Here you go folks, another batch of great shows this week in Atlanta.
Caleb Caudle @ Eddie’s Attic – 11/12
Thursday night Caleb Caudle will be playing tunes at the intimate Eddie’s Attic and you will want to be in attendance. The Southern troubadour has slowly become one of the regions favorite singer/songwriters with personal songs built around the people, places and events that are a part of his life. If you have never seen him life it is truly a memorable experience. Caudle bares his soul to the audience creating a bond between him and the listeners. Start your weekend off early with a relaxed evening of music at Eddie’s attic with Caleb Caudle. Get there early because it will be crowded.
Natural Child @ The EARL – 11/12
Nashville’s Natural Child will be spending Thursday evening at the EARL for a night of raw in your face rock and roll music. Fuzz filled guitar riffs, head pounding percussion and a voracious wail will fill the EARL bouncing off the walls and attacking listener’s ears. The band delivers a brand of music that harkens back to the underground garage rock of the 60’s and 70’s that is built around strong musical arrangements and well written lyrics. Live the band gives folks their money’s worth with a high octane show that no one wants to see end. Bring some ear plugs because this will be a loud one.
Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats @ The EARL – 11/13
Friday the 13th will be anything but bad luck for those that head to the EARL to bear witness to the soulful music of Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats. Touring the nation in support of the eponymous new record Rateliff and crew are winning over everyone with their traditional r&b sound. Rateliff’s incredible voice leads the way surrounded by smooth soul music that sounds even better when you hear it live. I suggest you make way to the EARL and see Rateliff live before he garners larger venues and a higher ticket demand because that time is coming soon.
Black Linen @ Drunken Unicorn – 11/11
Veteran rocker Randy Michael has always been an iatrical part of the Atlanta music scene. With multiple bands under his belt one things has always been true, any band he is involved in will deliver a classic brand of bad ass rock tunes mixed with equal parts soul. His latest band Black Linen has just released their debut record and has been playing around town treating folks to their original brand of music. This Friday they will be at the Drunken Unicorn taking part in a musical extravaganza that also features Together Pangea, White Reaper and Illegal Drugs. This should be a good one.
The Wood Brothers @ The Buckhead Theatre – 11/13
The Wood Brothers are one of the best live shows you could ever experience. Their blues filled jazz infused music is infectious as it infiltrates listener’s bodies. From the beginning the band just keeps getting better and when they play live you never know what is going to happen but you can bank on it being damn good. Spend Friday night at the Buckhead Theatre with Chris and Oliver as they jam tunes from their latest record as well as a few others. This will be a good one.
Galactic @ The Variety Playhouse – 11/14
Saturday the funky soul music of Galactic will be flowing freely throughout the Variety Playhouse. The New Orleans band blends a cornucopia of sounds built on a jazz foundation. When they take the stage the music flows freely from the speakers careening into multiple directions without ever getting out of hand. It is hard to sit still as they roll through a set list that weaves in and out of structured songs and spontaneous jams. As good as Galactic’s albums are it is live where the music takes form of something incredible. Do not miss this one folks.
Muuy Biien @ Drunken Unicorn – 11/14
If raw punk flavored lo-fi rock is your thing then the Drunken Unicorn is the place to be Saturday night. Atlanta’s Muuy Biien will be there grinding out a rowdy set of tunes possessing just enough melodic undertones to keep them from tumbling out of control. Live the band is a whirlwind of energy bounding around the stage attacking each song they perform. The best way to describe Muuy Biien is a controlled chaos. Grab some ear plugs and head to the Drunken Unicorn and enjoy.
