AMG Weekend Picks: Rock4Research, Guided By Voices, Taste of Atlanta and More!

This weekend is definitely a bit more relaxed than usual, with the exception of the mammoth food event that is Taste of Atlanta. We get the feeling that everyone is working on their Halloween costumes and stocking up on candy in time for next week’s spooky celebrations. But we’ve still got a good selection of shows and events that should get you away from that orange glitter and glue that are covering your house.

Friday, October 22 – Rock4Research at Vinyl

Modern Skirts and Tealights play this great benefit for the Children’s Tumor Foundation.

Saturday, October 23 – Fringe at Redeemer

The smart folks at Fringe mix classical chamber music, atmospheric electronica, indie films, an art gallery and more for a night of culture that is far from stuffy and welcome’s all into its fold.

Saturday, October 23 – Guided By Voices at The Buckhead Theatre

We hope you’ve got  your tickets for the indie rock reunion of the month (at the very least), because the Guided By Voices show in SOLD OUT!


Saturday, October 23 – A Fight to the Death with Jim White at The EARL

Local gypsy/world music rockers A Fight to the Death will be sweeping you away to new lands with Jim White on Saturday night.

Saturday, October 23 and Sunday, October 24 – Taste of Atlanta at Tech Square

We know many a foodie who is currently counting the minutes and saving up his calories up for the ultimate food of the year in one of the best – dare we say it – food cities in the country. Two days of delightful tastes and culinary amazement start this Saturday. And don’t forget to check out all the extra-special one-off events they’ve added this year for Inside the Food Studio, where you will learn the secrets behind Highland Bakery’s desserts, Holeman & Finch’s late-night burger and more!
