Singer/songwriter Amy Ray began exploring self-image and social injustice with her bittersweet folk duo Indigo Girls. She continued with her first rebellious rock solo album, Stag, which featured a wealth of guest backup artists as she searched for stylistic footing along a gnarled backbone of rootsy bristle. But with her sophomore full-length, PROM, Ray’s grown past her own awkward phase and sounds utterly confident in her songwriting and identity, delivering vignettes of surging struggle both melodic and crunchy, wrenching yet assuring.

By booking midsized touring shows, 14th Street Playhouse has tapped into a huge Atlanta audience and attracted such appealing one-man plays as Leslie Jordan’s Like a Dog on Linoleum and Charles Ross’ One-Man Star Wars Trilogy. Nevertheless, the most ingenious, robustly theatrical event from out of town turned out to be THE MYSTERY OF CHUNG LING SOO at the 7 Stages Back Stage Theatre.

DANIEL CLAY doesn’t travel the same dusty roads as folk shouters Woody Guthrie or Bob Dylan. His stark and stylish strumming and ominous songwriting offer a welcome sense of malevolence to the craft.

The concert business has gone from bad to worse in terms of customer exploitation through ticket brokers and price gouging, and the industry has suffered as a consequence. Fortunately for Atlanta, we have guys like ALEX WEISS who are willing to do whatever it takes to bring in decent acts for the right reason: the love of music. After booking the Echo Lounge for several years, Weiss now mans his own company, OK Productions. His recent ventures include annual events like the Elvis Death Day show at Variety Playhouse, Drive Invasion at Starlight Six Drive-In, as well as booking Brian Jonestown Massacre and Japanese acts like Guitar Wolf and the 5,6,7,8’s at the Earl.

Though the range of work in the summer-long ART IN FREEDOM PARK exhibition ran the gamut from so-so to sublime, it was nice to see this grassroots effort (and a laudable involvement by the Freedom Park Conservancy) in trying to bring art out of the galleries and to the folk who bike, jog and saunter through the 210-acre greenspace. Notable pieces include Meshakai Wolf’s faux animal-crossing road signs warning of citified critters like squirrel and opossum on the roadways; Linda Stern‘s politically charged and user-friendly “Hammocks for the Homeless” made of construction site material; and Phil Proctor’s bright yellow metal sculpture that looks like metal origami plunked into the middle of the park. The Conservancy’s dedication to public art continued last month with the installation of folk artist Thornton Dial’s sculpture “The Bridge,” the largest piece of public art ever created by the artist. The work, at the corner of Ponce de Leon Avenue and Freedom Parkway, sits on the John Lewis Plaza dedicated to the civil rights legacy of that beloved U.S. Representative.
The cross-shaped park runs from DeKalb Avenue to Ponce de Leon Avenue, from Boulevard to Oakdale Road. www.artinfreedompark.org. www.freedompark.org.

Surf music is a quirky, guitar-driven, instrumental force of rock that comes in waves. Of course, it’s been around for years with artists like the Ventures and Dick Dale leading the movement since the late ’50s and early ’60s, but every few years, there’s a resurgence of surf in the South. Now a bright new combo is reverbing through the area, hanging 10 on cool vintage equipment. THE SURGE is a trio led by surf-meister guitarist John McCorvey, who goes by the stage name “Eddie Katcher.” He’s joined by bassist “Mitch Matrix” and drummer “Stix Stechkin,” a veteran of Alabama’s legendary Penetrators. Surf’s up! less...

Lately, HEATHER LUTTRELL, the lovely, heavily inked rock and blues performer, has been collecting quite a bit of printer’s ink for her appearance on CBS’ “Rock Star: INXS.” So she didn’t win the contest; she’s a rock star already and one of the best Atlanta performers around. And besides, why should she be stuck singing Michael Hutchence songs at some crappy dive when her own new Grits N’ Pulp album is so much better. The single may be “Anything But Me,” but when this fiery redhead launches into tunes with titles like “Wild Women Don’t Get the Blues (They Just Get Drunk),” she channels Janis, bests Bonnie Raitt and roars like the hyperactive lovechild of Ani Difranco and Social Distortion.

