THURSDAY, OCT 4 

RACHEL BARTON, ASO -- Violinist Rachel Barton is getting to know her way around the world's best musical stages. She'll combine her own contemporary artistry with a bit of 19th century virtuosity when she performs the Saint-Saens Rondo Capriccioso with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Just to add a bit of Hollywood glamour, she's throwing in the Carmen Fantasy by movie composer Franz Waxman as well. More movie music -- from Leonard Bernstein and Nino Rota -- rounds out the program. Symphony Hall (Brown)

CONSTRUKT V2: GRANULAR SYNTHESIS -- Lifeform Project (featuring Ecotehk), along with Osaga, Figure 1.1 and Oliver Dodd, continues its series of abstract, IDM, ambient-influenced avant-garde multimedia performances, complemented by visual chaos by the Stimulator. Trinity (Ware)

ASCAP HEINEKEN AMPT MUSIC SERIES -- A first-rate lineup of live and local soul groups hit the stage starting at 8 p.m. Jjason Blackwell, Seek, Algebra and Tony Rich perform at this free showcase. Cotton Club (Sarig)

HUSTLER -- For one night all hustlers can unite for a cause -- a Libra party benefiting the Leukemia Society and the American Red Cross. DJs including Marcos Pieras and Michael Scott, Kevin Tate, Wade and J-Luv play deep, dirty house, while in the backroom they host downtempo and blunted hip-hop. Hip-hop DJs can come early at 8 p.m. to compete to qualify for the Kool Mixx 2001 competition, while people all night can enjoy the Xcitement Girls, visuals by Mutigen, percussion by the Ill Sonix Duo and a Marco's Pita buffet. Nomenclature Museum (Ware)

ITF -- The International Turntablist Federation DJ competition, originally scheduled at Nomenclature during the week of terrorist attack, takes place on a new day and at a new place. Along with the DJs performing their best routines, San Francisco's Mission lays down warm live, organic, jazzy hip-hop somewhere in the vein of the Roots meet People Under The Stairs. MJQ Concourse (Ware)

TWANGBANGERS TOUR -- See article, p. 89. Smith's Olde Bar (J. Kelly)

VUE -- Fashion rockers Vue kick out the blues like The Stones suited up in Prada. Their latest, Find Your Home (Sub Pop), is all dirt-under-the-manicure: the raucous stomp of "Pictures of Me" is spiked with glamour-boy posturing, thunderclap tempos and Rex Shelverton's raw-throated Jaggerisms. Vue is the Gospel to The Make-Up's politics, testifying of the horrors of love, sweating out the sin and bringing on a baptism of the blues. Though Vue's method of testifying could stand some variety, they atone for their sins of repetition with conviction, energy and hellfire. The Earl (Keyes)

CHELY WRIGHT -- This country crooner spends so much time touring, she claims to have "diesel fuel in [her] veins." Wright's commercial appeal and gorgeous looks should not distract from her real talent. There's not much vapid sentiment from this songbird. Her new album Never Love You Enough covers familiar territory with fresh insight and intelligence. This alone should guarantee some longevity, which is usually denied more by-the-numbers Nashville products. Cowboys (Madigan)
