Wednesday 19 

DANIELLE HOWLE, MIKE WINGER — The wonderfully comic and entertaining Howle (a Daemon artist from South Carolina who recently had an indie hit in Alaska, of all places) shares the stage tonight with Mike Winger, formerly of — no, not metal band Winger — but Athens pop band Dayroom. Eddie's Attic (Nicoll)

KINA — A powerful new soul-rock singer, in the vein of Dionne Farris and Macy Gray, makes her local debut tonight. She's got her debut CD coming out on DreamWorks in May, so now's the time to get a jump on this very promising up-and-comer. Yin Yang Café (Sarig)

JIM ROLL, AMY PIKE — Opening for singer/songwriter Jim Roll, whose latest CD Lunette is drawing favorable reviews, is the former Continentals vocalist Pike, who's taking a radical change of direction with her new, unhinged "Legendary Stardust Cowgirl" persona. The Earl (Nicoll)

SHIVAREE, KING LEER JET — Shivaree is a smart, compact little combo fronted by songstress Ambrosia Parsley, who has clearly absorbed influences as diverse as Rickie Lee Jones, Nina Persson (Cardigans), Sheryl Crow and Patsy Cline — not to mention Vic Chesnutt, Tom Waits and Tricky. The band's debut album, largely produced by Joe Henry, displays a delightfully trippy/edgy/murky/scratchy ambiance and, just as importantly, a healthy disregard for formula. Shivaree headline tonight's early show, starting at 7 p.m. Local pop quartet King Lear Jet headline a separate late show, starting at 9 p.m. Smith's Olde Bar (Falstaff)

COOPER TISDALE, HOWARD SHAFT — Jazz-inflected local popster Tisdale and his band share the stage tonight with the tasty tunes of Louisiana export Shaft. Brandyhouse (Nicoll)

TIME TRAVIL — With a tabla player at the center of the band's sound, tons of intricate rhythm play and influences that draw equally from classical Indian music and bebop, this is not your average jam band. Still, we're talking about a drummer, bass and tabla. Not a lot of high end, but probably way more interesting than half the stuff that passes for experimental improv. Eyedrum (Trammell)

X-IMPOSSIBLES, EL CAMINOS — The X-Imps are riding high these days, having accomplished the considerable feat of besting the mighty El Caminos at their own game a couple weeks ago on this club's stage. Tonight, however, comes the spectacular re-match. Star Bar (Nicoll)