With a nose for cutting-edge artists and a willingness to take chances, Sam Romo’s eponymous venue, ROMO GALLERY, has added a fresh new conceptual-art voice to the growing energy of the Castleberry Hill art district.

Any given performance from BLAME GAME offers a glimpse of a group driving toward complex, tonal perfection. Along with bassist Chris Ware, guitarists/vocalists George Asimakos and Andrew Wiggins construct a grid of gigantic arches that are pounded into place by drummer Alex Lambert’s swagger from rapid-fire precision to loose improvisation. On stage, Lambert and Ware are stationed front and center while the rest of the group follows their extravagant hybrid of jazz and hardcore. Stage presence, wardrobe and personality are secondary to the shimmering and ever-thickening sounds of a group that relies on the chemistry of intellect.

Theatrical Outfit’s new permanent home, the 200-seat BALZER THEATRE, boasts a slick art deco design, a huge stage, a great sound system and not a bad seat in the house. The Balzer Theatre gives skittish audiences more than enough reason to venture downtown so long as Theatrical Outfit stages shows such as Hank Williams: Lost Highway that live up to it.

Though she’s still just a pup, recent Atlanta College of Art grad HEIDI GELDHAUSER really goes out on a limb. Her thesis exhibition, Fluff, at ACA’s Gallery 100, featured an installation of wedding cake and plates that invited her audience to participate in the art experience, which provoked an unexpected reaction from gallery-goers. Some were content to just eat cake, but in a troubling turn, others vandalized the installation and smashed dozens of plates. Geldhauser’s implicit question of just what constitutes art was clearly provocative, even threatening to some. In a concurrent show, The Future Perfect featuring work by graduating ACA students, Geldhauser challenged convention yet again by making a wonderfully clever and labor-intensive work that suggested the Sistine Chapel done by a fourth-grader. Clearly ambitious, Geldhauser is currently at work on a follow-up work addressing myth and fantasy. less...

It’s a tie: PYLON and LOVE TRACTOR, two of Athens’ most influential ’80s new-wave bands, returned to dynamic duty this year following lengthy periods of inactivity. Both groups have an impressive canon of material, with their most enduring works released through Atlanta’s DB Recs. Pylon, created in 1979, stick to the old-school Athens adage: “If one of us leaves, it’s not the same band anymore,” and has the distinction of being the only Classic City act from the “golden age” to feature all of its original members. Formed in the ’80s, Love Tractor now consists of founding singer/guitarist Mike Richmond and a gang of relatively new recruits heard on its recently released Black Hole album. Welcome back, folks, we missed you!

Kevin Barnes’ Athens psych-pop crew OF MONTREAL has worked from the backbone of Beach Boys’ vocals and Beatles’ straight strum to make records that run the gambit from sweetly earnest to playfully psychedelic. The result was so lovable that when its former label, Kindercore, ceased operations in 2003, it only took a few months for the band to land on Midwestern indie Polyvinyl. Barnes tweaked his lo-fi sound, noticing that all the kids were dancing these days, and made two albums (Satanic Panic in the Attic and this year’s The Sunlandic Twins) with disco-inspired sing-alongs like “Rapture Rapes the Muses” and “So Begins Our Alabee.” We’d follow Barnes through sludge, so we have no problem with a little booty-shaking, albeit in an indie-rock kinda way.

One of the most striking of this fair city’s cornucopia of comely burlesque queens is the delightful CALU. Whether she’s commanding attention as a member of local burlesque troupe the Doll Squad, shrieking in the horrible B-movie horror send-up Cheerleader Autopsy, slinging drinks and DJing at Smith’s Olde Bar, or just being herself, Calu’s mysterious beauty is awe-inspiring. Her deliciously tattooed body is truly a curvaceous canvas of colorful ink. But don’t stare too long because just like the sun, she’s brightly illuminating and dangerously combustible. Yeah, she knows you want her, but just look and don’t touch — because she’ll surely kick your punk ass.

