The Wolfpack
When determining how badass a band truly is, its live show can’t just be good. The sheer physicality of its performance must force patrons to shut up and listen. No Atlanta band pulls off this feat with as much originality and force as THE WOLFPACK. Helmed by Grammy-winning saxophonist Kebbi Williams,more...
When determining how badass a band truly is, its live show can’t just be good. The sheer physicality of its performance must force patrons to shut up and listen. No Atlanta band pulls off this feat with as much originality and force as THE WOLFPACK. Helmed by Grammy-winning saxophonist Kebbi Williams, the Wolfpack is a backing band composed of sousaphone players that fuse musical prowess with a seamless ability to switch genres. The group has performed Star Wars’ “Emperor’s Theme” and rearranged Flying Lotus tunes. The portability of sousaphones, also known as marching tubas, allows the pack to roam around the crowd and blare its bass-heavy lines from every corner. www.facebook.com/wolfpackatl14. less...

The Constellations
By law, Atlanta's local watering holes have to close their taps at 2:30 a.m., but that doesn't mean the party's over. The after-hours scene is no place for the faint of heart, and THE CONSTELLATIONS' electro-debauchery provides an insider's look at what makes the South so dirty. The group's 2010 album,more...
By law, Atlanta's local watering holes have to close their taps at 2:30 a.m., but that doesn't mean the party's over. The after-hours scene is no place for the faint of heart, and THE CONSTELLATIONS' electro-debauchery provides an insider's look at what makes the South so dirty. The group's 2010 album, Southern Gothic, is a sleazy, sweat-soaked rollercoaster ride into the excesses of the night, with a cast of shady characters along for the ride. Your mother might not be their biggest fan, but their lecherous ways landed them on Virgin Records and helped them score a spot opening for Snoop Dogg on stages across the country. And you know Snoop don't party with amateurs. www.theconstellationsmusic.com less...
