Modern Skirts and The Features Get Poppy at The EARL on June 19

Modern Skirts and The Features Get Poppy at The EARL on June 19

Athens indie-pop princes Modern Skirts and Nashville psych-pop madmen The Features are joining forces at the EARL on Saturday, June 19 for a full night of pure unadulterated pop music. Both bands are hugely popular in Atlanta, and because of that we suspect this show will sell out. Get your tickets today, thank us June 19. Modern […]

Luis’ Three Picks For the Weekend

Luis’ Three Picks For the Weekend

Hello weekend, I missed you. It’s Friday morning and I’m already looking at the clock wondering why nobody has invented a time machine yet. I promise I wouldn’t use it for evil – well, maybe I’d have a Bill & Ted style adventure, but mostly just to skip the weekdays. Friday, May 7 – Soulphonics […]

Picture Book & Live Review: Beach House, Washed Out @ The EARL, April 29

Review by Jhoni Jackson; photos by Matt Smith (www.shadowboxerphoto.com) It wasn’t just the rarity of a smoke-free show that displaced Thursday night at the EARL from regularity. Two of indie’s most hyped acts – Washed Out and Beach House – caused a dreamy transformation. Pom-poms were strung in abundant rows along the ceiling and exaggerated […]

Neon Indian, Live at The EARL – June 9

Neon Indian, Live at The EARL – June 9

We’re no meteorologists here at AMG, but we do know that something happened to the easy-to-handle Spring weather last weekend. Not exactly saying apocalypse (yet), but we are afraid ATL’s summer may be unpleasantly muggy this year. Of course that negative attitude goes out the window once we start browsing through the calendar of summer concerts. We […]

Luis’ Three Picks: A Weekend of Shows in Atlanta – Alex Chilton Tribute, Megafaun, 500 Songs for Kids

As a 9 to 5’er, every weekend is like a mini-Christmas. After five days of early mornings and painful traffic jams, I get two days to sleep in, stay out late, and drink ungodly amounts of cheap beer while watching bands! So what’s on the books this weekend? Alex Chilton Tribute – Friday, April 30 – Star Community Bar Sort […]

CD Review: Plants and Animals — La La Land; Playing The EARL, June 5

Plants and Animals La La Land Secret City Records By Chris Homer La La Land, the second album from Montreal trio Plants and Animals, marks a major shift in the band’s sound. While Plants and Animals’ 2008 debut, Parc Avenue, was anchored by quiet folk melodies interspersed with huge choir choruses, blasts of brass horns […]

CD Review: Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers — Agridustrial; Playing The EARL May 8

Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers Agridustrial By Eileen Tilson Known for their ability to shake redneck country, punk, and hillbilly blues into a whiskey-infused shot of sin, Nashville-based Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers are back with their release of Agridustrial on their own Colonel Knowledge Records.  The band comes back guns blazing with just a few changes […]

CD Review: Everybody Was In The French Resistance … Now! – Fixin’ the Charts Vol. 1; Playing The EARL May 17

Everybody Was In The French Resistance … Now! Fixin’ the Charts Vol. 1 By Jennifer Gibson Art Brut’s Eddie Argos and his girlfriend Dyan Valdes of The Blood Arm may have made one of the most intellectually-stimulating records in recent memory. Stimulating, that is, for music geeks. For everyone else, it’s just one of the […]

Live Review: GG King, The Fresh & Onlys, King Khan & the Shrines @ The EARL, March 27

Live Review: GG King, The Fresh & Onlys, King Khan & the Shrines @ The EARL, March 27

Written by Jhoni Jackson Locally grown from Carbonas seeds, GG King played their raw, punk-inclined tunes as fast as their sound’s general tempo, cramming in as many songs as possible in the allotted time. The whole gang’s serious looks of concentration dominated their presence – until the drummer started making pig noises before the last […]
