Hello! Today there are lots of things going on, but none of them matter because as I was typing this I noticed that @DowntownAtlanta tweeted out that there will be a live house DJ set in Woodruff Park from 11:30-1pm from Nilztradamus who confirmed on his account that he will be doing it every Wednesday all month long. I can't say it's the strangest thing that has ever happened in Woodruff Park, but it certainly gave me a smile. Get out there and day-rave! (Also I added Star Bar's weekly honkytonk karaoke and Noni's weekly soul sundries dance party to the regular Wednesday events, so check that link for more details on those!)

Eyedrum Art & Music Gallery (88 Forsyth St SW) hosts Tim Feeney and Lowell Fuchs tonight at 8pm, " Tim Feeney seeks to explore and examine the timbral possibilities inherent in everyday found and built objects. He treats his percussion setup as a friction instrument, using bows, scrapers, and rosined drumheads to capture," and "Lowell Fuchs is an avant-garde composer who currently resides in Atlanta, Ga. An explorer of unique sonic synthesis, Fuchs's curiosity shepherds his compositions in various directions. From experimental music with unspecified ensemble, to art songs with percussion accompaniment, a fascination of timbre, extended techniques, and texture are the cornerstones to many of his compositions."
