Sound Menu 

SAT/MARCH 17
ATLANTA BAROQUE ORCHESTRA -- In its final concert of the season, the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra performs a set of crowd favorites, featuring Pachelbel's ubiquitous "Canon" and Handel's "Water Music" suites. Guest vocalists and horn soloists join the orchestra for this performance. Cathedral of Christ the King (Hutchinson)

ATLANTA SCHOLA CANTORUM -- Performing a choral program titled "The Lamb," based on the William Blake poem, the Atlanta Schola Cantorum explores the spirit and history of the Lenten season. The program spans the Renaissance through the 20th century. Church of the Epiphany (Hutchinson)

BUDDY O'REILLY BAND -- Saints preserve us, 'tis the greenest thing in town tonight. O'Reilly and his lucky charms are as pure as the Irish Spring. Traditional Celtic music from a seven-piece group, featuring Lisa Edwards backed by bodhran, tin whistle, pipes, fiddle and more. Eddie's Attic (Smith)

THE CONVOCATION OF ..., VAN HEROIN -- On their new self-titled disc, Baltimore's Convocation Of manage to add decent helpings of spatial atmosphere, low-end and even some guitar squall to their math rock. This helps make up for the rather bland and passionless vocals. Fans of the genre will be plenty satisfied, though. Eyedrum (Foy)

COOLWORLD CLUB TOUR -- Pure Charisma hosts the godfather of techno himself, Juan Atkins. A musical visionary whose sound can be described as a hybrid of P-Funk and Kraftwerk electro-pop, Juan Atkins crafts sublime Detroit techno. Also on the bill are Kimball Collins, Florida's progressive trance pioneer; Wish FM, who DJed alongside John Digweed in last year's rave movie Groove; and live trance act Spacemen, among other trance, house, breaks and drum 'n' bass DJs. The Atrium (Morin/Ware)

CROOKED FINGERS -- Come plumb the depths of indie-rock miserablism with former Archers of Loaf frontman Eric Bachmann. Forgoing the Archers' skronk-pop for broodingly melodic chamber folk, Bachmann's warm croak weaves tales of high-lonesome drunkenness and general fuck-the-world malaise. The perfect soundtrack for those angst-ridden, post-collegiate days. The Earl (Robertson)

DURAN DURAN -- See listing for March 14. Earthlink.Live (York)

MARY CLEERE HARAN -- Cabaret singer Mary Cleere Haran makes her Atlanta debut accompanied by pianist Sir Richard Rodney Bennett. Her current show looks back to the music and times of Manhattan in the 1920s, featuring the songs of Tin Pan Alley's greatest composers. Rialto Center (Sarig)

JANE IVY -- Atlanta rock band Jane Ivy sound like what you might get if Janis Joplin, Jimmy Page, John Entwistle and Carmine Appice formed a group together. It's magnificently crafted old-school rock, with nods to Ayn Rand in the lyrics. ReadyHorse76 opens. Trackside Tavern (Nicoll)

LOS ANGELES GUITAR QUARTET -- Yes, even the LAGQ can get in the spirit of St Patrick's Day with something special to go alongside Bizet's Carmen and Stravinsky's Pulcinella, although their "Celtic Fare" seems to be a bit of a misnomer. Spivey Hall (Falstaff)

LOURDS -- One night after her featured performance at The Chamber's Glitterdome, New York-based violin-toting hard-rock banshee Lourds puts in a second local appearance. Apparently a firecracker on stage, Lourds' driving music is lots more conventional that her wild image suggests. Masquerade (Sarig)

JOHN MCDERMOTT, ASO -- See listing for March 16. Symphony Hall (Falstaff)

PRICK MAGAZINE ST. PADDY'S DAY FEST -- The green ink flows tonight as the tattoo mag throws a St. Paddy's party featuring Dick Delicious and the Tasty Testicles, the Fabulous Lounge Punks and the Moonshine Killers. There'll be a tattoo contest at 9 p.m. OK, who wants a shamrock on their ass? The line forms here. Star Bar (Smith)

ST. PATRICK'S DAY POP MARATHON -- Doors open at 8 p.m. (and admission's $5 until 10 p.m.) for this epic night of rollicking pop, featuring (in order of appearance): Kenny Howes and Jason NeSmith (see article, p. 74), Johnny Hyde, the Marianne Faithfuls (regrouped '60s-style garage rockers), the Features (from Tennessee), the Moto-Litas, the Modeltones and the Lizardmen. Echo Lounge (Nicoll)

SOUP -- So they don't do jigs or reels, but this outdoor show is as good a reason as any to drink too much green beer and act silly, no matter what your heritage. Listen closely as Soup introduces new songs they promise are shorter and tighter than the extended jams of their past. They'll be two sets likely dominated by bubbly, danceable, upbeat tunes. Wear green -- go nuts. CJ's Landing (Horowitz)

TRAIN, LEFT FRONT TIRE -- As a perfectly acceptable poor-man's Dave Matthews Band or Counting Crows, Train's chiming songs, crisp playing and innocuous aw-shucks approach found them with a surprise platinum debut. That was three years ago, and this intimate show is a warm-up for their pleasant sophomore disc, due in a few weeks. Hardly rousing, but modest with heartfelt tunes and unaffected approach, you could do worse. After the Train rolls through, the youthful rockers of Left Front Tire take the stage for an energetic late night set. They're reckless youth on a mission to entertain. Smith's Olde Bar (Horowitz/Smith)

WCLK ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION -- The jazz voice of the city is turning 27 and you're invited. Oleta Adams headlines this swank affair's cabaret show. She's best known for the classic Get Here, but subsequent albums Evolution and the gospel Come with Me display her powerful range. Adams cut her teeth in nightclub shows back in Kansas City, so truly this one's a gift for the fans. For more information, call 404-880-8277. Westin Peachtree Plaza (Noelzine)
