5 things to do: Umphrey's McGee

What's happening in Atlanta today

Underground Atlanta community meeting w/ developers

Underground Atlanta - 50 Central Ave. S.W. Atlanta, GA 30303 Free. 10 a.m.
Are you wondering what type of businesses the proposed $300 million Underground Atlanta redevelopment will feature? Curious what the architecture will look like? Concerned over whether access will be controlled in and out of the property in the heart of Downtown? You'll get a chance to speak with executives from WRS Real Estate, the South Carolina developer that's been negotiating with the city for two years to buy the property in the subterranean shopping mall's atrium. That's located across the street from the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau center on Upper Alabama Street.

3rd Anniversary Party

Eventide Brewing - 1015 Grant St. S.E.Atlanta, GA 30315 $15. 6 p.m.
Eventide turns three years old! The anniversary tour package includes specialty anniversary glasses, five six-ounce seasonal pours, and one six-ounce Anniversary Ale pour. While tickets to the main event are sold out, Eventide will still sell regular tour tickets at the door. This event was rescheduled because of #Nopocalypse2017, and those tickets will be honored.

This is Where I Live opening reception

Parlor - 644 N. Highland Ave. N.E. Atlanta, GA 30306 Donations suggested. 7 p.m.
The new year causes us to evaluate where we are in our lives. Are we still satisfied with our jobs? Are we ready to take the next step — no matter where it lands us? Laura Katherine’s well-timed exhibit, This is Where I Live, gives a visual context to our intangible internal emotions and experiences. Katherine contrasts vivid, fluid watercolor with solid pen to create abstract environments where viewers can understand the subconscious and connect with themselves. Sounds like the perfect starting point for New Year’s introspection and resolutions.

Umphrey’s McGee

The Tabernacle - 152 Luckie St. Atlanta, 30303 $35. 9 p.m.
This Indiana sextet has consistently confounded expectations over a nearly two-decade career. Nowhere is that more clear than with the group’s recent Zonkey release that ambitiously takes music from sources as disparate as Metallica, Radiohead, Ted Nugent, Bob Marley, Ween, and many more and mashes them into jaw-droppingly creative tracks played live with deceptive ease. It’s this eclecticism and experimentation that makes each gig a one-of-a-kind performance. Each show features the “Headphones and Snowcones” experience where — for an additional charge — high quality wireless headphones provide a pristine listening soundboard mix, a perfect antidote to this venue’s often boomy sound.

Bounce Nite

The Mammal Gallery - 91 Broad St. S.W.Atlanta, GA 30303 $5. 10 p.m.
Bounce Nite starts with a twerkshop by Remedy (Dance 411, Rhythmz & Motion). Put those skills to work and bounce to bounce, club, house, reggae ton, and hip-hop music courtesy of Divine Interface (Harsh Riddims) and Anonima (La Choloteca).
