ED ROLAND AND FRIENDS This annual benefit for the H.E.R.O. (Hearts Everywhere Reaching Out) for Children organization, dedicated to helping youngsters with AIDS, features Mr. Collective Soul himself in a rare, acoustic, solo setting. Removed from his group's arena-rock bluster and pumped-up arrangements, his hooky, melodic songs shine just as brightly and the intimate setting encourages digging deep into his fertile catalog. Roland has been an Atlanta musical fixture since the band's 1993 debut, so his "friends" will likely be well-known local artists. The combination is sure to yield a terrific night of music even for non-CS fans. $20-$30. 8 p.m. Eddie's Attic. 770-377-4976. www.eddiesattic.com. -- HH
ARLINGTON PRIEST, JACKSON COUNTY LINE Tonight's double bill features the smooth, melodic, easy-listening side of Americana. Duet act Arlington Priest has been doing its thing in town for quite a while, and its pop influences are easy on the ears. Locals JCL fit into a similar category, and the group has a new CD just out with some rather interesting instrumentation. $10-$50. 8 p.m. Eddie's Attic. 404-377-4976. www.eddiesattic.com. -- JK

Their show with Chris, Lord about 3 years at the Unicorn was the best.
I am a connoisseur of this real soul music like the comment above I'm glad…
You've got a few of my faves listed here, plus a bunch I've never heard…
This is such a cool idea and the performance is great (I've been twice) but…
