By: Shelby Lum

Weekend time means it’s music time, and TALive has posted some of the best events going on around you. Make the best of your free days! Here are TALive’s Weekend Picks:

Friday, March 29th-Harmonic Blue with 93 Buick, Supermoon, and Bunny with Clothes at Rock & Roll Hotel

Harmonic Blue boasts being from the DC and Baltimore area, and have been touring the Northeast since they released their EP last fall. The band started out as college friends and are taking their music to the next level as they begin a more expanded tour over the summer.

Friday, March 29th-The Apache Relay at Vinyl

The Apache Relay has taken traditional roots music and struck it with an indie streak. The band seamlessly combines acoustic sounds and styles with heavier rock songs.

Friday, March 29th-Cloudeater  with RBTS Win at The EARL

A relatively new face within the Atlanta music scene, Cloudeater has been creating a diverse, eclectic, organic style of music. The quintet hits listeners with a mix of sounds, inspired by live rock music. They list The Flaming Lips and Nine Inch Nails among their influences, and have worked at creating a distinct style of live rock with electronic music.

Friday, March 29th-The Soul Rebels at The Loft

Stepping straight out of the jazz scene in New Orleans, The Soul Rebels are no joke. Several of the members played in the famous Dejean’s Young Olympia Brass Band, and they took the traditional jazz music they loved, and meshed it with the contemporary and modern music they wanted to play.

Friday, March 29th-Pig Destroyer with Darkest Hours at Black Cat

Looking for a more hardcore night? A little more volume? Head to Black Cat where grindcore band, Pig Destroyer will be joined by Darkest Hour.

Saturday, March 30th-Black Clouds with Rosetta at Rock & Roll Hotel

The DC natives will get a chance to play at their own local venue this weekend. The ambient, progressive, and post-rock band will be joined by Rosetta at Rock & Roll Hotel.

Saturday, March 30th-Michelle Malone at Eddie’s Attic

In short, she is the heart of blues and soul. Malone, an Atlanta native, has laid it all out for her listeners and her tracks are full of experiences and emotions that will take audiences from highs to lows throughout the night as they follow the narrative of her music.

Saturday, March 30th-Cinema Cinema at Black Cat

The experimental pair will have you captivated for sure. Heavy guitars and overpowering drums and beats will be going on throughout the night as the duo pounds on song after song. Feeling tired? This one may not be for you, because with their high energy, they don’t give you a break until the show is done!

Saturday, March 30th-The 1975 at DC9

The 1975. Where to begin with these guys. The alternative rockers hail from England and their first full length studio album was released this year. Pulling influences from The Talking Heads to My Bloody Valentine, the rockers created music from rock to electronic rock to mixing in R&B styles. Don’t miss them in DC!

Sunday, March 31st-Alarms & Controls at Black Cat

Out of Maryland, the band has been taking influences from rock and progressive rock, so go out and support your local band and see them on their up swing.

Sunday, March 31st-Lil Dude Big Heart-A Benefit for the Aiden Rivera-Schaeff Foundation at Rock & Roll Hotel

To end your weekend by helping some others out, head to Rock & Roll Hotel, where the benefit will be hosted to stop bulling in schools. This is an event that is well worth your time for such a wonderful cause.
