5GB & Win Tickets With He’s My Brother She’s My Sister; Playing The Earl Tonight With Golden Animals
He’s My Brother She’s My Sister seem to invite a broad range of colorful words to describe their music and performances: “flamboyant folk,” “psych-acoustic,” “estranged and glamorous” and “vaudeville-y.” No doubt this is due to their mélange of musical styles, both modern and antique; their eccentric attire and sense of expression, both sincere and theatrical; […]
Funk-infused Texans, Snarky Puppy, are defining the new wave of jazz. Snarky Puppy’s leader, Michael League, was interviewed and written about in the 2010 book release “The New Face of Jazz: An intimate look at today’s living legends and the artists of tomorrow” by Cicily Janus. The author cites League’s self-termed music as “jafunkadansion” for […]

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 Eileen Tilson I can always tell when a band must be really hot by how quickly submissions come pouring in when we do a ticket giveaway, and let me tell you for the Ra Ra Riot/ Yellow Ostrich show, I wanted to turn my email off! Touring around the country together we caught Milo […]
By Eileen Tilson/ @tktalt_tn If you haven’t heard of Liverpudlians’ The Wombats, it just means that you live under a rock, albeit maybe a very small rock. The band is HUGE in the U.K. and of course, its kid sister, Australia. But, don’t think that means the band is just a cookie cutter U.K. pop […]
By Eileen Tilson Almost on a weekly basis, I hear musicians say “if I only had a publicist, I could make it.” The thought process being that if someone else pitched to an editor or blogger about how great their band is, they would have greater results. Minnesota’s Tapes n’ Tapes decided to take a […]
By Eileen Tilson Cheerio, Old Chap! Since this is a semi-slow music weekend here in Atlanta, I decided to take a pretend plane ride over to England to partake in festivities that are happening across the pond. Luckily for us, the Georgia music scene is being very well represented in the U.K.! TONIGHT: -Georgia’s own, […]
