Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun

Kathleen and I went to see Today the Moon, Tomorrow the Sun, a local Atlanta band, on Saturday night at the Earl. It was the album release show for Wild Fire, which I found out later reading the liner notes was funded by Kickstarter, which is cool. Jtrav’s band Sealions played as well.

Blitzen Trapper

We saw Blitzen Trapper at The Earl last Thursday night. Pretty good.

Wye Oak opened and they were pretty good. I wish I had known more of their stuff before we went.

Blind Pilot

We saw The Low Anthem and Blind Pilot at The Earl last Sunday. Blind Pilot was really good. They have a lot of atypical instrumentation (Upright bass, electric vibraphone, etc). It comes together to make some quite pretty music.

Low Anthem was ok, I may have liked it more if I hadn’t been so tired (most of their stuff was slow).

I don’t know how we do it, but no matter how late we show up, we always end up right at the stage at the Earl.

St. Vincent

On Sunday (6/14), Kathleen and I went to the Earl to see St. Vincent. It was great, because we had been exhausted from biking around town all day and kickball practice, and we got there right as she was about to go on, which was early for a headline at the Earl.  She had requested it to be a non-smoking event, which is awesome since you usually can’t go to the Earl without coming home wreaking of smoke.

She was really good again. This album seems to be a lot heavier than the last though.
