See & Do



AUSTIN LOUNGE LIZARDS' DECATUR DEPOT BENEFIT -- Although the promoters are calling this a "Blues and Bluegrass" event, there will be plenty of rockin' when the hilarious Lizards take the stage. Decatur's streets will be blocked off for this fund raiser, and the music starts at 4 p.m. with a lineup that includes Cindy Lou Harrington & Showdown, Jan Smith, Hair of the Dog, Ray Chesna, Over the Wires and Cindy Craven. Proceeds will help restore the Depot. For more info, e-mail The Freight Room (Nicoll)

If you're still looking for some Italian drama after the end of last season's "Sopranos," check out the Atlanta Opera's next in queue. Verdi's UN BALLO IN MASCHERA, or "The Masked Ball," struggles with friendship, betrayal and unfulfilled love like any good opera should. Beginning on JUNE 7 and finishing up JUNE 9-10 it'll have to be your fix until next season's installment of romance and intrigue. $18-$126. The Fox Theatre, 660 Peachtree St. 404-817-8700.
