Happy Memorial Day Atlanta! We hope everyone is at home and relaxing! We’ve got quite a light schedule tonight. Most likely because it is assumed everyone is with their friends and family barbequing by the pool, enjoying a day at the park or even just veggin’ out! Well for those of you who don’t have plans, check out the lineup tonight! Hopefully you find a show that interests you!
UV Race with Total Control @ 529
Australia’s most genius avant-tards The UV Race drag melodious pop songs through a devolved, malodorous glam-punk aesthetic, exploring the possibilities of the first wave of punk, and gutter-glitter psych stomp, like if Vom tried to write their own Forever Changes; like if the Electric Eels backed up Bolan or if The Fall put out a record on Crass Records. There are tuneful lamentations of heartbreak and loss alongside very debased, toilet-humor punk licks; Lovecraftian psych-cult morbidity at one moment and rousing anti-anthems against self denial the next.
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 the 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.
