MISSING PIECES: Kenosha Kid is Robby Handley (from left), Rick Lollar, Marlon Patton, and Dan Nettles.

On Thursday, April 4, Athens-based Kenosha Kid kicks off the first night of an ongoing residency at Buteco in Grant Park. “The ideas is to return on first Thursday night of each month, but the schedule will be a bit sporadic between April and August,” says Kenosha Kid’s guitarist, composer, and founding member Dan Nettles. “Still, we’re excited to play Buteco at least one night each month.”

Regardless of the schedule, Nettles will be in Atlanta a lot more often over the coming months, joining bandmates Rick Lollar (electric and acoustic guitar), Robby Handley (bass), and Marlon Patton (drums).

The group is still reeling from the February 12 release of Kenosha Kid’s latest LP, Missing Pieces via Vanity Records. The album resonates with flowing body of mostly instrumental post-rock, jazz, and subtle funk excursions that rise and fall in a cycle of unsettled quietude, all moving toward a sense of resolution. For the April 4 gig, the group will play two sets: A first set featuring songs from the latest album and beyond. The second set will be a free improv.

Free. Two sets (7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m.) Buteco, 1039 Grant St SE suite c-10. 404-963-2929. www.butecoatlanta.com.

While assembling CL’s 2019 Music Issue, I was only vaguely aware of a few loose threads that could tie the whole issue together. It was during my conversation with Drivin N Cryin frontman and principal songwriter Kevn Kinney that the answer revealed itself. Kinney and I talked about his early days in Atlanta, hanging out in his apartment with the members of Milwaukee punk band Die Kreuzen, who,... | more...
