Saturday, April 20th-Kyle Seitz at Eddie’s Attic

A little bit blues, and a little bit gospel, Atlanta native, Kyle Seitz has been making music since he was 5 years old. Being from Atlanta he took in all the flavors of the city and melded them into his own sound.

Saturday, April 20th-Magnetic Music Festival at Fifth Third Bank Stadium at Kennesaw State

Continuing the EDM trend for the weekend, Magnetic Music Festival is on Saturday. This is one of the biggest electronic festivals in the South, and the most innovative. There are some of the biggest names in the industry for a night of bass thumping, fist pumping, lazer light fun.

Saturday, April 20th-Micah Dalton with Angel Snow at Vinyl

He’s like an earthy version of Ben Harper, and any Ben Harper comparison is good with me. With a soul-filled voice, Micah Dalton will have the audience at Vinyl amazed at his talent. Don’t miss his performance with Angel Snow.

Sunday, April 21st-Matt Costa at Vinyl

Once an aspiring skateboarder, now turned musician, Matt Costa has worked extensively with both Jack Johnson and Modest Mouse. Don’t miss his performance at Vinyl for a chance to hear a unique blend of music.

Sunday, APril 21st-VietNam at The EARL

Recently (semi)reformed, VietNam has just recorded a new album, and then raised funds for a tour through KickStarter in just 4 days. That says something. Fans clearly wanted to have him touring again with his edgy lyrics and apt sense for musical style.
