Dr. Dog Be the Void Anti- Dr. Dog has returned with some new tunes that are blowing me away. The band’s newest album, Be the Void, was recently released on February 8 and it’s their sixth full-length in the past 10 years. Typically by this point in a band’s career, I’ve given up hope and [...]
Country outlaws, soul divas, college rock heroes, experimental indie rock legends… oh my! This weekend is ridiculously packed with the best music the past five decades have given us. We’re not sure how you’re going to make all these choices, so let us know what you decide on in the comments below.
By Amanda Miles Kurt Thomas knows how to kick off a show. Grabbing the audience’s attention with a strong riff and never letting up is his signature honky tonk style. The cold December wind was no match for the heat emanating from the Kurt Thomas Band at Dixie Tavern on December 9. The venue may [...]
Brrrrrr! Wrap up warm folks, this chilly weather isn’t messing around. It’ll get a bit milder over the weekend, but regardless, the wintery temperatures shouldn’t deter you from getting to some great gigs. Local music is especially being represented well this weekend, with record releases and more abound! And if you fancy the field-trip, get [...]

Li’s latest album, Wounded Rhymes, brushes aside all of the come-ons and questions from her debut Youth Novels and transitions to actions [...]

Iron & Wine – Buckhead Theatre – Atlanta, GA – 11/11/11 By Justin Lyons If you haven’t listened to Iron & Wine recently, you might assume two things about Sam Beam & co.’s live performance: a) a simple singer-songwriter style approach [...]
This is definitely a weekend for the non-procrastinators. There’s a lot of sold-out (and close to selling out) shows up on our list, but luckily for those who waited too long there is still plenty of great gigs to choose from. So make those plans now if you haven’t already!

Happy Almost-Weekend People! This one is going to rock. From yummy treats at Taste of Atlanta to the marvels and wonders at the Little Five Points Halloween Parade, we’ve got you covered. And if you do pop along to the parade, be sure to find our tent (in front of Criminal Records) with Ticket Alternative. [...]
You guys really are spoiled for choice this weekend. The city’s hip older sibling is hosting a little shindig with some college rock legends, while the still-cool but much-older uncle spoils ale lovers rotten with a sold-out craft beer extravaganza. And between all that, there’s a ton of kick-ass rock shows to boot. Choose wisely, [...]
