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
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - Oregon Girl
Harry and the Potters - Voldemort Can't Stop the Rock

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.

Jan. 9 The Scourge of the Sea & Petticoat, Petticoat @ Ella Guru
The Scourge of the Sea - Smitten Kitten
The Scourge of the Sea - Waterwings
Petticoat, Petticoat - We're Gonna Be Poor
Petticoat, Petticoat - Glittering Heels

Should be some fun stuff to choose from here. Have a great rest of the week!

Thanks for the heads up on these, but the 6th is a Saturday. I don't know if anything interesting going on Friday.

Good grief. Apparently this is why people with some sense consult calendars. Thanks Amy!

It's a weird week, so you have a good excuse. I just claim brain damage.

Manchester Orchestra is coming to me thanks to a magical genie. ;)

And I think I have already declared my love for Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.

But what do we have here? The Scourge and the Sea I like indeed, thanks for the introduction.
