Get your weekend started one day early with an Atlanta concert! Keep reading to see where you’ll end up tonight!
Howe Gelb and Grant-Lee Phillips at Eddie’s Attic
Desert-folk iconoclast (SPIN) and Giant Sand visionary Howe Gelb has returned with The Coincidentalist, a transfixing collection of songs steeped in the dusty and discerning Americana he first began experimenting with more than 30 years ago. Produced and recorded by Gelb largely in his home base of Tucson, at Wavelab studio and Harvey Moltz’s studio, his latest solo album is somewhere between his 40h and 50th release, but characteristic to Gelb’s quizzical self he doesn’t know exactly; he thinks it’s bad luck to know. Superstitions aside, the record, self produced by Gelb and mixed by John Parish, is his strongest in years and culminates three decades of freewheeling and forward-thinking music making either as Howe Gelb, Giant Sand, its larger incarnation Giant Giant Sand or under the guise of The Band… of Blacky Ranchette, Arizona Amp & Alternator, ‘Sno Angel and OP8.
General admission tickets are $18 in advance, $23 at the door. Table seats are $22.50 and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Online and phone sales close at 5pm day of show. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Phillip Phillips at Atlanta Symphony Hall
One of the biggest singles of 2012, the quadruple-platinum “Home” announced Phillip Phillips as a singer/guitarist of both rare authenticity and massive pop appeal.

Phillips’s widely acclaimed debut also features the platinum single “Gone, Gone, Gone” and the Phillips’ penned “Where We Came From,” as well as a host of numbers that flaunt the 23-year-old Georgia native’s songwriting chops.
