SOB x RBE at The Loft
Saturday, October 13th at 7:00pm
SOB X RBE is the biggest thing to come out of Vallejo since Mac Dre and, like the late Bay Area pioneer, the group makes rap songs that capture both the exuberant energy and gritty foundation of their Northern California soil. The four-man group comes from a small city with a rich rap history and, over the last two years, they’ve built on the groundwork that was laid before them, taking their homegrown sound to new heights.
The Artisanals w/ The Pollies at The Earl
Saturday, October 13th at 8:00pm
With sonic influences ranging from the heartland rock of Bruce Springsteen (“Angel 42”), and neo-psychedelia anthems of My Morning Jacket (“Pound The Rock”), to the dream-pop work of The Cars and The War On Drugs (“Drag”), The Artisanals 10-track LP showcases Delaware and Houle’s knack for writing hooks as well as their ear for quality production. The album utilizes everything from a gong, organ, piano, sitar, french horn, trombone, and koto, to a string section sourced from the nearby University of Iowa. Mastered by Howie Weinberg, (Spoon, Ryan Adams, Nirvana), there’s no filler on The Artisanals. From start to finish, this record is a straight banger.
CUSSES w/ HolyBeach, Shehehe & Twin Criminal at 529
Saturday, October 13th at 9:00pm
Atlanta Rhythm Section at Heritage Sandy Springs
Sunday, October 14th at 6:30pm
Berndsen w/ Dot.s and Fantasy Guys at The Earl
Monday, October 15th at 8:00pm
There’s no lack of remarkable musicians and interesting characters in Iceland. Take David Berndsen for instance, he’s a bearded pop icon in his home country who’s known for his obsession with all things eighties. Even though Soft Cell, OMD, Yazoo, Visage, the Human League and Ultravox have collectively been swept under the rug of musical history, they still have one hardcore fan left in Berndsen. His love for this particular period is seen in everything he does, from the music he creates, to the outfits he wears on stage, to his music videos. He’s released two records so far, Lover In The Dark (2012, released in Iceland, Germany, Netherlands and Japan) and Planet Earth (2013).
Catch this rare performance with Atlanta Indie-Pop favorites Dot.s and Fantasy Guys!
