Live Review: These Are Powers, The Chap, Lyonnais, Balkans @ Eyedrum, March 24

By Julia Reidy “One of these things is not like the others” seemed to be the theme at Eyedrum last Tuesday night, as a four-band show sent the audience bouncing between acts from serious to kidding, ambient/noise to pop, hipster to humor. All Sesame Street lessons aside, the two local openers, Balkans and Lyonnais, approached […]

Live Review: Attention System/Entertainment/The Prids @ The Drunken Unicorn, March 23

[ 0 ] March 31, 2009 |

By Stephanie Roman It seemed fitting that both Attention System and Entertainment shared this evening’s stage with The Prids from Portland; Atlanta’s underground post-punk scene should be proud. These two local bands stand out as part of an exclusive and extremely talented pool of Atlanta musicians that also includes the hauntingly beautiful trio Feeding Fingers. […]

MAYOR OF PONCE: All That Twitter’s Isn’t Gold

[ 0 ] March 31, 2009 |

I'm beginning to like this whole Spring cleaning chore. Now let's move on towards the soul. Maybe someone should inquire what the rate at Cactus is for a bumper to bumper soul cleansing. I wrote this piece last summer at seemingly the height of annoyance of local promoters (selves included). The "Topless" party went away […]

The Hot RodsThe Hot Rods GlassMaster Records By Al Kaufman The Hot Rods is what they is. Basically, they're a bunch of Atlanta rednecks in black Harley shirts and tattoos who listened to the Ramones a lot. They like their women hot, their beer cold, and their cars fast. Unlike 2007's Super Sport, which gave equal […]

Maria Taylor LadyLuckNettwerk By Alexandra Edwards There's something about LadyLuck, Maria Taylor's third solo album, that makes you think she's trying to go more mainstream. Maybe it's the cover art: scrubbed up and featuring a close shot of Taylor's face, the title written in a girly cursive and adorned with flowers. It looks like it'd […]

  By Samantha A. Parvin Pendulum, the drum 'n' bass/rock/electronic four-piece from Perth, Australia, was an appropriate booking for a Wednesday night at Center Stage; there didn’t seem to be many “9 to 5-ers” in the crowd who would need to get up early on Thursday morning. Pendulum’s fan base is undeniably eclectic, and the […]
