Wielding uilleann pipes, fiddles, banjos, bones, singing, dancing and more, “The Buddies” have been called “A local Irish Institution” by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Many fine guest musicians and dancers will also be featured including Leah Calvert, The Burke-Connelly Academy of Irish Dance, Anna Johnson and Stella Nielson.
Little Green Cars- March 17 @ Vinyl
Dublin folk rock quintet Little Green Cars blends acoustic and electronic, classical and punk, djembe drums and synth string into their debut record, Absolute Zero. This is a debut that is a sum total of its creators’ ascent to this moment. It is a desperate, under-pillow diary; a painstakingly lettered love note dropped in a locker; a collective, yet very personal, dissertation. Absolute Zero’s 48 minutes, crafted in unabashed earnestness with the aid of seasoned epic-producer Markus Dravs (Mumford and Sons’ Sigh No More and Babel, Arcade Fire’sNeon Bible and The Suburbs, Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto), act as a soul-bearing report, as guileless as the young quintet themselves, on the act of simply growing up: a process that requires, at once, so little and so much effort it could explode you from the inside at any moment.
Don’t miss out on these awesome St. Paddy’s Weekend Festivities or you’ll be GREEN with envy!
