Weekend Picks 11/28-11/30

Happy Friday Atlanta! For those of you less concerned with Black Friday and more concerned with what great live music you can see this weekend, we are here to help. Here’s our roundup of the best music happening this weekend!

Friday, November 28

Family and Friends @ Vinyl

As these things so often do, Family And Friends began as a lowly seedling of inspiration. “Good music, good people.” A stalk gave yield to branches. One became six, a collective of musicians by trade, lovers by spirit. Inspired by a life worth living, the Fam and Pals remained rooted with three ambitions in heart, mind, and soul: the people, the music, the memories. The reflection represented by blend of earnest folk rock and a communal spirit pouring a collective heart into something bigger than itself. An intangible force of an unfaltering love worth giving away. A Family And Friend tree ever-growing, ever-lasting.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 day of show. Doors open at 8pm. Show is at 9pm.




Augustana @ The Loft

Since starting while its members were in college, Augustana has built a remarkable history of their own. 2005’s “All The Stars and Boulevards,” its follow-up “Can’t Love, Can’t Hurt” in 2008, and most recently “Augustana” cumulatively exceed sales of 500,000 albums. In addition, they’ve enjoyed single sales of 2.5 million and counting. Meanwhile, “Boston”, “Sweet & Low”, and “I Still Ain’t Over You” vaulted to the Top 10 at AAA Radio, while “Boston” reached #1 at Hot AC and landed in the Top 25 of Top 40. Not to mention, they’ve played to packed houses around the world while headlining and supporting the likes of OneRepublic, Snow Patrol, Dashboard Confessional, and more.

Tickets are $20. Doors open at 7:30pm. Show is at 8:30pm.




Cousin Dan w/Shampoo @ The Earl

Cousin Dan is white R&B singer/gunshot survivor. He was born a full grown man with a mustache that the ladies just couldn’t resist. His live performance is something of legend, a mix of music and visuals that you can’t look away from. His New wave infused electro pop ballads will surely inspire greatness.

Tickets are $8. Doors open at 9pm.

Kill The Noise @ The Masquerade

There’s a new ghoul haunting parties worldwide – a diamond-eyed, baseball-capped skull slapped to turntables, grinning off sweat-drenched t-shirts, and gleaming from 20-foot neon screens on stage. It’s the bony mascot of Kill The Noise, the buzzing young producer and DJ whose uniquely intense take on electronic dance music has kept him rocking around the globe.

Tickets are $17 in advance. Doors open at 8pm.

Mono/Poly w/ Panther God, Heavy Color, With The Moon @ 529 in EAV

In defying the laws of tradition, Los Angeles based music producer Mono/Poly (born Charles Dickerson) has managed to outstrip the logics of multi-genre producing. Known for his distinct madness of face melting bass, paired with his dreamy astral soundscapes of glitch-based hip-hop, Mono/Poly has proved himself to be a natural phenomenon.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 day of show. Doors open at 9pm.




41st Bi-Annual Songwriter’s Open Mic Shootout @ Eddie’s Attic

The Bi-Annual Songwriter’s Open Mic Shootout is a head-to-head competition of Eddie’s Attic Open Mic Winners from the past 6 Months! Each act performs only one song, and single elimination determines if they move on to the next round. The venue gives away $1,000 to the ultimate winner, plus a number of other sweet prizes. Previous winners who have gone on to national acclaim include John Mayer and Jennifer Nettles (of Sugarland).

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show. Doors open at 6pm.





Sunday, November 30

Cracker (Matinee) w/ Special Guests @ The Earl

Cracker has been described as a lot of things over the years: alt-rock, Americana, insurgent-country, and have even had the terms punk and classic-rock thrown at them. But more than anything Cracker are survivors. Cofounders Lowery and Hickman have been at it for almost a quarter of a century – amassing ten studio albums, multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs that are still in current radio rotation around the globe (“Low,” “Euro-Trash Girl,”  “Get Off This” and “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out With Me” to name just a few), and a worldwide fan base – that despite the major sea-changes within the music industry – continues to grow each year.

Tickets are $18 in advance, $20 day of show. Show is at 1:30pm. Online and phone sales close at noon day of show.
