Saturday, November 20 – A Can for A Can: Howlies and The Barreracudas @ The Star Bar

Tis the season for thanking and giving, so bring your canned food to The Star Bar on Saturday and in return for your giving, you’ll get a can of PBR. I’m not going to guarantee that it’ll be cold, but we can only hope!

Then you can be thankful for the garage punk sounds of Howlies and The Barreracudas. Howlies will be celebrating the release of their latest EP, Stunned. So stock up on your vinyl while you’re there. Also on deck, DJ Dookie Platters (Noot d’ Noot) spinning dubstep and funk til close.

The canned goods will benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank courtesy of PBR and Whynatte will be serving up drink specials at the bar.Event presented by Esperanza Atlanta and 4th Ward Heroes. $8, 21+

Saturday, November 20 – Waking the Bates, Vegan Coke, The Sneaky Hand, Odist, and Last @ Relapse Theatre

Relapse Theatre has recently been renovated and this party is to celebrate the new space. Get your fill of progressive rock as Vegan Coke, Odist, The Sneaky Hand and LAST take you through alternate dimensions. These bands make frequent rounds at Atlanta venues, but on this night you’re priveledged to having them share one stage.Party time. Excellent.
