W. Kamau Bell @ Vinyl – Atlanta, GA
Socio-political comedian W. Kamau Bell has emerged as the post-modern voice of comedy. Kamau is best known for his critically acclaimed, but criminally short-lived FX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. The New York Times called Kamau “the most promising new talent in political comedy in many years.” And Salon.com listed Kamau on their “Sexiest Men of 2012” list, calling the series “surreptitiously revolutionary in its effortless diversity and humanism.”
Tickets are $15. Doors open at 6pm.
Martina McBride @ The Classic Center – Athens, GA
Martinia McBride has been called the “Celine Dion of Country music” due to her big-voiced ballads and soprano range. The singer will be at The Classic Center for her Everlasting Tour.

Flashdance @ The Classic Center – Athens, GA
The pop culture phenomenon of Flashdance is now live on stage.

Tickets are $20 – $70. Show is at 8pm.
Steve Poltz @ Eddie’s Attic – Atlanta, GA
Steve Poltz is obsessed with the challenge of knowing and understanding the thoughts of each and every person in his audience. He is a lover of life; fascinated by all things large and small. As a road-tested troubadour armed with whimsy, curiosity and a healthy respect for the absurdities of existence, he is unafraid of saying yes, unafraid of letting his relentless, giddy energy fill a room and he is unafraid of letting his streams-of-consciousness take him where he needs to go.
Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Doors open at 5pm.
