By David Courtright; photo by Sam Parvin On a line-up of very disparate but talented performers, Athens’s Lera Lynn and Atlanta’s own Young Orchids joined Phoenix’s Miniature Tigers at the Star Community Bar last Friday.

Wow, this weekend is going to be a big one. Fancy pants charity functions, camp and glorious glam rock ‘n’ roll, bizarre-o comedy, a disco diva and more. Basically something for everyone. And of course we have our usual round up of on-sales. Here’s what you have to choose from:
Bits & Bobs: Interpol, Garrison Keillor, Miniature Tigers, Trailer Vic’s Beach Party, Sufjan Stevens and More!
– As you may have noticed in our Weekend Picks post, Interpol are bringing moody dark synths and guitars to The Tabernacle on November 1 and Metric will be coming on October 28. – For those who like their twee stories of cold states in America told in a slow, thoughtfully-measured way, Garrison Keillor is […]

This “space cake” as she so cleverly called it, took about 45 minutes to effect her, starting at her tingling toes, and riding her blood waves, until her entire body felt like […]
My goodness, what a week. It’s been hot, stormy and maybe just a little miserable – and that’s just been our moods. Maybe it was just a full-length week after two short weeks, but we really need this weekend. There’s plenty to do, from Broadway shows to stand-up comedy, kick-ass local rock to a classic […]
We’re sad to have to announce that the last ever Big Trouble in Little Five Points is taking place this Thursday. From the horses’ mouthes: Just like the Beatles, Ebbet’s Field and Michael Jordan’s first retirement, sometimes the right time to say goodbye happens to be when things are still rolling along. This month marks […]

Friday, June 18 – Collective Efforts and Vonnegutt at Smith’s Olde Bar Old school ATL hip hop group Collective Efforts traded in the turntables for a full band and added just the right amount of funk and soul to their live performances.

“Free Energy” from Free Energy on Vimeo. Maybe it’s just a good idea, but there is something about the name Free Energy that just makes you feel good. That good feeling only gets better once you start listening to their music. A retro-pop bag full of cheer, the songs are seriously happy. We actually like what we’ve heard […]
