Check out our eco-friendly Holiday Guide—I talked to some broke-ass musicians (Zach from Umbrella Tree, above) about what they'd do for gifts this season. Not surprisingly, they all get pretty creative.
Aesop's Fables: Indie emcee gets married, moves across the country, grows up. (Playing Monday, 19th at Mercy Lounge.)
Fang on Wax: Wax Fang's latest finds them sharpening their canines. (Playing Friday, 16th at The Basement w/Hotpipes.)
Night Vision: On her latest, Mary Gauthier shows she can make good use of a match in the dark. (Playing Friday, 16th at The Belcourt.)
Six Degrees of Feist: Sure, she's famous now, but what about her friends? (Playing Wednesday, 21st at the Ryman.)
In the Spin: Who won the Buddytown vs. Left Can Dance dance-off? Were we disappointed in The Sky Drops show? Got plans Thursday and Friday night? What Atlanta garage-rockers want you to "nestle in" their "boobies?"
