Anthony Aparo, Marshall Ruffin and Chris Moerman @ Eddie’s Attic
Born and raised in southern Georgia by musical parents, Anthony Aparo sings and plays the banjo, guitar, and cello, as well as a wide array of other auxiliary instruments. Throughout his teenage years, Aparo performed in a variety of bands, releasing a multitude of singles and EP’s under different project names, as well as a folk/pop LP with the Athens-based band Mr. Mustache. In the winter of 2012, he moved to Atlanta to further his work as a musician and writer, and became a part of a spiritual musical community that has shaped him into the artist he is now.
The McNifficent 7 w/ R. Garcia Band, Hot Sauce and Honey @ The EARL
Who are The McNifficent 7? Why are there only five guys on the stage? What do they sound like? The question isn’t who, what, or why; the question is how. How did this happen? It all started in the Fall of 2010 when Sean McNiff, a strange guy with an even stranger name, met Ty Popick in a Statistics class at Georgia State University. Lazy and uninterested in academic pursuits, McNiff and Popick killed time in class talking about music and quickly bonded over a mutual interest in soul and country music.
Tickets are $7. Doors open at 8:30pm. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 6pm.
