Shows in ATL this week
Alright, I lied. One more post before I leave. But this one is important if you're in Atlanta. If you're not, these bands are worth checking out anyway.
On Saturday, January 6, there are two shows in Atlanta that showcase local indie rock talents. Luigi headlines at Lenny's with some great supporting acts, and Manchester Orchestra will be at The 585. There's also a great show in the Hell section of Masquerade with two fun national acts -- Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin and Harry and the Potters. Here's the rundown and some sample tracks:
Jan. 6 Luigi, The Preakness, Moresight, & The Eyes @ Lenny's (um.. wow)
Luigi - Mariposa
The Preakness - What They're Saying (demo)
Moresight - Hoop Earrings
Jan. 6 Manchester Orchestra, Stellamaris, Estates, and O'Brother @ The 585
Manchester Orchestra - Wolves at Night
Jan. 6 Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin & Harry and the Potters @ Masquerade

Also, on Tuesday, January 9....
The Scourge of the Sea and Petticoat, Petticoat will be playing at Ella Guru at 6pm. For those who don't know Ella Guru is a nice music store in the Toco Hills shopping area off North Druid Hills Road (near Famous Pub). These Lexington indie popsters won't be playing a club show in town, but playing Ella Guru before going off to Athens for their Wednesday show at Tasty World. Do check 'em out, and encourage people to come if you like them. This is a last-minute booking, so they'll need help getting the word out.
