Recommended shows and events this week:
Monday, June 30:
Ill Poacher /// Narrator /// Shampoo /// The Widest Smiling Faces @ The Mammal Gallery
"Ill Poacher I don't think they mean "ill" like the hip hop term "ill".... I don't think either one of these boys has ever even listened to hip hop. Maybe that thing Jay Z did with Linkin Park. Narrator is going on tour. Who told them they could leave Georgia? Who told them they could COME to Georgia in the first place? Was it Max? Kill-bot knows, but won't tell us until the Taco Conundrum has been resolved. Shampoo is not just for dogs anymore. Chandler said he would pay me 15 dollars to write something about his beard, but I'm nobody's whore. the Widest Smiling Faces is coming all the way down from New York to find himself on the road and reach transcendence. Or something like that."

Catch 23 • Atlanta's Friendliest Comedy Death Match @ The EARL

They each have 23 minutes to use over the course of the night - no more; no less - with nothing but a 1 minute warning to guide them. Each scene is judged on a ten point scale with five points given by the audience and five by a hell judge. $5"

Wednesday, July 2:
HAWKS, TILTS, FISTER and CRAWL @ 529
"Fister is a three piece doom metal band from St. Louis, Missouri. The band incorporates heavy influences from the black and death metal genres into a depressing sludge spewing heaviness that many have attempted, but few have mastered. Hawks is a band of four. We play shows that become parties. We tackle the toughest issues and tour so you don't have to. Enjoy our labors, make them the topic of your day. The dudes of Tilts have known each other a very long time. Long enough to be like brothers n' such. Features ex-members of Shame Club, Riddle of Steel, current members of Torche, and Blind Eyes among others. Crawl began Spring 2012 with a core trio of which have been past members of FULCI, Social Infestation, Molehill, Hog Mountin & Sons of God! Their initial rumblings comprised of immense detuned riffing and sociopathic chants alongside bulldozing sub frequencies and Neanderthal tar-pit beats, bringing together the drunken groove of classic southern rock and prime Sabbathian riffage with the bowel churning devastation of contemporary Doom Metal and sludge rock."
The Coltranes, Dasher, Uniform @ Drunken Unicorn
"The Coltranes - Top notch mutant music (http://thecoltranes.bandcamp.com/) Dasher - Reindeer brunch goth (http://dasher2.bandcamp.com/) Uniform - Local chobani ronnies"
