Happy Monday everyone! Fall is officially here and that means some awesome fall tours are just beginning! Music Midtown may be over, but the music doesn’t stop there! Check out some great shows happening tonight!
Gold Fields with Rush Midnight @ Smith’s Olde Bar
All young bands go through growing pains, and Gold Fields is no exception. It took three different tries before they made a version of their debut album, Black Sun, that met their expectations. Not that you’d ever guess that from listening to the finished product. Like their explosive live shows and the self-titled EP that preceded it last year, the Australian quintet’s debut full-length displays invention, drive, and a commitment to artistic expression that belies the group’s tender years.
Doors open at 8pm.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 the day of the event.
Online, phone, and outlet sales end at 2pm TODAY

Songwriter’s Open Mic @ Eddie’s Attic
For over 19 years, we’ve 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 our 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.

Red Bull Sound Select: Tobacco, The Difference Machine, deadCAT, and 10th Letter @ 529
If the details seem scarce, it’s because that’s how Tobacco likes to keep them. Hailing from an unspecified burg in rural Pennsylvania, somewhere north of Pittsburgh, he has successfully made a name for himself even as he’s avoided acknowledging that name’s legal counterpart. As both the frontman of Black Moth Super Rainbow and the sole creative engine behind Tobacco, he’s earned the eager ears and prying eyes of doggedly loyal fans and smitten critics alike, a kindness he’s repaid by granting few interviews, obscuring his face in photos, and seeming wholly uninterested in the subject of his own identity. Such things just get in the way of the music after all, so if it’s easier, you might think of Tobacco as music’s one-man genre made of equal parts analog crunch, earthy psychedelia, fuzzed-up hip-hop, and outside pop.
9pm / $3-$10 / 21+. Check out our interview with Tobacco here!
