THE CALLING, LAURA DAWN -- Don't hate them because they're beautiful -- hate them because they epitomize every trite cliche in the commercial alt-rock handbook. Mix the most pretentious arena rock bombast of matchbox twenty and Lifehouse, add a bottle of peroxide, and you wind up with a band that better revel in its 15 minutes while it lasts. Similarly, opener Dawn is best described as the sum of her obvious Alanis/Liz Phair/P.J. Harvey influences. Cotton Club (Horowitz)

FRED LEBLANC -- The life-lovin' slab of meat from the Crescent City, normally found pounding the drums with Cowboy Mouth, shows his quieter, gentler singer/songwriter side. Smith's Olde Bar (Smith)

WILLIAM PREUCIL -- Formerly with the Atlanta Symphony, William Preucil takes time off from his current stint as concertmaster of the Cleveland Orchestra to spend an afternoon in his old hometown. He's joined by his wife, Gwen Starker Preucil, and daughter Alexandra in a family reunion of music-making with the Georgian Chamber Players. Spivey Hall (Brown)

WEAKLAZYLIAR, COOPER SEAY, ALASTOR -- An evening of somber intensity is in store when three rock acts come together for an intimate Attic show. Weaklazyliar showcases the awe-inspiring voice of Gerlinda Grimes -- though former Viva la Diva bandleader Cooper Seay's fine pipes may provide Grimes with a fitful challenge. Opening is the uptempo, introspective Alastor, led by fiery siren Elizabeth Elkins. Eddie's Attic (Nicoll)
