Kristen Hersh (of Throwing Muses) and Fred Abong visited the 40 Watt Club on Monday, June 6.

On Tuesday, June 7 at Flicker Theatre and Bar, Goodhost and Rubber Feet hosted The Dead Bolts from Chicago.

On Wednesday, June 8 up on the Georgia Theatre Rooftop, Grassland played the perfect show for welcoming in the summer. We encourage you to check out their other videos as well, as each of the four (maybe more?) vocalists contribute their own distinct sound.

Down below in the Georgia Theatre’s main room, Texan country legend Robert Earl Keen performed with supporting act Jon R. Miller (WV). Keen recently announced that he plans to retire from touring this year, after four decades of performing.

Across the street that same night, Nowhere Bar was filled with the sounds of Wim Tapley and Calico.

On Monday, June 13 at Flicker, Pinkerton Raid (Durham, NC) and Newport Transplant performed.
