Wednesday, Dec. 19 

ASO -- No plans for lunch? No money for symphony tickets? If so, you're a perfect candidate to attend this free one-hour holiday concert by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. North Avenue Presbyterian Church/607 Peachtree (Sarig)

CRYBABY, GOODNIGHT INSOMNIACS, AMERICAN DREAM -- Crybaby continues its residency tonight at its temporary Moreland Avenue home with an evening worth staying up for (see Earshot, p. 91). Delicious tension and lovely release is the rule as Goodnight Insomniacs keep everyone on their toes with surprisingly alert observations on the human psyche. American Dream provides gauzy dreamscapes featuring David Railey's pillow-soft tunes, and Deisha Oliver's lulling cello.Star Bar (Smith)

EPICENTER -- A new Wednesday fixture at Trinity Downtown Lounge, Epicenter features DJs Eve & Motomasa broadcasting the eclectic sounds of ambient, nu_jazz, broken beat, drum 'n' bass and house from the mystic pyramid. Trinity (Ware)

...GALLOWAY..., CLAIRE AND BAIN'S MAPLE YUM YUM -- Spirited if somewhat sloppy variations on the folk formula, Galloway's multi-instrumental performances are accompanied by a live visual art troupe whose exhibitions range from video manipulations to puppet shows. "Front-porch rocking-chair music"-makers Claire and Bain's Maple Yum Yum are a thousand bucks richer thanks to the their recent win at Eddie's Attic's Open-Mic Shootout. They share their secrets to sudden fortune tonight. Eyedrum (Hutchinson)

HERITAGE CHERRY'S FAREWELL SHOW -- Though this is billed as a "farewell," Heritage artists Shannon Tanner and Adam Wright are not going away. They'll continue to record and perform, but will merely drop their band name. Alex McCollough (bass) and Ganesh Giri (drums) will continue to back the 'Cherry pickers both onstage and in the studio. Tanner and Wright's Nashville pal Park Chisolm opens. Smith's Olde Bar (Smith)

MOST DON'T KNOW 3 -- Kaleidoscope takes over the Dark Horse as pH Balance MC/DJ Captain Mudfish Starbolt presents an evening with his friends. Mudfish's bandmate Pam Howe provides a solo set, while DJ T'Challa and DJ Marcus A. take turns at the tables. And Mudfish himself takes control of the hardware for a set starring the Minamina Goodsong MCs. Dark Horse Tavern (Sarig)

SIX PARTS SEVEN, GOOD FRIDAY EXPERIMENT -- Ohio-based instrumental quartet Six Parts Seven specializes in lush, circular, intertwining guitars and unhurried -- some might say snoozy -- tempos. Somewhere between Eno's languid soundscapes and early Love Tractor, their delicate music goes down easily on album, but will be a tougher sell in a noisy club where the atmosphere is less conducive to their ethereal approach. Good Friday Experiment -- the project of local Red Lab producer Ed Rawls -- offers gentle psychedelic space-rock excursions that drift and drone beautifully, like a more country-influenced Pink Floyd. Asanisimasa opens. The Earl (Horowitz/Ware)
