Villain Family / the Vivants / Book of Colors @ The EARL

"Villain Family (ATL) the Villain Family is not your run of the mill band. Heavy on banjo, ukulele and country twang the Atlanta, GA group offers up bluegrass heavy on soul and with an indie sensibility. Chief songwriters Lawson Wright and Rachel Simpson use clever lyrics and catchy melodies on their debut album, Southern Lovers, putting together a batch of tunes that deal with life, relationships and manatees. The Vivants (San Francisco) Inspired by the energy of old-time dance tunes, honky-tonk country, and western swing, The Vivants play their own brand of American roots music, shining up dusty melodies with modern arrangements. The Vivants, feature stellar players, Emily Bonn on lead vocals and guitar, Jody Richardson on fiddle, tap dancing and vocals, James Touzel on upright bass and vocals, and Isaac Bonnell on piano accordion and vocals. Book of Colors (ATL) 1,000 genres come together to make one baby. With so many genes blending together it's hard to tell which parent the child resembles most, but she definitely has her mother's sass. That's for DAMN sure."

Moodie Black, Wake, GREAT Scott, Kodac aka M80, DOUG @ 529

"Lineup: Moodie Black (Fake Four / Minneapolis), WAKE, G.R.E.A.T. SCOTT, Kodac aka M80 (Michigan), DOUG. Shaped and formed in the deserts of Arizona, Moodie Black pulled themselves from the dust, undaunted by criticism for their abrasive sound and controversial stage shows since 2004. Regarded as a legitimate pioneer of mood in a very small class of noise rap (Death Grips, BLACKIE, Dalek), the band's unorthodox approach to production, mixing, and live performance has begun to be recognized by the human masses. Outfitted with disembodied baby heads tethered to gold chains, Moodie Black is visceral, melodic, and of course devastatingly moody. The duo- fronted by menacing figure "K." (Chris Martinez) and backed by guitarist Sean Lindahl- have audiences anticipating Moodie Black's upcoming album, N A U S E A , the follow up to the critically acclaimed Sana Sana, and the first major release for the band."

100 Watt Horse/Cowboy Crisis National Tour Kick-off/Silly Hat Contest!!!!!!!!! @ The Mammal Gallery

"SMALL REACTIONS: There's an old old old Appalachian tune, older than the hills themselves, that goes like this: "Clintonnnnnn, oh little Clinton...get your hand out of that honey pot....Oh little Clinton stop forwarding those spam emails to me....Oh little baby girl Clinton you're probably going to get the flu soon because flu shots haven't been invented yet." Will Small Reactions play that song at this show? You bet your britches they will, probably a LOT like 12 or 13 times. 100 WATT HORSE - Just a bunch of god damn idiots. (and Anna Jeter) DEL VENICCI - Ross Politi doesn't seem to give a shit about my scary good Italian accent. Hey! It's-a Del Venicci! Babbiddy-Boobiddy! COWBOY CRISIS (from Asheville) - We found a little baby bird on the fourth of July and I named him Benjamin Franklin although no one called him that but me and was his Dad and Maddy was his mom and I was like the babysitter or Dad's friend from college or something and now where is that bird? None of us know. My guess is that he's in bird heaven, hopping around still not knowing how to fly. MOSES NESH - God help me I just can NOT resist putting Isaac on like every show I play. I can't get enough of his whole "I'm so quiet but I'm so talented" vibe, and yeah he really is just that good. I wanna be his guitar tech, and then his friend, then we'll mess around and casually hook up for a while, then that relationship will just sort of naturally end on good terms, and then we'll decide that we want to open up a Sandwich Shop and called it "George and Isaac's Pepperoni Factory."

FREE THURSDAY: Queen Killjoy/ Team Luis Present:The Icarus Project ATL: Jacket, Snowbride, Death Domain, and Goldyard!! @ Star Bar

"Queen Killjoy & Team Luis Present... The Icarus Project ATL Kick off show! featuring: Jacket: Snowbride: Death Domain: GOLDYARD: -------FREE!!!!---- ABOUT TIP: The Icarus Project is a radical mental health support network, online community, and alternative media project by and for people struggling with extreme emotional distress that often gets labeled as mental illness. We envision a new culture and language that resonates with our actual experiences rather than trying to fit our lives into a conventional framework. We believe these experiences are dangerous gifts needing cultivation and care, rather than diseases or disorders. By joining together as individuals and as a community, the intertwined threads of madness, creativity, and collaboration can inspire hope and transformation in an oppressive and damaged world. Participation in The Icarus Project helps us overcome alienation and tap into the true potential that lies between brilliance and madness. Art and music can be safe outlets of expression and community-centered events can help foster communal healing."

"Continuum" new work by Sanithna Phansavanh and S. Patricia Patterson @ Beep Beep Gallery

""Continuum" is a collection of watercolors, painted by S. Patricia Patterson and Sanithna Phansavanh, that explores past, present, and future connections. For Patterson, it is a construction of memories from familial artifacts and nostalgia. For Phansavanh, it is a dissection of The Universe's matter and its metaphysical energy."
