ALBERTA ADAMS -- Hailing from Detroit, Adams toured in the '40s and '50s with the likes of Roy Eldridge and Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, and recorded now-prized sides for Chess Records. Four marriages, three children and three stepchildren later, Adams has returned to record two CDs for the recently defunct Cannonball Records. Look for a mix of jump blues, New Orleans R&B and funky blues. Blind Willie's (Powell)

THE PARTY OF HELICOPTERS, JON FINLEY, RIZZUDO -- See Party of Helicopters article, p. 73. Brought to town by Stickfigure Distribution, Jon Finley, the former drummer of headliners Party of Helicopters, opens for his previous band with his blues-meets-beats take on an atmospheric one-man-band. Atlanta's own Rizzudo is a highly calculated math rock band made of three brothers. Imagine an Irish Rush. The Earl (Ware)

SISTER HAZEL, CHUCK CARRIER -- Sister Hazel, the overwrought, undercooked and way-past-their-expiration date jam band from Gainesville, Fla., headlines this frat-friendly evening that also features a solo set from Marathon leader Chuck Carrier. Sold out. Smith's Olde Bar (Smith)
