The ATL Collective plays 'Ram'

When Paul and Linda McCartney released their collaborative album Ram in 1971, critical reception proclaimed it a massive failure. Here's to time and perspective, then, because Ram's a terrific, fun, playful and not-nearly-as-lightweight-as-it-seems album from one of pop's most creative minds.

The ATL Collective, a gathering of local musicians, recreates entire albums for its monthly performance. (They've done Thriller, they've done Elton John's Tumbleweed Connection, etc.) Tonight it's Ram and its songs "Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey," "Eat at Home," and "The Back Seat of My Car." Performers include Lera Lynn, Adron, Cicada Rhythm, and Sleepy Guest.

Tonight (Fri., Jan. 24). Elliot Street Deli & Pub. 51 Elliott St. 404-523-2174.
