as a multi-capo player, Conoscenti is a delight to behold. Eddie's Attic (Smith)

MANNHEIM STEAMROLLER -- See article, p. 83. Philips Arena (Brown)

SLOBBERBONE, DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS -- If Texas held state-wide competitions to find a local band with the closest sound and feeling to Georgia's Drive-By Truckers, there's little doubt that Slobberbone would not only win, but that the awestruck judges would stagger home believing Jefferson Davis had won the Florida election by 3000 hanging chads. The Drive-By Truckers themselves open, so compare and contrast for yourself. Echo Lounge (Nicoll)

SWING SHIFT -- Six-piece swing band Swing Shift, with vocalist Miss Melanie, will perform a holiday show celebrating Ellington, Basie, Harry James and more. Dance lessons will be held prior to the performance. City Lights Dance Club/3539 Chamblee Tucker Road (Ware)

YOUNG ANTIQUES, STB -- Two of Atlanta's best trios share the bill tonight for an intelligent evening of authentic rock 'n' roll songwriting, not that manufactured-to-be-signed-and-then-dropped shit that's neither immortal nor new. The Antiques get better with every show, pushing their rock/new wave/country hybrid to new heights. STB's Sonia Tetlow, long one of Atlanta's best-kept secrets, is finally getting some overdue local recognition for her intense brand of magma-hot inner turmoil and cage-rattling rage. Star Bar (Smith)
