Sound Menu July 11 2001 Wed

AREA:ONE — The Summer of Love 2001 begins as the all-day, Moby-led eclectica electronica festival opens its run in Atlanta. Hometown heroes OutKast perform, preceded by performances from spastic funk-fried nu-metal group Incubus, the organic hip-hop of the Roots with Kelis and current songbird du jour Nelly Furtado. Over in the Focus Area, European superstar DJs including Paul Oakenfold and Carl Cox share the stage with American innovators such as Derrick May, spinning records till your head spins. HiFi Buys Amphitheatre (Ware)

CESARIA EVORA, RUBEN BLADES — Her cigarette and cognac-soaked voice has been compared to Billie Holiday's, and there's no doubt the word diva was invented for artists of this caliber. Still, this Cape Verde Islands singer didn't make her first album until she was 47. Now, a dozen years and six great albums later, she's finally in Atlanta, promoting her new Sao Vicente Di Longe. Actor/politician/salsa legend Ruben Blades opens. Chastain Park Amphitheatre (Falstaff)

HARICOT VERT, SOME SOVIET STATION — Hard-driving local post-punk quartet and Moodswing labelmates Some Soviet Station join indie-rock brethren as Haricot Vert dives into the second week of its Wednesday-nights-in-July residency. Star Bar (Sarig)

SPEEDBUGGY, INVISIBLE MEN — Cowpunk perps Speedbuggy gallop through a musical town where the horses have pierced noses, black leather saddles are worn by humans and animals alike, and spurs can be found on every part of the body. Just 'cause the punk-country thing has been done doesn't mean it ain't still fun. Like their horror movie namesake, the Invisible Men occasionally inspire a creepy, organ-flavored punk-rock scare. In its more unfortunately generic moments, however, this is an act that would be better seen than heard. Under the Couch (Hutchinson)
