Sound Menu September 26 2001 Tues

TORI AMOS, RUFUS WAINWRIGHT — Amos' monochromatic, piano-ballad confessionals sound like the sort of sensitive, adolescent slush best left in one's teenage diary. Currently she's touring behind a new "all covers" album that includes (cough, cough) a Slayer tune (see Record Reviews). Enough said. On the bright side, Rufus Wainwright employs sweeping Tin Pan Alley, French cabaret and Broadway musical-style arrangements to showcase his wonderfully droll and literate pop songs. Fox Theatre (Robertson)

BUTTERFLY JONES, VENUS UMBRELLA — Featuring two ex-dada members, Butterfly Jones don't take themselves too seriously. Their chiming, melodic power pop with psychedelic overtones clicks in a Fountains of Wayne/Matthew Sweet way with snappy hooks and snappier lyrics. Wise alecks rule, especially when they write songs this memorable. The intriguingly named local openers are working on their debut album. Smith's Olde Bar (Horowitz)
