It’s Valentine’s weekend guys! Instead of sitting at the usual dinner for two at an overly expensive restaurant why not enjoy a little of the Atlanta music scene.  Whether or not you have a man (or woman) to bring along, you can surely find friends to make the weekend something more than just chocolate and roses.  Add a little bit of volume to your weekend!  Here are Atlanta Music Guide’s weekend picks:

Friday, February 15th-Tylan from Girlyman at Eddie’s Attic

A back to the roots singer songwriter, Tylan is a gritty, folky singer breaking genre lines.  Previously she had been touring with Girlyman for a ten years, and has just released her debut solo album “One True Thing.”  Don’t miss her powerful, and still completely relatable music.

Friday, February 15th-Low Tree Grow Tall at Vinyl

Indie folk singers straight out of Atlanta, Low Tree Grow Tall will be playing at Vinyl.  The folky duet won’t be playing your typical instruments.  You of course will get to hear the smooth vocals and acoustic guitar, but the duet may also be bringing in their ukulele, auto harp, and banjo.

Friday, February 15th-Bosnian Rainbows at Terminal West

Bosnian Rainbows is an American alternative rock band from El Paso, Texas, formed in 2012. The band consists of The Mars Volta members, Omar Rodriguez Lopez (guitar, backing vocals, keys) and Deantoni Parks (drums, keys), alongside the enigmatic Le Butcherettes vocalist Teri Gender Bender (vocals) and Nicci Kasper (keyboards, synths).

Friday, February 15th-Howie Day at Eddie’s Attic

The famous singer songwriter will be taking over the iconic stage at Eddie’s Attic.  Although his last studio release was in 2011, this will not be a show to miss.  Stop by and hopefully you can see his famous songs “Collide” and “She Says.”

Friday, February 15th-Swamp Juice with Six Shot Revival at Smiths Olde Bar

For some true southern rock music, Smiths Olde Bar is where you need to be.  Swamp Juice has been around for over two decades.  Even better, these are Atlanta natives will bring a lot of local color to their performance.

Friday, February 15th-FishHawk at The EARL

For a little taste of alternative electric soul, FishHawk will be playing at The EARL.  They bring in the alternative sound with multi-instrumental players and melodic guitar riffs and vocals.  Then comes the fun electric (with a touch of Of Montreal) paired with the perfectly poetic lyrics that brings in the soulful aspect of their music.  FishHawk brings a unique touch to alternative music.

Friday, February 15th-Ramona Falls at The Masquerade in Purgatory

The Portland, Oregon rockers will be taking over Atlanta this weekend.  The bands newest album “Prophet” is out now, and you can expect to hear a lot of those songs played at their show in Purgatory.  In 2012, the album peaked at No. 28 on the Heatseekers Album Chart.

Saturday, February 16th-Rockets to Ruin at Smiths Olde Bar

Rockets to Ruin is raw in every way.  The band basically laughs at all conventional “rules” of music.  They have been ruthlessly touring the southeast with their raw take on pure rock and roll.

Saturday, February 16th-Scott Miller at Eddie’s Attic

A rock singer songwriter may seem impossible, but Scott Miller has done just that.  He tells stories via electric guitar.  That’s enough to get me intrigued.  Check Scott Miller out at Eddie’s Attic.

Saturday, February 16th-moe. with Conspirator at The Tabernacle

Prepare yourself for long songs and crazy guitar riffs with moe.  The rock jamband will be at The Tabernacle, but moe. doesn’t just focus on the rock aspect, they take a huge focus on lyrics and songwriting as well, for a well rounded style that can be appreciated on all levels.

Saturday, February 16th-Unknown Mortal Orchestra with Foxygen at 529

The psych band has been finally made its way to the states after their tour of Europe and hometowns in New Zealand.  Their newest album “II” was just released this year, and earned itself a 7.3 rating on Pitchfork, which not many bands can claim.

Saturday, February 16th-Cotton Jones at The EARL

Cotton Jones’ newest album “Tall Hours in the Glow Stream” is a blend between northern and southern cultures and musical styles.  Some of the album was tracked up in the snowy north, while most of the album was recorded here in Georgia.  The album itself is lo-fi at its finest, and brings to mind an antique tone.  The sound and style becomes almost visual.  Don’t miss Cotton Jones at The EARL.

Saturday, February 16th-Railroad Earth at Variety Playhouse

For over a decade, Railroad Earth has been churning out Americana and rock tunes.  Their sheer talent allows them to improv on stage, and wow audiences from small venues to huge bluegrass and folk festivals.  The entire band is multi-instrumental players ranging from the guitar, mandolin, saxophone, penny whistle, Irish bouzouki, lap steel, and more.

Saturday, February 16th-Inviolate at Vinyl

Looking for a night of harder rock? Inviolate, the metal industrial rock band will be playing at Vinyl.  Get ready for a night of loud rock!

Saturday, February 16th-Southside of the Tracks at Peachtree Tavern

The southern rock band out of Marietta has been gaining a lot of attention in the local area.  They have made their way around the venues and bars in Atlanta, and performing at many of the town’s local places, and wowing hometown crowds.  Don’t miss out on this local favorite.

Sunday, February 17th-Silverstein at The Masquerade in Heaven

The hard core, punk, emo band will be playing in Heaven on Sunday.  Hailing from Canada, they have done five full length studio albums as well as toured in over 30 countries.  This is show you won’t want to miss.
