This week’s shows (10/18/2010-10/24/2010)

Monday (10/18/2010): Tonight’s best bet is only sort of music related:  author Nick Hornby, the music geek that revealed all your secrets in High Fidelity, will be at Highland Inn Ballroom.  The $15 cover includes a copy of his new one, Juliet, NakedCan Can will be performing as well.  If that doesn’t interest you, there’s also NYMPH (ex-Dark Meat) at 529.

Tuesday (10/19/2010): I’ve been looking forward to this one for awhile:  Thrones will be at 529, with locals Whores and Uberchriist, plus NWOBHM fetishists Christian Mistress.  Thrones is the solo project of Joe Preston, who’s played bass for The Melvins, Earth, Sunn O))), High on Fire, and Harvey Milk.  His solo work is exactly what you’d expect from a man with that resume – sludgy, heavy, droney, doom metal interspersed with the sort of irreverent humor found on The Melvins’ albums.

Wednesday (10/20/2010): Twee-punks Los Campesinos! will be at Variety Playhouse, their first time through Atlanta since the release of Romance is Boring earlier this year.

Thursday (10/21/2010): The Earl hosts the Kurt Vile/Soft Pack co-headlining tour (Vile plays last).  Purling Hiss opens.  Over at Star Bar, Weapons of Audio will be headlining the free Thursday show, with support from Grand Prize Winners From Last Year and Dreaden.

Friday (10/22/2010): The Harvest of Hope Foundation begins a two night mini-festival at 529.  Friday features Kid Stuff, ContraVerse, Hello Ocho, and Ghost Party.  Harvest of Hope raises money for migrant farmworkers, so your $7 is going to a good cause.  Friday also offers another chance to catch Whores, this time at Star Bar.

Saturday (10/23/2010): Night 2 of Harvest of Hope happens at 529, this time with Bruce Joyner and the Reconstruction, The Compartmentalizationalist (featuring Jeffrey Butzer), The Terror, and Mack Messiah (Kenny Crucial’s band).  Sorry No Ferrari plays an album release show at the Drunken Unicorn with From Exile and Hello Ocho, too.  Finally, A Fight to the Death headline The Earl with support from Jim White and Night Driving in Small Towns.

Sunday (10/24/2010): I’ve got nothing.  Help?
