Brace yourselves for the cold front coming in with an Atlanta concert! There’s lots going on tonight, so read below to decide which show you’ll attend.
Von Grey at Eddie’s Attic
Atlanta-based indie-alt-folk group von Grey has checked off more things on the proverbial band wish list in the past year than many bands do in a decade.They’ve appeared on “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Conan,” NBC’s “Rock Center with Brian Williams,” and CNN’s “Road Warriors.” The harmony-laced foursome has been called everything from an “Americana masterpiece” to simply “crazy-talented” by the media. The group has opened for Indigo Girls, Sarah McLachlan, Lindsey Stirling, Rusted Root, and Company of Thieves, and performed standout sets at SXSW, Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, and Gathering of the Vibes Festival.And, the group of four classically trained sisters has accomplished all of this without the help of a record label and before their 20th birthdays.
General admission tickets are $12 in advance, $16 at the door. Table seats are $15 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 6:30pm.
Eric Hutchinson & Tristan Prettyman at Center Stage
As Eric Hutchinson journeyed toward the making of Moving Up Living Down, the delightfully witty and supremely wise follow-up to his hit debut Sounds Like This, he developed a very simple rule regarding new songs. “I traveled so long and got to see so many people and places,” he says. “And sharing music with the fans every night got me thinking: The best concerts are when people sing along with me. So for the next one, what kind of songs do I want people singing with me? What kind of songs do I want people dancing to?” Get ready to sing and dance.
Tickets cost $20 in advance, $24 day of show. Doors open at 7pm.
