Radiolucent w/ Aaron Lee Tasjan at The EARL

Radiolucent was formed in early 2007. The years have brought about several evolutions with band members and sounds, but what we now know as Radiolucent is a hard-hitting, heart-felt, full-on group of Georgia boys who want to make the best music possible. Now consisting of Michael Mann, Zach Neal, Dylan Andrews, Clint Poe, and Mike Cowan, they’re bridging influences such as 60’s Rock’n’Roll, Soul/R&B, Gospel, Country, and a little bit of pop sensibility. They have managed to find a path in music that is genuinely their own world.

Tickets are $7. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 6pm on the day of the show. Doors open at 9pm.

Atlanta Rhythm Section at Eddie’s Attic

Formed from the cream of Atlanta’s studio musicians, the Atlanta Rhythm Section (actually hailing from nearby Doraville, Georgia) came together in 1970 after working on a Roy Orbison recording session. After an extended break, the band got back together in the mid-‘90s and re-recorded some of their best and best-known songs. The live-in-the-studio sound of Atlanta Rhythm Section ‘96 presents a different, less polished take on some classic tunes and captures the sound of their live performances from that period. It was around this time that ARS was elected to the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. The band was honored at a September 1996 induction ceremony at the Georgia World Congress Center.

General admission tickets are $35 in advance, $42 at the door. Table seats are $43.75 each and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 4pm on the day of the show. Doors open at 5pm.


Tyler, the Creator at The Tabernacle

Hawks w/ The Powder Room at The EARL

HAWKS have made a respected art of designed carelessness, all rusted strings and chugging groove, honing what has become a finely out-of-tuned craft following in the traditions of labels like Touch and Go, Amrep and Trance Syndicate. Forming in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, mid November 2007, their raw guttural tone and menacing live performances have since given rise to a strong local and regional following.

Tickets are $7. Online and phone sales close at 6pm on the day of the event. Doors open at 9:30pm.


Sunday, December 14th

Goapele at The Loft

Seamlessly blending genres while refusing to be limited by the “neo-soul” tag, the eloquent singer/songwriter completed her first release Closer in 2001 and never looked back. Embraced from the beginning by critics and fans alike, Goapele craved the perfect niche for herself as she created music that fused jazz, soul and hip-hop with her own beautiful poetry. Yet, while the Oakland native and former Berklee College of Music student has continued to grow as artist and live performer in the eleven years since her debut, Goapele is also known as a savvy businesswoman.

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show. Doors open at 7pm.


Living Colour at The Masquerade

During the 1980s, rock had become completely segregated and predictable, the opposite of the late ‘60s/early ‘70s, when such musically and ethnically varied artists as Jimi Hendrix, Sly & the Family Stone, and Santana ruled the Earth. But bands such as New York’s Living Colour helped break down the doors by the end of the ‘80s, leading to a much more open-minded musical landscape that would eventually pave the way for future bands (Rage Against the Machine, Sevendust, etc.).

Tickets are $20 in advance. Show starts at 7pm.

Rich Robinson at Eddie’s Attic

With the release of his third solo album, The Ceaseless Sight, Rich Robinson, best known as the guitarist, songwriter, and founder of The Black Crowes, completes the solo artist evolution that he began ten years earlier. In his album review for Rolling Stone, David Fricke sums up that evolution: “Rich Robinson has been a gathering storm, closing in on a lyrically spiritual, musically earthy balance of electric-blues, bravado, psychedelic-country exploration and almost courtly vocal cool.”

General admission tickets are $22 in advance, $28 at the door. Table seats are $27.50 each and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 5pm on the day of the show. Doors open at 7:30pm.
