By Ellen Eldridge I took a deep breath and a heaping dose of “get over it” advice when conquering the overwhelming feeling of trying to come up with insightful questions for a band that has influenced and acted as the undercurrent for so much mainstream music over the last three decades. The Melvins’ own Buzz […]
Sometimes it is a good thing just to have a relatively quiet evening. I’m pretty certain that if you spend too much time going to shows, you might forget about the really great ones. Tonight is a quiet eve in Atlanta, but alas here are your choices. -Co-managed by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation imprint, Melanie Fiona’s […]
Today is the 7th day in a row in March that it’s been over 80 degrees. Just broke the record that was set in 1907. Wow, it is officially Spring. OR perhaps Mother Nature decided to skip all of it, and go straight to summer. Either way, enjoy the day! – “Keyboardist/songwriter Thomas Dolby calls […]

Ms. Autumn is a world-class violinist who has played all over the world before landing herself in an […]

By Eileen Tilson Nothing makes me prouder to say I am from Atlanta then to watch a band I have know from infancy grow into a force. I met the District Attorneys about a year ago, and have watched contently as they have been featured on mega-blogs such as Large Hearted Boy, My Old Kentucky […]
By Al Kaufman Fountains of Wayne is not your typical success story. The New York-based band came up with the name after driving by a yard art store in Wayne, N.J., then quickly signed with Atlantic Records in 1996. They were subsequently dropped after their first two albums did not sell up to Atlantic’s expectations. […]
