– The Coathangers celebrate their “Live at The EARL” 7-inch, where else, at the EARL on November 26, with support from All Night Drug Prowling Wolves and Wolves and Jackals. – The Selmanaires are one member less, at least for a while, as bassist Tommy Chung is moving to New York. He played his last […]
Sorry No Ferrari Ternary Stickfigure Recordings By Eric Chavez In case you create a band that uses absolutely no lyrics or vocals, period, in your records, there is only one thing to do: create an instrumental album to rock the senses. That is just what Sorry No Ferrari does on their debut full-length LP Ternary. […]
– The Great Purple One known as Prince announced yesterday that he will be embarking on a huge tour soon, and among those stylish girls and guys who will be joining him (like Sheila E.) is our very own Janelle Monae. He’ll start off the jaunt with a residence in New York, which is fine, […]
– If you haven’t heard by now, Atlanta might just have a new hometown hero. Rapper/jail bird T.I. helped talk a man off the ledge of a building in Midtown yesterday afternoon. Atlanta Magazine’s ATL Intel blog has more on the story, with reactions from T.I. and the Atlanta Police Department. – Al Pacino is […]
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.

– We’ve missed having Cornershop around. With their disco-plus-Asian sounds mixed in with the hip indie rock of the day, they have always been refreshing and eager to please. So we’re glad to hear they are releasing more music following 2009’s Judy Sucks A Lemon For Breakfast on November 2 (The Battle of New Orleans […]
By David Courtright For one who has never seen a band like The National live, the pre-show speculation can be vast and sundry. How can a band who makes music like they do pull it off live? What works with their sound is their slow, pleading malaise. They craft slow-burn songs out of a deep […]
Weapons of Audio Bipolar Unsigned By Eric Chavez If there is one thing you cannot do, it’s define what kind of sound that Weapons of Audio have created for their album Bipolar. There’s a little hip-hop, some electronica, a bit of pop, some rap, even a little slice of blues. With all these sounds, does the […]
The Vampire Diaries Original TV Soundtrack Virgin Records By Ellen Eldridge “Love Sucks” emanates from within layered musical images as the soundtrack for “Vampire Diaries” plays. The idea of pale, bloodsucking walkers of the night is so reminiscent of high school; the torments of pressure to live on even after you feel the cold acceptance […]
Review and photos by Ellen Eldridge The light sifted through heavy fog as Dead Confederate quietly took the stage. No dramatic rush on stage; the men just walked on, picked up their instruments and started playing. Quietly. The effect on the audience was the same as the attention brought on by whispering in a crowded […]
The Sword Warp Riders Kemado Records By Al Kaufman There’s something about metal and fantasy. Gods, Norsemen, and epic battles seem to be the perfect stories to tell in front of crunching guitars.
The Electric Six stopped in to play at The EARL last Saturday as part of their tour with The Constellations. The Constellations always draw well in Atlanta, and this night was no exception. Their enthusiastic hometown crowd was augmented by all those Atlanta area Youtube junkies that just can’t stop queuing up Electric Six videos. […]
