Andrew Weaver w/ Metro Marrs & Erin Kirby at Vinyl
Thursday, November 14th at 8:00pm
Singer-songwriter Andrew Weaver, (Bremen, Georgia), began gaining attention as a 16-year-old contestant on 2018’s Season 1 American Idol, making it to the live taping of the show in Los Angeles.
After being eliminated in the final audition rounds of idol, Andrew headed to Atlanta where he caught the attention of Producer 808Blake (J.I.D, Earthgang, Nappy Roots) who took notice of Andrew’s songwriting ability. The two began working on a debut project for Andrew in May 2018, releasing his first single Yes or No, in October 2018.
Zero Mile Presents: Titus Andronicus with Partner at The EARL
Friday, November 15th at 9:00pm
In July of 2005, the rock band Titus Andronicus made their first live appearance, performing for a few friends in an unfinished basement. The ensuing decade would see nearly 800 shows, 18 members, and the release of three full-length albums and 14 7-inches, as the group rose from their obscure beginnings in the tri-state DIY scene to the heights of international “indie stardom,” only to (nearly?) throw it all away in a vicious cycle of depression and decadence. The culmination of that ten-year journey is The Most Lamentable Tragedy.

Turnover & Men I Trust at The Masquerade
Sunday, November 17th at 8:00pm
Hailing from Virginia Beach, Turnover emerged in the early part of the 2010s, quickly outgrowing their emo and punk roots to create a more introspective sound that bordered on dream pop and melodic, guitar-based indie rock. Nurturing longtime relationships with both Run for Cover Records and Philadelphia producer Will Yip, the band continued to evolve their lush, hazy sound over records like 2015’s Peripheral Vision and 2019’s Altogether.
Material Girls, Control Top & Warm Red at The Bakery
Monday, November 18th at 8:00pm
Material Girls only come out at night. The Atlanta sextet indulge in glam and goth while maintaining a percussive no wave edge on their new album Leather. It’s a pointed balance, but the combination comes naturally for these gutter dwelling creatures who cut their teeth on the sweaty Atlanta nightlife, and is enough to summon the ghosts of CBGB and Andy Warhol. The 8 song record explodes with post-modern sleaze and over the course of 30 minutes, the band ride a wave of malaise towards a decrepit paradise.
After a promising 4 song EP and a year spent touring, including a few dates supporting the B-52s’ Cindy Wilson, the gang is sharper than ever thanks to the addition of guitarist Robbie Rapp (Muuy Biien) and bassist Meghan Dowlen. The Siouxsie-inspired shrieks of Dowlen are a particularly sharp dagger in the Material Girls arsenal, which alternates between squalling psychedelia and apocalyptic post-punk. Echoes of Richard Hell and Pere Ubu flow through nihilistic lyrics, uncaged performances, and inventive riffs.
