By Scott Roberts One of the busiest and most beloved bands on the local Atlanta scene during the 1990s was Wild West Picture Show. Their ahead-of-the curve blend of country, rock, and punk influences never failed to please crowds and fill bars and clubs in the metro area and beyond. After more than a decade […]
By Jim Simpson Rosanne Cash made a stop at Agnes Scott College in the midst of a whirlwind book tour behind her already critically acclaimed memoir, Composed. (The book entered the New York Times Best Seller list at #20, eight days after publication.)
By Giles Turnbull If you turned up at Drinkshop hoping to hear some dub hardcore Hawaiian, as Lauris Vidal describes his music on his MySpace, or the slightly more laid back, chilled out vibe of the songs actually on said website, then you might have been a little surprised.
– Dead Confederate are streaming their new album, Sugar, here right now. Check it out and then go see them play their in-store at Criminal Records on Sunday, where you can get the CD and get it signed. – In other awesome Georgia people news, Cee-Lo just released a video for his new song, “F*ck […]
Scissor Sisters Night Work Downtown Music/Polydor By Leila Regan-Porter New York City’s Scissor Sisters is one of those bands that is just hugely popular overseas. The group joins the formidable list that includes the likes of The Strokes, White Stripes, The Killers, Kelis and Kings of Leons – all American artists that blew up in […]
– The Ting Tings have put up a new song, “Hands,” on their Facebook page for all their fans to listen to (you must “like” the band first in order to be able to listen). It’s a bit more moody than their debut, but still oozes fun, just in a more ’80s, Duran Duran kinda […]

– The fabulous Jasmine Guy is joining Atlanta’s True Colors Theatre Company full time, as an actress and director for the upcoming season.

Atlanta’s “Midtown Mile” is really coming into its own. Chic stores, fab restaurants, people actually walking everywhere – just like a real city! And to celebrate just how far Peachtree Street and its offshoots have come in the past few years, Midtown Atlanta is throwing the first annual free Midtown Festival of the Arts this […]
Arcade Fire The Suburbs Merge By Al Kaufman Arcade Fire is the most popular band on the planet right now. They didn’t get there by being subtle. Their wildly popular Neon Bible was their grandiose statement concerning the political climate circa 2006 (hint: they didn’t like it). Funeral, well let’s just say it was rather […]
Ed Harcourt Lustre Piano Wolf Recordings By Scott Roberts “It’s not easy to be happy and get way with it,” sings Ed Harcourt on “Haywired,” the second song on his winning new CD Lustre, but somehow he seems to have found a way to do both. On his fifth full-length release, and the first on […]

By Jim Simpson, photos by Ashlee-Jean Trott Lissy Rosemont came back home on Friday, literally and figuratively. The Atlanta native and current D.C. resident recalled coming to Eddie’s Attic as a child with her father, a local fixture on the Bluegrass scene years ago — and here she was headlining.
