There are so many great events lined up for this Halloween weekend, so it only makes sense to focus on the best of what these three days will offer in terms of local music in Atlanta.
Laserbeam Kitty has been throwing their indie-dance-electro-rock-art parties for almost a year now. Each monthly event features electronic rock acts from Atlanta and beyond along with live art, photo booth, costumes, light shows, and cheap Asahi beer! The Halloween show features all of this within a Halloween theme, including a Voodoo Burlesque performance by Minette Magnifique. Panther God and Le Sexoflex, will join LBK hosts Sonen, providing the dance-rock for the night, followed by a DJ dance party courtesy of Brian Parris and Keith Evans. Definitely check out the photos on Laserbeam Kitty’s site for a taste of what you’ll encounter!
Friday, October 29 – Dropsonic VI Album Release Show @ The Star Bar
Dropsonic is, without a doubt, one of the best rock bands to come out of Atlanta. They have completed their sixth album and the release show will be at The Star Bar this Friday. They are offering the album on vinyl, disc, on ITunes and their record label’s site.
Saturday, October 30 – Haunted Ballroom w/Jungol, Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun, This Piano Plays Itself @ The Highland Inn Ballroom
This is the place to be Saturday night! A masked ball requires you wear your costume and this show provides some intrigue based on a series of promotional videos that Jungol has released in anticipation of the event. The music is focused on the exquisite experimental rock of Jungol, the electro-dance tunes from Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun, and the atmospheric noise rock of This Piano Plays Itself. Each of these bands have been making waves in and outside of Atlanta, so catch them in this intimate setting while you can!
