Live Review: Twenty One Pilots @ The Tabernacle 10/6/15

In support of their latest album, Blurryface, alternative indie rock/rap group, Twenty One Pilots, rocked the walls of the Tabernacle Tuesday night to a sold out crowd of over 2,500+ fans. Epic, captivating, and energetic only begin to personify the atmosphere inside the Tabernacle, as the two Midwest boys took over the venue with their […]

Live Review: Cayucas @ The EARL 8/5

On Wednesday night, the backroom of The EARL was taken over by the nostalgia of long drives, sunny days, and the feeling of warm sand melting between your toes. From the moment West Coast natives, Cayucas, stepped onto the stage, they held their audience in a trance. The entire night, everyone swayed and danced to […]

Live Review: Shaky Knees Festival 2015

Ah, Shaky Knees. The third annual Shaky Knees Festival was this past weekend at Central Park, which was once the site of Music Midtown back in its original era. This weekend was one of those rare Atlanta festival weekends in which no rain was had and the sun was shining the whole time. So even […]

Show Review: Parquet Courts @ The EARL 1/29

It’s one of the first temperate evenings to settle into Atlanta since winter came along and forced us out of our tank tops and into our coats and hats. There were probably several parks where new couples strolled together, still able to genuinely relish holding hands. Restaurant patios were probably less barren and lonesome looking […]

Live Review: The Expendables @ The Loft, 2/18

By: Halina Wilusz I typically don’t dabble in the reggae scene much minus a brief stint on spring break following The Movement when I was 19, but the hype around this band had me intrigued. Originally from Santa Cruz, The Expendables, who have shared the stage with the likes of Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, No FX, […]

Live Review: Colin Meloy @ Variety Playhouse

By: Emily Jackson  Much like the lyrics of the songs themselves, the performances by Colin Meloy and Eleanor Friedberger last night at the Variety Playhouse told epic tales, complete with villains, heroes, challenges and triumphs. Both musicians are ordinarily the lead singers for more elaborate ensembles, but that didn’t diminish the success of the poetic […]
