Hey guys! Sorry this took so long today, there is so much coming up this week that it took me forever to get it all sorted out for the next six days, but by massive popular demand as well as today’s comprehensive list, check out my highlights for the rest of the week! I’ll come up with a catchy name for it later. There’s also my top music picks for the week, which should probably have been on the same page, but I wasn’t thinking and it’s definitely too late to do anything about it now…………
Today is the final day to get $75 4-day Dragon*Con 2015 tickets! Tomorrow they go up to $100 for the whole thing.
Sweetwater Brewing Company (195 Ottley Dr) has Beer and Comedy Night tonight at 7pm, $10 admission gets you six beers and 8-10 stand-up comedians, hosted by Joe Pettis.
The East Atlanta Village Farmer’s Market Dine Out
is today, with meals from multiple EAV restaurants giving their proceeds to the East Atlanta farmer’s market to help them continue their policy of doubling SNAP dollars at the market.
The Low Museum (550 John Wesley Dobbs) has Drunk Critique No. 5 today at 6pm, “an informal evening of drinks and constructive discussion about your art peers’ artwork!” BYOB, but as usual there will probably be rainbow jello shots provided.
The Big House on Ponce (368 Ponce de Leon Ave) has Kirkwood Baller’s Club tonight at 8pm, “for those who are unfamiliar, Kirkwood Ballers Club is an open mic night o’ sorts, tailored for free and wild musical experimentation.” Everyone form Black Lips, Deerhunter, and Lyonnais spent some serious time at KBC in the early days. And over the years the event has hosted performances by King Khan, Girl Talk, Jana Hunter, and more.
The Shakespeare Tavern (499 Peachtree St) has The MisCast Cabaret tonight at 7:30pm, featuring actors from The Atlanta Shakespeare Company performing scenes and singing songs that they were never cast for. Admission is $30 and comes with food from Smoke Ring BBQ, free wine, a silent auction, and the performance. 100% of the funds raised will go to increasing actress’s salaries for the upcoming All Female Hamlet performance.
The Atlanta History Center (130 West Paces Ferry Rd) has Coming to America: Stories from Atlanta’s Immigrant Communities tonight at 7pm, a free event featuring “stories of those who have emigrated from their home countries to the United States. Their stories span the past half century and around the world — from as far as Poland, Vietnam, and Ethiopia; to right across the border in Mexico.”
Small Black described their latest album, Limits of Desire, as “A million dollar record on a very low budget,” a ten-song album that may as well be one long soothing chillwave song it blends together so masterfully, with drenched reverb and plenty of synthesizer. You’ll want to make sure you get to The Earl early enough to grab the couch in the back because you’ll want to relax straight into the floor otherwise.
Performing with: Calm White Noise, Phracture
Sounds like: Wild Nothing, Washed Out
