Mieka Pauley and Eryn McHugh @ Eddie’s Attic
Special guests: Ghosts Along the Brazos. Mieka Pauley possesses a voice that flows like good whiskey and a frankness that makes Alanis Morissette look shy. She conjures up a sonic immediacy with the same masterful command as Ani DiFranco with driving, yearning melodies that stand alongside the work of Michelle Shocked, Neko Case and Emmylou Harris. Creative Loafing once wrote of Atlanta native Eryn McHugh: Though her drop-dead looks may cause some to dismiss her, there’s substance to this 21-year-old Atlanta native. Her self-titled debut (while a little slick), finds her running her soulful voice over surprisingly diverse musical terrain, sashaying from pop and country to gospel and soul without ever sounding lost.
Karma Lingo @ The Drunken Unicorn
Also playing: Cicada Rhythm, Boomfox and Hannah Washington. With musicals influences from Siouxie and the Banshees, Metric and The Cure, these Atlanta locals aren’t to be missed! Come support Karma Lingo and special guests tonight at the Drunken Unicorn as part of “Four Seasons II: Summer Madness”.
Secondhand Swagger @ The Earl
Also playing: The Mar-Tans. Secondhand Swagger is an Atlanta-based band with a passion for vintage sounds and style, disciples of soul music from the 1960s and 70’s.
