This Weekend in Music : May 10-13

Hey y’all! Sorry about the delay, Shaky Knees really screwed up my schedule but I’m back on track now, I won’t let you down next week! Did you have fun at the festival? I had an incredible time, even lost my glasses in the pit during Japandroids so sorry if there are any typos.

  • Atlanta Symphony Orchestra on the Beltline : Historic Fourth Ward Park : 7:30 : ~free~

    • Another earlyish show! Come celebrate the release of New Junk City’s new 7″ and dance the night away to some rippin’ pop punk. The show ends at 11, but there’s a dance party in the other room after if you’re still in the mood to groove.
  • King Tuff : The Earl : 9pm doors : $18
    • I love listening to him while I walk down the street, pure struttin’ music. If you like good ol’ rock n rool, glam, or ~kool dudes with attitude~ this is the one for you.
  • 90s – 00s Dance Party : The Basement : 10pm : $5-$10
    • These are always so much fun and a good night to make a nice lil mistake

Sorry y’all, that’s all I got for this week. I’ll be back in full force for next, though, don’t fret! See ya soon

This weeks album is Get This In Ya by The Chats, who are essentially the Australian Dino’s Boys. With seven songs at fourteen minutes, it’s pretty much the perfect album length.
