This week’s shows (1/24/2011-1/30/2011)

Sorry No Ferrari

Monday (1/24/2011): Small Reactions released their first 7″ back in November.  I liked it. Unfortunately, they haven’t played live since the accompanying release show, which is a shame because their jangly post-punk goes over really well live.  Make sure to catch them at 529 tonight (it’s a free show, too).  Also on the bill are Cute Boots, The Compartmentalizationalists (Jeffrey Bützer and Claire Lodge), and Curio Museum.

Tuesday (1/25/2011): Tokyo Police Club and Two Door Cinema Club bring their co-headlining tour through Atlanta, and there’s two chances to catch them on Tuesday.  They play a free in-store at Criminal Records at 6:00PM, then again at the Masquerade later that night with the addition of openers Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.

Thursday (1/27/2011): Two solid bets for Thursday.  The quiet one:  Adron, Little Tybee, and Justin Evans’ Normaltime Ramblers at The Earl.  The loud one:  The Vaginas, Young Antiques, and Charges at 529.

Friday (1/28/2011): Yo La Tengo (along with Sonic Youth and the reformed Mission of Burma and Dinosaur Jr) exemplify the ideal route for aging indie rockers.  They have an undeniable place in the indie canon, but they continue to release and tour behind new music instead of just coasting through greatest hits sets.  They play Variety Playhouse on Friday with William Tyler.  There’s a strong local metal lineup at 529 featuring Sons of Tonatiuh, Wolves & Jackals, Demonaut, and Black Pussy.

Saturday (1/29/2011): Fans of heavy, technical math rock are going to be very happy this Saturday:  locals Sorry No Ferrari play a free in-store at Criminal Records at 4:00PM, and Athens’ Cinemechanica headline at 529 later that night (Manray and Lazer/Wulf open).  Local mainstays Soulphonics & Ruby Velle headline The Earl with support from Chattanooga’s The DistributionStoneRider, Damon Moon & the Whispering Drifters, and A: the Color play the Drunken Unicorn.  And finally, Imagination Head plays an album release show at Highland Inn Ballroom with Misfortune 500.

[EDIT] – Also on Saturday is the first ever show for Marietta’s Places, who I wrote about a few weeks ago (see that here).  The show will be at MINT Gallery, and Curio Museum and Vocabulary will also perform.
