Sunday, Jan. 20 

COWBOY ENVY -- Anyone who's spent an afternoon mesmerized by the Westerns channel has probably caught Rex Allen Jr. singing one of the network's musical intermissions. And anyone who's ever seen Cowboy Envy knows that these three ladies could do it a whole heap better. So turn off your TV and saddle up for this 5:30 p.m. matinee show, way out in the wild west of Decatur. Eddie's Attic (Nicoll)

DIESELBOY, DARA, DUDA -- A New Year's Eve "Planet of the Drum" makeup party, Liquid Groove's Martin Luther King Jr. weekend celebration doesn't feature everyone on the original lineup. But considering that it's free for ticket-holders ($2 otherwise) -- a thoughtful gesture from the promoters, whose New Year's event was an unforeseen nightmare -- who's to bitch. Peep Dieselboy, Dara and Duda -- the DJs who put the "D"-licious in funky and fierce drum 'n' bass -- and show your support for Liquid Groove. Studio Central (Ware)

DUNCH WITH FAITH KLEPPINGER -- An excuse to gobble some breakfast food even when it's well past noon, "Dunch" eases you into the day -- and cures your hangover -- with the velvety voice of singer/songwriter Faith Kleppinger, the sultry siren from the Little Bobby Taylors. Sunday is, after all, a superb time to experience Faith. The Earl (Nicoll)

THE FINE ARTS QUARTET -- See The Score. Bremen Museum (Brown)

LUDAVICO TECHNIQUE, UNIVERSAL OVERDOSE -- Named after the shocking thought-correction process in A Clockwork Orange, this quintet of Atlanta scene vets treads the fine line between psychedelia and untethered outerspace exploration. Former Needle/Johnny Hyde Quartet guitarist Alan Connor and current drivin n cryin lead guitarist Mac Carter steer the band through a confounding Kubrick's cube of trippy rock. This is an early show, with the Technique playing at 9 p.m. and Universal Overdose (comprised of some of the loopy guys from the always-unpredictable Goodies) closing out the evening with a 10 p.m. set. Smith's Olde Bar (Smith)

JANE MONHEIT -- Need a gorgeous living icon to jump-start your jazz? Behold singer Jane Monheit, looking at you with the lantern eyes of a film noir femme fatale on the front of her debut, Never Never Land, or posing like a feral jungle feline on the cover of her most recent album, Come Dream With Me. Better yet, catch her live with her quartet. Then you'll have proof that there's a pellucid voice behind those indelible images. Spivey Hall (Kaliss)

PHILIP GLASS ENSEMBLE -- The big "Philip on Film" week kicks off tonight with screenings of new short films by Atom Egoyan, Peter Greenaway, Shirin Neshat, Michal Rovner and Godfrey Reggio, accompanied by the music of Philip Glass, performed live by Glass and his ensemble. If you've already seen (and heard) Glass' previous film work (which is screened with a live soundtrack throughout the week), tonight's newer material is worth checking out. Given the slowly shifting, arpeggio-filled minimalism that marks nearly all of Glass' work, there's no reason to expect a great departure here -- though his film work tends to be the place where stylistic divergences occur most. What's more, the subtle joys to be found in Glass' mesmerizing music are sure to be enhanced in live performance. See story and interview in Arts, p. 41. Woodruff Arts Center (Sarig)

SUE WITTY, SONIA TETLOW, MELANIE HAMMETT -- Don't be misled by the traditionally staid "songwriters in the round" format of this show. These artists are some of the most decidedly non-folk singers in the Decatur scene. Witty is sure to perform some material from her latest CD, Hydroplaning Ragamuffin, which was produced and engineered by DeDe Vogt of Cowboy Envy (who plays an early solo show tonight at Eddie's). Tetlow roars as leader of the fiery STB, and her solo material bristles with the same kinetic energy found on her newest album, Swerve. Hammett's comfortable warmth belies the tense inner structures of her often-complex tunes, which feature wonderfully sly political and social references. Eddie's Attic (Smith)
