Where has the time gone?! Happy Monday AND happy April Fool’s day! We hope all you jokesters out there are having a ball! What’s not a joke is this awesome Monday night lineup! Atlanta’s music scene may not have much going on tonight, but the shows that are happening are sure to please! Check out the lineup below!
WAX @ Vinyl
Michael Jones, better known by his stage name Wax, is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. He became a YouTube star after uploading several videos of himself rapping and singing. Check out one of WAX’s most recent music videos “Rosana“.
Tommy Malone (of the Subdudes) @ Smith’s Olde Bar
On stage, standing front and center, Tommy Malone exudes a laid-back, down-to-earth style that epitomizes the Subdudes. But his self-assured exterior masks a songwriter who mines heartache and elation, the surreal and the everyday, and who crafts the experiences into instantly memorable tunes. As the Subdudes’ lead guitarist, he punctuates soulful, heart-felt vocals with playing that is at turns joyful, incendiary, melancholic.
Songwriter’s Open Mic @ Eddie’s Attic
For over 19 years, Eddie’s Attic has hosted Atlanta’s premiere Songwriter’s Open Mic for the performing songwriter. National and local acts perform 2 songs each, with 3 finalists returning for a third song at the end of the evening for a chance to win a cash prize and a spot in our bi-annual, nationally acclaimed Open Mic Shootout. This is a great opportunity for up and coming talent to hone their skills and for listeners to see and meet tomorrow’s stars.
