Re: “8 greatest punk shows in Atlanta

Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring of 1980. I remember that someone gave Iggy a single white rose during the show which he proceeded to eat! The Restraints opened and the singer was hit with a Tooheys beer oil can which he stuck on his Kaiser helmet spike.

Re: “8 greatest punk shows in Atlanta

That poster is for the Iggy Pop show on March 11 1983 @ 688 club. It was an incredible show and LOUD!!!!! I'm still kicking myself for not knowing in time about week long stint, I could've been there every night.

Re: “Takénobu's Iron Will

CR, thanks for hipping us all to this cat, who sings as well as he plays !

Here's a great clip from YTube
Blues cello…

Vox, his learning, both as a young Suzuki method student & letaer as an adult, was briefly described in the article.

I see he's been covered by CL previously [… ]. How'd I miss that ?
Gotta read every issue !

Re: “Takénobu's Iron Will

Nice article, and wishing him success. Any mention of his classical music training?
(the reason I ask is that Atlanta has some very impressive classically trained musicians in the city and it would be interesting to see some profiles of them as well).
To take classical, "pop", one needs to have started to master classical first else it seems a marketing label.

Re: “Headliner’s revival

Human beings should be taught from a young age that friendship is about going to the movies, concerts, restaurants, parties, being there for someone when they need to talk and someone to turn to when you need to talk and going to each others funerals and weddings, etc. Maybe even writing songs and making music together.
The moment money becomes involved you have to realize and accept that this part of your life has nothing to do with friendship and you should treat your friend and anyone else involved like you never met them before and assume you can not trust them.
Everything is discussed, everything is agreed on, everything is in writing, everything in writing is reviewed by your own lawyer and you hire your own accountant to audit all business. Then, and its only a maybe, you might still have a business and a friendship.
Think about how more valuable a class in "friendship and business" would be to most people in high school or college than calculus.
But I sympathize with this man, I learned these lessons several times in my life myself. It gets very, very expensive, wish they had had a class, calculus never made me any money.

@carl r white - THIS IS WHY I LOVE ATLANTA - moved her in '09 after 16 years in LA and 17 in Miami, both 'international' cities, and this is by far the most integrated, accepting and friendly city full of unexpected alliances and friendships I have ever encountered - proud to be a transplanted ATLien

Re: “The last honky-tonk

You look at the pictures and I know what many of you are thinking but you can not always judge the book by its cover, believe it or not, the local chapter of Black Lives Matter has started meeting at SoCo every Monday night.

Re: “The last honky-tonk

A wonderfully truthful article About Atlantas last great Honky Tonk. Memories I will always hold dear, both good & bad. My prayers for their continued existance continue for the community. I Love that place & the opportunities and experiences it provided. Even the lessons learned. Although my path has changed I wish them the very best!

Re: “Why Goodie Mob’s ‘Soul Food’ is the greatest Atlanta rap album of all time

Rodney, hell of a job. Pulitzer Prize level made my eyes misty with all of the back stories, locations & you captured the real vibe of that era. Especially, Money Makin' Martell Homes!! You know, I always said you had 2 different things happening--Atlanta & ATL, Decatur & The Dec. Both parallel realities happening at the same time. Big Shout out to 5 Points Flea Market, Candler Road Flea Market, Glenwood Flea Market, Old National Flea Market, Greenbriar Flea Market...and Third World Records / what you really know about the Dirty South????
