Can We Breathe Yet?

Yet another round of shows to attend in the coming week. Go ahead and make plans to catch any of the following:

**Monday, March 27th - I think I mentioned this one earlier, but once again, South is playing The Loft with support from Margot and the Nuclear So and Sos, who I am very interested to see on stage, as they have eight (yes, eight) band members. At first listen, Margot sounds like Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, except not as shitty. You'll just have to check it out for yourself. The show is $12 and the doors open at 7:00.

**Friday, March 31st -

Atlanta Music Guide's featured band of the month, Jil Station will be opening up the 10 High. This band is going places. Catch them now when you only have to fork out $7 to see them. This is where I'll be tonight. They go on at 10:00.

Sovus Radio has a show at Hard Rock with support from Elevation and Manchester Orchestra. If you end up here, I'd make sure it's late to see Sovus Radio, because unless you like music that sounds like everyone else mixed with lyrics so shallow and unimaginative that an eight year old could've written them, then I have a feeling you'll hate yourself for wasting a couple of hours on the supporting bands. $6

**Saturday, April 1st - Boulevard will be playing at Vinyl as support for Tora Tora Tora. Boulevard will give you more show for your $6 than anything else offered to you tonight, so go see them!

**Monday, April 3rd - Voxtrot from Austin, TX is playing the Drunken Unicorn. This band is selling out smaller venues up in New York with their diffrent and poppy sound. This is one to check out for sure.

**Wednesday, April 5th -

Ah, the moment I have been waiting for since the beginning of the year when I caught wind of Rhett Miller's plans to release a new solo album...he will be at the Variety Playhouse tonight. If you try to block me from standing in the front and center, then I might have to physically hurt you, so consider yourself warned.

I'm hoping I can get out of the Rhett Miller show early enough to make a trip over to the Drunken Unicorn to catch The Films from Charleston. Although I've not seen them live, yet, I'm chomping at the bit to because all of the demos I've heard out of them are stellar. It's one of those things where there's not a song I don't exclaim is my favorite upon hearing. If you like Atlanta band The Futurists, then you need to check out the Films. Trust me.

**Thursday, April 6th - Back to Vinyl for Rock Kills Kid tonight. This is a $.99 show put on by 99X, so scrape together the change for this one, it's worth it. I saw them open up for She Wants Revenge and Electric Six last month, and I've been listening to the EP non-stop ever since, if that gives you any indication of how super they are.
