Listen :: Places – Graves

graves-placesIt’s Thursday. Friday Eve. It’s getting ridiculously close to Christmas, too, and Atlanta’s Places has a very special treat for us all. It’s a dreamy new gem recorded at The Cottage called “Graves” and I guarantee you’ll listen to it a dozen times in a row.

Places will be at the EARL tonight with On Holiday, RRest and Gold-Bears. It’s $5, doors at 8:30 pm.

Be friends…

ATL THIS WEEKEND :: Dum Dum Girls at The EARL

I definitely feel super lucky to live in Atlanta right now. At any given moment there are at least two shows every night or so to choose from and this weekend is no different.
Dum Dum Girls will be gracing us with their presence at the EARL this Saturday, Oct. 27. Tickets are still available and I’d act fast if you want to check ‘em out, you can get advance tix until 4pm day of show. Also playing, Devin and Old King Cole Younger (Cole from the Black Lips).
Dum Dum Girls recently released their End of Daze EP on Sub Pop. It’s absolutely gorgeous. I’d definitely recommend picking it up from your favorite ATL record store.

Watch and listen to “Lord Knows,” the first single off the End of Daze.
