The Black Lips w/Curtis Harding & PUJOL 

When: Thu., July 17, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: $15
It was just a couple months ago that PUJOL celebrated a second Saddle Creek album — Kludge — that’s a hooky, highbrow garage-punk achievement. This time around Daniel Pujol & Co. aren’t sharing the bill with locals, but with like-minded Atlanta acts with new albums of their own. Patrick Carney was one of the producers who helped The Black Lips streamline the scuzz and turn out first-order garage-pop for their latest set, Underneath the Rainbow, which contains a track co-written with show opener Curtis Harding. Harding may seem like the odd man out, considering there are throwback soul songs of a nervy, confessional bent on his debut Soul Power. But he’s as into punk as any of them (check out the scraggy, elemental chording of “I Don’t Wanna Go Home”), plus he and Lips singer-guitarist Cole Alexander have a side project called Night Sun. Despite being the closest to an unknown in this lineup, Harding has the most legit credits; he used to tour and record as a backup singer, and fill-in hype man, for Cee Lo Green. That was well before “Fuck You,” in case you’re wondering. JEWLY HIGHT
