AMG Weekend Picks: David Sedaris, Drive-By Truckers, Joel McHale and More!

Finally, we can all step outside and breathe in the glorious cool air. Fall is officially here! And to celebrate the lovely new temperatures, there is a couple of great outdoors events for you this weekend, and well as some great rock shows, brilliant comedy and of course some great on-sales.

Thursday, October 7 – David Sedaris at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre

If dry wit and awkward tales of growing up are your thing, then you’ll be wanting to check out David Sedaris, whose books you already probably have.

Friday, October 8 – Menomena and Suckers at Variety Playhouse

We all like a good rock ‘n’ roll show, and Friday’s gig at Variety Playhouse should deliver in spades.

Saturday, October 9 – Rugby For Heroes at Atlanta Silverbacks Stadium

Watching one of the toughest sports out there in honor of great charities – the Wounded Warrior Project and Paws4Pets – is just a great deal for everyone.

Saturday, October 9 – Drive-By Truckers at Buckhead Theatre

The Georgia boys – and girl – come back to their homestate for a rollicking show at Buckhead Theatre.

Saturday, October 9 – Joel McHale at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre

Snarky, witty and just plain hilarious, we love to hear Joel McHale’s take on all that surrounds us, and we’re sure he’ll have plenty to say Saturday night.

Sunday, October 10 – Drive Invasion at Starlight Six Drive-In Theatre

We’re so very glad that the legendary Drive Invasion decided to move from the blazing-hot border of August and September to the cooler climes of mid-October. Check out the styling hotrods, greasy fair food, growling rock ‘n’ roll and classic movies on Sunday.
