We know it’s getting awfully cold outside, so we’ve compiled all of Atlanta’s Tuesday concerts right here so you can find an indoor show to enjoy!
Empires at Vinyl
With ORPHAN, Empires climb to rare heights. Their vivid rock ‘n’ roll is now fused with an imaginative and open-armed approach. Born of singer Sean Van Vleet’s fascination with contemporary popcraft, songs like “Please Don’t Tell My Lover” and the night-driving “How Good Does It Feel” see the Chicago-based band adopting time-honored romantic idioms, both musical and lyrical, to mask deeper and darker personal truths.
Tickets cost $10 in advance, $12 day of show. Doors open at 7pm.
Marshall Ruffin at Eddie’s Attic
The twenty-five year old roots-rock and blues singer-songwriter-guitarist grew up in typical Americana, where science was at the fabric of his family. After finding a guitar in his attic at age thirteen, Marshall taught himself to play. Just several short years later, he majored in jazz performance at the Berklee College of Music. It was while in Boston, Ruffin recognized and tapped into his songwriting skills and vocal gifts. Within a year after graduation, Marshall moved to Columbus GA for some Ma Rainey education, opened for dozens of regional and national artists, and signed with Jammates Records.
Death in June at The EARL
Boyfriend w/ The Madd Wikkid at 529
From the art school-educated street urchin antics of Kreayshawn and her White Girl Mob to the couture-wearing, booty-shaking schtick of Iggy Azalea, we’ve seen a bunch of white lady rappers come up lately in this post-Gillette era. But it wasn’t until New Orleans-based Boyfriend came along that we saw a rapper wearing granny glasses and thrift shop blouses while rapping about period sex and dildos. And while it might be tempting to write off the raunchy rhymes and a look pulled from the Williamsburg Buffalo Exchange as gimmicky, Boyfriend’s got flow.
Tickets are $8. Online and phone sales close at 6pm the day of the event. Doors open at 9pm.
