Here’s a quick look at the best upcoming events in Atlanta this weekend, Thursday, November 29th through Sunday, December 2nd!
DIP, Dot.s, & Superbody at The Earl
Thursday, November 29th at 9:00pm
Christopher Grimmett, one of the two members of DIP, says the band was created at a Super Bowl party in 2010 he and friend Parks Miller “weren’t paying attention to.” “We were standing around various dips that were on a snack table and just musically saying ‘dip’ over and over and we were like ‘Wow, what if we made a song out of this?’” Grimmett says. “We just continued the joke from then on, and we’re just not going to let it die.” DIP plays its own brand-new genre. According to Grimmett, the genre of DIP music is defined as having the same number of beats per minute and same drum beat in every song. In addition, every song repeats one word: “dip,” of course. Having opened for acts like Corey Feldman, Andrew W.K. and more, DIP is a live show that must be experienced to understand.
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.
The Fritz w/ Fux at Vinyl
Thursday, November 29th at 8:00pm
The Fritz is a soul-driven dance rock band hailing from Asheville, NC. The group’s aggressive approach to funk, soul, and rock creates a sound that is uniquely their own. Their high-energy, danceable songs provide a platform for each member to shine. With powerful vocals, climactic solos, and tight grooves, The Fritz has built a devoted following and is captivating audiences everywhere. Originally formed in the rehearsal spaces of University of North Florida’s School of Music, The Fritz discovered an immediate chemistry. Drawing on influences such as Prince, Talking Heads and Jimi Hendrix, the quintet integrated their diverse musical tastes and began writing music together.
Fux was started by Mark Sultan after years of freelance playing around the east coast. The name derives from composer Johann Joseph Fux, who helped modernize Western Music. Blending their love for Phish, Umphrey’s McGee, TAUK, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Steely Dan and many classic rock bands, Sultan set out to find his brothers (Reade Alexander, Ryan Buck and Luke Klaer) and thus in an erotic crossfire hurricane FUX was born.
H2O50 Fest ft. Man or Astro-Man, Omni, 86 and more!
Friday, November 30th – Sunday, December 2nd
Henry Owings is turning 50. Big effin’ whoop-dee-doo!
In an attempt to REALLY REALLY have a great party, Henry is digging back into his 30 years of being in the music biz and having nothing but his friends perform in a multitude of cities, at a multitude of venues and, yes, even a show at his old stomping grounds Whirlyball Atlanta.
There’s bands that haven’t performed in the South for 20 years, there’s a band that hasn’t played for 30 years, new bands, old bands. And yes, there will still be some suprises.
It is a birthday after all.
Wristbands will be available on a first come first served basis.
Any profits will go to the Innovation Law Lab!
