Preparation.

This week has kind of sucked for music, although last night I saw Kill Gordon play at the Drunken Unicorn; this being the first time since they got a new drummer settled in. While KG’s performance was right along their usual style, the sound at the Drunken Unicorn sucks. There, I said it. I’ve never been to a show there where it actually sounded good, and I was kicking myself in the ass for changing purses before the show and leaving my earplugs behind, as they would’ve been some kind of saving grace last night, I’m sure. The good news is that the new material KG debuted is definitely stuff that far from sucks, so there’s something to look forward to. Catch them during the 99X showcase at The Loft on October 7th during Atlantis. They go on at 9:00.

Speaking of Atlantis, it’s this massive three day music conference/festival October 5-7, which happens to be next weekend. You can get a schedule here, and if you happen to notice that there are multiple acts you want to see at multiple venues on multiple days, your best bet is to shell out $40 for an all access wristband. It gets you into every venue over the course of three days, so you don’t have to pay a cover. Yay. You can get those wristbands from Ticket Alternative. Info on them here.

But before the madness of next weekend, I’m going to attend a couple of shows.

I am apparently getting in the car and driving to the lovely North Georgia Mountains to reconnect with my hippie roots to go to this Sautee Jamboree thing on Saturday, September 30th. The weather is really nice, and I’m losing my shit over here because I’m so excited. Plus, Jon Harris and the Sin Hounds are playing, and they’re like, my favorite blues act around here. There will also be sets from Big City Sunrise, Blueground Undergrass, and The Last Waltz Ensemble, just to name a couple. If you get a wild hair, you should trek up there, because it looks like it’s going to be a blast.

And, it has been brought to my attention that DJ L over at BreakThru Radio is hosting a show next week called “In the Mix,” and it’s basically a way for her to brag about the Atlanta music scene to a national audience, so if you’re curious about the acts around here and want to taste them all in one place, it’d be a good idea to check that out. Just click the link there to BreakThru Radio beginning October 2nd, which is Monday (can you believe it’s already October??). Here is the set list of bands she’s planning to spin…you’ll probably recognize a few of them from right here in this very blog:
