What’s Up Wednesday 9/17

It’s Hump Day, Atlanta! But don’t worry, here are some great shows for you tonight!

David Ramirez with special guest, Lucette at Eddie’s Attic

A man and his guitar… honest, unfiltered and true. In a landscape filled with Top 40 beats and harmonizing folk groups, a lone singer- songwriter definitely has his work cut out for him. But David Ramirez isn’t looking to top the charts. He just wants to tell the truth. Ramirez’s career has spanned 2 full lengths and 3 EP’s. His 2012 independently released album, Apologies debuted at #2 on iTunes Singer-Songwriter charts and #23 on Billboard Folk, garnering praise from The New York Times, American Songwriter and PASTE. Hometown magazine Austin Monthly calls Ramirez “one of Americana’s great undiscovered songwriters…” His latest release is The Rooster EP. Produced in 6 days by Ramirez and Danny Reisch (Shearwater, Okkervill River, White Denim), the 5 songs explore new sounds and test the limits of the folk/singer-songwriter genre. “The songs themselves are still rooted in folk, but I wanted to experiment with different sounds and textures. It’s subtle but it’s strong”.
General admission tickets are $13 in advance, $17 at the door. Table seats are $17.25 each and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 5pm on the day of the show.

Leopold and his Fiction w/ special guests at The EARL

Naked, stripped down and aching with adrenaline is the rawness of Leopold and his Fiction. Led by Detroit native Daniel James (lead vocal/guitar), their essential make up sprouted from collaborations made on the road in the whirlwind cycle of touring. From San Francisco to LA to Austin various musical adventures had come and gone, until James found a common vision in the musicians he’d met along the way.  The next Leopold and his Fiction album promises a full pallet of artistry from America’s deep, dark underbelly and rootsy fabric to a revival of an Rn’B-tinged, backwoods charm. It goes back to the days when Motown and Stax loaded singles with a hip-shaking groove on the A-side and a ballad in 6/8 on the B-side that could be crooned under the moonlight.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 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.
