WHO: The Sundogs

WHAT: ROCK MY SOUL: The pedal steel takes a back seat on the Sundogs' (below) new disc, "Instrument of Change." There's more hard-rocking crunch and less twang in this Atlanta combo's sound these days. The Black Crowes in their souls and the Mississippi blues in their hearts loom much larger than the gentler specter of country. That's just fine, because the Sundogs are a whole lotta fun when they crank the amps up to 11. Get a free copy of the new album with paid admission. With the Liabilities.

THE 411: 8 p.m. $12; $10 advance. Smith's Olde Bar, 1578 Piedmont Ave. N.E., Midtown. 404-875-1522, www.smithsoldebar.com
