AMG Weekend Picks: Little Tybee, Indigo Girls, The Dalai Lama and More!

[ 0 ] October 14, 2010 |

We’ve got quite a lineup this weekend. Hometown heroes returning to Atlanta, up-and-coming acts, a legendary beer festival, and the Dalai Lama. That’s quite a lot to live up to, Georgia.

Thursday, October 14 – Little Tybee, Cousin Dan at Star Bar

Team Luis presents another great free Thursday night lineup, with Atlanta’s increasingly-popular indie folksters Little Tybee heading the bill.

Friday, October 15 – Indigo Girls at Buckhead Theatre

Georgia’s most famous female duo returns for a hometown gig at Buckhead Theatre.

Saturday, October 16 – The Decatur Craft Beer Festival at The Old Courthouse Square

If you are a fan of beer, we hope you got your ticket for this epic sold-out beer festival that gets attention from all over the country. Add to that some of the best food around this area, and some great music, and you’re got a winning day.

Saturday, October 16 – Carnivores at The EARL

Atlanta’s own Carnivores continue to wow with their impressive mix of psychedelic garage rock, lo-fi tropicalia, lounge and more. They play with Woven Bones
The Coathangers  and The So So Glos.

Sunday, October 17 – H. H. Dalai Lama at Woodruff PE Center

Sunday marks the first in a series of panel discussions with the Dalai Lama at Emory University. The Summit On Happiness will feature “Speaking of Faith”‘s Krista Tippett moderating a panel including Episcopal Bishop Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks and George Washington University Professor Seyyed Hossein Nasr. Yes, it might sound like the beginning of a joke (the Dalai Lama, the Bishop, the Rabbi and the Islam scholar), but this sold out event is sure to be a pretty momentous occasion. You can still get tickets for the other Dalai Lama events.
