To say there's a lot of good shows over the next eight days would be an understatement.
Monday, The Coathangers will play The Drunken Unicorn along with Chain & The Gang (featuring Ian Svenonius, The Hive Dwellers (featuring Calvin Johnson, and Pine Hill Haints. The Coathangers never disappoint live, so if you can make it out it will be worth it. This one will apparently start around 8 p.m. and end around midnight.
Saturday, Derek Lyn Plastic, The Carnivores, and several other bands will perform at the corner of Euclid and Moreland in Little 5 Points. It will be the debut of DLP's new bassist, and will be a chance for each appearing act to be seen by lots of shoppers who otherwise would not see these bands.
Later in the evening at Foot Klan Headquarters (next door to the Doo Gallery) will be the first of two Plexi 3 shows in a three night span. These Milwaukee-based garage rockers are a 7 Inch Atlanta favorite. Also appearing are Chicago's Smith-Westerns and local acts The Stolen Hearts, Customers, and Doomed Youth.
Wrapping up the excitement will be Plexi 3 and DLP, yet again, and local comedic garage duo Double Dynamite. This show lands on the one year anniversary of the first-ever 7 Inch Atlanta post.
