Shakespeare Follies is returning to stage with a brand-new show themed around The Histories. Sound too much like high school? Don't fret. It's an evening of hilarious Bard-infused sketches, variety acts including magicians, dancers, and jugglers, and above all FUN! Think of it as Laugh-In (Shakespeare style).
Mixtape Atlanta is giving away a pair of tickets to this great event. To enter, simply send us an email at Contest@MixtapeEntertainment.com. Be sure to put "Pick Me!" in the subject line. Tickets are $20 at the door day of show.
One week from tonight on Friday, May 2 Indianapolis Jones will host a night of music, fun, and spectacle to celebrate their new CD release at The Goat Farm with special guests Yip Deceiver. The event is 18+ and doors open at 8pm. Tickets are only $10. Buy tickets here.
Combining some of Atlanta's most talented musical forces, Jones is fronted by Nicholas Niespodziani (Y-O-U, Yacht Rock Revue), Tim Smith (Jellyfish, Noel Gallagher and the High-Flying Birds), and Jason Nackers (Second Shift, Constellations). Think of Jones as more of an original rock odyssey encompassing various prisms of high notes and influencial movements from The Beatles, psychedelic funk, electric synth, and even contemporaries like The Black Keys and Daft Funk. This band needs to be on your musical radar.
This week Jones released a new music video for their song "Not Ghosts Yet". The collaboration of music, design, as well as Niespodziani's rhythmic jump rope makes "Not Ghosts Yet" the perfect taste of what is still to come from the band's music and live shows. Check out the video below, and watch Jones in action live on May 2.
Friday, April 11 Yacht Rock Revue hosted their annual back to the future- or, past- timewarp celebration of Reagan Rock Prom; an excuse for us all to pile on the blue eyeshadow, bangles, and dust off the ol' ruffled tux. This year's prom partiers did not disappoint. Although many dressed to impress, this year's winning Reagan Rock Prom King and Queen raised the bar with coordinating pastels, metallics, and sky high hair. Congrats to the featured couple on their totally rad look and a pair of tickets to this year's Yacht Rock Revival.
Atlanta based Aerobics Cube recently released their first music video, "Kettlebell". Combining their love of all things physical, the 80s lovin' music group takes on the Miley Cyrus hit "Wrecking Ball" with a few added swings...and leg lifts. Check out the fun spoof below.
Skid Row kicked things off on night one with a cover of Cheap Trick's "Surrender" from this year's 500 Song countdown as well as rocking the house with their own classic, "Youth Gone Wild." Other standout performances from the weekend included Dead Confederate's T. Hardy Morris covering Neil Young, Heavy Mojo bringing down the house with U2, and others. However, the most extraordinary performance came from Nicolas Duncan; a young man who is an extremely talented piano player and former children's hospital patient and Songs for Kids recording artist.
This weekend 500 Songs will host the weekend's countdown at The Earl starting Thursday, April 17. Admission is pay what you want, so please make an effort to support this amazing charity and the fantastic artists who perform.
Be sure to follow @MixtapeAtlanta, @SongsforKids, and #500SFK for all updates from and about 500 Songs for Kids.
One night from tonight get ready to cut footloose with Yacht Rock Revue for their annual Reagan Rock Prom. This celebration of 80s dance hits, ruffled tuxes, and of age drinking will take place at Park Tavern Friday, April 11 from 8-11pm.
Dress to impress...or annoy, and arrive early so you can get your photo taken in a retro Mixtape Atlanta photo booth.
Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Oh, and don't forget the corsage.
