Keller Williams – 2/25, The Social: meh
Manchester Orchestra – 2/26, HOB: See this show
The Indigo Girls – 2/27, HOB: Ugh.
Thomas Wynn and The Believers – 2/28, The Social: If you’ve already seen them, see them again
Prong and Soulfly – 3/7, Firestone: They will: Prove you!/ Prove you wrong!
Dropkick Murphys – 3/7, HOB: Fun as long as you’re not a “Skinhead on the NBTA”
Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt – 3/7, BackBooth: The fun, crazy part of the Flaming Lips minus the good music
Michael Buble – 3/10, Amway Arena: Your mom will want to go
Deicide – 3/12, Firestone: Holy inverted cross burned into your forehead! Deicide! Your mom will NOT want to go
AIR – 3/14, Hard Rock Live: This will be a great show from a French band that doesn’t come here often
Ben Folds – 3/16, HOB: Meh
Rodrigo y Gabriela – 3/18, HOB: Really good stuffs
Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band – 3/20, HOB: Really?
Alkaline Trio and Cursive – 3/22, HOB: Cursive is good
Dillinger Escape Plan – 3/23, The Social: 2 words, math. rock.
Nashville Pussy – 3/25, The Social: Cray-zay
G. Love and Special Sauce – 3/27, HOB
Kreator – 3/30, Firestone: Firestone is definitely making a statement with the line-up of classic death / thrash metal
The Thermals – 4/7, The Social: Annoying buzz band that could put on a good show, especially at The Social
White Rabbits – 4/9, The Social: Buzz band that is worth the buzz
Of Montreal – 4/10, Firestone: Catchy, androgynous alt-pop with lots of costume changes. It’s like hipster cabaret!

Porcupine Tree – 4/23, HOB: Not sure what these guys are doing now
My Morning Jacket - 4/24, St. Augustine Amphitheater: Buy your tickets. Go! Go Now!
Band of Horses – 4/29, HOB: I’d be surprised if there were tickets still available. If Fleet Foxes could come to town we could complete the Beard Trinity – MMJ, BoH, FF – and an era of peace and prosperity will be ushered in.
If you feel like heading to Hotlanta, there are some amazing shows headed there that won’t make it here:
The Tres Anastasio Band -¬†2/23, The Taberncle: Phun!
Muse and Silversun Pickups – 2/23, Gwinnett Arena: Muse + Silversun = Smashing Pumpkins
Major Lazer and Sleigh Bells – 3/28, Masquerade: The hipster radar is starting to smoke … She can’t take much more captain!
Phoenix – 4/24, The Tabernacle: OK, the hipster radar just exploded!
