CL's picks for the week's best shows

Page 3 of 3

WED/18

ARBOURETUM, DAVID KARSTEN DANIELS Dave Heumann is the brain behind Arbouretum's rustic and eloquent lyrics and somber strum that places the group among the indie-country underground's most engaging sleepers. As such, his songs are weary, reflective and full of literary symbolism. Singer/songwriter Daniels opens the show. $7. 9 p.m. Drunken Unicorn. www.thedrunkenunicorn.net. -- CR

ANTHONY HAMILTON, LYFE JENNINGS Who says soul music has gone pop? Hamilton and Jennings are two successful artists rarely covered in the mainstream media. Hamilton is one of the finest soul singers of the decade, so talented that even Southern Comfort, a just-released collection of demos and early tracks, sounds great. Comedian Mike Brooks opens. $50-$65. 8 p.m. Atlanta Civic Center. 404-523-6275. www.atlantaciviccenter.com. -- MR

MY SIAMESE SELF, CAN CAN, ANNA NICHOLEMINER'S DAUGHTER Atlanta-based feminist poetry collective Cliterati is presenting this event, officially called "Pretty In Punk." The bill spotlights three scorching punk acts anchored by the always incendiary, generally badass in every way trio My Siamese Self. Can Can features the still reigning Make-Out King of Atlanta and former Love Drunks leader Patrick A, and a welcome return from ex-Motolitas guitarist Mary Collins. Completing the lineup is my choice for best band name since the Kathleen Turner Overdrive, Anna Nicholeminer's Daughter, a new outfit with the hard-hitting vocals and savage bass attack of Jen Caldwell. $7. 9 p.m. The Earl, 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com. -- LVS

THURS/19

ATLANTA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA Energetic Norwegian-born conductor Arild Remmereit makes his ASO debut, opening the program with incidental music for Henrick Ibsen's play "Peer Gynt" composed by fellow Norwegian Edvard Grieg. Then ASO concertmaster Cecylia Arzewski is featured soloist for W.A. Mozart's "Violin Concerto No. 5, K. 219." An audience favorite, the "Polovotsian Dances" from the opera Prince Igor by Russian chemist/composer Alexander Borodin, closes the show. $28-$65. Thurs.-Sat., 8 p.m. Symphony Hall, Woodruff Arts Center. 404-733-5000. www.atlantasymphony.org. -- MG

BILLY JOE SHAVER, LARRY JON WILSON Lord have mercy, Texas songwriter extraordinaire Billy Joe's done got himself in trouble again, this time poppin' a cap in a drunk with a knife. If he's out of jail in time for this gig, he may already have a song about the incident, and it will be a good one. Wilson could carry the gig on his own if Shaver doesn't make it. Yeah, he's that good. $20-$25. 8 p.m. Eddie's Attic. 404-377-4976. www.eddiesattic.com. -- JK
