ATL Concert Roundup — August 27-September 2

All Get Out

THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

The Favorite Gentlemen Tour
w/ All Get Out, Harrison Hudson, Death on Two Wheels, Junior Astronomers, Concord America
Thursday, August 30
The Masquerade – 695 North Avenue in Atlanta 30306
Admission $10 / Purchase Tickets

With an artist roster that includes the likes of such locally bred acts as Manchester Orchestra, O’Brother and Death On Two Wheels, as well as prime regional players like All Get Out and Junior Astronomers, Atlanta’s Favorite Gentlemen is our city’s best attempt to match the community-oriented, DIY ethos of the punk and hardcore glory years when labels like SST, Dischord, Touch and Go, Alternative Tentacles and many others were revolutionizing independent music and galvanizing their local scenes. A couple off weeks ago, the label launched their first ever Favorite Gentlemen Tour featuring four of its up-and-coming artists—the aforementioned All Get Out, Junior Astronomers and Death On Two Wheels, along with Nashville rockers Harrison Hudson—and this Thursday night the tour will hit the newly renovated Purgatory room at the Masquerade. Admittedly, the show lacks the label’s two heaviest hitters but anyone who’s interested in hearing the future sounds of one of Atlanta’s most important musical enterprises should make it a point to be there. And if you’re still on the fence, make sure you download the free label sampler, which features a track from each of the band’s performing.
