It’s that time of year again… the month of lists! With everyone making 2013 lists for top album, song, video, etc., I thought it would be a good time to bring back the top Nine Local shows to see this month in Atlanta. Several bands local to Atlanta and Athens are on the list, including repeat appearances on Nine Local by Quiet Hounds, Ruby Velle & the Soulphonics, Gringo Star, Turf War and Futurebirds. See the complete list below and go support live music!
#1: Brazos at 529 with Ski Lodge and Minor Miracles – 12/13 | 9PM | $8 – Get Tickets
With so many repeats making the list this month, I decided to go with some recent discoveries at the #1 spot. Listen to “How the Ranks was Won” from Brazos’ latest album, Saltwater, and “Just to be like You” from Ski Lodge’s debut album, Big Heart. Good sounds coming out of New York!
#2: Jason Isbell at Buckhead Theatre with St. Paul & the Broken Bones – 12/6 | 9PM – SOLD OUT
Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit made our list in November of 2012. Jason returns with a solo set while fellow Birmingham natives, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, open the show. Listen to the soulful sounds of SPBB here:
