-=FREE SHOW=- SATMC Tour Kick-off! w/THE PAUSES and 100 WATT HORSE @ 529

"SPIRITS AND THE MELCHIZEDEK CHILDREN - are going on tour! I feel like these guys tour a lot, and that's probably a good thing because unless you're intimately familiar with the book of Genesis its probably going to take a couple of tries to get their name right. I myself have avoided this problem by simply referring to them as the "hard rocking homies of the century." (the HRHC) Some people think "hard rock" is an outdated term, but (unlike SATMC) those silly people just don't understand how hard a band is capable of rocking. Get it straight before you come because these suckers don't mess around. THE PAUSES - The song "Christmas Time is Here" is misleadingly titled. There is no specific appropriate time of the year to listen to this jazz masterpiece, and even if there was it DEFINITELY wouldn't be Christmas-time. The composition is introverted and warped, gorgeously depressing, more appropriate for the deserted tundras of the Yukon than a New England postcard Christmas scene. The Pauses really get it; and their cover really captures those themes that make the song so wonderfully dissimilar to the cartoon that made it famous. I'm excited. 100 WATT HORSE - Once robbed a guy for a half-eaten turkey sandwich that ended up not even having any mayonnaise on it. THIS SHOW IS FREE"

GENIUS LOCI @ 171 17th Street, suite 2100, Atlanta, GA 30363

"Genius Loci, the solo exhibition of new photographs in Stephanie Dowda's series Topophilia. Topophilia is a photography project which explores the powerful sensations humans experience from natural environments. Inspired by the geography theory topophilia, as defined by Yi-Fu Tuan, the natural world holds emotions and memories which are experienced by humans. Topophilia seeks to understand these intangible sensations and share them through a transference of energy and elements from place, to film, and finally to the silver that holds light for the viewer in the photograph. Refreshments will be served and parking is free in the lot below the building. The exhibition is presented by Fourth Projects and in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography."

DEADCAT | Phracture | Kangarot | Clothes @ 529

"deadCAT was formed in a moldy basement in Edgewood, Atlanta, in 2011 by Britt Teusink (vocals, programming, synthesizer), Eric Grantham (drums, programming) and Gage Gilmore (bass, synthesizer). Since its inception the band has received numerous accolades, including being named “Best Creepy New Band” in 2012 by Creative Loafing. deadCAT, an off-shoot of weirded-out rockers A. Grimes, exists in a space wholly their own. A space filled with darkness and noises. A space filled with candied-loops and dirty bass. An electric space inside of hip-hop and rock-and-roll that’s contemplative and psychedelic, dangerous and weird."
