What’s Up Wednesday 9/10

Happy Hump Day, Atlanta! Here’s what’s going down today!

Pain of Salvation at The Loft

Pain of Salvation is a Swedish Progressive Rock band headed by Daniel Gildenlöw; the band’s lyricist, chief composer, guitarist, and lead vocalist. Their sound is characterised by powerful, accentuated guitar work, broad vocal range, abrupt switching between heavy and calm passages, intense syncopation, and polyrhythmic experimentation. They will be making a much-anticipated return to kick off ProgPower USA XV at the Midweek Mayhem show.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $35 on day the of the show, and VIP tickets are $50. Online and phone sales end at 5:00 p.m. day of show. Doors open at 6pm. 



Steve Forbert at Eddie’s Attic

“Romeo’s Tune” was the song that gave me a ‘career’,” says Steve Forbert of his signature song and breakthrough hit. “If you can conjure up six or seven hit records, wonderful. But you’ve got to have one. At least it gives you a ticket into the show.” Even so, a 21-year-old Forbert didn’t leave his home in Meridian, Mississippi for New York driven to make hit records. He just wanted to play. “There weren’t many options in Meridian. We didn’t even have coffee houses. We had pizza joints. I was supposed to go to Millsaps College in Jackson, but I didn’t want to. Instead I went to NY. I had no real plan, I just dove in.”
General admission tickets are $20 in advance, $26 at the door. Table seats are $25 and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Online and phone sales close at 5:00 pm day of show.




Kopecky Family Band at Vinyl

The Kopecky Family Band – a non-traditional family, at that – is dynamic, and they wield an equally dynamic slew of instruments. Their thoughtful songwriting is supported by a diverse backdrop of sound. And the musical canvas is covered with broad brushstrokes – ranging from clanging tambourines and guitars, booming percussion, intelligent string arrangements, and triumphant horns. These six bandmates – siblings, if you will – swap their musical tools without a second thought, creating an emotive, adventurous, and energetic environment onstage.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 on day the of the show. Online and phone sales end at 6:00 p.m. day of show. Doors open at 7pm.



Little Tybee w/ Adron at The EARL

One might think from their humble beginnings in the backwaters and basements of coastal Georgia to their headlining shows at some of Atlanta’s most well known independent venues that the members of Little Tybee were the harbingers of some secret formula for artistic success. In reality, they are simply a group of friends who couldn’t stop making music together if they tried.

Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 on day the of the show. Online and phone sales end at 6:00 p.m. day of show. Doors open at 8:30pm.
