Live Music

Highlight: North Mississippi Allstars at Buckhead Theatre

The World Boogie Is Coming to Buckhead:

North Mississippi Allstars shows should come with a money-back guarantee - the band would never lose a dime. Fans can always rest assured knowing they’re in for a great night out with the Brothers Dickinson playing, and, with this one going down on a Friday night (likely with a festive crowd in attendance) in Buckhead, it should be an extra lively night of upbeat hill country blues.


Highlight: The Whigs with Gringo Star at Terminal West

The Whigs return home for a Friday holiday show on the Westside at Terminal West with fellow ATL band Gringo Star. Currently touring in support of their fifth LP Modern Creation (second release on New West Records), this hometown show for the roots-based rockers should be as rowdy as any other night on the tour.

Air Wolves at The WonderRoot, 9pm, $5 cover. All ages.
With: Glen Iris, Bold Ashes, Slow Chrome

Joshua Fletcher at The Drunken Unicorn, 9pm, $10 cover. 18+
