Bulletin Board May 16 2001

Revenge of the nerds. If you think you know music trivia, Rhino Records gives you a chance to prove it by taking the RMAT 2001, a multiple-choice spoof of the SATs covering all genres except classical. Test-takers compete for prizes and the crown of "Geekus Musicus Maximus." The test is held in 10 Tower stores around the world, including Atlanta's Lenox location, Thurs., May 17, at 6:30 p.m.

Come out swinging. Borders books has narrowed the playing field to two Atlanta bands, one of which will end up on a soon-to-be-nationally-released Jazz You Must Own Vol. II compilation. Rio Negro and the Will Culbreath Project duke it out for the privilege Sat., May 19, at 7:30 p.m. at (where else?) Borders Buckhead, 3637 Peachtree Road.

The full line-up for On The Bricks, the free Friday-night concerts this summer in Centennial Olympic Park, has been announced. Along with mid-level alt-rockers and almost-headliners such as Better Than Ezra and Tantric, openers include locals such as the Brand New Immortals, Modern Hero, the Tender Idols, Josh Joplin Band and Drive-By Truckers.
