Can you feel it folks? Fall is properly in the air. We have leaves changing color and everything – and it’s not just from the lack of water. It’s the perfect crispy cool weather for taking in some great rock shows. Whether you want aging legends, need-to-know newbies or locals with their foot firmly in […]

Grinderman 2 Anti By Al Kaufman Nick Cave and Halloween go together like Christmas and Santa. Even when he’s not sporting the porn star mustache, there are none more creepy than Nick Cave. When part of Grinderman, Cave turns his creepiness up a notch or five. It’s almost as if Cave had been holding back […]

Live Review: Deerhunter at Variety Playhouse, October 1

Live Review: Deerhunter at Variety Playhouse, October 1

[ 0 ] October 6, 2010 |

By David Courtright There are no more tidy boxes in music anymore. Genres are decaying on their stalks. The blight of mainstream. People ask, “What kind of music is it?” You shrug. “Good.” Fair enough. The good thing, one may suppose, is that a band like Deerhunter can become, well, mainstream. If that still means […]

By Giles Turnbull Two great things about the Variety Playhouse are that it’s in Little Five Points, Atlanta’s bohemian heart, and that means it’s a short stroll from the best frozen margaritas in Atlanta at the Tijuana Garage. One less great thing is that the venue can be all-seated, which raised a minor complaint from […]

Live Review: CocoRosie at Variety Playhouse, September 21

[ 0 ] September 24, 2010 |

By David Courtright CocoRosie has always been an entity steeped in mystery. Their history borders on mythology: a pair of sisters with a transient childhood, vision quests through the desert with their father, separation and estrangement. Only in early adulthood did the sisters reconcile and find their love for making music together. Their visual presentation […]

Finally fall has arrived! Well, alright, only officially. It’s still baking hot. But this weekend should be more bearable, and what better way to celebrate the removal of the horrific heat than outdoor concerts, arts and food festivals, and a couple of indoor gigs too. And there are quite a few great on-sales coming up […]

of Montreal False Priest Polyvinyl Records By Scott Roberts On their 10th full-length release False Priest, goofy, but often brilliant, Athens-based band of Montreal and their musical guru Kevin Barnes have temporarily set aside a generous portion of their obvious love of ’60s psychedelia to make way for their inner Prince and Bowie. So, how […]
