I hope some of you made it out this weekend, there was some pretty good shows. And Jackyl was at Forsyth Park on Saturday morning, definitely a Spinal Tap moment. There were a few good shows at Hang Fire (Fare The Gap and Buffalo Rodeo) and a very good bluegrass show at Congress Street Social Club from Seven Handle Circus. And the S.O.A.P! show at Molly MacPherson’s turned into a big party, what fun!
There are several interesting looking shows coming up this week. It looks like a week to put on your dancing shoes, lots of funk. Here are my plans/recommendations. And don’t forget to check later, I will try to update as I get new information.
Zachary Smith & Colleen Heine – Foxy Loxy – Half of the Accomplices at this great venue. It will be cold, so I bet it’s gonna be inside, which I like even better.
Epic Cycle – Warehouse
Jon Lee’s Apparitions – Warehouse – Guitar rock from Jonathan Murphy and company. They always put on a good show.
Danielle Hicks and The 8 Ohm Resistance – Zunzi’s II
Pillow Talk – Congress Street Social Club (10p) – R&B, boogie and house music. May be worth checking them out.
Bottles & Cans – Rail Pub Courtyard (6-9p) – Electric blues. One of the best bands around town, be sure to catch them whenever you can.
Megan Jean & The KFB – The 5 Spot (8:30p) – Husband and wife duo. Gypsy-rock with a female washboard player. Should be worth the ride to Habersham Village.
Epic Cycle Acoustic – Flip Flop Tiki Bar (9:30-1a) – Rare acoustic show with one of my favorite bands.
El Dub – Molly MacPherson’s (10p) – One-man funky reggae loops. Sounds interesting, I will probably stop by for a while.
Stereo Reform – Congress Street Social Club (10p) – Dance-rock. I’ve seen them before, they’re pretty good.
Quintron & Miss Pussycat, Jane Pollock – The Jinx (10p) – Swamp tech. Husband and wife duo, he is a solo instrumentalist, playing a Hammond Organ and several other instruments simultaneously. The website says that he has invented several instruments. Sounds like a good way to end the evening.
Telfair Babies – Telfair Square (Telfair Art Festival) (10-11:30a)
City Hotel – River Street Food & Wine Festival (12-3p)
Epic Cycle – Molly MacPherson’s (10p)
Funk You – Congress Street Social Club (10p) – Funk, reggae, jazz, and hip hop. And a great name.
Dams, Heyrocco, Hudson K – Hang Fire – I’ll probably drop by here sometime during the night, YouTube samples sounded pretty good.
Jason Bible – Zunzi’s II
Brett Trammell & Ben Keiser – Warehouse (7p)
Craig Tanner & Mr. Williams – Abe’s On Lincoln – Open Mic (9p)
