ATTENTION SYSTEM, PROMISE DECEMBER, SATELLITE DISTRICT This solid lineup features three of Atlantas top electro-indie-rock acts. Attention Systems synth-driven bombast makes for an explosively energetic live show. Promise December and Satellite District add a bit of 80s new romantic gothicism and melodrama, recalling the likes of David Bowie, the Cure, and Love and Rockets.

THEE CRUCIALS, MONDO TOPLESS, THE FN HEARTBREAKS Duck-walking garage-rock outlaws Thee Crucials Cant Sit Still, kicking a hot-footed surfabilly two-step over driving organs and an overflowing beat.

BIG & RICH, CRAIG MORGAN, LOVE & THEFT, BOMBSHEL For a while, B&R was the biggest thing in the business, and their blending of country, rock and hick-hop was quite unique. A yearlong break may have invigorated the duo, or killed the buzz. Three openers.
