Good morning Atlanta! The three-day weekend may be over, but there’s no need to fret! We’ve got a great week ahead with awesome shows at incredible venues! Check out what’s going on tonight and get ready to have a fun-filled week!
The Men with Turf War & Small Reactions @ The EARL
With their fourth full-length album to be released in as many years, The Men proudly present the sweeping New Moon, their most intensely personal and immersive installment yet. Never content to draw on the same methods twice, nor to recline under the heel of expectation, The Men quit the city in early 2012 to head for Big Indian, NY – transforming a remote Catskills locale into a full-fledged stray dog studio home. Piano, mandolin, harmonica, four-part vocal harmonies and even no-input harsh noise all weave their way through New Moon. Spiritually, it is hedged with as much leaden dirge and ecstatic abandon, as it is genuine saccharine steel-string levity, and an ever-tightening, no apologies pop concision. Summarily: New Moon is the remembrance of why green grass has to lean on the dirt beneath; it is a love letter devoted in bowed humility to the grand continuum, exposing the hoax of the great divide.

Hands @ The Drunken Unicorn
Hands makes music like a rip tide, swirling in overlapping loops and riffs, slowly enveloping you. The group’s members – Geoff Halliday, Ryan Sweeney, Sean Hess and Alex Staniloff – craft their hypnotic sound from a single dropping note that builds into a reverberating roar that crashes over you like a wave.
Sahara Smith with Special Guest, Hunter Callahan @ Eddie’s Attic
Sahara Smith was born in Austin in 1988, but did most of her growing up in the hill country where she started performing locally at fourteen. At fifteen she was selected to compete in A Prairie Home Companion’s ‘Talent from 12-20’ contest and took home second place. Since then, she’s been pursuing a career as a singer/songwriter. Her first album, Myth of the Heart, was shepherded by T Bone Burnett, and her current album, produced by Brian Beattie, is in its final stages of production.
