Our top three picks for tonight, Thursday 3/10
THE MASQUERADE –
A Place to Bury Strangers(with Hooray for Earth) –
A Place To Bury Strangers have often been called “the loudest band in New York”. This may very well be the case, but unlike much so-called “loud” rock and roll that’s out there, APTBS is not loud simply for the sake of it. The sonically overdriven sound they’ve accomplished is no clumsy accident, but a carefully cultivated and well-maintained entity all its own, fostered by an unbridled passion that’s clearly evident in every li…ve show they play and each recording they make. A Place To Bury Strangers does not so much play songs as allow them to pour out. They are songs about longing, heartbreak and confusion played extremely well and at a passionately loud volume. While there are obvious reference points: Pornography-era Cure, early Ride, My Bloody Valentine, and pre-1990s Jesus and Mary Chain, the sound is all their own, in part due to singer/guitarist Oliver Ackermann’s day job of building custom guitar pedals. Coupled with the solid bass of Jono Mofo and the relentless drumming of Jay Space, the APTBS team is a force to reckon with.

THE HIGHLAND BALLROOM-
AM Gold –
Composed of Joel Burkhart, Jim Stacy, Blake Parris, Jeff Langston, Jett Bryant, Eric Young, this band is on our ‘must see” list. Joel Burkhart is quite possibly the best vocalist in Atlanta. Am Gold drops the hits of the 70’s with style and finesse with fantastic vocal harmonies. Sit back and enjoy!
THE CLERMONT LOUNGE-
Yes, we said it… The Clermont. Ledfoot Messiah Is the culmination of a collective 100+ years experience creating music. It’s about Les Pauls and Marshalls, It’s getting back to no frills rock without the FX. It’s not about cool haircuts, shiny shirts, or white belts. It’s fist pumping, foot stomping riff-rock at its finest.
The members of LFM have independently shared stages with artists such as White Zombie, Ace Frehley, Ted Nugent, Anthrax, Saliva, Train, American Hifi, Drivin and Cryin, and Our Lady Peace…just to name a few. Since their inception in September 2007 LFM has directly supported Vince Neil, Skid Row, Daryl “DMC” McDaniel, and Speed X. Currently LFM is putting the finishing touches on Their 2010 Debut DEVOLUTION Co-produced By Rachel Bolan (Skid Row) and Brian Collins (Blue Light Entertainment).
“We’re NOT reaching for the brass ring, LFM is about making music that fans of rock want to hear because at this point in our lives we have to play or some one is gonna get hurt.”
It’s not for people who like paper it’s not for people who like scissors it’s for people who like ROCK!
Also, our boys The Six Shot Revival! –
In a world driven by the need to mass produce by way of cookie-cutter molds, the team of THE SIX SHOT REVIVAL have found it deep in their creative processes to deny the urge to mimic their surroundings through a successful attempt to prove, as in the days of old, that SOUL triumphs over polished, over-produced, systematically formulated insta-pop every time.
