Copenhagen’s Iceage released their sophomore effort, You’re Nothing, via Matador back in February. Now they’re touring across the states and will be in Atlanta at the EARL on Sunday, June 9th. I highly recommend checking this band out. The cover is $12 and doors are at 8 pm.
Let’s get this week started off right with some newness from Atlanta’s own Book Club. They have brand-spanking new EP out tomorrow and I can tell you I’ve listened to Shapes On The Water more than a couple of times, it’s stunning. Check out one of my favorites, “Understand Please Understand” below.
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.
Definitely check out Brooklyn-based funky, groove rock Ava Luna tonight at The EARL. There’s still time to get tickets via Ticket Alternative. And get there in time to see Carnivores and wish them well on their upcoming tour.
So, I couldn’t find a bigger image of the poster. Anyways, tonight The Great Big & AMR present Mice in Cars, Places and Gun Party at The EARL. Tickets are $5, party starts at 9p. Click the image for links and more info.
The Mad Flight is the Atlanta-based project from Paul Cantrell and David Fountain. They brought on Heath Ladnier on drums and Nathan Sadler on keys and bass to form the four-piece. The Mad Flight’s debut album comes out next week along with a release show at the EARL on Wednesday, May 2. The show is only $5 and admission comes with a copy of Break, Heart; Break! They will be playing their album in its entirety. New Animal and Spirits of the Melchizedek Children open.
Break, Heart; Break! has a ’90s rock vibe to it, tinged with National-esque vocals and roaring guitar riffs. I highly recommend checking this album out, it’s available for your listening pleasure below.
Atlanta-based rock band, The District Attorneys, are releasing a new album and to celebrate they’ll be playing at The EARL on Saturday, April 14. It’s 5 bucks, doors at 9 pm. Check out the first single from the upcoming album, Slowburner, below.
