Nathan and I were commenting on the plethora of shows going down this weekend, so I figured it’d be nice to lay it all out night by night for you so you know where you need to be to hear the best tunes. I’ve got all your options broken up by days and if you play your cards right, it could be a weekend filled to the brim with great local and visiting acts. See for yourself after the jump and prep with some tunes… a few more hours and it’s the weekend!
Alright, summer’s about to be over for most of the ATH crew as we head back to school, so you can bet we want to enjoy the last weekend of true freedom with some great live music. Lucky for you I’ve got the full rundown of all the shows you’ll want to hit up this weekend and some tracks to get you psyched to go out and support your local scene.
Super Thief, Tunic, Xetas, Back Legs at Beerland // 9 pm
Mother Falcon, RF Shannon, Quintessential Clarinet Quintet at The North Door // 8pm
Daniel Johnston, Dana Falconberry at the Mohawk // 8pm
Ramesh, Roses, The Sour Notes, Moving Panoramas at Hotel Vegas // 9pm
BLXPLTN at Radio Coffee & Beer // 10pm
Our scene is pretty damn good, so it doesn’t really surprise me that locals Moving Panoramas have got a great single and album on the horizon to give to you. If you haven’t heard or seen this three piece around town somehow, you need to change that immediately and have a listen to “One,” below. When you hit play, you’ll be charmed by their effortless dream gaze with noticeable hints of Best Coast and Dum Dum Girls. One is also the name of the upcoming album from these ladies, which you can look forward to in October of this year on Modern Outsider. So take a listen to the hazily hooky track below and stay alert for upcoming tour dates around town from Moving Panoramas; you don’t want to miss out on this.
There’s not a lot in the way of traveling acts coming through town, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have a chance to get out and support tons of local artists, and even celebrate some venues. No need to wax poetic here, just check out some great gigs. Read more
By conversations I had during the day with patrons and vendors, it seems the Flea Market was a success. We were amazed with the support, despite the fact that we were up against some serious rain storms and potential flooding. It was a team effort and if the labels hadn’t bought into the idea, it would have been DOA. One recurring theme, let’s do it again.
But let’s take a quick look back, relive it if you were there or take a gander if you missed out.
