For this last hurrah the line-up features an eclectic roster of acts that includes performances of folk-punk story telling from the Wild, mathy and electronic post-rock via This Piano Plays Itself, brittle and etheral strings/electronic pop tones from Tealights and the neo-soul/new wave sounds of Night Moves Gold.
There will also be DJ sets from Justin Hughes (Glen Iris, ex-Batata Doce, ex- Lady's Night, ex-rock*A*Teens) and DJ Press Play.
According to a post that went up on Pine this morning:
Our Star Bar series started with Soundlab 84, ISP and Pine back in January 2008 and, since then, more than 100 bands have played our free First Thursday shows, including: T Model Ford, Missile Command, Club Awesome, Hollow Stars, Hawks, Lay Down Mains, Deleted Scenes, Surfer Blood, Gold Standard, Thy Mighty Contract and many, many, many others. Many. It's been a lot of fun.
The show is free and the music starts promptly at 10 p.m. The Star Bar, 437 Moreland Ave. 404-681-9018.
