Birds of Chicago w/ Mitch Haney @ Smith’s Olde Bar
Birds of Chicago is a collective built around JT Nero ( of JT and The Clouds, Chicago, USA) and Allison Russell ( of Po’Girl, Montreal, Canada) — they are constant vagabonds touring almost 11 months last year in support of their debut, self-titled album. Their brand of rock and roll poetry can be a little hard to categorize, for people that insist on categorizing… their voices are undoubtedly the centerpiece, while the band pressure cooks country, soul, blues in a way that forces some people to reach for extra hyphens in their description… they used to use the phrase “rock n roll” to describe this American mash up — Birds of Chicago still do.
Ticket are $10 in advance, $12 on the day of the show. Doors open at 7pm. Online and phone sales close at 2pm.
Pillage & Plunder w/ Slowriter @ The EARL

Currently, the band is finishing up work on their first full-length album to be released summer of 2014.

Ces Cru w/ Info Gates and Kidd Swift @ The Drunken Unicorn
There were times when more hip-hop albums sounded like this, like Ces Cru’s Constant Energy Struggles, the Kansas City duo’s debut full-length album on Strange Records. There were times when albums were formulated around concepts big and small, dedicated to pushing envelopes, sharing pin-pointed messages and built around lyrical conceits that required intense listening, confident rhyme flows that created new patterns, music that thumped and bumped and pounded and grooved.
Old School Saturday (OSS) @ The Sheraton Atlanta Hotel
Old School Saturday is back! ALL Old School Music, ALL Night, ALL That!” If you’re in the mood to throwback this weekend, then check out OSS this Saturday. No music made past 1999 guaranteed!

Young Widows w/ Helms Alee @ The EARL
Young Widows’ bruising 2006 debut, Settle Down City, introduced the Louisville, KY trio as an ugly force to be reckoned with. Two years later they dropped Old Wounds, their sophomore stomp that inspired at least a dozen imitators of varying degrees of success. From there the band traded some of their trademark fury for the bleak, widescreen atmospheres of In and Out of Youth and LIghtness. Now, three years later, Young Widows meld the strengths of their past and their tenacity for the future to forge an album perfectly befitting their merciless moniker.
Patrick Davis @ Eddie’s Attic

Underhill Rose @ Eddie’s Attic
Harmonies. Soul-touching lyrics. Eye-catching stage presence. Underhill Rose has put its talents to work to become synonymous with beautiful music, charming personalities and, recently, increased momentum. With Eleanor playing her distinctive claw-hammer style on a Deering banjo along with harmonica, Molly Rose on guitar and Salley plucking the upright bass, the trio has carved out a place in the Americana scene with songs that run the gamut from heart wrenching to sassy and playful to thought-provoking.

Fu Manchu w/ Electric Citizen @ The EARL
Originally formed in 1985 as a Black Flag-influenced hardcore punk band called Virulence, FU MANCHU has since become one of hard rock’s most celebrated names. The band released its first single “Kept Between Trees” in 1990 and in the years following, helped give rise to a celebrated style of heavy music tagged “stoner rock” alongside peers such as Kyuss, Monster Magnet and Sleep.
Tickets are $12 in advance, $14 day of show. Doors open at 8pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm day of show.
Mike Farris @ Eddie’s Attic
In music there are those special artists that seem to transcend genre and defy categorization.

His latest album, which was funded completely on Kickstarter, is expected for release later this year.

Anti-Nowhere League @ The Loft
The Anti Nowhere League set out on the road in 1980 to prove they could be the worst band on Gods earth loud, violent, obnoxious yobbos with one mission; to get banned from every TV show, radio station and newspapers as possible just for a laugh. They were hated by the general public as well as ‘real’ musicians who thought they were a disgrace to the music business(and of course the fact they were pulling more people in their live shows than they were). With numerous encounters with the authorities they have continued to play and release new material away from the public eye….In this day and age it does not seem quite as big a deal as it was back then when they stood alone now a few of the ‘real’ bands have taken up the ‘flag’ to be original with attitude. Long may independent bands continue keeping the music live and real. Long live the League!
Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show. Doors open at 7:30pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm day of show.
Surfer Blood w/ special guests @ The EARL
It is rare to come across an album as personal, dynamic, and intriguing as Pythons—but then again, rarely do bands these days have a story similar to the rise of Surfer Blood. Originally a dorm-room project, Surfer Blood quietly released their debut album “Astro Coast” in 2010 on indie label Kanine Records. It ended up garnering acclaim from nearly every vital music site and put them on the same stage as bands like the Pixies. Now, three years later, they’re ready to show how much they’ve grown, both as musicians and people, during their remarkably organic road to international acclaim.
Tickets are $10 in advance, $13 day of show. Doors open at 8:30pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm day of show.
