What’s Up Thursday?

[ 0 ] August 16, 2012 |

Let me just tell you right now, everything in life connects. I’m about to start a new chapter in my life, and when I look at everything that has happened to bring me to where I am right now, I am absolutely amazed. So when you are going forth today into your world, just remember that although you cannot see it now, everything is laying itself out just as it should.

-“Delivering pure, simple, and timeless rustic songs touching on country, bluegrass, and even rural blues, husband-and-wife duo Cameron Federal and Russell Cook produce artful work on par with the finest of the expansive genre.  Masters of the lexicon of rural music, Little Country Giants create music rich with the sounds of Georgia’s roots and the musical seeds of America grown. “-Adam Klein, Cowboy Angel Music. See them tonight at The Earl.

The Official Mouth of Mojo Tour Kickoff Party starts tonight at The Basement at Graveyard Tavern. With performances by: BONZ, Caustic Thought, & MuckRaker.

-Texas country musicians Radney Foster crafts story songs with singular grit and grace, with folks like Darius Rucker calling Foster “his biggest influence.” Catch him tonight at Eddie’s Attic for his CD release party.

-Alabama native & neo-Nashvillian, Aaron Parker is already cutting his songwriting teeth with the big guns. He has written with Brett Jones (Jason Aldean “Crazytown”, Montgomery Gentry “What Do You Think About That”, Billy Currington “That’s How Country Boys Roll”) Larry Bastian (Garth Brooks “Rodeo”), Cary Barlowe (Lady Antebellum “American Honey) and Jim McCormick, just to name a few.. See him tonight at Peachtree Tavern.

-If you find yourself near Smith’s Olde Bar, drop in to catch Xavier Lewis -The Antidote.

Percussionist and New York-based Atlanta transplant Ellery Trafford explores such modern classical and 20th Century compositional masters/outsiders as John Cage, Iannis Xenakis and more.  See this tonight at The Goat Farm. FreeCL recommended.

-It’s a busy night for our friends at the Star Bar, who are hosting a free show with indie rockers Sleepy Genes, Freak Out, Curio Museum, Brain, Them Thangs.
