This week’s shows (2/21/2011-2/27/2011)

Jungol

Monday (2/21/2011): Local blues-rock duo Dead Rabbits headline this week’s free 529 show.  Gun Party, Young Circles (from Miami), and She Came From Above open.

Wednesday (2/23/2011): Baby Baby, StoneRider, and Killing Floor play Eastside Lounge.

Thursday (2/24/2011): Local garage-punks Balkans have never been a personal favorite, but it’s been nice seeing their “Edita V” 7″ make some waves outside of Atlanta via positive blog notices and a strong showing on the Hype Machine.  It’s always cool seeing locals get national attention.  They celebrate the physical release of that 7″ with a free show at Star Bar, with excellent support from Hawks, The N.E.C., and Soft Opening.  Elsewhere, A Fight to the Death do their cinematic western-gypsy-rock thing at The Earl with Damion Suomi and the Minor Prophets and The Compartmentalizationalists.  Also, the Five Spot has a solid lineup of local metal, hosting Lazer/Wulf, From Exile, Aes Sedai, Shaitan, and Bury Me Breathing.

Friday (2/25/2011): Toronto’s Diamond Rings brings his glammy synth-pop to 529, with the like-minded PS I Love You in tow.  Local dream-poppers Mood Rings open.  Soulphonics & Ruby Velle are an incredibly tight and entertaining live act, and it has made them one of the biggest draws in town.  They headline the Highland Inn Ballroom on Friday with George Hughley.  Get there early, this one will probably hit capacity.  Finally, the Old 97s play the Buckhead Theatre.  That’s not a show that would typically be on my radar, but Those Darlins are opening, making it immediately worth consideration.  [EDIT] I failed to mention the Tweezer, Go-Devils, and Aku You show at The Earl.  Check the comments for more info.

Saturday (2/26/2011): Jungol are having a 7″ release party at The Earl.  Their forward-thinking prog-pop has earned them a huge local following, so it’s probably best to get there early for this one, too.  Sun Domingo and The Influence open.  New Terminus headline the Highland Inn Ballroom, right on the heels of their recently released EP (follow that link to check it out).  Liars & Lovers and Gray Young open.  Finally, Speakeasy Promotions is putting on another Free Acid show at 529.  It’s a triple bill of psychedelia with no cover.  HeRobust, Bambara, and Glue will be performing.

Sunday (2/27/2011): Secret Cities (lo-fi psych-pop from North Dakota) headline The Masquerade.  Atlanta singer-songwriter Richard Parsons and Athens’ Tin Cup Prophette open.
