AMG Weekend Picks: Cults, Jon McLaughlin, & More!

[ 0 ] October 31, 2013 |

Cults1HAPPY HALLOWEEN! This is going to be a crazy weekend and we know you are way too focused on which wig you’re going to wear and how to apply fake blood to focus on what you’re doing for the rest of the weekend. Let us do it for you! Check out what’s happening this weekend!

Friday, November 1 – Cults @ The Loft

Cults has always been a band to look to both past and present. When the young duo arrived on the New York scene in 2010 with the perfectly formed debut single “Go Outside,” it was described as Phil Spector with hip-hop sensibilities, glee soaked in reverb. Static is a breakup album. Just not in the way we think of a breakup album. That cold knot in your stomach when you lose someone? That is not longing for a person. That is dread, uncertainty of what comes next.
Doors open at 8pm. Tickets are $15 in advance and $17 the day of show.

Friday, November 1 – Jon McLaughlin @ Eddie’s Attic

McLaughlin’s fourth album Promising Promises was released last year and included the single “Summer Is Over” featuring Sara Bareilles. McLaughlin’s newest album Holding My Breath was released in September.

Friday, November 1 – Roshambeaux with Kick the Robot and The Woodgrains @ Vinyl

Roshambeaux is a duo that sounds like a full rock band. Audiences are shocked to find only two people on stage. Sound techs marvel at the complexity of the technology the duo possesses and the sheer wall of sonic sound they achieve. It’s ambitious, big, rowdy rock music- part rap, part rave, with nods to Soul Brothers Six & Muse- but with an identity wholly its own. The band believes audience interaction is essential to an unforgettable live show and make it their mission to engage and entertain on an elevated level.
Doors open at 8pm. Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 on the day of show.

Friday, November 1 – Death on Two Wheels with StoneRider @ The Earl

Death On Two Wheels makes rock ’n’ roll dangerous again, with slurry-blurry lyrics, half-cocked dreamspeak of portents and regret, and a formidable guitar attack that recalls the nasty duels Allen Collins waged with Gary Rossington before Skynyrd’s final plane ride. Following the same bumpy trail as Kings of Leon, this Atlanta foursome seems to be in pursuit of darker mysteries on the band’s self-released debut. And unlike the Kings, they have more range and a greater reverence for ’70s classic rock, not to mention the eccentric bite of vocalist Trae Vedder.- Jaan Uhelszki, Paste Magazine
Doors open at 8:30pm. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 the day of show. Online and phone sales end at 6pm the day of show.

Atlanta native Dan Dixon has been a fixture in the independent music scene for years now, whether he was behind the board at his recording studio or on stage fronting the devilishly brilliant indie rock band PLS PLS. After disbanding his well loved band Dropsonic, Dixon continued to feed his need to create. With a new band in tow, PLS PLS’ debut album spans musical styles from the ’60s Wall of Sound to ’70s rock to ’80s dance to future pop.

Sunday, November 3 – Weatherbox with Restorations @ The Earl

It would be reasonable if you thought Weatherbox imploded some time ago. After all, the San Diego band has cycled through more than a dozen members in its half-decade existence and has kept a relatively low profile since the release of their last LP, 2009′s The Cosmic Drama, and subsequent departure from Doghouse Records. Frontman Brian Warren has since scaled that mountain and regrouped with a supporting cast that includes longtime friends (including two vintage Weatherbox members) and a new label, Youth Conspiracy Records. Together they will release Follow The Rattle of the Afghan Guitar, a six-song EP that brings you to the entrance of a tunnel, hands you a few matches, and shoves you into the dark.
Doors open at 8pm. Tickets are $8. Online and phone sales end at 6pm day of show.

Sunday, November 3 – Lindsey Hinkle with Erica Sunshine Lee @ Eddie’s Attic

Lindsey Hinkle is a self-taught musician armed with resonating lyrics that are filled with insight into the human condition, as well as haunting and penetrating vocals that seem to echo mercilessly inside your head. She has been writing and performing original material since age 13 and has opened for Shawn Mullins, Marc Broussard, Sugarland, Michelle Malone, Antigone Rising, and Sarah Bettens of K’s Choice among several others. In the summer of 2012 she opened for Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker, and Thompson Square on the Charter Stage at Oak Mountain Amphitheater. Her lyrical ability is, undoubtedly, far beyond her years. This is repeatedly evident in songs such as “Whole,” where she candidly describes the agony of losing not only love, but the unexpected attachment to the two sons that came with it.
Doors open at 5pm. Tickets are $10 in advance and $14 at the door. Online and phone sales end at 5pm on the day of the show.
