It's going to be a busy week in Atlanta. If you're not on a cruise ship like Derek Lyn Plastic is right now, you should get out and see some rock and roll.
* Noel Alone (Alex from The Barberries and Trashcans as a one man band) and The Uptown Bums from Texas are playing a benefit for Songs For Kids at Wonderroot tomorrow (Wednesday).
* Celebrate Colin from The Long Shadows' birthday Thursday at Star Bar with $1 PBRs. The free show will feature The Long Shadows, It's Elephants, and Street Violence.
* Friday will challenge us all to pick between the near-legendary Subsonics at The Star Bar and Those Darlins at The Earl. I, for one, am slightly leaning toward the latter.
* The Balkans and Shining Path, two extremely young and talented bands, are going to share the Drunken Unicorn stage Saturday with newcomers The Teenage Illiterates.
