There’s a reason EDDIE’S ATTIC dominates this category year after year — the venue earns it! Even changes in ownership (now in the loving hands of Bob Ephlin) haven’t affected the quality of the bookings or the exquisite audio sound fans have come to expect. The local, regional and national performers love it, the audience loves it, and you ain’t a real Atlantan until you have been shushed by the Eddie’s Attic staff. With Bob and the titular Eddie at the helm, the Attic maintains a high degree of national respect. Besides, you gotta love the Monday Night Open Mike Shootouts. less...

When the bars in Fulton County began closing at 2:30 a.m., we sorta thought people might start going out earlier to pack in the same amount of party time. Fashionably early, it seems, never caught on. The party still doesn’t get hopping till just before closing time. Thankfully, you can drop late into the DECATUR SOCIAL CLUB. Every Friday, Azul turns into an indie-rock dance party with organizer Preston Craig and a rotating cast of DJs including Jamal, the_chuck, and DJDJ Dylan, as well as special guests. The usual crowd is excessively hip: We recently heard you can view dudes in berets. OK. So, if the berets aren’t enough of a draw, it’s free before 1 a.m. and a mere $2 cover after that. less...

Atlanta clubs shouldn't strive to be the "best club" just a really good club. In Atlanta, for some strange reason, IF A CLUB GETS NATIONAL ATTENTION, IT CLOSES. Think about this: When Jermaine Dupri showcased our nightlife in “Welcome to Atlanta,” most of the clubs he mentioned closed shortly after. Velvet Room? Closed. Kaya? Closed. Kream? Closed. Shark Bar? Closed. Club 112? Open, but it moved from the original location to Peachtree Street and, frankly, has never been the same. This year's victim? Vision (which sat on the hallowed grounds of Kaya). Dupri didn't shout out Vision, but celebs started flying into town to hold events at the newly renovated mega-club. Alas, Vision's lot will become lofts. Take note, club owners: Be successful, just not too successful. less...

Laughter can cure almost anything — just ask the countless number of people whom BUBBA D’LICIOUS has helped over the years. Then, you’ll understand the power of a man in a dress. Since 1989, Jim Mark’s alter-ego has helped raise more than $3.5 million for HIV/AIDS resources. And for the last 10 years, Bubba has presided over bingo every second Thursday to raise money for PALS (Pets Are Loving Support). Even corporate America has fallen under the spell of Bubba’s over-the-top slapstick humor: Volkswagen uses his mug to sell cars, and Miller Lite’s created a Bubba bobblehead doll.

The ATLANTA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA & CHORUS should be counted as one of the city’s true major-league teams, alongside the Braves. With more than 100 CDs and 23 Grammys among its members, the 95-member orchestra and its allied 200-member volunteer chorus have long shaken the foundations of that old-fashioned assumption that anything truly worthwhile in American classical music must come from New York City. The Braves have Turner Field, and the Falcons have the Georgia Dome. Now, the question is whether the community will pony up the cash to build the symphony a new hall designed by Santiago Calatrava.

YUNG JOC's - IT'S GOIN' DOWN, a brash club anthem that you heard seemingly everywhere. How did this snap music/crunk hybrid become a catchphrase among mallrats and dope boys alike?

This year, UPTOWN COMEDY CORNER returned to Atlanta better than before. In the few months since its reopening, the club has featured Paul Mooney among other big names in urban comedy, held auditions for HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam,” hosted the taping of Robert Townsend’s “Partners in Crime” for the Black Family Channel, and convinced the city of Atlanta to reinstate its liquor license. The venue itself is by far the most aesthetically pleasing and largest of Georgia’s comedy clubs. Plus, it has some fine-looking waitresses. Comedians beware, however. If you’re wack, the audience will boo you right off the stage. less...

In Roswell, there’s a nondescript but delicious barbecue restaurant that’s a bit too easy to miss. Every weekend, THE SWALLOW AT THE HOLLOW treats fans to intimate performances by musicians whose names and faces may not be too familiar but have impressive songwriting credentials. Modeled after Nashville’s famed Bluebird Cafe, the Swallow has become the premiere local listening spot for country music’s most prolific and successful songcrafters. Getting up close and personal in the room makes the experience even more exciting, and while the booking focus tends to be more on artists whose songs represent mainstream, radio-friendly country music, hearing the hits without all the obtuse production is a treat. less...

The predictably unpredictable nature of MJQ CONCOURSE keeps crowds rolling in. In theory, a “best dance club” has a huge dancefloor, but MJQ has a packed dancefloor, which is much more fun. Clubs don’t often age gracefully — in fact, most are lucky if they make it through the first year. But not MJQ. Between its regularly scheduled programming of Brit pop, hip-hop, reggae and rare grooves, the club manages to throw in weird theme nights like lingerie parties, blood wrestling, homecoming events and cowboys vs. ninjas (we can’t explain if you weren’t there). Plus, it books the hippest-of-the-hip DJs. No matter what the entertainment, though, a night at the Q, is almost always a damn good time. less...

When the legendary Backstreet closed its doors, Atlanta’s nightlife scene had already experienced major blows and was losing its big-city club creditability. Fortunately, the spirit, passion and soul of those days still lives at JUNGLE every Saturday.

MySpace is the 21st-century equivalent of a Trapper Keeper binder — it’s covered in unicorns, dragons, notes from friends, and rock ‘n’ roll fantasies. Except now you don’t just scratch “MASTODON Rulez!” in red ink, you can also link to the band’s profile, make a logo background or embed a song. Fittingly, heavy music fans have embraced MySpace, and CL deems the logo worthiest of being scrawled in the biggest block letters to be our own local metal leviathans. Over the summer months, Mastodon’s profile became a compulsory click for previews of Blood Mountain, the epic album from arguably Atlanta’s sickest act. The page also features links to behind-the-scenes videos, old photos and more. Though seemingly incessant road warriors, Mastodon always maintains a home on the Net.

Local DJ, promoter and band manager Preston Craig launched KISSATLANTA.COM in March 2005, according to its first post, “so that people might gain a better understanding as to what the driving force is behind the music and venues in Atlanta.” In just over a year, it’s made impressive strides toward that goal, from chatting up new cultural obsessions to disseminating information on hot new local bands.

Sometimes a quiet evening of jazz is better than a night in a loud and smoky rock club. Yeah, we know that sounds crazy. But one visit to CHURCHILL GROUNDS, and we were hooked. The elegant, cozy venue is a classy alternative to scuzzy rock venues. It’s an excellent place to take a special date: Have a glass of wine, relax, and let a night of music work its magic (you’ll just need to close the deal). But, first and foremost, it’s a great place to see intimate performances by a variety of jazz greats and up-’n’-comers.
