THURS/FEBRUARY 1
CANDELA, NUTE -- A similar bill rocked a nearly empty Masquerade a couple of weeks ago, so the powers that be evidently are giving the real Queens of Rawk a chance to again headline and reclaim their thorny crown. Candela features the hammer-solid drumming of former Radiant City member Mickey Hendrix. Proving her relation to cousin Jimi (yes that Jimi) nightly in blood and soul, Hendrix manages to slam mightily without sacrificing melody. Headbangin' warriors Nute make the thankless drive from North Carolina to open, immediately followed by mighty thuds from Something 5 and Ludlow. Masquerade (Smith)

JACK WEST, JANE IVY -- Although their names suggest a duo, this is actually two separate and very different acts. Jack West is a new local country/rock combo, similar in sound to the Ex-Husbands, and masterminded by Robin Salmon of the band Christopher Robin. Jane Ivey is another Atlanta-based group, this one featuring Anne Marie Perry (ex-Gild the Lily) and J.P. Stout of the Ditchdiggers, who suggest Concrete Blonde without the goth overtones. Star Bar (Nicoll)

KICKSTAND, 34 SATELLITE -- Guitarist/vocalist Ray Dafrico (KTO, the Niteporters, Soulfinger, etc.) is the heart and soul of this furiously rockin' combo, which just added six-string slinger Jeff Guinness (Dragline, Dry County Drunks) to its already powerful lineup. Also on the bill is 34 Satellite, a pop version of that lonesome country cowboy playing his harmonica in front of some dim campfire embers. The band's music drowns in both sadness and contentment. Like "Girlfriend"-era Matthew Sweet, the vocal work of frontman Marc Benning is at its best when it rolls along with a kind of touching, optimistic vulnerability. Smith's Olde Bar (Nicoll/Hutchinson)

NOTHIN' BUT THE BLUES -- See article. Atlanta History Center (Powell)

ROOSTER BOOSTER -- Whisker's in Dunwoody hosts a benefit for a music engineer from Atlanta (recently transplanted to New York) who has been diagnosed with colon cancer. An exact lineup is unavailable, but expect a host of notable local artists crossing genres. The show was announced at the Marvelous 3 show last week at the Tabernacle, so surprise guests and large audiences may be possible. Tickets are $25, available, along with information, by calling 404-285-4214. Whisker's-Dunwoody/8371 Roswell Rd. (Ware)
