Fun weekend of music: Free show at Star Bar on Thursday, Corndogarama on Saturday and Sunday!

In case you haven't heard, Atlanta Guardian is hosting a free night of awesome music this Thursday, June 25th at The Star Bar! Lindsey Appel, A Fight to the Death, Royal Bangs, and Adron will all be playing. Here's a little info on these bands:

Atlanta Guardian is thrilled to be able to fly Adron in from New York to her hometown to give you all an unforgettable performance. She only plays with her full band in Atlanta once every six months so don't forget to catch her all-star cast including Mario and Tommy from the Selmanaires plus Chris Case (Samadha, Cadillac Jones) at what's sure to be one of the best concerts all year.

According to Spin magazine, the best band at Bonnaroo '08 was Royal Bangs. Originally from Knoxville, they've been touring the country all summer. This is an amazing chance to see one of the best emerging bands in the country.

If you've never seen A Fight to the Death play live, imagine being on a haunted carnival ride in an old west saloon. If you can't visualize that, you should just come to the show. One of Atlanta's favorite bands, they get their audiences moving every time.

Lindsey Appel is an up and coming singer / songwriter. She was voted best singer/songwriter in Atlanta in 2008. She will be starting off this incredible night of music, so make sure to get their on time!

Also, this weekend is CORNDOGARAMA in East Atlanta! Corndogarama is a two-day Atlanta music festival that will include things like tricycle races, BEER, stunts, MUSIC, eating contest (of course) and tons of other totally entertaining human tricks. You can check out the schedule here. There are several bands that I'm really excited to check out and lots of bands that I'm excited to see for a second or third time!

I feel like there is just a lot going on right now in the Atlanta music scene, and I'm so excited to be a part of it in whatever way that I can! Whether it's playing a couple of acoustic tunes at Eddie's Attic open mic night or singing with Novo Luna at the Red Light Cafe, rockin' out to Attractive Eighties Women or A Fight to the Death at The Earl or the Star Bar, checking out upcoming and new bands at these great venues, or hanging out with the guys at Atlanta Guardian. Right now is a very exciting time in music, especially in Atlanta. I think everyone should go out and support new, independent, and local music. There is some really great talent out there! (And we all know you can't really rely on MTV or mainstream radio to find new, good music anymore.)

In the meantime, I'm busy recording my acoustic album. Tomorrow, I'm working on the title track, "Unsent Letters." I'm really very excited about this. These songs have all been with me for three to five years, and it's really time to put them all on a cohesive album. I'll feel really great about it when it's finished. It's going to be simple, raw. Just me and my guitar, maybe some percussion, piano, and harmonies. We'll see.

Anyway, let me know if there are any shows coming up that you'd like me to mention on here! I always love to support new music. Oh and sign up for my mailing list to stay up-to-date!
