Sound Menu September 26 2001 Sun

AGENT ORANGE — Veterans of the punk scene that also spawned X and Black Flag, fiery California trio Agent Orange remains a searing force to be reckoned with. Led by guitarist/vocalist Mike Palm, they blast out classics such as "Bloodstains" with a level of intensity and purposefulness that puts most younger punk acts to shame. You're never too old to learn from a master, and Palm remains one of the most impressive guitarists in this entire genre. Masquerade (Nicoll)

ATLANTA ROCKS — See Earshot, p. 91. First Existential Congregation (Smith)

BAND TOGETHER — Mars Music stores in Atlanta, Marietta and Gwinnett join the 45 other Mars locations nationwide to hold simultaneous fund raisers to benefit the United Way's September 11th Fund. Local bands perform 5-8 p.m. For lineups, call the individual Mars store. Mars Music/Atlanta, Marietta, Gwinnett (Sarig)

REGINA BELLE — Straight from the "where-is-she-now" bin, Belle's slick, sophisticated R&B hit the urban adult contemporary charts in the late '80s, but she's kept a low profile recently with only her theme from Disney's Aladdin creating chart ripples. Regardless, she's a classy soul diva with a powerful voice and a substantial repertoire. Seeing her in this intimate club oughta create some love-connections in the audience. Taboo (Horowitz)

CHIEDZA — Fast-rising local acoustic soulster Chiedza performs with other guests in a fund raiser for the American Red Cross. Apache Cafe (Sarig)

HARVEST MUSIC FESTIVAL — The third and final day of the fourth annual autumn weekend of camping, jamming and roots music gets under way at 11:30 a.m. On the main stage: Geoff Achison & the Soul Diggers (11:30 a.m.); Railroad Earth (1 p.m.); John Hartford Tribute (2:20 p.m.); the Overtakers (3 p.m.); Preston Frank & Donna the Buffalo (5:30 p.m.). For more information, visit www.tdawgsproductions.com. Also see Earshot, p. 91. Atlanta's Back Porch (Sarig)

INCUBUS — Incubus is about to define the rest of its career. With the highly anticipated release of Morning View next month and a true headlining tour, this schizophrenic group of funk/jazz/metal/techno crooners has a lot to prove. We'll see if they've succumbed to the success of Make Yourself and deliver an album full of MTV-neutered "Drive" clones, or will they take the path less traveled. Even money says it will be a mix of everything to date, with a few surprises thrown in. No matter what, as a live band, they have few peers. Tabernacle (Kohler)

CHRIS KNIGHT, PAT HANEY — They may not be familiar names, but both of these fellows deserve more attention. Two hard-edged singer/songwriters in the Steve Earle vein who have a way with words and melody. Insightful music, perfect for these times. See Chris Knight in Record Reviews, p. 97. Smith's Old Bar (J. Kelly)

JIMMY LANDRY — Roving troubadour Landry celebrates the release of his new CD, Life is Good. The North Carolina singer/songwriter recently spearheaded the formation of the Independent Songwriters Group, a new label that also features Christine Kane. Landry's pure but unsentimental approach to folk is appealing and his live performances are refreshingly lighthearted. Eddie's Attic (Smith)

SISTERS IN SPIRIT — Top female gospel acts — including legend Shirley Ceasar, contemporary favorites Yolanda Adams and Mary Mary, and up-and-coming group Virtue — bring their popular package tour back on the road. The Atlanta stop, which features comedians in addition to the singers, will be filmed for future release. Civic Center (Sarig)
