For starters, THE EARL boasts $2.50 tall boys and friggin’ amazing sweet-potato fries. And unlike many beautiful dives, the sound here is stellar since being improved by knowledgeable knob guy Curt Wells. In the past year, the club hosted stellar performances from the Mighty Hannibal (backed by the Black Lips), Mission of Burma, the Fiery Furnaces and the National. Show booker Patrick Hill keeps things professional, while the crowd cuts loose. It’s the perfect blend of rock ’n’ roll. less...

All sorts of musical acts perform on LENNY’S stage — the ongoing experimentation of Kirkwood Ballers Club, hip-hop from the 2nd Sight Crew, and various others — but no club in Atlanta embodies the punk-rock spirit more. Over time, the club’s boast of being the “CBGB’smore...
All sorts of musical acts perform on LENNY’S stage — the ongoing experimentation of Kirkwood Ballers Club, hip-hop from the 2nd Sight Crew, and various others — but no club in Atlanta embodies the punk-rock spirit more. Over time, the club’s boast of being the “CBGB’s of Atlanta” has proven largely true. Local groups like Brass Castle, the Selmanaires and the Carbonas frequent the stage, as do label showcases from Rob’s House and Stickfigure. When a show sold out the 150-capacity venue, it really felt as though a band could tear the place down. Shoot, the recent eviction of the Memorial Drive location only earns it more punk points as club employees and supporters pitched in helping hands and their trucks to move equipment. less...

The very definition of a "shitkicker bar," the 9 Lives Saloon stands proudly at the intersection of Moreland and Euclid, cocked at a rakish angle like a Harley-Davidson kickstand. Home to more black leather than a busy night at the Chamber, the joint has defiantly kept heavy metal thunder alive in Little Five, surviving and prospering for years in a location where many previous clubs couldn't last a few months (hence its sarcastic name). less...

The Earl in East Atlanta will never be what the Point was to Little Five, but hey, so what. There have been some great shows there since day one, including a New Year's Day set by the Rock *A* Teens, high-energy sets by the Causey Way and Some Soviet Station for CMJ Music Fest and a packed-out anniversarymore...
The Earl in East Atlanta will never be what the Point was to Little Five, but hey, so what. There have been some great shows there since day one, including a New Year's Day set by the Rock *A* Teens, high-energy sets by the Causey Way and Some Soviet Station for CMJ Music Fest and a packed-out anniversary set by The Tom Collins. The best part about it is if you don't want to hear the band, you can hang out in front and still enjoy yourself. The sound isn't Atlanta's best, but the Earl has definitely been Atlanta's best rock club this year. less...
