One day closer to the weekend and one week closer to Halloween – celebrate with a Thursday night concert at one of Atlanta’s awesome venues!
The Last Bison at Vinyl
In 2012 The Last Bison seemingly rose from the marshes of southeastern Virginia to captivate the national music scene with a rare blend of music that NPR dubbed, “Classical influenced southern folk rock.” Commenting on the band’s self-released debut album, Quill, a blogger for the popular music sharing site NoiseTrade remarked: “(The Last) Bison has already crafted a sound that is threaded with their own singular strands of creativity. Songs unfurl in textured, poetic waves that are based far more in inspiration than imitation.”
Tickets cost $10 in advance, $12 day of show.Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 6pm on the day of the show. Doors open at 7pm.
Brass Bed w/ Lucis Flux at The EARL
Listen through the ethereal haze that Brass Bed has created on The Secret Will Keep You, and you will find a soulful band suspended in a moment of frustration and anxiety. It’s the sort of frustration that comes from growing old and realizing that the light at the end of the tunnel may just be the remnants of some dying star. As they settled down to make their 3rd LP, they were determined to ditch the obtuse lyrics, playground song craft, and squeaky precision and bare their teeth, plaque and all. The result is a maddening blend of swirling, biting psychedelia, at once as pensive as a black hole and explosive as a dying star. A universe of guitar feedback and deconstructed keyboard beds pulling the listener apart in the gravity of full analog stereo.
Tickets are $7. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 6pm on the day of the show. Doors open at 8:30pm.
KING at The Loft
Twin sisters Paris and Amber Strother and musical compadre Anita Bias are KING. In 2011 KING independently released their first EP to much acclaim; title track “The Story,” (featured on GLAMOUR‘s Top Songs Playlist), “Supernatural” (NPR’s Song of the Day) and “Hey” (featured in 2014 motion picture ‘About Last Night’) make up the 3-piece introduction to their carefully crafted future-soul sound. Hours after the release, their EP had traveled far to music lovers and tastemakers alike, trending on Twitter and making new fans of many. KING have since been preparing their debut full-length album due for release Fall 2014 and are excited to invite their listeners further into their sound.
Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 day of show. Doors open at 8pm.
Jay Nash w/ Josh Day at Eddie’s Attic
The legend Levon Helm said that if you give it good concentration, good energy, good heart, and good performance, the song will play you. If that’s true, then Jay Nash and Josh Day are well and truly played by the set of songs in their debut EP, “Meet The Contenders.” The collection breathes with musicality and grit in the tradition of heroes—The Band, Tom Petty, The Dead, Dylan. Thrumming and heady, with a steady heartbeat and a hint of honky-tonk, this EP speaks of wanderers and highways, lovers and losers, good times and missed chances, swimming pools and movie stars, all with a ferocity born of hard work and honed skill.
***THE EVENT TIME HAS CHANGE FROM 8 PM TO 9:15 PM***
Ne-Yo w/ Kandace Springs and Kevin Ross at The Tabernacle
