Variety Playhouse
1099 Euclid Ave. 404-524-7354.
Fri., July 16 — Make no mistake. Here Come the Mummies are not the old-school, budget-rock garage-punk ghouls from the Bay Area that are so often associated with Estrus, Telstar and Pinup Records, but a completely different batch of undead rockers from the land of the pharaohs. These mummies play a comedic, surreal and totally funky blend of jazz and R&B dad rock. With songs titles like "Booty," "Libido Knievel" and "Attack of the Wiener Man," Here Come the Mummies are indeed a bit juvenile, and if you're an overly protective parent, the show isn't entirely appropriate for the kids — but it's no worse than cable TV. $15-$18. 8:30 p.m.
Sat., July — Girl's Rock Camp Showcase. $12-$15. 7:30 p.m.

982 Memorial Dr. 404-254-5955.
