AMG Weekend Picks: Emmylou Harris, The Whiskey Gentry, Archers of Loaf and More!

[ 0 ] July 21, 2011 |

Looks like that the brief respite from the unbearable heat last weekend was just that – brief. We’re plunging back into the unyielding mugginess. Thankfully there are some amazing gigs to keep you cool with AC, or at least keep you distracted with legendary tunes.

Friday, July 22 – Emmylou Harris at Atlanta Botanical Garden

The white-haired beauty proves that her years have led to more glorious tunes, poignant stories, heartbreaking melodies and a never-ending capturing presence. Tickets are SOLD OUT so we hope you got yours early.

SOLD OUT
