Sound Menu June 13 2001 Sat

BORN TO PLEASE, BOSS — Born To Please's racket is punk in the purest sense and rock with a vengeance. Their take-no-prisoners delivery, aided with a delightfully destructive attitude, should be a perfect counterpoint to Boss' self-described "trench rock." 9 Lives Saloon (Smith)

CANDELA, CATFIGHT! — Duluth's humble sports bar will never be the same after two of Atlanta's sassiest all-female bands venture outside the Perimeter tonight to mess with suburbia. Candela's full-frontal hard rock attack should be the perfect chaser for Catfight!'s punky and perky pummeling. Sports Time Bar/Duluth (Smith)

GUY CLARK — He is the grand old man of Texas singer/songwriters, and the subtle power of his lyrics is unmatched. Clark's deadpan between-song banter is hilarious and poignant at times, and his delivery is understated but captivating. Prepare for an evening of intimate soul baring. Variety Playhouse (Kelly)

MAJORITY RULE — There's a semi-new strain of crushing rock on the rise that takes the visceral intensity of extreme forms of metal, strips away excess nonsense and injects a sober element of pummeling hardcore. American record labels such as Neurot and Hydra Head provide plenty of evidence of the power of this stuff. Virginia's Magic Bullet has issued the latest discs by the groups on this bill and boy do they smoke. Under the Couch/Ga. Tech (Foy)

MOTHER'S FINEST, WET WILLIE BAND, FREAK THE JONES, SEXXY CIRKUS — Featuring a bill of young and old regional acts of the funky and wanna-be-funky variety, this show benefits Camp Sunshine's programs for Georgia children with cancer. Tabernacle (Sarig)

SCIENCE FRICTION 2001 — Flavourset Productions improve upon last year's "Science Friction 2000.5" by bringing in a nu_breed of DJ, Miami's George Acosta, to augment their already impressive stable of local talent, including DJs Brett Long, Kieran, Eric Zheno, Brian Dotson and J-Luv. Expect a night of progressive and deep house with art displays, complimentary cuisine by selected local restaurants and a fashion show by Wayne Van Nuygen and Click. The Contemporary (Ware)

JOHN SCOFIELD — Whether playing rubbery funk or straight-ahead jazz, electric guitarist Scofield — a veteran of Miles Davis' mid-'80s bands and a solo artist for 25 years — approaches his art with professional eclecticism. One of the genre's true six-string stylists who doesn't resort to ostentatious fusion riffing to make his point, Scofield remains a class act, an astoundingly talented musician and a stylistic chameleon whose sound remains diverse yet individualistic. EarthLink Live (Horowitz)

STEREOMUD, FLYBANGER, ENDO — See Stereomud in Earshot, p. 89. Flybanger — a throwback to the days of straightforward, metal-edged crunch-and-wail rock — smashes the asphalt like an obese skydiver with a faulty chute. The thrash/rapcore of Miami's Endo also is familiar, but in a less nostalgic, more derivative kind of way. While the energy and chops are there, Endo has the tendency to sound like an amalgam of 311, Rage, Bizkit, etc. Masquerade (Hutchinson)

ULTRABABYFAT — Atlanta's pop-rock survivors return in between their mini-Southeastern club tour and a support slot on the Warped Tour for a hometown show. They're supporting their long-awaited new release, Eight Balls in Reverse, which finds the band re-energized and stronger than ever. Star Bar (Sarig)

LARRY JON WILSON, GOVE SCRIVENER — Here's a rare opportunity to cross trails with two nearly legendary singer-songwriters. Across his 30-year career, Larry Jon Wilson has attracted a devoted fanbase that includes John Prine, Townes Van Zandt and Kris Kristofferson. Gove Scrivener is a contemporary of Emmylou Harris, and he has performed on recordings with Dolly Parton, Neil Young and Glen Campbell. Eddie's Attic(Nicoll)
