Sound Menu September 19 2001 Sat

AMERICAN DREAM, GIRL CHRIS — While remaining fiercely indie, American Dream's have evolved into a multi-faceted organization, able to quiet a drunk and talkative crowd at The Earl and talented enough make a high-falutin' arts crowd stop and take notice. Girl Chris is former Insane Jane singer Yellow's new project. This "Girl" is a woman now, but thankfully she hasn't forgotten her punk roots. Echo Lounge (Smith)

DINAH'S DIVA DO — Atlanta's top cabaret singers, including Libby Whittemore, Robert Ray and Chandra Currelley, team up for a one-night-only show following the evening's performance of Dinah Was, starring Currelley. For information, call 404-733-5000. CenterSpace/Woodruff Arts Center (Sarig)

BOB DIPIERO — See listing for Fri., Sept. 21. Swallow at the Hollow (Hutchinson)

C AVERAGE — It's difficult to pay enough respect to fantasy-core duo, C Average. Their Tolkein-informed Brit-metal tongue rides the one tendril of flesh that marks the boundary between in-cheek and out. Put on your favorite ripped concert-T, park your car in the way back of the student parking lot, crank the push-button AM/FM and wig. Also performing, Raleigh-based Cherry Valence. The Earl (Hutchinson)

EMMA GIBBS BAND — Are they alt-country or jam band? Who gives a crap? Emma Gibbs Band crafts tunes with a homespun, basted-in-barbecue, Americana style that might even give you some patriotic goosebumps. This is a release party for their new CD, Out to the Country, was produced by John Keane (R.E.M., Widespread Panic). Smith's Olde Bar (Howard)

HAMZA EL DIN — See article, p. 193. Emory Performing Arts Studio (Kaliss)

GRACIE AND THE SLIPCOVERS, LOUISE MOSRIE — A country-rock band which doesn't skimp on either country or rock, Gracie and the Slipcovers have carved out a well-deserved niche for themselves. Pleasantly down-to-earth singer/songwriter Louise Mosrie opens the second of two shows. Eddie's Attic (Nicoll)

HOT AUGUST KNIGHTS, CADILLAC JONES — The Hot August boys are back to take one more punch at the wide-ranging repertoire of esteemed Monkees songwriter Neil Diamond. Sharing the bill are Cadillac Jones, the same feel-good rockers who helped close out the Knights' successful one-month residency at the Star Bar last February. Star Bar (Nicoll)

STEVIE NICKS — She's baaaaaack. The wine and cheesy atmosphere of Chastain must have resonated with the pop-rock diva, who just played here in July. This show is the same mix of solo and Mac hits with an emphasis on her recent release, although Nicks' persistent bronchitis problems — which have forced her to cancel more tour dates than Janet Jackson — might slow down all that twirling. Chastain Park Amphitheater (Horowitz)

99X BIGGER DAY OUT — See listing for Fri., Sept. 21. Hi-Fi Buys Amphitheatre (Madigan)

GLENN PHILLIPS — One of Atlanta's finest, most inventive and least recognized guitarists returns for one of his increasingly rare gigs. Mixing instrumental rock, jazz and far from snoozy New Age into a blistering concoction, the classy Phillips bends strings with the best of them. Both sets at 8 and 11:30 p.m. are with his full band, and are non-smoking, all-ages performances, so make it a family affair. Red Light Cafe (Horowitz)

SEKS — Resident Gene Carbonell and the Chamber continue their popular progressive-house night with a typically top-notch international DJ — in this case Nigel Dawson of the UK's Renaissance club night. Kevin O chills in the asylum. The Chamber (Ware)

TIGHT BRO'S FROM WAY BACK WHEN — The band with the coolest name in the biz kicks up a hailstorm of rowdy '70s metal with nods to way-back-when-ers such as the Alice Cooper band, MC5 and Thin Lizzy, sparked with pungent, whisky soaked AC/DC-styled vocals you can smell through the speakers. It's psycho-fueled, cock strutting blues rawk so unrelenting it makes Buckcherry sound like Grand Funk Railroad. The Earl (Horowitz)

GILLIAN WELCH & DAVID RAWLINGS — The surprise success of the O Brother soundtrack has shed more light on Gillian Welch (who co-produced and appeared on the album) than would have seemed possible in a music world overrun by rap-metal dullards and teen-pop pinups. While her songwriting can miss the mark, when it hits, Welch's take on bluegrass, folk, country and the blues is almost unbearably poignant. Her latest album, Time (The Revelator), is a low-key affair overrun with sadness and humor. She's touring with her consistent foil, David Rawlings. Variety Playhouse (Peisner)

HANK WILLIAMS III — The son of the son of the legend returns to town, and chances are you will get a sample of his dual musical personalities. Hank III is a punk rocker at heart, and recent performances have been split between his hardcore stuff and the classic twang. Masquerade (J. Kelly)
