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.

I met my 1st husband at Dotties! Carnal Carnival Days!
that place was rad. sluts everywhere and awesome pours on the drinks. killer shows. so loud you didn't have to pretend to hear what the dumbass next to you was saying.

I first saw Sleater-Kinney at Dottie's, after the show was relocated from Savage Pizza. True story.
did gucci mane ever get to release those 10 albums?
if the old dottie's/lenny's building lasted longer than the building that housed the new lenny's, why did lenny's move anyway?
This place was one of the last true dives in ATL. The bouncers turned a blind eye to pot smoking and outside liquor. The junkie bartenders would serve an 8 year old. One night I shared a bottle of Cisco with a guy named Bubba. I remember booty dancing with Dottie, the drunken 80-something owner one hip hop night. I discovered some of my favorite metal bands there. And Its where met my future wife. *sheds tear*
