See & Do

FRIDAY 03.30


POSH DIGS, ROCK COACHES, ANNE-MARIE PERRY, PAUL MELANCON -- Reviving an early-'80s tradition of live music at the Nexus Gallery, the Contemporary presents its first "Local Salad" monthly showcase, curated by CL contributor Lee Smith. Posh Digs play their last show before the all-female quartet goes off to cut a debut album. The sweetly subversive Rock Coaches may give away toys and wreck part of the gallery. Anne-Marie Perry (of literate rock act Jane Ivy) performs some Ayn Rand-inspired tunes and Paul Melancon presents ultra-catchy too-pop-for-folk/too-folk-for-pop tunes. Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (Nicoll)
