IRRELEVANT MUSIC FESTIVAL 2019 at 529 & The Earl

Irrelevant Music Fest, once again organized and presented by Kyle Swick, is back in July with a streamlined look for 2019. The fest, anchored between East Atlanta staples 529 and the EARL, boasts the same focus on local heavy hitters and nationally obscure icons that made past iterations bizarrely educational experiences. – Immersive Atlanta
Eyes Set To Kill “The Attention: Reach 10 Year Tour” at The Masquerade
Thursday, July 18th at 7:00pm
Formed in 2004 by sisters Alexia and Anissa Rodriguez, Arizona’s Eyes Set to Kill set out to create their own take on the screamo genre. The group combines the driving emotion of Thursday and Thrice with technical hardcore reminiscent of Walls of Jericho and Poison the Well. The result is a fusion of the heavy and the melodic, with Alexia Rodriguez’s vocals soaring high over the thunder of chugging guitars and Anderson’s tortured screaming, creating a sound that expands the boundaries of the genre, moving away from the screamo blueprint. Catch them at The Masquerade with support from SET TO STUN, Vagrants and Atlanta’s own The Keepsake.
The Andrews Brothers Dueling Pianos at The Vista Room ATL
Friday, July 19th at 9:00pm
The Andrews Brothers combine unparalleled musical talent with side-splitting humor to make sure that your party becomes just that….a party. Each song is requested by your guests, and The Andrews Brothers know well over 1,000 popular songs! The audience is pleasantly persuaded to become part of the show, and even the most bashful and self-conscious patron will soon be singing gleefully at the top of their lungs!

Spin Doctors and 10,000 Maniacs at The Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater

Thirty years. It’s an eternity in rock ‘n’ roll and a marathon for the bands who fly its tattered flag. Revisit the class of 1991, when the Spin Doctors released their chart topping album POCKET FULL OF KRYPTONITE featuring the hits “Little Miss Can’t be Wrong” and “Two Princes.” With an additional 5 albums to their name, the Spin Doctors is still making music likes their lives depend on it and still shaking the room.