A life of classical training has given TERRI ONSTAD a unique set of tools in her role as Atlanta’s musical journeyman, providing cello, rhythm guitar, bass, and vocals to a number of different projects. Whether working with Sonya Tetlow, No River City, Slim Chance & the Convicts and others, her quick ear for picking up a melody and her powerfully emotional cello playing bring new textures to whatever style of music she’s experimenting in. She also effortlessly provides pitch-perfect harmonies that would make Emmylou Harris green with envy. If you are looking for something special and unique to make that next recording project stand out, Terri is the go-to gal. less...

Before any purists cry “Foul!” and claim that Cajun and zydeco don’t count as “world music,” last time I checked my atlas, Louisiana was part of the world. Led by Whit Connah and Barbara Panter-Connah, HAIR OF THE DOG has been making asses shake and feet glide for almost 30 years. The musical spirit has stayed on course as the group celebrates the culture and sounds of the ragin’ ’coon ass. But this band isn’t limited to one trick, and on any given night it may rip through a stack of classic country tunes, or a perfect Delta blues riff. With a repertoire like that, how can it not be “world music”?

EYEDRUM ART AND MUSIC GALLERY’s continued presence since opening in 1998 is a reassuring reminder that the indie spirit lives on despite the rising rents and in-the-box art thinking. This artist-run, nonprofit, interdisciplinary living room for the city’s culture hounds has capitalized on a renaissance sensibility by bringing video, performance, poetry, music, visual arts and everything in-between all together under one roof. Notable events this year included the Submerged and Shelter group shows, a solo exhibition by Gail Vogels, the Indie Craft Experience and a screening of artist Joseph Cornell’s films.

Though almost unknown in Atlanta, WE VERSUS THE SHARK has blown the mind of the college town to our east several times over the last couple years. The quartet of young’ns make music that’s peripatetic, frenetic and infectious. The entire frontline sings, with voices ranging from the snarl of bassist/keyboardist Jeff Tobias to the lilt of guitarist/keyboardist Samantha Paulsen. Each song is like three mini-tracks bombarded together in a supercollider with sounds of echoing computers going haywire and thrashing metal-god roars all built around lockstep rhythm and jazzy drumbeats. And the best thing about this band: Even when a set blows your hair back like you just removed a screwdriver from a light socket, the members still aren’t satisfied. Part Dismemberment Plan, part Motorhead, part Rapture = gonna make you sweat.

If you read the Vibes section of this venerable rag a year ago, you know all about the troubles that haunted I AM THE WORLD TRADE CENTER right around the release of its third album, The Cover Up. Quick recap: lost label, got label, members ended romantic relationship, back together, off again, on again, off again, Amy Dykes diagnosed with cancer, on again, members get engaged, Amy’s cancer goes into remission, off again. That’s a long and intensely emotional year. What does it mean for fans of the band who don’t want to butt into Dykes and bandmate Dan Geller’s personal life? Not a whole lot, but their sound is better, owing to a new lower octave that Dykes discovered, and aside from her haircut, the onstage interplay is the same as ever, though maybe with some extra tension. Chemistry doesn’t always end with relationships.

Banjo/trumpet-playing singer/poet Bill Taft has been one of Atlanta’s most musically interesting and creative fringe dwellers ever since the days of the legendary Mudd Shack. His collaborations with dearly departed local icons Benjamin (Smoke), Deacon Lunchbox, and the Jody Grind were progressively evolving variations that led ultimately to HUBCAP CITY (FROM BELGIUM). Taft, guitarist Matthew Proctor, and drummer Will Fratesi manufacture soundscapes and auditory portraits derived from their subjective life experiences filtered through a prism of alternating urban blight and hope. Of course, the group also has a song cycle inspired by the record reviews in Sassy magazine, too. If there is ever a documentary made on the “Cabbagetown sound,” Hubcap City (from Belgium) would be a vital component.
