Nashville has more dive bars than ATL now that sucks. tbh i think that new bar in Grant Park is more of an example of what is to come for that neighborhood & in some ways I even feel complicit in the 1st stage of gentrification. Eyedrum is gone too. if Daddy D'zs & Nicks to GO leave you can kiss that neighborhood goodbye. the city need more diversity not a yuppie_monoculture. i've never went to Backstreet either but that is another example of the little things that made the city a great place to live & have fun. also Atlanta, GA implements a no-smoking ban like in other big cities then well tl;dr bitches...
*Christ, Lord sorry
They're kind of starting to look like a joke of themselves. Song's good though.
All 80s movies want you...
Their show with Chris, Lord about 3 years at the Unicorn was the best.
I am a connoisseur of this real soul music like the comment above I'm glad to check out the artist who i'm not familiar with. the list is tight!
You've got a few of my faves listed here, plus a bunch I've never heard of. Thanks for introducing me to some new GREAT music. I'm listening now!
Neko Case has so much to applaud. Hardest-working girl who we're glad to have on the East Coast.
Hands down, the worst bathroom in Atlanta, but damn, there was some good times there.
It will be missed, years of life, death, realness. . .its was an education in real life.
Here's what you do. Get Pandora, pay for the subscription (around $3 per month), type in an artist Jamal used to play (Incognito, Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai, etc), and enjoy.
Terrestrial radio is dead.

Innovative & fresh sound !!!
Too many memories. I remember we were smoking meth on the back patio and a bartender who shall remain nameless, came out saw us, shrugged and went back inside.
Awesome memories for sure... Lenny's played such a major role in my music life. My first real show was at Lenny's ias part of the rap duo Adult Film Stars. A week later we were introduced to A-Bomb who booked almost every show we did there (and we did a bunch). There I met a multitude of talented folks I now work with today and consider friends including A-Bomb, The Wheeler Boys, Ricky Raw, The Fresh, Southern Folk etc.
Much love and respect to the good people of Lenny's!!! We need more venues that cultivate the up-and-coming artists.
