WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13 

BIG WRECK -- Sounding a bit like Creed, Three Doors Down and the like, these Boston boys definitely have a rockin' edge. Pounding drums, plucked keyboards and Ian Thornley's distinctive vocals make for some pretty catchy tunes. Smith's Olde Bar (Keel)

CAPPADONNA -- See Record Reviews, p. 85. EarthLink Live (Whitaker)

DOMINO KINGS -- See Record Reviews, p. 85. Echo Lounge (Kelly)

BEBEL GILBERTO -- Her debut Tanto Tempo already is one of the top-selling Brazilian albums of all time Stateside, its savvy but restrained trip-hop and electronica overtones help her reach a wide constituency. Then there was her "Girl From Ipanema" contribution to that Kenny G album. She should know a thing or two about bossa nova, her dad Joao Gilberto co-founded the genre (with Tom Jobim) in 1958. Variety Playhouse (Falstaff)

NIGHTHAWKS -- Washington, D.C.'s hardest-working roots combo keeps on keeping on almost 30 years down the line. Amazingly, they stay fresh and vital, slinging out blues and rocking R&B with the casual professionalism gained through years of playing any dive with a stage. They'll never get rich or famous, but these journeymen will deliver uncompromising music that'll leave you sweaty, satisfied and convinced they're the world's best band. At least for tonight. Blind Willie's (Horowitz)

SALOME'S WISH, VIETNAM -- Ditching her Stimulatingly fun pop at the door, Sue Stimulant and her Wishful crew continue to raise a ghostly racket as their residency continues. Tonight, the early '80s Atlanta new-wave band Vietnam make a rare "reunion" appearance. Star Bar (Smith)
