CELEBRATING A WORLD OF RHYTHM AND DANCE -- Community radio station WRFG and Georgia State team up to present the sounds of four continents. Local drum and dance troupe Africa Sogaye bring the exciting rhythms and movements of Guinea, while Samba Diallo presents dances from the Ivory Coast. Also performing: Emrah Kotan and Sultans, an ensemble of Turkish/Gypsy percussionists and belly dancers; Zero Taiko, which incorporates keyboards with Japanese taiko drumming; and the Georgia State University Percussion Ensemble, performing marimba music from Mexico and Guatemala.

DROWNING POOL, COAL CHAMBER -- Just in case you didn't already think Drowning Pool were a bunch of bad asses, their tour is now being sponsored by an alcohol company -- how very metal. Still riding the success of their dull single, "Bodies," the Dallas nu-metal quartet headlines the first Jagermeister Tour. Coal Chamber, the better band on the bill, plays grindcore with spooky melodies only found in '80s goth -- perhaps Napalm Death meets the Cure? Roxy (Jordan)

INDIGO GIRLS -- See Earshot, p. 91. Variety Playhouse (Smith)
