We keep telling you and telling you (and telling you), so here it is, one last time: go see David Bazan tonight! Sure, he's a morose motherfucker, and his songs rarely rise above 60 BPM, but dude is way captivating nonetheless. Plus, your younger, more emo self will rejoice in the fact that he's bound to play some old Pedro the Lion tunes. (Like this one! I'll bet he plays that one.)
Along with Bazan, Omaha upstarts Mynabirds will be on hand to play some of their mighty fine '70s-country-soul-influenced jams. Seriously, go to this. My fortune-telling instincts tell me it'll be a knockout. A knockout, I say!
$14. 8:30 P.M. The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950.
Since the underwhelming Battle of the Sexes came out earlier this year, we've not heard much from Chris Bridges. Until now! "Everybody Drunk" is the first single from Luda's upcoming release (titled Ludaversal, according to his Wiki page). As you may have gathered from the very unsubtle title, it's a party jam. The just-released video, which you can see above, compiles footage from this year's Luda Day Weekend, which took place earlier this month and brought a whole gaggle of hoop stars, rappers and actors to Atlanta for an extended weekend of...partying, I guess.
Ignoring the fact that the whole thing is basically a Conjure ad, it's fun to watch and see how many celebs you can spot. It's like "Where's Waldo," only with Ron Artest. Also, there's a whole lotta booty jigglin', so it's probably NSFW.
Duck Sauce "Barbra Streisand," guest starring Kanye, Vampy WK's Ezra, Pharrell, Chromeo and more. Your butt will dance in its seat. Yes. It will.

Decatur emcee Cyhi da Prince enjoyed a bit of local radio play last year with the homegrown anthem "Sweet Georgia", jumped on the remix to Yelawolf's "I Wish", and kept it 100 on the Greg Street-sponsored "What da Dec been Missin" mixtape. Apparently the hard work paid off, as Cyhi popped up on the latest single leaked as part of Ye's GOOD Friday series. "So Appalled" is mostly a strange lament to being rich over a gloomy beat (sidenote: Jay-Z's verse apparently touched the untouchable. Please Hammer, don't hurt 'em.), however Prince Cyhi takes time to compare himself to passed Atlanta resident Ralph David Abernathy, offer an eleventh commandment, make a Noah's ark reference, and claim a spot on God's ipod. The Old Testament is a good look this year. Stream the track on youtube below, or grab it from the Fader.
Most shows we rep around here are for a good cause, even if it's just because. But this Sunday at 529, some class acts are taking the stage to throw a Benefit for Laura Hunt — the girlfriend of CL music writer Chad Radford for the last 15 years.
Hunt recently underwent costly surgeries to have an ovarian tumor removed. The good news: The surgery was successful. The bad news: By the time Obama's health care reform bill makes procedures like that affordable, we'll all be too old (or sick) to care — hence the benefit.
With the Coathangers, Howlies, Mermaids, the Clap, Knaves Grave. $10 donation. 8 p.m. Sun., Sept. 26. 529, 529 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-228-6769. $1 raffle for gift certificates to Criminal Records, Aurora Coffee, Videodrome, High Museum, Fernbank, King of Pops, and Tough Love Yoga.
If you're like me, this video will bring you an exponential amount of joy. No need to thank me - thank Athens bedroom-noise instigators The Dream Scene. Or, thank filmmakers John Michael Boling and Javier Morales, who have rather brilliantly laid TDS' hyper-caffeinated "Body Magic" over awkward old Barbie Dance Club footage. This video is soooooo Friday!
EDIT: Not new. Still great.
Last night, Best of Atlanta winner Janelle Monáe appeared on "Last Call with Carson Daly" to perform "Cold War," a standout track from her LP The ArchAndroid. Before you freak out, yes, Carson Daly still has a TV show. And though he's still a fantastic douche, he has been hosting some pretty great musical guests, like eternal-no-album-putter-outer Jay Electronica. (Come on Jay! I know you have it in you!)
I thought this was going to be about the restaurant but this band looks pretty…
Screaming Female's Rose Mountain is a beast and might be the best rock album this…
I don't have a fucking sense of humor.
