Here’s a quick look at the best shows and events happening in Atlanta this weekend Thursday, November 28th through Sunday, December 1st!
Dot.s, The Mute Sphere, bandanna at The Earl
Friday, November 29th at 8:00pm
Dot.s is an endeavor to take “dance music” far from where it comfortably rests in its current, popular state. We venture to challenge the status of an art form that began as something primal and turned into something calculated and boring and kinda depressing. Drums, bass, and synthesizers rest in the center of our five-piece arrangement, followed by whatever auxiliary instrumentation feels cozy on top of that. We hope to give you something that is as fun and refreshing as our collective ideology: that sounds can prove-ably change the way people act, and should, thus, be made with obsessive care.
Dayroom 25th Anniversary reunion shows at The Vista Room ATL
November 29th & November 30th at 8:30pm
DAYROOM | Reuniting for Two Shows ONLY!
DAYROOM, the popular alt-rock band from Athens, GA is back for two nights only this November to rekindle your love of late nights, catchy lyrics, and addictive tunes. Best known for their raucous stage shows and willingness to experiment musically onstage, Dayroom captured the essence of college rock ‘n’ roll in the pre-Internet age. Formed in 1990, Dayroom quickly grew from a college side project formed by high school friends into a beloved staple of the Athens and Atlanta music scenes. The band made a name for itself by touring heavily, starting at its home base at University of Georgia and spreading throughout the South, eventually playing 250 days a year all over the United States and Europe and releasing three studio albums before amicably calling it a day in 2000.
