Is it warm yet? Tomorrow is officially March, and that means we’re ready for the warm weather to roll out! We’re tired of our coats and bundling up! One thing we can’t complain about though is the fantastic events & concerts going on this weekend. Here are TA Live’s Weekend Picks:

Friday, March 1st-Beach Fossils at DC9

Beach Fossils are known for their energetic live shows, that are unlike any other concert experience. They may have started as a solo project, but now they have a full band to fill out the stage.

Friday, March 1st-Grayson Capps at Eddie’s Attic

Grayson Capps’ style of rock is so raw and so innate it feels almost too personal. The southern native has released his 5th studio album. His guttural music seems to pull from the depths of his being, and his performance is one you won’t want to miss. Plus, who would want to miss seeing all that hair in person? Didn’t think so.

Friday, March 1st-Journopalooza V at Black Cat

Journopalooza V is a benefit for Writopia Lab and Reach Incorporated. It will be a night for writers who rock too. Come out and support the cause!

Friday, March 1st-The London Souls at Eddie’s Attic

From the beginning, The London Souls have been comfortable together. From New York, the band has been playing since 2010, and even after their first performance, which was practiced only over cell phone calls, The London Souls have never felt at odds with playing together. Don’t miss what will be a memorable performance at Eddie’s Attic.

Friday, March 1st-Petting the Cat at Black Cat

Petting the Cat is a night of burlesque girls. Yes, burlesque girls. Need there really be more information?

Saturday, March 2nd-Efterklang with Nightlands at The EARL

Coming all the way from Denmark, Efterkland will perform for their US audience some of their signature indie rock tunes. Four albums after their start, Efterklang has received high praise on their most recent album, Piramida.

Friday, March 1st-Jungol with England in 1819 at 529

The rock electronic band is straight out of Atlanta itself, and its not its first time at 529 either. The band has been churning out original songs and amazing Atlanta crowds.  The band is compromised of two brothers and their childhood friend as well as one newer addition, but with history like that, you know they have the chemistry to give more than just a good live performance.  Don’t miss them at 529 this weekend.

Saturday, March 2nd- Big Bird Bash, Macon, GA

Up for a short road trip? Headlining this year’s festival will be The Drive By Truckers with Drivin N Cryin, Moon Taxi, and Modern Skirts. Back City Woods, Gringo Grande, and The Dirty Sound Professors will provide local support

Saturday, March 2nd-American Aquarium at Smiths Olde Bar

American Aquarium gently weaves southern influences into a style of alternative rock and roll. Hailing from Raleigh, the band is a fresh take on bringing American roots into rock music.

Saturday, March 2nd-Offbeat Holligans with 17 Storeys at Vinyl

Help support Offbeat Holligans and their CD release at Vinyl. The album, Be Civilized, meshes reggae, blues and funk. The band has been restlessly touring throughout bars and clubs in Atlanta, promoting their music, so go and support Atlanta’s own!

Saturday, March 2nd-CITIZENS! at DC9

Hailing all the way from the UK, CITIZENS! will be at DC9 this weekend for a show you won’t want to miss out on. They have launched their North American tour, and you won’t want to miss this night.

Saturday, March 2nd-Efterklang with Nightlands at The EARL

Coming all the way from Denmark, Efterkland will perform for their US audience some of their signature indie rock tunes. Four albums after their start, Efterklang has received high praise on their most recent album, Piramida.

Saturday, March 2nd-Franck Cordes with Dru Dunnaway and Charles Andrews at Black Cat

You will get your money’s worth out of your ticket. Three performers all in one night. These solo acts will make up an acoustic evening you won’t forget. Storytelling, guitar plucking, and folky acoustic goodness will be going on all night.

Saturday, March 2nd-K. Flay at Rock & Roll Hotel

She’s a hip-hop indie artist out of sunny California. She mixes electronic music with hip-hop and her own indie streak. She just released West Ghost this year, and has become one of the more known female rappers around. As if that wasn’t enough, K.Flay is a Stanford alumna!

Saturday, March 2nd-Moon/bounce Dancing Affair at Black Cat

Black Cat is hosting a night of 90s fun. If you are looking for a night of dancing and great hip-hop tunes, Black Cat is where you need to be!

Sunday, March 3rd-The Orwells at DC9

End your weekend on a high note with The Orwells at DC9. The flower punk band doesn’t hold anything back on stage, and fans are in for a treat with their live performances. The young band delivers powerful guitar riffs, and shred through songs for a concert full of musical talent.
