ATL this weekend - Anna Kramer, Of Montreal, Andrew Bird, Nada Surf/Rogue Wave

For music fans in Atlanta, this weekend marks the start of a strong stretch into the spring. Lots of great bands are coming through, and you can expect a lot of coverage here on C&T. This Friday night Anna Kramer (honored as Atlanta's best local singer/songwriter in 2005) headlines at The EARL, bringing her brand of kickass country-rock to the East Atlanta Village. On Saturday, options abound. Of Montreal at the VP, Andrew Bird at Eyedrum, and Nada Surf/Rogue Wave at The Loft. All should be worth seeing. However, if you're on the fence or unsure about which to see, this post should provide a little guidance.

Below you'll find samples of each of the aforementioned bands. Give 'em a listen and make some weekend plans. I'm planning on Anna Kramer on Friday and Of Montreal on Saturday. Gonna be a great weekend!

I once dropped my pager at the EARL, and went back the next day to retrieve it. The bartender told me, "The EARL is your friend!" True dat.
