As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m moving to Nashville! But that doesn’t mean @NineLocal will not continue recommending shows in Atlanta. I’ll be doing it myself or have someone help me, but for the month of May, there will not be individual posts for the top 9 shows. This list, however, is the top 9 shows to see in May. So get out there and support live music!
Update: As of 10/1/2013, I’m officially back in Atlanta. Nashville is amazing, but my “day job” brought me back home.
