For those who are unfamiliar, Trinumeral is an annual (mostly) electronic music and arts fest that takes place on the date in which the day, month, and year come into alignment. Past Trinumeral shows have taken place throughout the Southeast in such cities as Miami, Asheville, Charlotte, and it hasn't been through Atlanta since the 7/7/7 show at the Masquerade with Entropy, Elevado, Social Espionage, Richard Devine, and more.
This year, Trinumeral returns to Atlanta to take over three stages at the King Plow Arts Center and Terminal West on Wednesday, December 12 (12/12/12). The lineup boasts performances by Flying Lotus, Elliot Lipp, Nadastrom, Ployd, Kebbi Williams, Cloudeater, Break Science, Teebs, Isness, and several others. To celebrate, we've added a Trinumeral channel to our DeliRadio player (in the upper right hand corner of this page), and fortified with as much music from the festival's lineup as we could muster. More artists will be added over the coming weeks. Tune in and freak out.
>> PSY threw Hammer a bone at the American Music Awards (not a real thing) last night. In a somehow related thing, according to Taylor Swift, you can't put a 10 min song on an album. P.S. I love you, Christina Aguilera.
>> Lovely perfect songbird Fiona Apple wrote a sour patch song called "Dull Tool" and gave it to the makers of the officially unofficial sequel to Knocked Up, This Is 40, to include in their movie and soundtrack.
>> Foot-stompin' greasies Mumford & Sons bummed a ride all the way to Austin City Limits.
>> The new James Franco-directed, Lindsay Lohan-(guest)-starring music video for R.E.M. Collapse Into Now tune "Blue" is exactly what you think it will be and yep moving on.
Madonna brought her MDNA Tour to a sold-out crowd at Philips Arena Saturday night. She covered both her new material from MDNA along with her hits such as "Like A Virgin," "Express Yourself," and "Vogue," performed with her usual over-the-top stage show and dancers.
Hard-hitting bands from around the Southeast took on the Highlander Saturday night, drowning out thoughts of impending doom (You know, that whole Mayan prophecy thing) with a cocktail of cheap beer and fast, gritty music. Burns Like Fire, Flat Tires, Antagonizers ATL, Brains for Brunch, and the Nervous Jerks all played strong, churning through roughly half-hour sets with high-energy performances and stage antics that often spilled into the crowd.
The Antagonizers ATL managed to blow a guitar head, Brains for Brunch knocked over a few speakers, and an amped-up crowd busted so many beer bottles on the dance floor it was impossible to keep count. (Pro tip: Glassware at a concert is never a good idea) Still, we survived to see another day. Organizers called it the first-annual Apocalypse fest. If this rock we call home holds together another year expect to see round two come November 2013.
Until then, peep the video of Brains for Brunch performing "Zombie Girlfriend" above and check out all the photos from Atlanta Punk Apocalypse 2012. Click any of the photos below to see the full photo gallery:
However, the last two tracks of the recording, "Post Set pt. 1" and "Post Set. pt. 2," capture pretty much exactly what their titles say: A nearly hour and a half-long improv set that broke out after everyone had performed. It's divided into two parts during which Dave Matysiak, Adam Bruneau, Madeline Polites, Gary Eddy, Matthew Hollis, Robby Kee, Cole Alexander (Black Lips), and Bradford Cox joined in to foster a strangely melodic set, filled with all sorts of unorthodox rhythmic cycles, noise, and loops.
In case you missed it, Mr. SOS, Ricky Raw, and A-Bomb (aka Mighty High Coup) teamed up with Caspa for a marriage of the group's slow and low roll set to Caspa's smooth production. It's a bit of a break from Caspa's typical style, but it's a bad-ass pairing for everyone invloved.
"On It" will be released worldwide on December 10 via Dub Police.
All you have to do is be the first person to leave one of the correct answers to the following question in the comments section of this post and the tickets are yours. ... And it's an easy one.
Over the years, Hawks vocalist Mike Keenan has been in two bands with Deerhunter bass player Josh Fauver. Name one of those bands.
A lot of hip-hop heads agreed with Nas when he proclaimed that "Hip-Hop is dead." To support that notion, declining album sales were referenced as a vital reason. Its one thing to not buy an album being that there are other ways to get access to music (i.e. downloading), but what about concert tickets? Cypress Hill is a group who is believed to have a solid fan base all over the nation. That's why it's baffling that tickets for their show at the Tabernacle this Saturday with New York up start Action Bronson have dropped from $27.50 to only .75 cents!
From the Tabernacle's website:
"We're thankful for our fans so we want to send you to Cypress Hill this Saturday for (almost*) free! Use this link to grab your tickets ... "
On Thursday, on my way to meet James, Streetz 94.5 spun his breakout single immediately before B.o.B.'s "Still in This Bitch" and 2 Chainz's "I'm Different." The slowly swinging "All Gold Everything" was a natural fit for its rotation, although the rest of Don't Be S.A.F.E. is far from formulaic. His countrified flow warps and slumps its way through the groggy "One More Molly," only to perk up and relay a joke his mom told him at IHOP in "Sneaky vs. Selfish."
James spoke with CL about the making of Don't Be Safe, the delay leading up to his first-ever A3C performance and how he feels while navigating the rest of Atlanta's rap scene.
>> Rolling Stone goes deep inside Bruno Mars' dangerous new pop album, Unorthodox Jukebox.
Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
