This week’s shows (11/1/2010-11/7/2010)

Janelle Monae

Monday (11/1/2010): I haven’t gotten around to listening to the new Interpol album, but I’ve heard it’s an improvement over Our Love to Admire, an album that extinguished whatever interest I still had in the band.  Recent setlists mostly ignore that album, though, so they might be worth checking out at The Tabernacle if you’ve got $32.50 to spare (make that $44.70 if you go through Live Nation).  They’ve also added Dave Pajo to the band, so that’s kind of cool.  Plus, White Rabbits open, and they’re a fantastic live band.

Tuesday (11/2/2010): JEFF the Brotherhood headline a free show at 529, with support from locals Predator and Turf War, as well as JEFF’s Nashville compatriot Cy Barkley.  It’s free, there’s nothing else going on tonight, and all 4 acts are awesome.  No reason to miss this.

Wednesday (11/3/2010): The Intelligence headline The Earl.  Balkans and Skin Jobs will be there, too.

Thursday (11/4/2010): Old school weirdos The Legendary Pink Dots will be at The Masquerade.  Athens’ Bambara will be at 529 with Tasty Beverage and Psychedubasaurus Rex.  And Hawks will get all naked and shit for a release show at The Earl with the non-chillwave Sunglasses and Aku You.

Friday (11/5/2010): I’m really liking locals Qurious right now, and I’ll have something about their latest album up before their Friday show at the Drunken Unicorn with Living Rooms, Goldilocks, and Negashi Armada.  There’s another good lineup at 529, with Knaves Grave, Barreracudas, and Runaway Suns playing a benefit for Purge ATL.  Or you could catch Shearwater at The Earl with Damien Jurado.

Saturday (11/6/2010): I’ll admit, I’m not over the moon about False Priest, but Of Montreal is always worth seeing live, and Janelle Monae only sweetens the deal.  I’ll be at Variety Playhouse for both of them.  Saturday’s got plenty of other options, too.  Fang Island returns to the Drunken Unicorn, with Reptar opening once again (my review of their June show here).  This time they’re also playing with Delicate Steve, which is an upgrade from Hollerado.  New York’s Bear Hands will be at The Masquerade with Tallahassee’s Holiday ShoresThe Felice Brothers will be at The Earl with Two Gallants frontman Adam Hayworth Stephens.  And finally, the most intriguing show of the night is happening at the arcade next to the Value Village down on Moreland – WYMYNS PRYSYN, The Clap, and Abby Go Go are playing a BYOB show for only $5.

Sunday (11/7/2010): Of Montreal and Janelle Monae will be at Variety again.  I don’t see anything else, really.
