Re: “The Impotent Sea Snakes get their mojo back

Ha ha, the band that always plays in the safe confines of it's own club, opening only for national acts. What guts!

Re: “Damn hipsters: Is Atlanta falling prey to its indie cachet?

Good story and I read CL almost every week. However a key component to most thriving music scenes is genuine music criticsm, a dying notion in this town. The unfiltered comments by your token metal guy are great, even if he looks like a parody.

Re: “8 greatest punk shows in Atlanta

Stuck in Sandy Springs in the mid 80's me and a group of friends would go to the Metroplex to see just about anything, even if we'd never heard of the bands playing. One night we piled into a car to see a then-unknown band going by the enticing name of Butthole Surfers, and as fate would have it we happened upon some LSD as well. None of us would emerge from the club that night unscathed as the Surfers splattered the club walls with their demented genius the likes of which this city had never witnessed. The next year they came back on a wave of momentum and did a two night stint at the 'plex that didn't dissapoint and can be heard on their 'Double Live' document.

Also, along for the ride that fateful night: Jeff Pinkus, with whom I went to high school. He would later join the band on bass and remains a member.

Fave 'Plex gigs: Meatmen, MDC, Dead Kennedys, Suicidal Tendencies (still have the poster!) Bad Brains, and Adrenalin O.D. at the Luckie St. location. Fave 688 shows: Flipper, Black Flag.

Great article, thanks.
