Sue Foley, and Teddy Morgan: Foley's sound falls somewhere between the stone blues and Bonnie Raitt's stylish R&B; Morgan's a rowdy swinger of impeccable taste. The sublime guitarists/songwriters are touring behind Walk in the Sun and Louisiana Rain, their new, respective discs for Austin, Texas-based Antone's Records, and in celebration of that label's recently inked distribution deal with Warner Music subsidiary Discovery Records, which promises to raise the profile of both Antone's and the artists in its stable. Good news, all around. Showtime is 9 p.m. Sunday, September 29, at the Rhythm Room, 1019 East Indian School. The cover is $6. Call 265-4842.

Arizona Cardinals: Head coach Vince Tobin and his NFL redbirds play the St. Louis Rams at 1 p.m. Sunday, September 29, at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe.

Bad Livers: The late father of bluegrass, Bill Monroe, would have disavowed this psychotic 'grass trio--or would he have? Actually, the Texas threesome occasionally strikes a note that sounds as if it were shot right out of the Monroe canon, but, in spirit, former Killbilly members Danny Barnes and Mark Rubin and their compatriot Ralph White come across like the Holy Modal Rounders with, well, three Rounders instead of two. The Livers also seem to have inherited the Rounders' gift for inspired headings. Our favorite album by the '60s duo is Moray Eels Eat the Holy Modal Rounders; check out these song titles from Bad Livers' latest disc, Horses in the Mines: "Shot at a Bird, Hit Me a Stump," "Clawhammer Fish," "Puke Grub" and "High, Lonesome, Dead and Gone." Flathead shares the bill. Showtime is 9 p.m. Monday, September 30, at the Rhythm Room, 1019 East Indian School. The cover is $5. For details call 265-4842.

James Magee: The El Paso-based artist, phantom of the town dump in nearby Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, creates "somber, high reliefs" and "evolutionary" sculpture out of found urban detritus and "substances like crankcase oil, rust and paprika." Chef Magee then crowns his concoctions with titles that are, in essence, lengthy, freeform poems that skew history in sometimes alarming, sometimes charming ways; on the charming side, check out Magee's funny, touching "Duchess of Alba" correspondence. Redefining the term "interactive art," Magee presents a free reading of his nom de plumage at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, October 1, at Arizona State University Art Museum at Nelson Fine Arts Center, Tenth Street and Mill, on the ASU campus in Tempe. The event is held in conjunction with the museum's display of the installation "James Magee: Books, Boxes, Texts, Videos," which includes the aforementioned "Duchess" letters and which continues through Sunday, January 5, 1997. For viewing hours and other information, see the Art Exhibits listing or call 965-2787.

The Melvins: The band from Washington state is probably best known for being born in Kurt Cobain's hometown of Aberdeen and for providing a young, pre-Nirvana Kurt with gainful employment as a roadie. As deeply as the Melvins influenced Cobain and other area musicians--like, pointedly, those in Mudhoney--they remain almost completely unknown outside the Seattle orbit. Still, if you're a fan of grungy sludge--or the reverse--you're in for a slime-covered treat. Showtime is 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, October 2, at the Mason Jar, 2303 East Indian School. Tickets are $7 in advance, $8 the day of the show, available at Ticketmaster. For details call 956-6271 or 784-4444.

Samaritan Wheelchair Suns: The National Wheelchair Basketball Association franchise takes on a team comprising chair-bound Arizona celebrities in the 13th annual "Big Wigs Versus Big Wheels" exhibition match. It starts at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, October 2, in the gymnasium at Mesa High School, 1630 East Southern. Tickets are $3, $1.50 for students and kids; proceeds benefit students with disabilities. Call 644-2396.
