Not ready for the weekend to be over? Do something fun tonight with one of these great shows!
Songwriter’s Open Mic at Eddie’s Attic
For over 19 years, we’ve hosted Atlanta’s premiere SONGWRITER’S OPEN MIC for the performing songwriter. National and local acts perform 2 songs each, with 3 finalists returning for a third song at the end of the evening for a chance to win a cash prize and a spot in our bi-annual, nationally acclaimed Open Mic Shootout. This is a great opportunity for up and coming talent to hone their skills and for listeners to see and meet tomorrow’s stars.
General admission tickets are $5 in advance, $6 at the door. Table seats are $6.25 each and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Doors open at 7pm. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 5pm on the day of the show.
Bear’s Den w/ Dan Mangan + Blacksmith, Christof at The EARL
“Without/Within,” the sophomore EP from critically acclaimed British trio Bear’s Den will be released March 4, 2014, via Communion Records. Ian Grimble (Travis, Manic Street Preachers) produced “Without/Within.” Of the new music Andrew Davie (vocals, guitar) notes, “The songs were in many ways our most personal yet and also our most ambitious sonically. Joey’s playing is particularly beautiful to me and his guitar and banjo melodies carry the songs so perfectly at times. Kev was experimenting more with synth bass and piano on top of drums before anyone else even picked anything up. I was experimenting for the first time in my life really on electric guitar and with delayed and reversed guitar loops. We all had our own responsibilities within this record and we all had complete belief and trust in each other. We wanted to push ourselves so that we could grow into the songs on the road and hopefully push ourselves to become a better live band because of it.”
Tickets are $12. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 6pm on the day of the show. Doors open at 8pm.
Breathe Carolina and Candyland at The Masquerade
Known for their genre-bending fuse of rock and electro-pop, Breathe Carolina’s fourth full-length studio album, Savages, is set to out-sell 2011’s successful ‘Hell Is What You Make It’, which hit #42 on the Billboard Top 200 and #2 on the electronic charts. The band skyrocketed to mainstream attention with their platinum selling 2012 single entitled “Blackout,” which hit the top 15 on Top 40 radio, and their seductively addictive music video for single “Hit and Run” which has received over 1.6 million YouTube views.
With its absorption of club culture sounds weaved within subtle pop frameworks, Swim is Caribou’s masterpiece-the record he’s wanted to bring to fruition for as long as he’s been making music. A Canadian from small-town Ontario now based in England, Snaith has been a leading figure in electronic music over the past decade. A mathematics scholar and an ingenious multi-instrumentalist/composer, he surprised critics and fans with 2007’s Andorra, a brilliant, electro-tinged pop breakthrough with a timeless grace that made most year-end “Best of” lists and won Canada’s prestigious Polaris Music Prize. After the startling infectiousness of Andorra, Swim is a more complex, multi-layered affair-ripe with fascinating rhythms, instrumentation, and vocals (including those of Born Ruffians’ Luke Lalonde, who appears on “Jamelia”)-that becomes more alluring with each listen. And it’s got Caribou floating.
