CL'S noted acts for SATURDAY, July 29

CIGAR STORE INDIANS — Still smokin' after all these years, these country/rockabilly Cigars boast a lively punch and rich full flavor, but with a mellow edge and a pleasant finish. They always light up this Midtown crowd. Smith's Olde Bar (Nicoll)

SEAN COSTELLO — Apparently every city's got one these days: a preternaturally talented, young, white blues guitar player. Call it Johnny Langitis. Local boy Costello is all of 20, but he sings and plays with a convincing swagger well beyond his years. Drawing from the Chicago electric blues tradition, Costello's orthodoxy serves him well as he avoids pyrotechnic showboating and concentrates on the songs. What's more, he possesses a remarkably versatile voice, leaping from Howlin' Wolf growl to rockabilly smoothie with ease. Northside Tavern (Robertson)

FREAK THE JONES — Atlanta funk rockers host their annual Twister Wit Yo Sister shindig wherein contestants compete in a Twister tournament to have their name entered in drawing to have the band play in their back yard. Hmmm, OK then. Anyway, for the uninitiated, FTJ infuse their heavy riffage (and loooong guitar solos) with a nominally funky undertow — not unlike Fishbone with less versatility (and less funk, now that you mention it). Dark Horse Tavern (Robertson)

GERI ALLEN TRIOSee National Black Arts Festival overview.Spivey Hall (Powell)

GREAT ATLANTA BLUES REVUESee Talkin' Blues. Woodruff Park/downtown (Powell)

ADRIAN LEGG, DOMINIC GAUDIOUSGuitar Player magazine has anointed Adrian Legg "Best Fingerpicker" for four years running now, but he'd probably better watch his back when young gun Dominic Gaudious gets his own limber digits working on that rosewood fretboard. Red Light Café (Nicoll)

LOCALITY — A night of homegrown sights and sounds, featuring video works, installations and projections, as well as music from Soul Prophetic Sound, the avant jazz trio of Wade Thompson, Kim Lemonde and Bryan Feildon, plus DJs Gnosis, Rasheed and Decibaka. Eyedrum (Sarig)

LOVE CAMP 2000 — Underground filmmaker Joe Christ and writer Nancy Collins host another one-day fantasy fair and concert from 2 p.m. to 3 a.m. In addition to artists, authors, DJs, video screenings and nude body painting, the entertainment includes at least a half dozen bands. Atlanta goth rockers Sins of Lust combine elements of goth, industrial and shock rock with a stage show that includes live fetish performances and general sacrilege. Alabama's D.C. Moon adds a straight-ahead punk rock sound laced with themes of sci-fi movies and comic books. Nothing Inside bring a more ethereal element with keyboards, drum machines and programmed sounds combined with live guitars and spooky vocals effects. Also on the bill: Savannah-based Spo-Its, Huntsville's D'hiver Mort and hometown rockers Pinkeye. Somber Reptile (Nicoll/Williams)

MIRAGE — Grab your Buggirls, glowsticks, visors and lollipops for a trance, d&b, jungle and house extravaganza featuring national DJs Jerry Bonham, Heather Heart, Chris Fortier, Baby Anne and Virgil Lyon, as well as local acts Logic and Egorock with vocalist Suoat. Masquerade (Chen)

PETER, PAUL AND MARY — While purists scoffed at their buttery harmonies and fresh-faced approach to the rugged medium and hard-bitten ideals that Woody Guthrie espoused, Peter, Paul and Mary remain the most commercially successful folk vocal group ever. Their energetic mid-'60s covers of then-struggling Bob Dylan's work, as well as John Denver and Pete Seeger's, introduced these troubadours to a mainstream audience and Top 10 sales. Forty years on, their vigorous leftist stance as well as natural proclivity for children's songs keeps them active, if not quite edgy, and the trio's singing, weathered by age and experience, sounds even better these days. Chastain Park Amphitheater (Horowitz)

RAINER MARIA — Part of a newer squadron of middle American emo-core indies that includes Braid and Bright Eyes, this rock trio's lush melodies are sometimes pop, sometimes math rock and other times straight-up rock. But what holds steady here is the soaring voice of Caithlin De Marrais, which at times sounds like she might have risked an aneurysm to record. Well worth those singles in your pocket. Echo Lounge (Arieh)

SUPERCHICK AND GOODPUSSY — Returning to Earth to get funked-up again, Superchick and Goodpussy are back with a "multi-media" boogie night "freak enhancement" ceremony. The 14-piece "Orgasma Orchestra," featuring members of Gurufish, Mandorico, Kingsized and the Doria Roberts Band is the space-station band for the inferno meltdown. Justin Hale sends the event into orbit with an opening set. Earthstation Funk Ambassador, DJ Romeo Cologne, kicks the whole thang off as the aliens fill up on needed "Funk emissions" in order to continue their disco journey. Variety Playhouse (Smith)

SYLVAIN SYLVAIN, EL CAMINOS — A living legend of '70s punk, Sylvain once helped shape that tumultuous era as part of the New York Dolls. He still rocks hard today, as his recent guest appearances with several unreconstructed local punk bands attest. Tonight he shares the stage with one of 'em once again, the long-running El Caminos. Star Bar (Nicoll)

In his 1937 book The Road to Wigan Pier, author, journalist, and critic George Orwell quipped: "We may find in the long run that tinned food is a deadlier weapon than the machine-gun." It was a warning, essentially, that technology, no matter how much it makes life easier, also has an uncanny ability to strip away the essence of the human experience in ways that are difficult to detect before... | more...
