Finish off your week with any of these great shows we picked for you!

Friday July 11th

Brett Young @ Eddie’s Attic

When you see that look in Brett Young’s baby blues, it isn’t too hard to understand what took this California boy from a ball field to the recording studio. His gritty vocals and impassioned lyrics are built on the same firm foundation that had him as a pre-draft selection of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays straight out of high school—hard work, sheer talent and that thing music industry execs and baseball talent scouts alike simply call heart.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Table seats are $18.75 and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Doors open at 6pm. Online and phone sales close at 5pm.

Nathan Angelo @ Eddie’s Attic

The ever-changing landscape of modern pop, Nathan Angelo shines as a refreshing alternative, embracing the classic elements of popular music and celebrating the backbeat of American tradition. As the revival of music in the 60’s and 70’s brought together the heritage of the Great American songbook, the flair of jazz and heartache of the Delta blues, Angelo integrates these forms into his own music with great ease and delight. Like many Motown and Stax artists, Angelo’s musical craft was cultivated at a young age in the pews and platform of the church. It was there that he first witnessed the power music had to transport people beyond their present experiences.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $14 at the door. Table seats are $12.50 and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Show starts at 9:30pm. Online and phone sales close at 5pm.

The Baseball Project @ The Earl 

Formed in 2007 by Scott McCaughey and Steve Wynn, The Baseball Project began as a way for a couple of fans to pay musical tribute to our national pastime — and maybe score some free baseball tickets in the process. But The Baseball Project has since blossomed into a full-fledged, much-loved band in its own right, one which currently includes drummer Linda Pitmon and R.E.M.’s Peter Buck and Mike Mills on its official roster, and one whose following and creativity has steadily grown with each release and tour.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $17 at the door. Doors open at 8:30pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm.

Curtis Harding w/ special guest @ The Earl

Curtis Harding says that soul music, and his music, speak for themselves. It’s self-evident on the Atlanta artist’s debut, Soul Power. The driving sound of his electrified Stratocaster, the foot-stomping backbeat and the lyrics swimming in reverb — with something this flourishing, it’s almost reductive to just dig around the roots. Harding’s style was born in Michigan and bred on the road, a restless childhood spent singing gospel alongside an evangelizing mother, then cultivated in Atlanta, where he sang backup for CeeLo Green and befriended the Black Lips.

Tickets are $10. Show starts at 9:30pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm.

The Beach Boys with special guest John Stamos @ The Fred

John Stamos’ moonlighting gig with The Beach Boys is now nearing three decades – though Stamos looks about the same as he did in 1988’s “Kokomo” video – and he’s back with the band for spate of shows including Saturday’s gig at The Fred in Peachtree City. We expect it to be totally spectacular!

General Admission tickets are $45. Show starts at 8pm. Online and phone sales close at 4pm.

Old School Saturday @ The Sheraton Atlanta Hotel

“ALL Old School Music, ALL Night, ALL That!” If you’re in the mood to throwback this weekend, then check out OSS. No music made past 1999 guaranteed! The party changes location each month and has been bringing the best event to enjoy 80s and 90s music to the Atlanta area since 2003. You’ll love the trip down memory lane as you remember the words & hooks to almost every song…including R&B, Hip-Hop, House Music, Reggae, and more.

Tickets are $10-$20, advanced tickets required. Show starts at 9pm. Online and phone sales close at 3pm.

Sunday July 13th

Avers w/ special guests @ The Earl

Psychedelic pop. Blistering garage rock. Fuzzed-out shoegaze. Free-formed throwback jams. With their amps cranked high and their voices doused in reverb, Avers brew up their own kind of spacey swirl. It’s a sound that keeps one foot in the past and the other in the present, like some kind of 1960s time capsule unearthed by a group of 21st century indie kids.

Tickets are $10. Show starts at 8:30pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm.

Stevens Layne with special guest, Colby Dee @ Eddie’s Attic

Stevens Layne encompasses honest and raw lyrics with a soulful and pure sound. Stevens and Layne are two different people, but the core of truth, passion and deep rooted soul is found in their music together. Stevens Layne is a powerful team spitting out songs from the heart.

Tickets are $8 in advance, $12 at the door. Table seats are $10 in advance and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Doors open at 6:00pm. Online and phone sales close at 5:00 pm day of show.
