SUNDAY, DEC 2 

COUNTERPOINT -- The Music for Missions series presents Counterpoint, a country and bluegrass quartet fronted by singer/guitarist Joy Smith, who has performed at the Grand Old Opry, and Wally Alford, a Tucker-based "country lawyer" who plays the Dobro. The performance celebrates the start of the Advent season. For information, call 770-939-3717. Lawrenceville Road United Methodist Church/3142 Lawrenceville Highway (Sarig)

CROPDUSTER, VUE-- Cropduster fly their rickety biplane down from New Jersey to spray Smith's with an infectious mix of fun pop and goofy, giddy country-punk. Vue, from San Francisco, feature the Stones-and-Stooges sexual tension of vocalist Rex Shelverton and the demure passion of keyboardist Jessica Graves, as seen through the Sub Pop funhouse mirror. Smith's Olde Bar (Smith)

DEKALB CHORAL GUILD -- See listing for Sat., Dec. 1. Embry Hills United Methodist Church/3304 Henderson Mill Road (Sarig)

EL VEZ -- See Record Reviews, p. 100. Echo Lounge (Horowitz)

MACY GRAY, DAKOTA MOON -- With her scratchy voice, disheveled hair and goofy stage presence, the ubiquitous Gray is one of the most idiosyncratic and unlikely soul stars of the past decade. Backed by her enormous band, Gray can get by on chutzpah alone, but never succumbs to just being overtly wacky when whirling through sexually charged, '70s-styled R&B that connects far better live than on album. Dakota Moon look like an R&B vocal group but sound more like a lite-rock group. Big on corporate tie-ins that have as yet not yielded massive fame, Dakota Moon have been the voice of Pepsi commercials. The title track off their forthcoming A Place to Land album appeared as the theme song in promos for NBC's fall season. Tabernacle (Horowitz)

ME'SHELL NDEGEOCELLO -- The hand-on-hip soul sister sass of Me'Shell Ndegeocello's 1993 debut Plantation Lullabies, and her sadly beautiful Bitter album from 1999 make for two of that decade's true buried treasures. With her fourth LP due in February, Ndegeocello is doing a brief run of shows to road-test new material. Variety Playhouse (Berkery)

PIECES OF EIGHT -- If you like your holiday musical feast with all the trimmings, Pieces of Eight just might do it for you. Coming from a classical music background, they run with it into formerly forbidden territory -- jazz, pop, reggae, doo-wop, gospel and soul -- and of course, classical. Spivey Hall (Brown)
