The Yacht Rock Revue, honoring all things 1970s and ’80s, plays its “holiday spectacular” on Saturday (December 21) at the Roxy Theatre. The Revue began as a bar band in 2007, and its infectious stage show earned the group national tours, a sold-out show at Chastain Park and its own channel on SiriusXM.
Iconic Atlanta band Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ comes home for a December 27 show at Variety Playhouse. The band is riding high on the release of its ninth album, Live the Love Beautiful, which kept it on the road in America and Europe for much of the year. Front man and songwriting master Kevn Kinney told ArtsATL earlier this year that the new album has his most self-confrontational songs.
New Year’s Eve at Eddie’s Attic has become a tradition for Decatur blues/folk/rocker Michelle Malone. Celebrate the new year with Malone’s blend of folk, sizzling slide guitar and Stones-flavored rock, all driven by one of the best female guitarists in the world. Malone told ArtsATL in 2018 that Eddie’s is like her home away from home, with her roots there going back to the days she was an Indigo Girls protégé. Malone performs two shows New Year’s Eve, one at 7:30 p.m. and the other at 10 p.m.
Widespread Panic grew out of humble Athens roots into the most famed jam band in the world, and it returns to the Fox Theatre for a three-night stand December 29–31. Featuring Atlanta’s Jimmy Herring on lead guitar and Duane Trucks on drums, the band will likely perform all three shows without repeating more than a couple of songs, making each concert its own experience.
