Upcoming Atlanta Concerts: Watch the Throne

Posted By on Tue, Jul 26, 2011 at 2:32 PM

>> Since 1989, Earth has been crafting senses-shattering doom metal, and in support of their latest record Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light, the band is bringing their dense, droning soundscapes to the Earl. $15. 8 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 11. The Earl. 488 Flat Shoals Ave. (404) 522-3950.

>> Wu-Tang Clan members Raekwon and Ghostface Killah take to the stage to perform their Raekwon's seminal debut album Only Built 4 Cuban Linx... in its entirety. $30, 8 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 15. The Tabernacle. 152 Luckie Street. (404) 659-9022.

>> Though their name might imply an ironic take on the roaring, low-brow rock you're likely to find at a NASCAR race, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. a fairly straightforward pop act, full of airy melodies fleshed out by bright keyboard lines. Catch them on tour supporting their debut LP, It's a Corporate World. Price and time TBA. Tuesday, Sept. 20.The Drunken Unicorn. 736 Ponce De Leon Ave NE.

>> Indie pop act Foster the People has gained a ton of goodwill with their debut record Torches. Enough that last time they were in Atlanta, tickets sold out fast. Be ahead of the game on this out. $20, 7 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 21. The Masquerade. 695 North Ave. (404) 577-8178.

>> Not content with the release of their upcoming record Watch the Throne, hip-hop mega stars Jay-Z and Kanye West are bringing their collaboration on the road. There's already a lot of hype behind this tour, but if anyone can live up to it, it's these two. $50-$250, 8 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 29. Phillips Arena. 1 Phillips Dr. (404) 878-3000.

>> If you're looking for a slightly more low-key concert that night, you might be interested in Ra Ra Riot's appearance at the Earl. At the very least, drinks are cheaper there than at Phillips Arena. $15. 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 29 The Earl. 488 Flat Shoals Ave. (404) 522-3950.
