The Chosen Ones – November 11-14, 2010

Friday, November 12 – Generations Art, Music, and Motorcycle Show @ The Archive Gallery

The musical guests set to play at Archive Gallery’s grand re-opening this Friday are just as awesome as the concept of the event! Sonen, Vegan Coke, and House Cat are three very different bands. Sonen is the electro-rock champion of Atlanta (Creative Loafing’s readers and critics pick Best of 2010 Electronic Act), while Vegan Coke throw down their own brand of mostly improvised prog guitar and drums mania. House Cat is new on my radar of lo-fi bands with an interesting sound on the edge of pop and avant-garde.

If the music weren’t enough, the exhibit will feature a multimedia art show with motorcylces, performance art, sculptures, photography, paintings, jewelery, and more in an effort to depict the essence of different eras and how technology has influenced culture throughout time, as well as what we might find in the future. Full list of artists to collaborate on this exhibition can be found here.

This party gets even better with free admission, complimentary wine and food, and $2 PBR! Details.

Saturday, November 13 – 2nd Annual Earball @ Eyedrum
For the second year in a row, Eyedrum is putting together an all day festival featuring local musicians willing to explore the dimensions of their craft outside of the standard performance. This year’s event is especially sentimental, since it will be the last time Eyedrum will hold the event in their current location. By the end of the year, Eyedrum will be moving to a new, as of yet, undisclosed space.

The performers at Earball 2010 include Wowser Bowser, The Gazelles, Fader Vixen, Tendaberry, Back Pockets, and King Congregation, and there’s no telling what kind of experimentation will ensue with each performance! There’s even talk of naked performance art to take place, so prepare your eyeballs for Earball. Details

The Chosen Ones – October 29-31, 2010

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.

Friday, October 29 – Halloween Laserbeam Kitty @ The Highland Inn Ballroom

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.

The Letters Organize and A:The Color will be opening up, ensuring a rocking, non-pretentious night of music!


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!
