THURS/JANUARY 18
ALL OUT WAR -- New York's All Out War combine the sludgy, lumbering riffs of metal with the vocal cord-tearing howl of hardcore. They're touring with Dying Fetus, Diecast and Cryptosy. Masquerade (Ware)

DARLING MACHINE -- Darling Machine mine the velvet goldmine of '70s influences (yes, the Holy Trinity of David, Iggy and Lou and fellow travelers such as the New York Dolls, the Heartbreakers and the Voidoids). What does this mean? Simple, raw riffs, no over-the-top solos or, in more glamorous terms: always-in-season basics with some occasional glitter. PlanetJam Cotton Club (Ware)

LAUREN FINCHAM, LESLIE BERRY, KAREN E. REYNOLDS, LAURA MCLEAN -- Atlanta singer/songwriter Fincham is hosting tonight's event, a benefit for the Indiegrrl Foundation, and performing her own material as well. Reynolds is a singer-songwriter from Knoxville who owns and operates a booking/management agency, a record label and hosts "Writer's Block" on public radio. Berry's piano-based pop is like Paula Cole in a polite catfight with Tori Amos. Angelic-voiced shredder McLean, from Wilmington, N.C., is also a widely exhibited photographer. Eddie's Attic (Smith)

GRACE BRAUN AND THE EVEN STRANGERS -- As this acoustic trio's electric alter ego, DQE, gets set to release a new CD, The Queen of Mean, next month, Braun and company take the stage to present an entirely different set of songs and moods. Allison Kendra Hunt opens. The Earl (Sarig)

THE SPOTLIGHT -- A weekly rap competition, which suspiciously requires contestants to sell 10 $10 tickets or else pay $100 to perform, debuts tonight. The winner, determined by the audience, gets $200 and an invitation to return the following week (no entry fee required). Call 770-736-7880 for more information. The Atrium (Sarig)

SYRUP -- Syrup simply must be seen to be disbelieved. They're an entire band of giants who, although they dress like the disco cowboy from the Village People, play searing electric rock songs in the spirit of Skynyrd and KISS while simultaneously executing perfect Motown-style stage choreography. (No kidding.) Star Bar (Nicoll)

STARHUSTLER, JOHN P. STROHM -- The "friends and family of Juliana Hatfield tour 2001" comes through town tonight with Starhustler, the Boston indie-pop outfit led by Juliana sib Jason Hatfield, and former Blake Babies journeyman and roots-pop talent, John P. Strohm. Echo Lounge (Sarig)

THE TENDER IDOLS, METROSCENE -- The Tender Idols continue to live their lives at Smith's, tonight with houseguests including fellow Anglophiles Metroscene. The Metro boys try hard to stay true to the Union Jack and usually don't seem as forced as a few other faux-Brits that lurk 'round the colonies. Both bands have new full-length CDs on the way. Wayne opens. Smith's Olde Bar (Smith)
