Atlanta/Athens concert info
Just some quick tidbits, mostly in chronological order...
The Features, Wax Fang, and Luigi are playing a free show at The EARL on Saturday, January 27. I hope to be there.
The Features - The Beginning (week one)
Luigi - Mariposa
Georgia Fireflies will play the Aurora Coffee location in the Virginia Highlands at around 8pm on Saturday, January 27. It's free, too.
C&T local faves The Preakness have a 4-song 7" release at the presses right now, and they'll be playing a free acoustic show at Aurora Coffee in Atlanta's Little 5 Points on Sunday afternoon (about 5pm).
The Preakness - What They're Saying (demo)
Ice Cream Socialists have just booked a headlining gig at the 40 Watt in Athens on Thursday, February 1. Don't know who else is on the bill, but that should be fun.
Ice Cream Socialists - Day of the Danny
The Feb. 3 Yo La Tengo show at Variety Playhouse and the March 14 Band of Horses/Cary Ann Hearst [love her!]/Arizona show at The EARL are nearly sold out. If you want tix, buy 'em soon. I just bought mine for Band of Horses, et al., but I'll probably miss Yo La Tengo to go see How I Became the Bomb that night in Athens.
Yo La Tengo - Beanbag Chair
Band of Horses - Funeral
Cary Ann Hearst - Dust & Bones
Arizona - Splintering
Madeline will be playing a CD release show for The Slow Bang at the 40 Watt on February 3. I'm gonna try to go catch her set after seeing How I Became the Bomb at Caledonia. Thank God downtown Athens is pretty small.
Madeline - I Left the Light On
The Black Lips and Dark Meat have scheduled shows together at the Bottletree in Birmingham (Feb. 22), Whirlyball in Atlanta (Feb. 23), and the 40 Watt in Athens (Feb. 24). This strikes me as the kind of genius that put peanut butter together with chocolate. You know those will be wild.
Black Lips - Not a Problem
Dark Meat - Dead Man
Of course, Jeff Tweedy is in town at The Tabernacle on Monday, January 29. That's C&T's first birthday, so there will be reason to celebrate beyond it being my first Tweedy solo show.
Jeff Tweedy - Is That the Thanks I Get? (live)
Now, go see some live music.
