Sound Menu August 26 2000 Thur


?Noted Acts?

BLUE JAYS, AMY PIKE, HERITAGE CHERRY — The Jays are a wonderful new country/rockabilly band featuring Jay Murphree and Kat Cunningham from Poor Little Fools. Amy Pike will perform new original alt-country tunes "and a couple of jazzy covers," with her former Continentals bandmate Mike Hammer on drums and Kerry Sanders (wife of Tore Up's Stuart Sanders) on bass. Also on the bill is Shannon Tanner's easygoing rock band, Heritage Cherry. Echo Lounge (Nicoll)

DQE, HUBCAP CITY, JUDSON HENRY — DQE, sometimes known as Dairy Queen Empire, will serve up a double scoop of their frosty weirdness tonight. Your waitress will be Grace Braun and she'll take good care of ya, hun. Bill Taft will be at the grill cookin' up some unusual uses for duct tape when he opens his trunk full of oddities and brings his Hubcap City project to life. Judson Henry completes this night of inventive songwriting and outcast ruminations. Star Bar (Smith)

LIZ MELENDEZ — Fully recovered from the bout of laryngitis that sidelined her for a while, bluesrocker Melendez is back in action. She's also been working on her debut CD, which will now include two live cuts from one of her smokin' stage performances. Darwin's/Marietta (Nicoll)

RYE COALITION, BLACK MOLLIES, DALEK — A varied bill featuring experimental hip-hop group Dalek, local heavy rockers the Black Mollies and New Jersey aggro-punkers Rye Coalition. The Earl (Sarig)

SISTER SEVEN, ISAAC CURRY — Hailing from Austin, Tex., this former jam band has transformed into a slick, pop-rock outfit with considerable VH1 hit-potential. True to form the lyrics tend toward reflexive preciousness, and the musical backdrop is pure adult alternative (meaning when they rock out, it's with measured consideration rather than reckless abandon). Still, singer Patrice Pike has a powerful voice, which could make them the next big thing, for those so inclined to watch for such things. Local five-piece Isaac Curry have a new CD of dramatic modern rock called Fear & Desire; they open the show. Smith's Olde Bar (Robertson)

WOMEN OF MP3 TOUR — Eddie's welcomes the first of a two-night local stand for the nationally touring female fest. Tonight, the always-enjoyable singer/songwriter Amanda Garrigues (from Gainesville, Fla.) returns to the Attic, her home away from home, to join Atlantans Greta Lee, Nillah, Weaklazyliar and Salamander Tales for a long evening of the most requested songs from the artists' MP3 file sites. Sure to generate some hits. Showtime is 8 p.m. Eddie's Attic (Smith)

WU-TANG CLAN — Publicity on this tour has been suprisingly scarce, which doesn't bode well for how smoothly this multi-rapper live show is executed on stage. If it's another one of those "concerts" with dozens of guys milling around on stage, yelling randomly into mics while a DAT rolls, don't bother. But if the Wu-Tang can get the most talented and/or insane members of their clan (Method Man, Genius, Raekwon, Ol' Dirty Bastard, etc.) to put on a real performance, this could be a night of true musical mayhem. Tabernacle (Sarig)
