Sabrina “Rose” Harvey — one half of the Atlanta-based hip-hop/soul duo Slick & Rose — hasn’t released any new music in a hot minute, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t been busy.
A NY-born singer/songwriter, Harvey has been involved in a bevy of projects in the last few years (including the Web video series Friday Girl TV), but her latest endeavor — Women Interactive — is set to launch Oct. 12.
Taking place at Spelman College, Women Interactive is a two-day, women-focused festival designed to explore the connection between creativity and technology. The event features workshops, lectures and more that focus on creating, sharing and monetizing digital content. The conference schedule includes programming for filmmakers, bloggers, graphic designers, and — of course — musicians, among others.
“It’s become apparent that technology is integral to life in the 21st century,” said Harvey, who serves as one of the festival’s curators. “That said, it’s important that women have a seat at the table — not just as consumers, but as creators.”

Here we go again! The second annual Little 5 Fest is upon us this Saturday, September 29 — less than a week away.

Click below for a complete schedule of artists and and performance times.
On Sept. 19, Arrested Development will celebrate two decades in existence by headlining Creative Loafing's Best of Atlanta/40th Birthday party.

The episode reveals the struggles and successes of the multi-platinum Grammy-winning group started by Speech and Headliner when the two were students at Atlanta College of the Arts. Currently on a 20-year anniversary tour, Speech and the current lineup of AD will perform back-to-back hits from its 1992 debut 3 Years, 5 Months and 2 Days in the Life Of... — including "Mr. Wendal," "Tennessee," and "Everyday People."

Inspired by the lack of bath salts found in the Miami face-eater’s system (only THC), this month’s video flyer for Star Bar’s monthly Free For Y’all is one of Newmerica's best yet. For this one they collaborated with Negashi Armada (Blunt Fang) and Chase Tail (Dino's Boys) for a clear homage to the Warriors, with an all star cast of Atlanta's most savage street thugs.
Blunt Fang, Social Studies, Derek Lyn Plastic, and Dino’s Boys play Star Bar this Thurs., July 12. Free. 9 p.m. 437 Moreland Ave. 404-681-9018.
DJ Yusef, Cullen Cole, DJ Theo, and Stan Zeff and DJ BE of Tambor will be playing house music under the pavilion for a mixed crowd of house heads, families enjoying the park and curious onlookers.
While those five DJs round out the organizing crew, special guests DJ Tabone of WRFG-FM's "The Soul Chamber" and vocalist Sheila Ford add more heat to the bill. Ford will perform around 6 p.m.
"Right now, we are the only ones doing anything at Piedmont as far as soulful house. We wanted to be able to bring different nationalities together to be able to freely express themselves through music and dance at an outdoor event," DJ Yusef says.
Yusef says the process for obtaining his event permit was fairly easy, especially once the city and the Piedmont Park Conservancy understood the event's mission. "They were open once we expressed what we were doing and that it was an event that was for all families and children, and the type of music that we're playing."
The event is free and is from noon to 9 p.m.
Below is a video from Ford, and for more details on the kind of music that may not have been welcome and what music to expect at ATL Greenhouse, check out onthelookoutatlanta.com.
This Thursday (June 28), Noot d' Noot and Gun Party will share the stage at the Clermont Lounge, providing the soundtrack for what's sure to be a night filled with the kind of debauchery that you don't even want your friends to know about. Earlier this week Gun Party slid into the number 20 slot in CL's Music Issue feature, "20 most hated ATL bands, rappers, guilty pleasures, and electro douches - and why we love them."
So in honor of this week's show, Gun Party offers up their top five reasons why in the hell anyone would want to go see the 20th most hated band in Atlanta play a show in the city's oldest gentleman's club.
5. Because on June 28th of 1997 Mike Tyson was disqualified for biting Evander Holyfield's ear after three rounds of their WBA heavyweight title fight in Las Vegas, and we are planning a reenactment.
4. Rock 'n' Roll (good or bad) and strippers (good looking or hideous) always go well together. Plus, you can listen to music, drink excessively, and watch strange porn alone at home or in public at the Clermont. Keep in mind, at the Clermont, someone else does the cleanup.
But with female MCs Adrift Da Belle, the Born Genius, Kizzy Krew and Suni MF Solomon on hand - particularly Adrift's strong Atlanta following and Kizzy's future of rap sound - the competition will be tough.
DJ Ill Will is on the decks and the always hype Fort Knox is hosting alongside Blackberri.
$10-$15. Show starts at 10 p.m., courtesy of Eargasm Entertainment - whose Sucker Free Sundays helped Shakedown Street get voted Best Hip-Hop Venue in the Triangle by the Independent Weekly - and Atlanta crew No Leaks Entertainment.
"Eargasm Entertainment and No Leaks Entertainment have teamed up to bring ATL underground hip-hop and N.C. hip-hop together for one night only," says Eargasm talent and PR manager Portia Daniels-Murphy. "We had to go through some struggles behind the scenes to make this happen, but it's going to be an incredible event." Check out onthelookoutatlanta.com for more on the ATL-N.C. connection.
