Picture Book and Review: Ha Ha Tonka @ Smith’s Olde Bar – September 14th, 2012

[ 0 ] September 18, 2012 |

Photos and Review by Chandler Mays Ha Ha Tonka is a Missouri band that definitely knows how to cook up a stellar rock song. Their headlining set at Smith’s Olde Bar last friday served as an intoxicating lesson in Southern rock and gospel folk music for a rowdy group of Georgians. They reminded us that […]

Picture Book and Live Review: Zammuto @ The Earl – 9/10/12

[ 3 ] September 13, 2012 |

Photos and Review by Chandler Mays Every once in while, a show comes along where afterwards, you say to yourself, “Well, I haven’t seen THAT before.” Zammuto at The Earl was one of these shows. The opening act was aptly titled “Duet For Theremin and Lap Steel”, where Scott Burland and Frank Schultz used these […]

Photos and Review by Chandler Mays The Quaildogs turned up the heat for their EP release party last Friday at The Loft. Starting off with a bang, the night began with a lively boot-stomping set by Sol Junky, who delivered country rock jams with inspiring harmonies and guitar solos reminiscent of The Allman Brothers, although […]

Photos and Review by Chandler Mays After spending all day recovering from Friday night, I grabbed my keys and jetted back to East Atlanta Village for another killer line-up at the sixth annual Nophest festival. I was so distracted looking over the schedule that halfway there I realized I was wearing the same outfit from […]

Photos and Review by Chandler Mays Nophest is described as “a non-corporate, no-bullshit music festival thrown every year in Atlanta”. After its sixth successful go-round, Nophest has become a highly respected festival that seems to keep improving each subsequent year. With the amount of raw talent showcased over the jam-packed weekend, you begin to feel […]

Photos and Review by Chandler Mays Kishi Bashi and Tall Tall Trees played to a packed house this past Monday at 529, located in the heart of East Atlanta Village. When I walked in, I was both surprised and elated to find that the owners had recently knocked down the dividing wall in the showroom, […]

Picture Book & Review: Ava Luna @ The Earl, August 3rd 2012

[ 0 ] August 7, 2012 |

Photos and Review by Chandler Mays Ever since the late 90s, it has seemed to me that the neo-soul trend, started by greats such as Prince and Sade, has steadily declined over the years. While that may be true, the recent Ava Luna show in East Atlanta’s Restaurant and Lounge reminded me that the genre […]

Picture Book & Live Review: Zach Deputy @ Eddie’s Attic – July 6th, 2012

[ 0 ] July 10, 2012 |

Photos and Review by Chandler Mays Zach Deputy’s solo-acoustic set at Eddie’s Attic was the perfect way to start my Friday evening. The show was intimate, reverent, and strangely hilarious. Instead of live entertainment at a venue, it seemed more like Zach was a close friend who whipped out his guitar for an impromptu performance […]

Picture Book & Live Review: Lazer/Wulf @ The Earl – July 7th

[ 0 ] July 10, 2012 |

Photos and Review by Chandler Mays Anyone who tries to spread the word about Lazer/Wulf always runs into the same problem: Explaining their sound. People throw around genre catchwords such as metal, jazz fusion, thrash, sludge, mathcore, aggressive, progressive, symphonic, melodic, evil-funk, avant-metal… the list goes on. Personally, I prefer to use the phrase “groove […]
