What’s Up Thursday, May 8th


There’s no better way to end a beautiful day than with a night of concert-going. We’ve got quite a few for you tonight, so get your planners ready!

JOHNNYSWIM @ Smith’s Olde Bar

JOHNNYSWIM is a Los Angeles based duo composed of Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez. The two began writing and singing together in the spring of 2006 and found that their similar influences of folk, soul, and rock blended together lusciously. Nashville newspaper “The Tennesean” describes JOHNNYSWIM as “a mix of Lauryn Hill and John Mayer”.

Tickets are $17.50. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Online and phone sales end at 2pm.


Tyrone Wells: Closer Than Ever with special guest, Nick Howard @ Eddie’s Attic

Tyrone Wells got his start as a singer-songwriter and storyteller in Southern California coffee shops, building a ground swell of devoted followers that connected with his powerful voice, honest lyrics and personal anecdotes.  From this foundation, Tyrone went on to release two records with Universal Republic, build a national fan base by touring relentlessly with his band, land over 50 songs in TV and Film placements and launch several records to #1 on the iTunes Singer Songwriter charts. This journey has brought Tyrone full circle and he’s decided to bring things back to his roots for this tour so that he can have a “closer than ever” experience with you. The “closer than ever” tour is about a voice, a guitar, and one man’s story of loving, dreaming and growing.

Tickets are $25 at the door. Table seats are $25 in advance and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Doors open at 6:30pm. Online and phone sales close at 5pm.


The Spring DebuTease Ball // 21+ @ The Loft

The Atlanta School of Burlesque is proud to announce their DebutTease Ball – the official first performances of the newest Burlesque talent in Atlanta along with the best of the best that Atlanta has to offer in Burlesque and Variety! We offer a full-length Burlesque show steeped in the tradition of American Burlesque & Striptease.

Tickets are $25 each with VIP seating available for $40. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm.


TOBACCO w/ Stargazer Lillies @ The EARL

If the details seem scarce, it’s because that’s how TOBACCO likes to keep them. Hailing from an unspecified burg in rural Pennsylvania, somewhere north of Pittsburgh, he has successfully made a name for himself even as he’s avoided acknowledging that name’s legal counterpart. As both the frontman of Black Moth Super Rainbow and the sole creative engine behind TOBACCO, he’s earned the eager ears and prying eyes of doggedly loyal fans and smitten critics alike, a kindness he’s repaid by granting few interviews, obscuring his face in photos, and seeming wholly uninterested in the subject of his own identity.

Tickets are $15. Doors open at 8:30 pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm.


Dirtwire w/ Skymatic @ Vinyl

Dirtwire sits on the back porch of Americana’s future, conjuring up a gris-gris of sound with an amalgamation of traditional instrumentation, global percussion, and electronic soundscapes. Comprised of multi-instrumentalist David Satori (Beats Antique) and Evan Fraser (Hamsa Lila; Stallamara), the result is a rebirth of Americana and beacon for a post-millennial return to downhome goodness.

Tickets are $12. Doors open at 11pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm.
