Happy Monday, Atlanta! Start your week off right with a super fun show at The Drunken Unicorn or take it easy at Songwriter’s Open Mic. As always, let us know what you get up to and what you discover.
OFF! W/ BAD ANTICS AND GAY KISS @ The Drunken Unicorn
Over the past four years, OFF! have proven to be more than just a band. They also raise a series of challenging questions. After four decades of heavy use, does punk rock still have any life left in it? Do Keith Morris and his gang of grown-ass punk heroes still have the goods?
They’ve answered their own questions with a resounding yes through a packed itinerary of shows and a handful of recordings that are among the rawest musical experiences of the new decade. Combining reckless improvisational energy with the combined skills of four deadly sharp musicians, OFF! have dug down through a decades’ worth of accumulated stylistic garbage, and rediscovered the stripped down core of noise, speed, and rock & roll that punk seemed to have lost forever.
Show is 18+. Tickets are $15. Doors open at 8pm.
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 our 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.
Tickets are $5 in advance, $6 on the day of the show. Table seats are $6.25 and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Doors open at 7pm. Online, phone and outlet sales close at 5pm.
