Travis Tritt w/ Kaitlyn Baker @ Cavalier Arena at Darton State College

No sky is bluer, no air crisper, no leaf greener than after a storm, and Travis Tritt is adding a musical addendum to that list with the release of The Calm After …. Part metaphor and surprisingly literal, the title is reflective of a fresh and focused start for one of the most successful and acclaimed musical creators of his era. The tumult his music has come through to get this point, however, is very real.

General admission tickets start at $35. Doors open at 8pm.




Sara Evans @ Mill Town Music Hall

Confidence is sexy and creativity is empowering. Rarely have those qualities merged into a more potent package then on Sara Evans’ new album Slow Me Down.  From the simmering title track, which provided her biggest first week ever at country radio, to the life-affirming message of the album’s closing song, “Revival,” Evans has crafted a compelling body of work filled with the kind of slice-of-life vignettes that fans expect from the award-winning vocalist.

Premium reserved tickets are $65 in advance, $70 at the door. Reserved tickets are $55 in advance, $60 at the door. Doors open at 7pm. Online and phone sales close at 4pm.




Wild Cub w/ Grizfolk @ Vinyl

Youth is a collection of captured moments…like moving photographs: late night drives, the limitless feeling of falling in love, the freedom of finding a true friend and co-conspirator in an immense world, the cool ocean meeting your toes on a hot summer’s day. Formed in early 2012 by songwriter-composer Keegan DeWitt and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Bullock, Wild Cub’s debut LP ‘Youth’ was released last August in the US, and showcases the now five-piece band’s dexterity in seamless transitions between infectious electro-pop, tropical rhythms, and quiet washes of cinematic reflection.

Tickets are $13. Doors open at 8pm. Online, phone and outlet sales end at 4pm.




Spanish Gold w/ Water Liars @ The EARL

The debut album from Spanish Gold—a newly formed band featuring former Hacienda guitarist/vocalist Dante Schwebel, Brownout guitarist Adrian Quesada, and My Morning Jacket drummer Patrick Hallahan—South of Nowhere is a densely layered love letter to Laredo, the spirited but often troubled Texas border town where Schwebel and Quesada grew up.

Tickets are $14. Doors open at 8:30 pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm.




Smokin’ Novas CD Release @ Eddie’s Attic

Andrew Hyra and Brian Bristow formed the genesis of Smokin’ Novas in 2012 when they began co-writing songs for what would become their debut album now in release online and soon in CD format. The end result is a collection of 10 original songs that pulls together elements of Americana, country, rock, pop and folk.

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 9:15 pm. Online and phone sales close at 5pm.




Listener w/ ’68 // The Homeless Gospel Choir @ The Loft

This innovative 3-piece band hails from the Midwest and they’re all about Talk Music. What is Talk Music you ask? Check out the video below and get the scoop on this new genre.

Tickets are $12. Doors open at 7pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm.

Dave and Phil Alvin with The Guilty Ones @ The EARL

Though this is their first album together in decades, the Alvin brothers collaborated last year on ‘Ghost Brothers of Darkland County,’ the critically acclaimed “southern gothic supernatural musical” by Stephen King, John Mellencamp and T Bone Burnett. They also sang a duet on “What’s Up With Your Brother” for Dave’s last Yep Roc release ‘Eleven/Eleven.’

Tickets are $25. Doors open at 8pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm day of show.




The Bonaventure Quartet @ Eddie’s Attic

What do you get when you combine the gypsy-jazz stylings of Django Reinhardt and the torchy-twangy mezzo delivery of Patsy Cline with a rowdy troupe of Romani-esque instrumentalists? The only correct answer would be the Bonaventure Quartet! This longtime Atlanta outfit handily transplants you to another time and place while putting their own stamp on it all. The ensemble’s latest album, Lost and Found at the Clermont Lounge, may take its title from the Ponce dive-turned-tourist-attraction, but the disc’s 15 songs traverse decades, regions, whole continents.

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 day of show.




Angela Reign w/ Coal Mountain Band @ Hard Rock Cafe’s Velvet Underground

Selected in 2013 as Best Female Country Artist of the Year (Georgia Music Awards), nominated this year for the same as well as for Best Overall Female Artist of the Year, and headlining at major music events and venues across the country, Premier Records signed artist Angela Reign is taking the music industry by storm. Fans, club owners, the press, DJs and music critics alike are raving over Angela’s powerful original music, masterfully performed covers and dynamic stage show.

VIP table tickets are $20 each and must be purchased in multiples of 4. General admission tickets are $8. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Online and phone sales close at 4pm day of show.




Sunday, July 20th

Lindsey Hinkle, Stephanie Callahan, and Hannah Thomas @ Eddie’s Attic
