It may be a gloomy Monday, but hey, this weekend was awesome wasn’t it? Tunes from the Tombs was a blast, not to mention, the Front Bottoms and the World Classic Rockers shows! After a busy weekend, we don’t have too much going on tonight, but what we do have going on is HUGE! How can one choose between Sting and Fleetwood Mac?! Crazy! Check out the schedule below and see what show you’ll be attending tonight!
Songwriter’s Open Mic @ Eddie’s Attic

The Whigs @ The Masquerade
With their new album, Enjoy the Company, The Whigs have created a raucous ode to rock and roll. From the opening track, an exhilarating eight-minute mission statement called “Staying Alive”, the record offers a powerful sonic rendering of a band opening up to the depth of their past and kicking open the doors to their future. But most of all, this is the undeniably established sound of a band affirming their legacy in the American rock and roll paradigm.
Sting @ Chastain Park Amphitheatre
Sting’s current ”Back to Bass” tour is a tightly packed retrospective, assembling all the facets of his 36-year career into a neat two hours of the obvious hits, some international detours, and requisite ballads.
Fleetwood Mac @ Philips Arena
The Fleetwood Mac story is an episodic saga that spans more than 30 years. It is the saga of a British blues band formed in 1967 that became a California-based pop group in the mid-Seventies. In between came a period where Fleetwood Mac shuffled personnel and experimented with styles, all the while releasing solid albums that found a loyal core audience. Despite all the changes, two members have remained constant over the years: drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie, whose surnames provided the group name Fleetwood Mac. Though most rock fans are familiar with the lineup that includes Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks-by far the longest-running edition of the band, responsible for the classic albums Fleetwood Mac and Rumours-the group possesses a rich and storied history that predates those epics.
