The first installment featured performances from Ethiopian native Marian Mereba ("Rider"), along with Knox, who's debut album Boomtown is also forthcoming. The narrative for her 2010 video "Dollar" always stumps me because I tend to lose focus around the 1:30 mark (see what I mean).
AmericanCool's second installment — Thurs., Sept. 8 at Vinyl — doubles as a release party for pop-punk rocker and headliner Jimi Cravity's new EP, Maverick, with a portion of the proceeds to go toward Atlanta's Teach For America program.
If the social cause ain't motivation enough, there's also an open bar sponsored by Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey from 8 p.m.-9 p.m. Just try not to look too obvious.
$10. 8 p.m. Jimi Cravity with Graham Knox and Wil May. Vinyl, 1374 W. Peachtree St. 404-885-1365. www.AmericanCOOL.eventbrite.com.
