Happy Wednesday Atlanta! I like Wednesdays, they make me feel like the week is almost over, but also it usually means the start to a great lineup of good tunes coming to town. Tonight, for your aural pleasures, I introduce you to your Wednesday night events.
–Beautiful Little Fools bring a fresh blend of indie-Americana, merging classic country sounds with power pop and other elements of today’s best independent music. Each song has a unique voice with comparisons being drawn to the Tennessee Three, Mountain Goats, Ryan Adams, and Elliott Smith. Joining them tonight at The Earl is Nashville’s finest, Andrew Combs and Athens’ answer to Golden Smog, The Jayhawks, Wilco, and even Ween, The Granfalloons.
–Bernadette Seacrest (photo above) is a modern day Renaissance woman. Having at one time worked as a sometimes fetish model, makeup artist and clothing designer for the iconic clothing/shoe company Nana; She now embodies the sultry jazz chanteuse with a dirty south flair . Don’t miss her Bernadette and her bassist Kris Dale tonight at Eddie’s Attic.
-Philly based hip-hoppers, Chiddy Bang, debut mixtape entitled ‘The Swelly Express’ has received over 100,000 downlaods in a month.Sometimes using samples from artists like MGMT (they went to the same school), Passion Pit and even Mary Poppins for inspiration, Chiddy Bang completely alters the tracks turning them into something of their own. See them tonight at Vinyl.
-Swedish.Death.Metal. Can you just imagine what kind of crowd is going to be at Center Stage tonight for guitar shedders, IN FLAMES, who will be joined by Trivium, Veil of Maya & Kyng.
-At the ever so awesome Drunken Unicorn, where Calm White Noise, Writer, and Antbrain will be entertaining hipsters.
