Lots and lots of great shows this week. Friday and Saturday night the We No Fun compilation party is going down at The Drunken Unicorn. Thursday night the Band Together 2009, a benefit for Refugee Family Services, is happening at The Earl. We sponsored 2007′s event and their headliner this year, Louisiana’s Brass Bed, killed it at a house show we did a year ago so I highly recommend that. Also, I left off M83 at the Civic Center Friday night because it is sold out and I could never actually recommend seeing the terrible band that is headlining. See you out in the city!

Last Monday night’s show at The Earl was a really good one. The Preakness did a typically solid set. The Love Language were nice live, although they are bit too conservative/old-school country-ish for my tastes. The Rosebuds‘ live show was thoroughly enjoyable and fun, and they appeared to have quite a fanbase in the ATL. Here are a ton of pics and videos:

Corndogorama is the best local music fest in Atlanta, so that is the biggest deal this week. We will have our guide to Corndog’ soon, but there is also a ridiculous amount of other great shows going on in town this week, so here’s some:
Tonight I urge you to catch Times New Viking, The Preakness, Gold Painted Nails at The Earl.
The Preakness : Demons
Wednesday night I’m going to catch the Russian Circles, Daughters, Sorry No Ferrari show at The Drunken Unicorn.
Thursday night Daniel Johnston will be at The Variety Playhouse.
Friday night Islands will be at The Masquerade. It is also the last ever night of Decatur Social Club. I’m going to try and hit both of those and Corndog’, so that should be a long day and night.
Saturday night Frightened Rabbit will be at The Drunken Unicorn.
Sunday night you can catch Zechs Marquise (featuring members of The Mars Volta) and 13 Day Mission at an early show at The Ozone Lair.

It’s a great weekend for shows in the ATL. Today is all about Bloc Party. First, you can catch them for free doing a DJ set in Criminal Records at 6pm and later that night they will be at The Tabernacle with Maccabees and The Noisettes. While you are at Criminal Records, you can pick up the Whirlyball 7″, which features songs from Deerhunter, Selmanaires, Carbonas, and The Coathangers. The purchase of that record will also gain you entrance to the show Friday night featuring all of those bands at the Whirlyball place in the ‘burbs. I saw Mogwai there last year and it is an interesting venue. If you have a ticket to the soldout Kings Of Leon show at The Tabernacle Friday night, you will get to see the much better bands on the bill, Snowden and The Features. Another great Friday night show you could catch is Silver Lakes, Wax Fang, and Slushco at The Earl. Late night after all of the great music, Decatur Social Club is celebrating its 3-year anniversary and it looks to be really crazy.
Saturday and Sunday you should head down to The Virginia Highlands for Summerfest. The Selmanaires and Anna Kramer will be at Lenny’s Saturday night while Mitch Easter, Tim Lee 3, and The Preakness will be at The Earl. I think I’ll be checking oujt the Screening of the new Flight Of The Conchords HBO show sponsored by Kissatlanta at The Doo Gallery. As you might remember, I love these guys and am excited to see them at Bonnaroo. If you’re interested in attending, it is free, but you must RSVP. If you’re into hip-hop, you should go to The Masquerade Saturday night for Sage Francis, Buddy Wakefield, Buck 65, and Alias.
Ok, how about some tracks to preview:
- Bloc Party : The Marshalls Are Dead
- Maccabees : Latchmere
