Rainy days and Mondays always get me down, but awesome concerts are the perfect pick-me-up. Start your week off right with these:
Lion in the Mane / Rookie of the Year w/ Microwave @ Smith’s Olde Bar
Formerly known as The Atlas, Lion in the Mane formed in 2009 and brilliantly executed the debut of their incredible wall of sound to a sizable passionate audience at The Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York on December 14, 2010. Lion in The Mane’s musical style has been described as “building crescendos with dynamic conclusions which indicates the work of experienced musicians with a conscientious attention to songwriting detail” by the media, drawing comparisons to 30 Seconds to Mars, Angels and Airwaves and The Dangerous Summer.
Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are $10. Online and phone sales close at 2pm.
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.
Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are $5 in advance and $6 at the door. Tables with 4 reserved seats are $25. Online and phone sales end at 5pm.
