FRI/NOVEMBER 10
Noted acts
BENEFIT FOR THE GEORGIA COUNCIL ON CHILD ABUSE — A gaggle of Eddie’s all-stars contribute to a benefit tonight for the Georgia Council on Child Abuse, a nonprofit organization. Performers include Michelle Malone, Uncle Mark Reynolds, Doria Roberts, Greg Williams, Lauren Fincham, Susan Lewis-Wright, Diana Jones and some surprise guests. During the first two hours all ages will be admitted, then Eddie will round up all the kids and the show will continue for the older folks. Eddie’s Attic (Smith)
COWBOY MOUTH — A staple of the 99X set, consummate New Orleans modern rockers Cowboy Mouth are one of those “almost-mainstream” acts that has teetered on the brink of commercial explosion for years, most recently with the release of their upbeat (if occasionally corny) seventh album, Easy. Their two-night stint at the Roxy represents 50 percent of a special four-concert tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of the band. Roxy (Hutchinson)
DAVID GRISMAN QUINTET — See article. Variety Playhouse (Kelly)
5-8, HEAVY JOHNSON TRIO, THE HIGHWATERS — An evening meant to rock ‘n’ roll you into a stupor, tonight’s lineup of veteran musicians should put a dumb smile on anyone’s face. One of the longest lasting Athens bands, 5-8 is still a force to be reckoned with. Their recent shows have been more powerful than performances of a decade ago. The Heavy Johnson Trio are an insane posse of clowning pranksters and the perfect foil for 5-8’s carnival of chaos and the intensity of NYC’s Highwaters. The Earl (Smith)
THE KING’S NOYSE — Mixing the Renaissance with Baroque, the sacred with secular, string ensemble King’s Noyse hold court at Clayton College and State University. Spivey Hall (Ware)
MUTABARUKA, TONY REBEL, NATTI LOVE JOYS — An excellent bill of international and local reggae: Dub poet Mutabaruka is second only to Linton Kwesi Johnson in his reputation for delivering the heavy spiritual/political goods in his spoken reggae raps; Tony Rebel is a Jamaican roots-reggae legend in his own right; and local band the Natti Love Joys have long secured their place as the top reggae group in the city. The Atrium (Sarig)
REBIRTH BRASS BAND — See listing for Nov. 9. Smith’s Olde Bar (Hutchinson)
REHAB, EL PUS, SCIENZ OF LIFE — See Rehab article. Opening are local live hip-hop pop-stars El Pus and recent New York transplants, rap duo Scienz of Life. Masquerade (Baraka)
TEEN IDOLS — Good old-fashioned punk rock has always had a playful side. Nashville’s Teen Idols tap into the “Beat on the Brat” ethic with impressive musicality. Songs like their sparkling tribute to prison optimism, “Every Day Is Saturday (When You’re Doing Time),” pull together punk’s urgent momentum with glossy Beach Boys-style harmonic beauty. The effect is an unlikely combination of ’50s wholesomeness and late ’70s rebellion — one malt, too straws and a knuckle sandwich. 513 Club (Hutchinson)
WEBB WILDER — It’s no surprise that the wildly eclectic Nashville-based Wilder whose covers — and influences — range from the British Invasion rock of the Small Faces to the Americana roots of Waylon Jennings to the trashy garage nuggets of the 13th Floor Elevators and the Music Machine, hasn’t found major acclaim. But even without an album for five years, he’s maintained a dedicated local cult following who enjoy Wilder’s extended, and often outrageous, between-tune stories mixed with his jittery surf, swamp-rock, country, rockabilly gumbo. The Elvis-ized Star Bar is the perfect venue for him. Star Bar (Horowitz)
