easton-corbin-456-091912This Thursday in the ATL, we present a break out country star with a classic country sound, a collection of Elton-loving Atlantans, a sorcerer of soul and a couple of festival-worthy bands. Time to break out the cowboy boots and flashy shades.

Easton Corbin @ Electric Cowboy

Also Appearing: Kyle Grubb

Nashville recording artist Easton Corbin is taking country music like an eastbound storm. The Florida native is being lauded for his traditional country sound, authentic lyrics and mastery of understatement. USA Today says Easton is “a country music throwback with an easygoing, old-school style.” He is the first country male artist in years to have his first two singles reach No. 1 — “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It.” See him sing these, and some other fresh diddies with an old-school twang tonight at the Electric Cowboy in Kennesaw.
Doors at 7pm. Tickets are $25. Online and phone sales end at 4pm.

ATL Collective @ Eddie’s Attic

Atlanta’s own motley musical crew the ATL Collective is back and raring to revive Sir Elton John’s 1970 concept album Tumbleweed Connection. This is the Collective’s  first presentation of anything by the flamboyant and prolific knight (born Reginald Kenneth Dwight, incidentally), and we’re all pretty pumped up about it (feel a little like rocket men thinking about in fact). Mr. Nathan Angelo will curate the show, and we can think of no one better to match Elton’s intensity and energy, or his style for that matter, than Angelo and the ultra-talented Collective.

Doors at 6:30pm. Tickets are $10. Table seats are $12.50. Online and phone sales end at 5pm.

Geographer @ The Drunken Unicorn

Also Appearing: Royal Bangs 

Originally from San Francisco, Geographer brings some California cool to the East Coast this fall with their sweet, synth-tastic tunes. In the past, Geographer has toured with a multitude of dreamy indie bands including (but not limited to) Foster the People, Freelance Whales, Stars and Toro y Moi. Come see them tonight and you may experience the most interesting geography lesson of your life.

Doors at 9pm. Tickets are $10. Online and phone sales end at 4pm.

Lee Fields & the Expressions @ The Earl

There aren’t too many artists making soul music today who had a release in 1969, back when R&B was first beginning to flourish. Lee Fields, however, is one such artist—or maybe he’s better labeled a phenomenon. Since the late sixties, the North Carolina native has amassed a prolific catalog of albums and has toured and played with such legends as Kool and the Gang, Sammy Gordon and the Hip-Huggers, O.V Wright, Darrell Banks, and Little Royal. With a career spanning 43 years and releases on twelve different record labels, it’s mind-blowing that the music he’s making today with his raucous-yet-tender voice is the best of his career. With a catalogue that ranges from James Brown-style funk to lo-fi blues to Southern soul to collaborations with French house producer Martin Solveig, Lee Fields has done it all. Today with The Expressions, Lee Fields continues to evolve, enmeshed into the group’s sweeping, string-laden, cinematic soul sound, and continues to occasionally be lauded as the “coolest motherfucker to sing words into a microphone.”

Doors at 8pm. Tickets are $17. Online and phone sales end at 6pm.

Twiddle @ Smith’s Olde Bar

Twiddle, a Vermont based quartet, spins tall tales over an intricate soundscape of hi-def shred. Their fresh multi-genre approach conjures up jazz, classical, and bluegrass, but above all, masterfully blends reggae and funk. Obliterating laws of improvisation, their complex arrangements never fail to leave crowds lusting for more. With sage songwriting and unmatched variety, Twiddle’s thrilling infancy continues to exceed all expectation.

Doors at 8pm. Tickets are $12. Online and phone sales end at 2pm.
