What to do in Atlanta: Music | March 30-April 6

This week, you can see performances by an "American Idol," a Go-G0 and some guys who've been through the desert on a horse with no name. Kris Allen takes the stage at Eddie's Attic, Belinda Carlisle headlines Center Stage and America rides into Atlanta Symphony Hall. Atlanta hosts some guitar greats over the coming week, too, with six-string wizardry from Robin Trower, Ry Cooder and Ace Frehley.
