It’s a wonderful Wednesday morning today! What’s even better?! The mind-blowing Wednesday night lineup! Whether you love electronic dance music, country and Americana or indie rock, we’ve got all kinds of shows going on tonight! Check out the list below to see what show you’d like to go to!
White Lung @ 529
White Lung are known for their furious yet melodic approach to punk. Since adding guitarist Kenneth William in 2009, Mish Way (vocals), Anne-Marie Vassiliou (drums) and Grady Mackintosh (bass) have received nothing but critical acclaim for their distinct brand of punk and their tight, live stage shows. Check out our 5GB interview with Mish Way of White Lung!
Quintron and Miss Pussycat @ The Earl
Quintron has been making genre-defying noise and “Swamp-Tech” dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of his ten full-length albums have the psychedelic soul of New Orleans garage R&B filtered through a tough distorted Hammond B-3 and a cache of self-made electronic instruments.
Miss Pussycat, otherwise known as Panacea Theriac, is a New Orleans based puppeteer. The Quintron and Miss Pussycat live show is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, “Swamp-Tech” dance beats, small explosions, clothes, and entertaining puppet stories.
The Black Lillies @ Eddie’s Attic (7:30 pm)
Cruz Contreras and his bandmates – harmony vocalist Trisha Gene Brady, multi-instrumentalist Tom Pryor, bass player Robert Richards and drummer Jamie Cook – have grown from a few friends sitting around campfires and living rooms to a band that shows up in far-flung cities where folks to whom they’ve never played before already know the words to the songs. Despite trafficking in a richer, more authentic brand of country and Americana than what gets played on mainstream country radio, they’ve still been invited to perform at the Grand Ole Opry more than a dozen times – a record for an independent act.
Wakey!Wakey! @ Eddie’s Attic (10:00 pm)
Wakey!Wakey! made their presence known over the past couple years by finding a perfect balance between crowd-pleasing pop and art-damaged indie rock.
Nowadays, frontman Mike Grubbs, is the crazy one, slapping his piano around and singing like his life depends on it while conducting a rich backdrop of sweeping strings, heavenly harmonies, and enough delicate details to make Wakey!Wakey!’s first proper LP feel like an Oscar-nominated film soundtrack.
Bridge to Grace @ 120 Tavern
Bridge To Grace has the Atlanta music scene buzzing! They have the perfect blend of powerhouse vocals and dynamic musicianship. They are a group of versatile musicians and songwriters. Bridge To Grace has a modern commercial sound. Their music consists of strong melodies and powerful arrangements. The band has been working with “world renowned” producer Rick Beato (Shinedown, Need To Breathe). The members of Bridge To Grace have shared the stage with prominent artists such as: Theory of a Dead Man, Trapt, Skillet, Saving Abel, Black Stone Cherry, Flyleaf and Sick Puppies.
Concord America @ The Drunken Unicorn
When Atlanta’s Concord America formed in the summer of 2011, Ben Presley (vocals, lead guitar), Vinny Restivo (bass guitar), and John Restivo (drums) couldn’t have fathomed that their punk/garage style would evolve to make itself relevant to every genre of music. Drawing inspiration from obvious grunge trailblazers like the Pixies, ConAm – as they are lovingly referred to by their creative, enthusiastic, and growing group of fans – writes songs that also appeal to an indie crowd obsessed with the Arctic Monkeys and Cage the Elephant. And sometimes, if you listen very closely, you’ll hear a tune that seems to hark back to the 1960s or beyond to the jazz age.
Frightened Rabbit @ The Masquerade
Check out the Scottish indie rock band playing in Heaven tonight!
