WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27

comment
GLASSCANDY AND THE SHATTERED THEATRE, BLACK MAN WHITE MAN DEAD MAN, ELECTROSLEEP INTERNATIONAL, SUBTONIX -- Glass Candy singer Ida No's terminal glamour -- like an ultra-young Siouxsie Sioux from back before goth was just another convenient tag -- suits her bands simplistic primal rhythm quite well. The purposefully opprobrious Black Man White Man Dead Man is all raw screams and ugly churning. Local troublemakers Electrosleep International and San Francisco all-girl punk/new wave outfit Subtonix also perform. Call 404-522-4257 for more info. Squaresville/695 Woodward Ave. (Foy)

BONEY JAMES, JEFF LORBER -- Smooth jazz doesn't get much smoother than this double bill of accomplished fuzak musicians whose sweet, soulful and slightly funky sounds are a perfect compliment to the atmosphere of the venue. With all the talking and eating, those who want to actually listen to James' sassy reed work and Lorber's keyboards are advised to bring a CD player with headphones. Chastain Park Amphitheater (Horowitz)

JOURNEY, PETER FRAMPTON, JOHN WAITE -- Go back and re-read the Styx, Bad Company, Billy Squier blurb in the June 21 listing, except: 1) substitute Steve Perry for Dennis DeYoung and mullet/sideburns for robot; 2) (now we're stretching it here, but ...) substitute Peter Frampton for Bad Company, add in guitar and take out that crooning bit about Paul Rodgers; 3) read the next sentence, but put in the "I wanna fuck you" talkbox moment from the live version of "Do You Feel Like I Do?"; 4) finally, substitute John Waite for Billy Squier, "Missing You" for "The Stroke," and the rest fits with a little imagination. That's what the promoters must have thought, surely. (See also Journey in Record Reviews, p. 87). HiFi Buys Amphitheatre (Trammell)

JUNCTION 18 -- Flying low on the commercial radar, Junction 18 has the kind of ear-friendly melodic punk vocals and mid-tempo momentum that have made household names out of groups like Blink-182 and Green Day. It'll be interesting to see if this punk act goes the route of street cred or Club Med. Under the Couch (Hutchinson)ANDALUZ: Duo Latino
