Today (and every day) is a perfect day for gettin’ our and gettin’ into some good ole homegrown music. Tonight we’ve got two excellent Atlanta bands playing, so get your local lovin’ tail out there and enjoy some sweet tunes.
The Villain Family @ The EARL
Villain Family is high energy soul country at it’s gritty best. They know that southern music is really a mix of gospel, country, rock and r&b. Following suit of some of the southern legends Villain Family uses a mix of humorous and heartfelt lyrics put to driving melodies that slap you right across the face. Each of the six members comes with their own musical background that range from classical piano and traveling gospel choirs to jazz standards. Their energy on stage will have you up dancin’, drinkin’ and singin’ along, feeling like you are part of the family caper.
Tickets are $7. Doors open at 8:30pm. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 6pm.
The Shadowboxers @ Eddie’s Attic
The Atlanta-based Shadowboxers have a passion for captivating lyrics, tight harmonies, and soulful vocals. Founding members Scott Schwartz, Matt Lipkins, and Adam Hoffman experienced an almost-instantaneous musical compatibility when they first started jamming. They’ve forged a cohesive sound based on a shared reverence for the strong, taut harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel, D’Angelo, and The Beatles. This young band’s unified sound has an R&B-soaked, smart perspective replete with an abundance of vocal talent and songwriting skill. In the short time they’ve been playing together, The Shadowboxers have found a collective voice that is intelligent, soulful, and catchy.
Tickets are $12 in advance and $16 at the door. A table of 4 reserved seats is $60. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Online, phone, and outlet sales end at 5pm.
