Live Music

Semicircleat The 529, 9pm, donations.

These guys have three records on their bandcamp page and each one sounds totally different, from delicate acoustic lo-fi, to fuzzy garage rock, to high-shine indie pop, and they pull all of them off so well. Who knows what side of them we’ll get tonight at the 529, but no matter what it won’t disappoint.

With: Del Venicci, Grand Rapids
Genre: Indie pop, lo-fi, indie folk

RIYL: Shakey Graves, Ben Folds, Fuzz

Sharon Van Ettenat The Earl, 8pm, $20 cover

Van Etten has a powerful, haunting voice.  Her new album is the latest in a long string of great albums to come out on Jagjaguwar and has an 8.2 on Pitchfork. NPR writes “Her songs are heartfelt without being overly earnest; her poetry is plainspoken but not overt, and her elegant voice is wrapped in enough rasp and sorrow to keep from sounding too pure or confident.”

With: Tiny Ruins
Genre: Indie folk, singer/songwriter

RIYL: Angel Olsen, Jenny Lewis, The War on Drugs

Netherfriends at The Manor, 9pm, $3+ cover.
With: Reek Manikan, Ambiogant

Giveaway: Two tickets for Givers, Wednesday Night at The Vinyl!

Louisiana indie pop band Givers are playing at The Vinyl on Wednesday night with Kind Cousin.

"Effervescent indie-pop quintet GIVERS made quite a splash with their debut LP In Light in 2011 (enough to get signed to Glassnote Records alongside bands like Phoenix and Mumford & Sons) and quickly found themselves playing major festivals and touring the world as a young band out of Lafayette, LA. Fans of Talking Heads, Afro-pop era Paul Simon and modern acts like Dirty Projectors and Vampire Weekend should check this one out. Bound to be an upbeat affair."

"The boundary-pushing Brooklyn-based ‘funk style’ band makes a pit stop in The Fox Theatre’s Egyptian Ballroom on Wednesday night.

Paul McCartney at The Philips Arena, 8pm, ~$40+.

"Not much needs to be said here: McCartney was one of the two primary songwriters in The Beatles and Wings had a sterling run after The Beatles wrapped things up in 1970. Even at age 72, Macca still brings the energy of a twentysomething and delivers 2+ hours of songs you-know-by-heart. If you can pony up the dough on the secondary market or find a cheaper miracle on Craigslist, Paul will undoubtedly reciprocate with one of the best arena rock shows you’ve ever seen.”

Tuesday, October 14th

Hey guys! I tallied up the results of the poll last night and the results were…

Winner of Best Live Music Venue: Terminal West

image

This was barely even a competition, Terminal West wiped the floor with over 50% of the vote! I’ve seen some great shows here in the past including STRFKR, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and The Japandroids, and it’s always been an amazing experience with perfect sound and jaw-dropping visuals. With three bars (including one on a balcony outside overlooking the CSX train tracks) stocking an impressive selection of liquor and craft beer, an in-venue restaurant that I’ve heard nothing but great things about, and some of the friendliest staff at any of the venues around, I can’t think of a bad thing to say about the place! They’re so friendly they’ll even give you free earplugs from behind the bar if you ask!

Check out the other stuff you guys have voted The Best here!

Poll: Who cooks the best Indian food in Atlanta? I love Indian food so I can’t wait to read your answers! As usual I’ll tally them up and post the results next Tuesday.

"Merrill Garbus has performed as tUnE-yArDs since 2009, and that band name has always been synonymous with forward movement–whether because of her explosive performance style or the always-surprising way in which her songs unfold. First gaining notice with the debut BiRd-BrAiNs, which The New York Times called “a confident do-it-yourselfer’s opening salvo: a staticky, low-fi, abrasive attention-getter,” Garbus forged a reputation as a formidable live presence through relentless touring."
