FLAMING LIPS, EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY, STARDEATH & WHITE DWARFS The Lips evolved from widescreen acid-rocking punks into mad layered pop geniuses during the past quarter-century, uniting the spacey and elegantly beautiful. Dynamic instrumentalists Explosions in the Skys symphonies have sharper, more aerodynamic edges. $43. 7:30 p.m. Chastain Park Amphitheatre. 404-233-2227. www.classicchastain.com. Chris Parker
THE RESCUES This half male/female quartet is comprised of respected singer/songwriters whose own folk-pop is critically acclaimed. But together they prove the axiom that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Thats especially true when the Fleetwood Mac-styled harmonies start flying. $15-$75. 8 p.m. Eddies Attic. 404-377-4976. www.eddiesattic.com. Hal Horowitz
ELIZA GILKYSON, DEDE VOGT In an ocean of talented singer/songwriters, Gilkyson stands out with her "cut to the bone" honesty and insight. Turning darkness into beauty is an art, and Gilkyson is a true purveyor. Local songster Vogt opens. $18-$90. 8 p.m. Eddie's Attic. 404-377-4976. www.eddiesattic.com. James Kelly
ENSEMBLE PAMPELMOUSSE This NYC crew of modern classical misfits is bent on exploring the outer limits of electronic and improvised music. Remarkable chemistry binds the group's members, and their camaraderie is just as important to their sound as their virtuoso skills when it comes to manning a procession of flute, strings, drums and knobs on their trek. $8. 8 p.m. Eyedrum. 404-522-0655. www.eyedrum.org. Chad Radford
THE INCREDIBLE SANDWICH This Athens quartet dig deep grooves filled with jazz-blues-folk-funk ganache spilling out a spunky mix of the Dead, MM&W, and Weather Report. Their debut EP ranges from jazzy pop atmospheres to expansive fusion jams with a rootsy undercurrent. Free. 5:30 p.m. Sweetwater Brewing Company. 404-691-2537. www.sweetwaterbrew.com. Chris Parker

Andy from Weeknight (opening for Bear in Heaven) is from Atlanta as well. (Snellville, anyway).
Oh and if you do your research, Tichelman went to Ga state for a journalism…
Look Alix Tichelman has nothing to do with this case. It's just a small world…
Someone should do a documentary about Atlanta before all this other stuff took our identity…
Thank you, Maurice!
Thanks for proving my point Mark. You are a wanker. Off! rocks. You on the…
