Event Link

ZALE is a boundary-pushing, unapologetic alternative rock 5 piece based in Atlanta, GA. Ethereal melody meets massive carnal beats and catchy rude riffs to deliver alternative music with moxie. This young indie group has sold out venues like Eddie’s Attic, The Georgia Theatre, and The 40 Watt Club, touring the southeast supporting debut release Fortress. ZALE is currently recording their second LP at Madison Records to be released spring 2018. ZALE opened for The Revivalists and Bright Light Social Hour, played Bragg Jam and Dogwood Festival and looks forward to a full fall tour schedule.

Established in Atlanta, GA in 2014, The Night Shift. is a regional touring alternative rock trio. From soft compositions to heavy rock grooves, The Night Shift. colors the air with sweet, sonic riffs atop a tight rhythm section creating many different musical timbres. The band has developed a universal sound incorporating influences from many genres including alternative rock, psych rock, folk, and jam music. The Night Shift. expresses deep human emotion and encourages connectivity, mindfulness, and love to everyone they meet. 


Tommy Talton Benefit – Wet Willie, Mike Veal Band, Jeff Mosier at The Vista Room ATL

Friday, November 16th at 9:00pm

Event Link

Tommy Talton is a Southern Singer-Songwriter who’s passion for music has carried across decades. 
As a musician, live shows are a large part of his income. Tommy has recently received a health diagnosis of small growing cancer in the lung that required lung surgery, putting him out of performing until at least the new year, possibly more. This benefit was created for those of you who know Tommy and/or know his music and would love to help out an amazing man, with the medical expenses that will undoubtedly accrue. His prognosis is positive and he hopes to overcome this setback and be back to perform next year. 

All proceeds from Tickets and Table fees with be donated to Tommy’s Medical Expenses. A portion of sales will also be donated. Let’s celebrate Tommy and help him get back on his feet and back on stage!

All good vibes are welcome and as a family, we are thankful for all the support!


Omni w/ Warm Red & Rated Age at The EARL

Saturday, November 17th at 9:00pm

Event Link

Framed from within the relentless heatwave of Atlanta, Georgia, Omni cuts through the oppressive humidity of the gilded southern capital with a cool and breezy combo of lo-fi nonchalance. In paying homage to post-punk forebears like Pylon, Wire and Devo, Omni delivers a succinct and focused sound on their 2016 debut. Strung taut with wiry guitar and incisive rhythms, their approach is not without plenty of sneaky, danceable melodies to round off the hard angles. Indeed, ‘Deluxe’ represents a mission statement to cruise a steady though lavish wave of disenchantment like it’s 1979.


Nikki & The Phantom Callers w/ Will Stewart, Slow Parade & more at 529

Saturday, November 17th at 9:00pm

Event Link

Atlanta’s Nikki & the Phantom Callers are a jangling country-tinged indie-rock outfit with one boot heel planted firmly in retro 1960s sounds and the other in the now. Leader Nikki Speake —also a member of garage power trio Midnight Larks and all-girl psych rockers Shantih Shantih— has shared bills with Shannon and the Clams, L.A. Witch, The Legendary Shack Shakers, King Khan & the Shrines, Tav Falco, Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires, Banditos, Lydia Loveless and many more, and has played in front of thousands at major Southeastern festivals such as Project Pabst, 420 Fest, Muddy Roots and Music Midtown.
