In the end, Poison is a bucket-list add-on for anyone that’s yet to witness their grandiose stylings, and a do-over for any diehard that relishes in the good times. We won’t tell you that Poison puts on the greatest show on Earth, but if you believe that, we won’t argue with you either.
The POND gang serviced onlookers with abundant space-inspired hooks, wild and weird lead-singer antics, and just a let-loose dosage of good old-fashioned fun. POND is, most definitely, one act to catch on the live circuit.
Musically, Briggs’ sound is a fusion of power-pop, hip-hop, soulful rock, and a slight hint of goth mixed in there somewhere. Her vocal prowess is that of legends, her bone-chilling high notes can tear the roof off of any venue. Finally, her showmanship is heartfelt and honest, her non-stop violent gallivanting perfectly epitomizes her thumpers. Bishop Briggs is the total package.
In the end, the ceremony flowed superbly and smoothly to the tune of nineteen tracks, nearly three hours, and over eighteen thousand diehards. To witness the Dave Matthews Band in their element is to witness legends at work.
It was a legitimate Throwback Thursday in Atlanta. Nineties alt-rock icons Everclear took over the entertainment reins at the Buckhead Theatre, and funneled their contagious raw energy into a gnarly night of grunge that diehards will not soon forget.
The kids are young and the tunes are just a handful, but, if these 4 can keep pace with their strong start and fulfill their promise, the sky is the limit. Calpurnia has been able to catch our attention, now it is just a matter of holding on to it. We trust they can.
The Sum 41 chaps are a can’t-miss act. Their pageantry is pure gold! It’s a raging time very few can measure up to. Their on-stage presence is engaging and they seem to honestly enjoy their fans’ company.
If you are into deep thought-out lyricism, then make time to read up on Sadie Dupuis. If you’re into deep thought-out lyricism and bad-ass tunes, then make time to listen to Speedy Ortiz. If you’re into deep thought-out lyricism, bad-ass tunes, and amazing live music, then make time to catch Speedy Ortiz on their You Hate The Title Tour.
Led by shaggy-haired Bardo Martinez, this quartet produces soulful concoctions with a flair for Latino tunage. Their sound is funky-soothing and aphrodisiac-like, their presence feels like a throwback to a time of awesome, and their fans fucking dig it!
For three days Atlanta lived and breathed music. For three days all the worries were left behind, and Shaky Knees brought the city together for the love of tunes.
