ATL Concert Roundup — January 27-February 2

Cusses

THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

Cusses
w/ The Head, Lazer/Wulf
Thursday, January 30
The Earl – 488 Flat Shoals Avenue in Atlanta 30316
Admission $8 / Purchase Tickets

Savannah-based Cusses have made Atlanta a second home over the past couple of years, winning over local fans with a combination of blistering guitar-based rock and effusive hooks. The band’s high-energy stage shows have played a major role in their ascent, with frontwoman Angel Bond writhing, dancing and screaming her heart out over guitarist Bryan Harder and drummer Brian Lackey’s grungy rhythmic assault. They’re a band clearly on the verge (of what, exactly, remains to be seen: there’s breaking big nationally on one end of the spectrum and reaching their creative apex and sputtering out on the other), which makes Thursday night’s show at the Earl too intriguing to pass up. Cusses are hungry for success, that much we know. Now it’s up to them to prove they deserve it.
