AMG Weekend Picks: The Kicks, Modern Skirts, FUN, Indigo Girls and More!

This weekend is turning out to be a rocker – albeit a pretty cold one. Luckily, you’ll be dancing, bopping, laughing and grooving enough not to notice. Take a break from the mad shopping to enjoy some music. And if you must buy some Christmas presents, we have a great list of on sales too.

Thursday, December 9 – The Kicks, The Bridges at Smith’s Olde Bar

The Kicks are from Nashville and know how to rock ‘n’ roll, in a South-meets-indie-meets-pop sensibilities, and you’re going to love it. The Bridges sound as sweet as they look, mixing the temperament of The Bangles and the grooves of Elvis Costello. You could do a lot worse than seeing both bands at Smith’s Olde Bar tonight.

Thursday, December 9 – Awolnation, Weapons of Audio, Cousin Dan at The Drunken Unicorn

Red Bull Records are bringing their dark ‘n’ dangerous band Awolnation to Atlanta with our own hip-hop/electro pop act Weapons of Audio and Cousin Dan.

Friday, December 10 – Modern Skirts, Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun at The EARL

Taking a turn away from sharp pop and moving towards to fuzzy lofi indie rock, Modern Skirts are certainly making some interesting changes. They’ll be playing with Atlanta’s electro rockers Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun.

Friday, December 10 – Indigo Girls at The Tabernacle

Lovely local singer-songwriter duo Indigo Girls are gathering their friends together for a holiday show at The Tabernacle on Friday night.

Saturday, December 11 – FUN at The Loft

We hope you got your tickets for the incredibly FUN (sorry we couldn’t resist) show this Saturday at The Loft, because it is SOLD OUT!

Saturday, December 11 – Louis CK: Word at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre

The kids really love Emmy winner Louis CK’s dark, wry, observational humor, so maybe you should too.
