Here is the scope on Atlanta’s music scene for Tuesday, January 13.
Nick and the Grooves (Atlanta Jewish Preview Party) @ Aisle 5
In leadup to the Atlanta Jewish Music Festival, this Atlanta based septet has entertained music lovers all over the southeast with their seamless blend of Jazz-Funk and Blues-Rock. Nick and the Grooves is led by guitarist Nick Edelstein, with Scott Ritshie (keys), Bill Smith (alto/tenor sax), John McKnight (drums) and Bryan Hall (bass). James King (trumpet), Will Scruggs (bari sax) and Mace Hibbard (sax) are Grooves-at-large.
Doors open at 6:30, show starts at 7:30. Ages 18+ only. $5 General Admission
Power Baby, Lilac Daze, Family Bike, Scrap Kids and Kid Brat @ WonderRoot
Tonight’s lineup at WonderRoot springs from all over the country. Newsweek claims that our own ATL native Power Baby is “the best thing to come out of Atlanta since The Beatles or The Boss.” In addition, the Maryland indie-punk trio Lilac Daze will produce vibes similar to those of Weezer, The Cure and Greenday. North Carolina band Family Bike will provide explosive tracks, with pounding guitar work but light-hearted keyboard compliments. Pennsylvania native punk band Scrap Kids started off as acoustic, and now occasionally plays full band. Bringing it back full circle is another ATL native Kid Brat. Started in 2012, this slop punk band claims they are “cuddly as shit and like pizza.”
Show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $5, all ages.
