By Eileen Tilson Um highs today in the 70’s?!?!?! I can’t help but to think that mother nature is just playing a little trick on us all. “Oh yeah, whip out the shorts and flip flops, and then right when you start getting a little color back in your cheeks BAM! I’m gonna drop the […]

Review by Stephanie Roman (http://www.stephanieroman.com); photo by: William Buckley Attention System reminded us that it has been three years since they last appeared at the Star Bar. Since releasing the critically acclaimed debut album Wait for My Signal, the band has quickly become known for putting on the best electro-rock dance show in town. They […]
By Eileen Tilson/ @tktalt_tn Happy Thursday everyone! I must admit I am kind of excited because according to the Nashville weatherman, we are supposed to get snow today! Alas though I won’t be able to enjoy cause I am coming home to Atlanta this weekend! So as you are gearing up for your Thursday, I’ll […]
It’s a pretty quiet weekend as the city – nay, the world – struggles to come to terms with a new year and the end of the holidays, and possibly the tail-end of a New Year’s Eve hangover. So, much of what we have to recommend for this weekend is more on the quiet side, […]
By Eileen Tilson/ @tktalt_tn In the past few days, two people, one close to me and one stranger, both my age passed unexpectedly. I only bring up this little bit of sadness to remind everyone that life is preciously short, and to please live everyday as if it is your last. Truly…if this was your […]

You can tell everyone is dashing around this weekend doing last-minute holiday shopping, cleaning, cooking and the rest of it. Because this weekend sees Atlanta being a little on the quiet side for gigs, with the exception of a rockin’ holiday party gig or two, some great Christmas-themed shows and a few other gems that […]
Happy December everyone! This means that the Holiday Season is properly with us, so please take the opportunity to have an extra tipple, a little bit more of that cake and a lot more rock ‘n’ roll – and don’t worry about the consequences until January. To help you out, we have a great list […]
By Eileen Tilson/ @tktalt_tn Happy Halloween Everyone! This is by far my most favorite holiday; nothing like dressing up, getting candy, and acting a little wild! For those of you who are not taking the little ones out trick-or-treating, here are some ghoulish events for adults. -When a band tells you they are from Brooklyn, […]
Gringo Star Count Yer Lucky Stars Gigantic Music By Ellen Eldridge To say a buzz has been brewing over Atlanta locals Gringo Star would downplay the frenetic reverberations on the music industry radar. The allusion to Beatles drummer Ringo Starr remains a cute sarcasm, and fits the band’s style well with the choice of instruments […]
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, […]

What a weekend! There’s celebrations of the city’s best, new wave heroes, and a few extra-special festivals too. And with the unbearable heat long gone (knock on wood), we can run around the city all day and all night and not worry about melting into the pavement. So go forth and rock out!
