The Haraway Brothers, 9/7 @ Big Tex, Decatur, GA
There’s a glorious night coming next Friday, as the Haraway Brothers will play a Free show at Big Tex on the Decatur Square. It’s Will’s Birthday Party (no presents, though he enjoys tequila and vinyl records.) We’ll start about 8:30 so come enjoy some food and we’ll give you a badass night of music at one of our favorite spots. Go ahead and prep by listening to “The Haraway Brothers Wish You Love & Luck in the World” so you’re ready for action.

Boom- so easy. With that shameless coercion out of the way, we are extremely excited to announce our special guests for the evening, Pony League from Atlanta. Such a badass band, please check out their 2018 record, “A Picture of Your Family” because it’s wonderful. They have a song about Rick Ankiel– a legitimate American Hero, for God’s sake.

- We were very proud of our buddy Adam Smith for his photography show last Friday at City Winery, where he sold all kinds of prints and then we enjoyed a sold-out show from Cedric Burnside and the one-and-only Ben Nichols, both of whom are featured prominently in Adam’s work. You can still buy one from him.
- Ben played a number of songs from Lucero’s incredible new album, “Among the Ghosts,” released just two weeks ago. We talk a lot about Lucero in this space, as we saw one of their very first shows at Young Ave. Deli in Memphis and have loved them ever since, and we’ll do it again because this latest album is among their very best. Ben is a new father and you can hear it in songs like “To My Dearest Wife,” perhaps the finest song he’s written. They’re at Terminal West on 9/20-21, do yourself a favor!
- We were very lucky to catch the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Wheels of Soul Tour for the second year in a row, this year with Drive-By Truckers and Marcus King as featured guests. This right here was my favorite moment, “Everybody Needs Love” with Susan, Derek and the TTB singers, with Patterson’s Dad David Hood on bass. If you want to get real specific, my favorite moment is at 5:35. Holy Shit that’s as good as my memories. Best band in the world.
- Man, so much good music lately– we’re hooked on Wild Pink’s “Yolk in the Fur,” the new Death Cab for Cutie record “Thank You For Today“, White Denim’s “Performance” and “Golden Age” from Houndmouth.
- Finally, congrats to our friends from Yacht Rock Revue, who sold out Chastain Park last Saturday. Still an amazing story, and speaking of which, here’s a great and hilarious story on them in Atlanta Magazine that is still making #YachtRock Twitter (it’s a thing) super mad. Keep it smooth, fellas.
