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
Meatbodies with Purling Hiss at 529
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.
