KOKA BOOTH AMPHITHEATRE—Ten acts and an undeniable cause: Have you got a better way to spend a Sunday? HopeFest is driven by the non-profit organization Beacon of Hope, which addresses the HIV/AIDS pandemic in sub-Saharan Africa and its savage impact on women and children. Among the performers who'll get people out to hear the message are Toad the Wet Sprocket leader and Nickel Creek collaborator Glen Phillips, Nashville-based pure-country singer Thad Cockrell, and from Nairobi (home of Beacon of Hope) Mavuno. Tickets are $10-$39 with kids under 12 in free. Gates open at 1:30 p.m. and the music starts at 10 p.m. —Rick Cornell

BULL CITY HEADQUARTERS—A thundering herd of Bull City heavies, Tooth's bludgeon is brisk and its vocals are vicious. Another notch in the increasingly proud belt of Southern metal, Tooth jabs eardrums like amplified jackhammers. The throb-and-lash of Savannah's Black Tusk makes a fine ally. Also, Gun Metal Black at 8 p.m. —Grayson Currin
