What’s Up Wednesday 11/05

Don’t let the midweek blues get you down! We’ve got a ton of great shows happening in Atlanta tonight!

The Black Lillies at Eddie’s Attic

Black Lillies front man Cruz Contreras knows a thing or two about the road. After co-founding Robinella and the CCstringband with his wife, he spent nearly a decade traveling the road and making music from coast to coast. When his marriage – and the band – dissolved in 2007, he returned to the road … this time, as the driver of a truck for a stone company. It was here, over a year spent rolling down the highways of East Tennessee, that the songs and sounds that would form the nexus of The Black Lillies were conceived.

General admission tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Table tickets are $18.75 and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Online and phone sales close at 5:00 pm.


Cass McCombs with Meat Puppets at Vinyl

ass McCombs, a sixth generation Californian, has produced seven and a half albums in his decade-long career. Since his emergence at a 2003 Peel session, McCombs’ provocative and vibrant songs have been covered by numerous artists, including Bob Weir and The National, who performed “Love Thine Enemy” in 2012. McCombs’ work appears in diverse venues, from Thomas Campbell’s 2009 surf film “The Present,” to the Democracy Now News Hour, where in 2011, McCombs debuted the song “Bradley Manning.” Often misconstrued as a solo artist, McCombs’ music is built within a community of essential collaborators.

Tickets are $16 in advance, and $18 on the day of the show.  Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 6pm on the day of the show. Doors open at 7:30pm.


Dum Dum Girls with special guests at The EARL

For Dum Dum Girls, End Of Daze had signaled exactly that; an end to a part of her life that was confused, difficult, disastrous, and at times, redemptive. It was a marked comment to herself, for future reference, that what will be, will be, and that there is always exciting work to be done ahead. It is never that easy, though, and so was ushered in a new version of confusion, et al. In the summer of 2012, between tours supporting End Of Daze, she locked out the world and sat down in her  apartment to write a new record — clear view of the New York City sky through iron bars like a promise. Like all compulsive minds, she was waiting with bated breath (“and whispering humbleness”) to let the muse loose.
Tickets are $15 in advance, $18 on the day of the show. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 6pm on the day of the show. Doors open at 8:30pm.

Meatbodies with Purling Hiss at 529

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Meatbodies are heavy, groovy, psychedelic and headbanging. “Every person involved in this deserves to be high-fived until their hands chafe and bleed.” – NOISEY – “Chad & The Meatbodies’ B-side “Mountain” has the heaviness of a Black Sabbath song, the fuzziness of a FUZZ track, and the unexpectedly polished vocals of a 2011 or later album from Thee Oh Sees. Those are some big shoes to fill.” – THE BAY BRIDGED
Tickets are $10.  Online, outlet and phone sales close at 6:00 pm day of show. Doors open at 9:00 pm.

Matisyahu at Terminal West

Matisyahu has come a long way since 2005 when he released his breakout album, Live at Stubb’s (which reached #1 on the Reggae Albums Chart and #30 on the Billboard 200). Since then he has pushed himself dynamically and creatively, breaking with expectation at every turn and remaking his musical image with nearly every album. And his latest—Akeda (Uh-­‐kay-­‐duh)—is no different in this regard.

Tickets are $28.50. Doors open at 8pm. This event is +18. Find Tickets.
