March Music Magnificence in Atlanta!

I’m excited about March Shows! Atlanta really has some awesome shows happening all the time, but I’m pretty excited about March this year. Here’s the rundown of the live music I’m most excited about:

Ice Cube is playing at Center Stage on March 5 with Killer Mike and DJ Cash. Is this thing not sold out yet? Ice Cube invokes nostalgia in my heart – Boyz n the Hood, “It Was a Good Day,” “Check Yo Self,” Friday…I love it! I just don’t think about Anaconda.

SXSW Kickoff Party w/ Abby Gogo, Back Pockets, Reptar, Spirits and the Melchizedek Children, Milagres, Transvestites, and Boom Chick @ Star Bar on Thursday, March 10 and it’s Free!

Pretty Ambitious Records and PurgeAtl have a kickass kickoff party for all of us in Atlanta before they take it out to Austin on 3/17 at Clive Bar for SXSW. The SXSW line-up is a little different than the one we’ll get at Star Bar, featuring Chicago-based Light Pollution as the headliner with Atlanta support from Mermaids, Turf War, Abby gogo, Sealions, Little Tybee, Back Pockets, Transvestite. Check out their music sampler for a taste of each of these yum-yums.

OK Productions brings Tennis and Say Hi to The Earl on Friday, March 11. I’ve been looking forward to this since I interviewed Eric Elbogen for Performer Magzine a few months ago. The feature came out last month. If you’re interested in an interesting musician, you can check it out here. I wonder if the band has stuck it through thus far on the Say Hi tour? Anywho, La Sera from L.A. and Blair from Brooklyn will also be performing on this evening. $10 for that much goodness is a total steal.

I know that Saturday, March 12 presents a problem for many live music goers in Atlanta. There’s Toro Y Moi with Cloud Nothings at Drunken Unicorn, Wild Flag with Shannon Wright at The Earl, The Booze and The Biters simultaneous record release party at Star Bar, or Nash Smith & Ganges, Nerdkween, and Night Driving in Small Towns at Wonderroot, but I hold onto tix to Continue reading “March Music Magnificence in Atlanta!” »

The Chosen Ones: January 14-19, 2011

Atlanta is serving up something you’ll be craving after being home-bound by this week’s ice fiasco. If you’re looking to dance, get out to The Drunken Unicorn on Friday night to party with Pink Pompeii. Otherwise, you might be happy at Wonderroot with the gypsy-folk nuances of Christ, Lord and the beautiful voice of Adron.

If you’re in the mood for some melodic rock in the vein of Death Cab For Cutie, hit up The Highland Inn Ballroom on Saturday for some New Terminus. Need a dose of dark atmosphere in your music, head to The Earl Sunday night to stare at A.Grimes.

Embrace the feminine fortitude of three exceptional artists, Ladycop (Brooklyn), Lille, and Qurious at The Drunken Unicorn on Monday night for your MLK holiday. The Chosen Ones:
