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.

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
