AMG Weekend Picks: Cracker & Camper Van Beethoven, Biz Markie, Fleet Foxes and More!

The heat is officially here people! You’ll either want to be basking in the full sun and getting used to the balmy atmosphere as soon as possible, or you’ll be avoiding the warmth in a cool air-conditioned club. Either way, we have some great suggestions for your weekend. And there’s even a few on sales at the bottom.

Nashville rockers The Kicks will be joined by fellow Nashvillians – and very much a buzz-band around those parts – Tesla Rossa.

Friday, May 13 – The Coathangers at The EARL

Atlanta’s own growling grrrl rockers The Coathangers just keep getting louder and louder, and we’ll be there to have our eardrums blown. The group plays The EARL with Tiger! Tiger! and The Husseins.
