Happy Monday Atlanta! School is about to begin and things are going to start bustling in the city! Let’s sit back and enjoy these last few days before the crazy traffic and manic mornings occur. It’s a laid-back kind of night, so grab a cold beverage and enjoy some live music!
The Melvins @ The Loft
The Melvins kicked off their 30th Anniversary tour roughly two weeks ago and they hit Atlanta tonight! Joining Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and Coady Willis will be Butthole Surfers’ bass player Jeff Pinkus, temporarily filling in for Jared Warren who will be on paternity leave. The band Honky will open up for the Melvins! Come out and celebrate the anniversary of this awesome band!
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.
Jack Daniel’s Honey Concert Series @ Smith’s Olde Bar
A night of live music featuring Mammoth Indigo (9pm) and two more bands to be announced! $5 at the door. Doors @ 7pm.
Dasher | Carmen | Warehouse | Twin Trances | Ghastly City Sleep @ 529
After releasing a debut cassette in May titled Yeah I Know, bassist Ian Deaton (God’s Balls), guitarist Jon Allinson (Abby GoGo), and singer/drummer Kylee Kimbrough have been on a secret tear. Over the last two years, the sound and vision of the group known as Dasher has grown with a dark and experimental approach to crafting raw, noise-pop dirges. The band has been working on a three-song 7-inch set to release this fall/winter via Atlanta’s long-standing Die Slaughterhaus Records. Show is FREE. Doors @ 9pm. 21+.
