Here’s a quick look at the best shows and events happening in Atlanta this weekend Thursday, December 12th through Sunday, December 15th!
Trigger Hippy w/ Jive Revival at Vinyl – Atlanta
Friday, December 13th at 8:00pm
“We’ve come Full Circle & Then Some,” goes the chorus to the title track of Trigger Hippy’s sophomore album, and it’s the perfect description of the long road these experienced musicians have traveled to harness their collective roots – from country, Delta blues, R&B and gospel to Southern rock and funk. Trigger Hippy co-founders, Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman and songwriter bassist Nick Govrik, believe the band’s sophomore album, on Turkey Grass Records distributed by Thirty Tigers, embodies the music and vision they’ve chased since the two met 15 years ago.

MYFEVER / Brother Moses / Cloudland at The Masquerade
Saturday, December 14th at 7:00pm
