March Madness.

If you're a band reading this, please direct your attention here.

This week/weekend/next week is frightfully chock full of good acts. So much, in fact, that I have placed a call to the government to lend me the human cloning tool they keep locked up in the basement of the Pentagon so that I may place myself in more than one venue over the course of three days. They asked me who my shrink was and then told me I should fire him.

Wednesday, March 22 - Straylight Run is headlining the Loft with support from The Spill Canvas and The Exits. I haven't seen them live, but a friend of mine who is normally into pretty heavy stuff informed me that they are great live. If you don't know about them, they are not heavy at all. They actually have an old-school emo sound that's kind of like The Good Life. The tickets are $10 in advance, and it's an all ages show. 8:00 p.m. Yippee.

Thursday, March 23 -
***The Loft: Mute Math will be headlining with support from The Working Title and Atlanta's own The Futurists. This show is getting a poo ton of buzz. Mute Math reminds me of the Police, but with a punk-ish influence. It's a good sound, that's for sure. $10 for admission, doors @ 7 p.m.

***Vinyl: Eisley comes back through Atlanta with Simon Dawes and Brighten. I have not seen Eisley yet, but that will change tonight. They're composed of three chicks and two guys and have a very mellow and smooth sound that makes for a great soundtrack to a chill night. It's like bathtub music...the kind you want to throw in while you're in there relaxing that really makes you ponder all of life's little happenings through bubble meditation. I'm reminded of frente! from the early 90's, who I have recently rediscovered through breaking out my CD collection.

Friday, March 24th - The Features are taking on the EARL. I'm not sure where I heard their song "Blow It Out," (maybe on 99X?) but I love it so much that I want to see them live. The chorus begins with "If you're happy and you know it, turn the volume up and blow it out" in this quivery vocal fluctuation. It's great! They hail from Tennessee, so they don't hit Atlanta too often. If their show is any bit as energetic as their songs, then this will be one to make me happy.

Saturday, March 25th - If you can't find something to do tonight, something is severely wrong with you. Emerge and take in all the marvelous options available to you!

***The Loft: Nine Black Alps will be headlining with support from local favorites Snowden and League of Evil. (If you're interested in my thoughts on Snowden or League of Evil, then I've just linked them for you) $10 to get in and doors open @ 8 p.m.

***Smith's Olde Bar: Rantings of Eva (my review on them here) will be opening up for The Whigs, who call Athens home. I've only heard many positive things about the Whigs, so this should prove to be a great show. I wonder if the Tories will show up. Nyuk nyuk...no? Okay, then. $10 for a ticket in, doors are at 8 p.m.

***The Drunken Unicorn: The Hiss will be headlining with support from The Drownout.

Monday, March 27th - Looks like I will be over at the Loft once again to kickstart the week with South and their New Order-esque sound from London and Margot and the Nuclear So and Sos. I'm interested in the latter simply because the name is utterly outrageous and long. The cost to get in is $12 and doors are at 7 p.m.

Tuesday, March 28th - FYI, She Wants Revenge will be at the Loft with Nightmare of You. I don't think I'm going to attend this one considering what happened last time, but it's worth mentioning.
