ATL Concert Roundup — September 29-October 5

J Mascis

THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

J Mascis
w/ Luluc
Friday, October 3
Terminal West – 887 West Marietta Street, Studio C in Atlanta 30318
Admission $18 ADV / $20 DOS / Purchase Tickets

Even if he wasn’t the mastermind behind the consistently great, pioneering fuzz rock band Dinosaur Jr. Even if he wasn’t a six-string genius capable of delivering at any moment, on any given occasion, a heroically epic solo or mind-beding psychedelic guitar freakout. Even if he wasn’t an alternative era legend with a string of classic tracks to pick and choose from. Even if J. Mascis wasn’t all these things and more, I’d recommend you check out his solo performance at Terminal West based on the strength of his new solo album alone. Tied to a Star finds him crafting another set of gorgeous, delicate indie folk tunes similar to ones he unveiled on Several Shades of Why, his solo debut. Although not entirely unplugged, the songs are mostly quiet and elegant, full of light, intricate picking and the quiet majesty of his world-weary falsetto. It’s yet another impressive effort from a man who, after nearly four decades in the game, continues to challenge expectations and push forward in new directions.
