It's not much of a contest. Between the gestapo tactics of the mammoth Lakewood and the relatively roomy, food friendly natural amphitheater at Chastain, the latter feels like a walk in the park ... which it sort of is. Of course if it rains like it did for the majority of the Brian Wilson show, everybody gets wet, and those hard metal seats make life, errr, challenging during lightening storms. But on those nights when the moon is out, the music, not to mention the wine, is flowing, and the candles are flickering, Chastain earns its reputation as the quintessential open-air Atlanta summer concert venue. less...

The Starlight's annual Labor Day blowout is a wonderful mix of retro cool — vintage cars in the crowd and vintage B-movies on the screen — with great live rock/blues/rockabilly/R&B bands performing until it's dark. Admission costs a tiny fraction of a Music Midtown ticket, you can bring your favorite chairs, and it's BYOB! Why pay $4.50 for lukewarm Bud in wobbly plastic cups when you can have icy bottles of Warsteiner from your own cooler? less...
