There’s an old saying here in the South. It goes, “When the world gets cold, go take in some hot jams.” Our suggestions for the weekend…
Friday, January 24 – Cody Simpson @ The Loft
All the way from Australia, this heartthrob of a singer/songwriter/guitarist takes his special Acoustic Sessions tour to Center Stage this weekend. He says his music is finally the way he wants it to sound. Hope you got a ticket to hear his surf-tastic tunes!
This show is SOLD OUT.
Friday, January 24 – Atlanta Symphony Orchestra @ Morgan Hall
Pianist Wu Han and ASO conductor Robert Spano team up for this low-key classical concert at KSU’s Bailey Performance Center. Go get cultured, y’all.
Doors at 7:30pm. Tickets are $8 – $40.
Friday, January 24 – Matthew Mayfield @ Eddie’s Attic
On his decision to pursue music, Matthew says, “When I was 9, I decided I was either going to be a bank robber/surfer or play in a rock n roll band. I’m not brave enough to ride the big waves and not radical enough to rob banks, so here I am with a guitar in my hand. I think my mother is very happy with that call.”
Doors open 6pm. Tickets are $10.
Friday, January 24 – Halcyon @ Eddie’s Attic
Deb Hunseder and Steph Callahan of Halcyon produce incredibly well received original songs, showcase excellent musicianship, chemical harmonies and energetic, engaging performances.

Sunday, January 26 – Erick Baker @ Eddie’s Attic
If you listen closely, you can hear a heartbeat in the songs of Erick Baker. A warm familiar pulse of love and loss echoing from somewhere just under the surface.

Doors at 9pm. Tickets are $12.
