AMG Weekend Picks: The Lighthouse and the Whaler, Girl Talk, Colour Revolt and More!

Gigs and parties are back on with full force this weekend, and you’ve got a great list of fun stuff to choose from. Indie folk, sharp rock, dance parties and more are in our recommendations. And be sure to have a look at our mammoth list of on sales at the bottom!

Thursday, January 20 – World History, The Lighthouse and the Whaler at WonderRoot

The Lighthouse and the Whaler is one of our favorite bands at the moment. Lush movements with fun indie folk pop creating a rousing sound is just what we want on a chilly Thursday night. Pair them with rowdy sing-a-long masters World History, and you’ve got a winning gig.

$5 at the door

Thursday, January 20 – Ben Deignan at Smith’s Olde Bar

Local music hero Ben Deignan will be recording his live DVD tonight. Get to Smith’s Olde Bar to be a part of Atlanta rock history.

Friday, January 21 – Girl Talk at The Tabernacle

We hope you’ve got your tickets for the ultimate party with cut-n-paste fun creator Girl Talk. Because this gig is completely SOLD OUT!


Saturday, January 22 – Colour Revolt at Vinyl

Mississippi’s Colour Revolt continues their “come back” after being left label-less by Fat Possum. And looks like the experience hasn’t done them any harm, with The Cradle out on Dualtone Records being released last year to critical acclaim.

Saturday, January 22 – Old School Saturday at The Sheraton Atlanta Hotel

We love this monthly dance party that brings back the sounds of hip-hop and soul from the ’80s and ’90s. It’s always packed so buy your tickets now.

Sunday, January 23 – Lost in the Trees at The EARL

North Carolina’s Lost in the Trees gathers together folky and classical sounds to make a lovely large group that we just adore.
