SUNDAY, JULY 29 

NAJUMA ALI -- Local soul singer/poet Najuma Ali performs, along with Sauda, Heston, John Goode and others, at what's being billed as "An Evening of Peace and Love." Ali's forthcoming debut album, Ife (Love), features a mix of hip-hop, new soul, beat poetry and a cappella spirit-chants that, performed live, should easily do its part to fulfill the evening's promise. Apache Café (Sarig)

LESLIE BERRY -- See listing for July 27. Red Light Café (Smith)

DEEP BLUE SUN -- Even those of us who've long ago grown weary of classic-rock styles and Dead-ish grooves can easily find something to like in Deep Blue Sun. The interplay between male and female harmony vocals, the dynamic arrangements (though we could do without those gonzo guitar solos) and the music's general tunefulness all serve this local band well. Tonight's show, a release party for Deep Blues Sun's Will to Fly CD, is broadcast live on Z-93's "The Dunhams" show. Brandyhouse (Sarig)

ELLIOT HOLDEN GROUP -- Blending upfront guitar virtuosity with smooth jazz and funk grooves, the Elliot Holden Group turns out a talented if somewhat inconsistent contemporary fusion. Taking the improvisational style that has become identifiable with the jam-rockers of the '90s, EHG tighten down a notch and charge it with an R&B flair. Smith's Olde Bar (Hutchinson)

COREY GLOVER, ATLANTA SOUL MOVEMENT ALL-STARS -- The latest in the "Rebirth of Soul" series organized by local promoters the Atlanta Soul Movement features the powerful chords of former Living Colour vocalist Corey Glover. Joining him on the bill is the Atlanta Soul Movement All-Stars, a revolving group of scene musicians. Celebrity Rock Café (Sarig)

NORMALTOWN FLYERS -- Veteran Athens ensemble, hailing from the "Normaltown" section of the Classic City, avoids the art-school pretense of many intown Athens bands. The Flyers play a mixture of Southern rock, folk and country, with an easygoing down-home vibe that should be right at home on a lazy summer afternoon. Special 4 p.m. show time. Chip's/Winder (Smith)

AMY PIKE -- Perhaps the best reason for getting out of bed Sunday is Dunch (dinner/brunch) at the Earl, where the food is excellent and the music's hot and live. Performing up front in the dining room is sultry-voiced Amy Pike, a local scene veteran whose Patsy Cline inflections are sweeter than brown sugar on fresh-cooked grits. The Earl (Nicoll)
