Robyn Hitchcock

Where: Eddie’s Attic, Decatur, GA

Robyn describes his songs as ‘paintings you can listen to’. His most recent album LOVE FROM LONDON celebrates life in a culture imperiled by economic and environmental collapse.‘These are exciting times’ he adds ‘we are surfing on the momentum of chaos. If a consensus on global warming comes from the people, then the media, the politicians, and the corporations will have to adapt to it. Rock and Roll is an old man’s game now, so I’m staying in it.’

The Legwarmers

Where: The State Theatre, Falls Church, VA

Remember the Eighties? Sure, we all do…but the Legwarmers don’t just remember the Eighties – they relive them. It all started back in May 2001 when Gordon Gartrell and Cru Jones had just seen yet another cover band butcher the decade that they loved, so they decided to do something about it. They assembled a group and vowed to give the world’s most hedonistic decade the tribute it deserved. Joined by Chet Reno, Lavaar Huxtable, Cyndi Sindee, Capt. Morgan Pondo and Clarence McFly, they locked themselves in the basement with a shoebox-full of dusty 45’s and an endless supply of Tab. One year later, the Legwarmers emerged. They perform Friday and Saturday at The State Theatre.

Curtis Harding

Where: 529, Atlanta, GA

Curtis Harding says that soul music, and his music, speak for themselves. It’s self-evident on the Atlanta artist’s debut, Soul Power. The driving sound of his electrified Stratocaster, the foot-stomping backbeat and the lyrics swimming in reverb–with something this flourishing, it’s almost reductive to just dig around the roots.

Formed only a little over a year ago, this exciting Los Angeles trio of songwriters and producers have already collaborated with N*E*R*D, toured with Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa, had a Mixtape produced and presented by DIPLO and BENZI entitled “Paradise Falls”, and produced the track “PA Nights” on Mac Miller’s new album “Blue Slide Park.”

My Body Sings Electric w/ Consider Me Dead

Where: Vinyl, Atlanta, GA

My Body Sings Electric’s music resonates with a sense of playfulness and lust for life. When you meet them in person, it’s easy to see why. Call their music indie. Call it pop. Call it what you will. But when you connect with the music from this band of lovable misfits, you’ll feel as if you just met your five new best friends.

Pallbearer w/ Tombs

Where: The EARL, Atlanta, GA

Pallbearer is a metal band from Central Arkansas, formed in 2008 after spending time playing in various bands around the Little Rock underground metal scene. Paying homage to doom metal of old while still looking wholly forward, the band built upon the underground success of their initial demo offering in 2010 and their debut full length “Sorrow and Extinction” was released in February, 2012 to virtually universal critical acclaim. Now the band slowly marches onward to deliver its progressively-tinged beautiful gloom on a global scale.

Screaming Females, Pujol w/ Concord America

Where: 529, Atlanta, GA

Screaming Females’ nine years as a band, four full-length albums and 700 globe-spanning live shows has made them difficult to miss. Through it all, the New Brunswick, New Jersey trio have continued to exude a frenetic energy which is built upon the zeitgeist of America’s punk and indie underground yet has always remained forward-looking. Fittingly, for Screaming Females’ 5th album ‘Ugly’, the band enlisted legendary recording engineer Steve Albini, famed for his unique ability to capture the ferociousness of a live performance while delivering gorgeous sonic clarity. The album’s 14 tracks reaffirm the touchstones of the band; they can still shred and front-woman Marissa Paternoster can still unleash a powerful howl. But it doesn’t end there. The album ushers in new explorations for the band, a truly remarkable feat considering their already prolific output. ‘Ugly’ has the perfect combination of raw energy and honed musicianship that produces the type of rock & roll which is still a force to be reckoned with.

Antje Duvekot

Eddie’s Attic, Decatur, GA

“‘New Siberia’ is a special album to me because the songs are wiser,” says songwriter Antje Duvekot. “They have an age to them that should resonate with anyone who’s struggled through a difficult period and come out better.There’s something really sweet in being able to look back on a journey like that, from a darker, younger self to a better, older place

Avi Buffalo

Where: Eddie’s Attic, Decatur, GA

Avi Buffalo’s first album hit the ground running, and for good reason: While their Millikan High School classmates were preoccupied with quaint and youthful pursuits, the musicians behind Avi Buffalo were busy making an off-kilter pop gem that eventually bowled over NME, The AV Club, Pitchfork, the BBC, and numerous other outlets on both sides of the Atlantic whose tastes are respected by the general public. Like a lot of kids their age, the Buffaloes celebrated the end of high school in Europe, but instead of visiting the Louvre and Buckingham Palace, their overseas journeys took them to the festival stages of Reading, Leeds, Glastonbury, the Pavement-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties in Minehead, and beyond.
