Noted acts
COOL FOR AUGUST, YOUNG ANTIQUES — Tonight two very diverse rock bands come together to help out a good cause. Recent Atlanta residents Cool For August (99X artists of a moment ago) and the Young Antiques (currently one of this city’s best bands) play tonight to benefit the Save the Music Foundation, a VH-1 sponsored charity dedicated to building music instruction programs in schools. A silent auction of autographed goodies from Matchbox Twenty, Live and the Black Crowes precedes the show. Smith’s Olde Bar (Smith)
GOVERNMENT GROWN — Pulling together the somewhat disparate musical traditions of Jamaican rock steady and American jam rock, Government Grown achieves mixed results. Their Americanized reggae compositions lack a level of requisite authentic grit. The resulting product has an over-polished “Mario Brothers Jamaican bonus round” feel. Like most jam-oriented bands, however, their strength is said to be in live performance. Brandyhouse (Hutchinson)
