Friday, February 11 – Darwin Deez, Friends, Nomen Novum, $12 9pm 18+ @ The Drunken Unicorn

Darwin Deez is from New York. Friends is from Florida. Nomen Novum is the local support. In this case, each band makes this a show not to miss. It’s a night of minimal pop, new wave, experimental brilliance.

The Chosen Ones – November 15-18, 2010

Wednesday, November 17 – Future Islands, Lonnie Walker, Nomen Novum @ Eyedrum 10pm, $7

Atlanta’s Nomen Novum is one of my favorite local bands. The duo of David Norbery and Mark Godfrey blend an assortment of atmospheric, electronic recordings with hazy guitars and experimental instrumentation. Their sound reminds me of a Radiohead/Vampire Weekend union, though Nomen Novum can’t outright be compared to either. There’s a sincerity and playfulness in their music that resonates through each song.

Nomen Novum will be opening up for Baltimore new-wavers, Future Islands and Lonnie Walker (Raleigh), who manages to invent his own musical style combining punk, dance, and folk rock.

Nophi Recordings are celebrating their latest compilation album, with a party at Eastside Lounge featuring performances by Citizen Green, R_Garcia, and Fader Vixen, all featured on the Nophi Compilation 4 album. This compilation of electronic and experimental rock artists from Atlanta has received some great feedback from the local press. It features 20 songs from various independent Atlanta artists, including Sonen, The Extraordinary Contraptions, Jungol, Dirty Lungs, Meut, and Capibara.

DJ sets by Taradactyl and Threv will close out the night. Get there early for a full album listening party for Compilation 4.

Thursday, November 18 – Back Pockets, Lera Lynn, Night Driving in Small Cars (UPSTAIRS), A.Grimes, Quiet Hooves, Husseins (Basement) @ The Star Bar, FREE

I usually write my own show preview, but because I loved it so much, here’s the press release:

Atlanta and Athens are so close, yet they rarely hug each other on the same stages.  Almost never on stages and basements in one night. But(t)  . . . It will at Star Bar for an insane night of rainbow exploding magic for FREEBIES!  No money at the door.  NO MONEY AT THE DOOR.  BACKPOCKETS are a hodgepodge of Atlanta Art/Theater/Music/Bored Kids making and creating little worlds of happiness.  QUIET HOOVES cram 10 Athens music regulars into a mix of off kilter dancey madness.  A GRIMES scares people.  LERA LYNN soothes you.  NIGHT DRIVING IN SMALL TOWNS makes toes tap right at the edge of yer sneakers. HUSSEINS are punk.  Punk punks.

No one really knows how to make a press release.
