Tuesday, Jan. 29 

CHEAP TRICK -- Twenty-five years and still rocking, America's oldest, most respected power-popsters have gotten their second wind and dropped the sappy Diane Warren tunes. They're churning through raw, raucous live shows some consider their best ever. They haven't released any original music in four years -- but who goes to hear the new stuff anyway? Georgia Theatre/Athens (Horowitz)

GORDON STONE BAND -- Most readily recognized as a repeat guest performer on early Phish recordings, former Vermont resident Gordon Stone has long since built a reputation of his own as one of the finest banjo and pedal steel players in the region. Incorporating drum kit, electric bass and a bevy of musical styles, the Gordon Stone Band taps into that Flecktonian sense of bluegrass opportunism. Smith's Olde Bar (Hutchinson)

LIVE FROM NEW YORK -- As much a blatant "SNL" reference as it is the god's honest truth, this acoustic package tour assembles some of the NYC neo-folk scene's more promising singer/songwriters: Teddy Goldstein, Anne Heaton, Edie Carey, Andrew Kerr and Sam Shaber (who's upcoming debut is being produced by Shawn Mullins). Part lighthearted banter, part self-effacing interaction, part deftly strummed sincerity, LFNY's bracing mix of humor and heartfelt music is the aural equivalent of a face full of iced coffee with heavy cream. Eddie's Attic (Rowland)

PROPHETIX -- Atlanta hip-hop trio Prophetix highlights tonight's installment of the Apache's weekly Tuesday event, The Ave. Prophetix's hook-filled, lyrically intricate single, "True Urban Grit"/"Prophetionals" propels the group's two MCs and DJ to the top of the local indie scene. Apache Cafe (Sarig)
