BAGHOUSE, HEMOGLOBIN, PATRICK FLAKE/KEBBI WILLIAMS/ROGER RUZOW/JOHN BOWMAN/PETER HICKEY QUINTET — Athens duo Baghouse rely heavily on textured rhythms, utilizing not only their prime instrumentation of bass and drums, but loops and samples, as well. The Patrick Flake, Kebbi Williams, Roger Ruzow, John Bowman and Peter Hickey quintet should be well worth checking out. These players have been associated with Gold Sparkle Band, Brahvar Large Ensemble, Samadha Trio and the Flakes. Eyedrum (Khalid)

THE BEATNUTS, ARSONISTS, GREG NICE — Forget Seagram. Real hip-hop lands tonight, with former Jungle Brothers producers The Beatnuts dropping science alongside Chicago crew the Arsonists. Greg Nice, late of Nice and Smooth (remember "Sometimes I Rhyme Slow"?) emerges as well. Local DJ T'Challa spins. Masquerade (Whitaker)

KRISTEN HALL, CYNTHIA CATANIA — Beloved Decatur folk scene fixture Kristen Hall celebrates the release of her Live At Eddie's Attic CD. The album is a great snapshot of an artist at her creative peak, performing before her worshipful followers. Pop, alternative and Americana songwriter Cynthia Catania, who was a featured vocalist on HBO's "The Larry Sanders Show," opens the show. Eddie's Attic (Smith)

LIL JON & THE EASTSIDE BOYZ — Decatur's Confederate-flag draping, dreadlock-wearing rap/shouter slides back home for a night on his national tour supporting the Boyz' new Put Yo Hood Up. Rough going and strictly for the inarticulate, Lil Jon's dirty-South grind is the perfect soundtrack for a summer party where the air-conditioner's broke but the cheap wine still flows. Kaya (Sarig)

METROSCENE, LIFT — Southern Brit-poppers Metroscene have been touring while writing new material. As they unveil some new songs, expect a healthy dose of tunes from their outstanding First Light At Last Orders album as well. Lift leader Molly Bancroft and her band, who have been in the studio recently, also are promising a sneak preview of some new material. Echo Lounge (Smith)

OZZFEST — Whether it's to see if Marilyn Manson squirts blood from his fanny or if Sabbath dips into obscure monoliths like "The Writ," most kids likely know what they're going to the Ozzfest for (the main stage also features Papa Roach, Crazy Town, Linkin Park and Slipknot; see Show 'n' Tell with Slipknot, p. 87). It probably ain't the pre-noon, major-label hopefuls. Finding a gem amidst the mass of unknowns clogging up the first half of the day seems as thankless as dissecting the minute differences between the nu-metal acts in the second half. Do yourself a favor and sit in front of the metal karaoke instead — it's funny as hell and twice as sincere. HiFi Buys Amphitheatre (Foy)

PANDIT HARI PRASAD CHAURASIA — This fundraiser for the nonprofit Child Relief and You (CRY), which supports poor children in India, features a flute concert by acclaimed master of bansuri (Indian bamboo flute), Pandit Hari Prasad Chaurasia. For more information, call 770-690-0692. Roswell Cultural Arts Center/950 Forrest St. (Sarig)

ROCK*A*TEENS, RED LEVEL ELEVEN, HUBCAP CITY — The Rock*A*Teens raise noise to a true art with a reverb-soaked Southern gothic vibe so powerful you'll half expect the ghost of Flannery O'Connor to step from inside the mass of ectoplasm and Dunch grits hovering above their drum kit. It's all in celebration of the second anniversary of the East Atlanta Restaurant & Lounge. Rounding out the bill are Red Level Eleven (whose sound goes to, well, 11) and Hubcap City, the bizarre performance-art duo led by Bill Taft of Jody Grind and Smoke fame. The Earl (Nicoll)

TRUCKADELIC'S FAREWELL SHOW — The thunderin' dieselbilly dudes of Truckadelic have decided to put their act up on cinderblocks in the back yard for a well-deserved retirement, but not before they take one last blast through their wild repertoire of crazed country-punk tunes. For years, these drunken rowdies have consistently staged the most unhinged performances ever seen in Little Five. It's therefore reasonable to expect that tonight's set will be legendary — perhaps even mythic. Star Bar (Nicoll)

URBAN SHAKEDANCERS, TONOHONEY — Who better to celebrate the 11-year anniversary of Smith's Olde Bar than the Urban Shakedancers? One of the club's most popular headliners, the 'Dancers have re-united for the event (with a lineup that includes original members Robert Paige, Mike Williams, Bill Edwards and Randy Chapman) to bring their mixture of energetic rock and funky-white-boy grooves back to where it's been best received. Heavy-duty blues-based rockers Tonohoney open. Smith's Olde Bar (Nicoll)
