Check out the concerts happening in Atlanta tonight:
Lera Lynn w/ Dylan LeBlanc at Vinyl
Born in Houston, Texas, Nashville-based, Georgia-bred singer-songwriter, Lera Lynn’s music may be hard to categorize, but that is likely why she appeals to so many. “There are definitely aspects of earlier country in there, rockabilly and Western swing, music of the Patsy Cline era,” Lynn says. “I take some things from people like Conway Twitty and some of the other old country greats, and that’s very different from what country is now.” Lynn’s new album, The Avenues, produced by Joshua Grange, was released on Sept. 9, 2014.
Glen Phillips at Eddie’s Attic
Glen Phillips started his first band, Toad The Wet Sprocket in Santa Barbara at age 15. After six albums and a substantial string of hits, the group disbanded in 1998. Phillips began touring as a solo act after Toad the Wet Sprocket’s demise, and has released 5 solo records and two EPs, collaborated on two projects (Mutual Admiration Society and Works Progress Administration), released an EP with Plover (with Neilson Hubbard and Garrison Starr) and an album as RemoteTreeChildren (with Portland’s John Askew).
Tickets cost $25 in advance, $30 day of show. Table seats are $31.25 and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Doors open at 6:30pm.
My Brightest Diamond w/ special guests at The EARL
Not many people can front a rock band, sing Górecki’s Third Symphony, lead a marching band processional down the streets of the Sundance film festival and perform in a baroque opera of their own composing—all in a month’s time. But Shara Worden can. Her multi-faceted career as My Brightest Diamond, which began with an acclaimed independent rock record, has reflected her journey into the world of performing arts. This Is My Hand, her fourth album, marks a confident return to rock music, one informed by her mastery of composition and a new exploration into the electronic.
Twin Studies w/ The Dig and Weary Heads at The Drunken Unicorn
They began in summer 2012 as a recording project by Jay Stanley. For early live shows, Jacob Armando, Katie Wray, and Garrison Taylor were recruited. Currently the line-up has settled to Jay Stanley, Aubry Meers, Jesse Kray and Jacob Armando. In February of 2014, the debut EP from Twin Wtudies, “Precious Places” was released.
Tickets cost $6 for 21+ at the door and $8 for 18+ at the door.
Foxygen w/ Dub Thompson at The Loft
Tickets cost $15 and the show is 18+. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 6pm on the day of the show. Doors open at 8pm.
