ATL Concert Roundup — May 12-18

Deer Bear Wolf
Art by Mike Germon

THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

Deer Bear Wolf Launch Party
w/ Nomen Novum, Ladybeard, Narrator, Tim Kohler
Tuesday, May 13
Mammal Gallery – 91 Broad Street in Atlanta 30303
Admission $5 / $20 with magazine

Launching a print publication in this age of digital dominance is a risky venture to say the least, but something tells me that Davy Minor and the impressive crew of local artists he’s assembled for the first edition of Deer Bear Wolf aren’t in it for the money or the notoriety. The de facto mission statement for the Minor’s venture is to create a “new movement celebrating Atlanta’s art, music and literary communities,” and the new quarterly magazine (limited to just 200 copies) is, for now, the centerpiece of the revolution. In addition to musical performances from the acts listed above, the evening will also feature readings by Winston Blake Wheeler Ward, Amy Herschleb, Caroline Cox, Muriel Vega, Daniel Beauregard, Joe Ennis and John Carroll. Laura Relyea of Vouched Books will serve as emcee. The launch party also doubles as a kind of release show for the new Nomen Novum EP, Lookalikes, as each issue sold comes with a free digital copy of the record.
