Dispatch in Atlanta This Week

Break out your tie-dye t-shirt, because jam band Dispatch will be in Atlanta next week, playing at the Tabernacle on Oct. 12.

After an agonizingly long eight-year hiatus, Dispatch is currently on tour after the August release of “Circles Around the Sun,” the band’s fifth studio album.

Christmas Album From Lady Antebellum

Country band Lady Antebellum, which has two Georgia-born members, is releasing a Christmas album, entitled “On This Winter’s Night” and set to be released Oct. 22.

The album will feature classics like “Silver Bells,” “A Holly Jolly Christmas,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” and “Silent Night.”

According to an interview with The Boot, the band brought in lights, fake trees and decorations to get in the holiday spirit while recording the album this summer.

Lady Antebellum recently wrapped a world tour with a sold-out show at the Sydney Opera House in Australia.

Big Boi Added to A3C Lineup

We just reported on the lineup additions at the A3C Hip Hop Festival set to take place this Thursday-Sunday around Atlanta, but a huge name just appeared on the bill.

Big Boi will perform as part of the BET Music Matters Series during the fest. The event will also reunite Big Boi and the rest of the Dungeon Family for a performance.

You can still get tickets here.

Check It! Pick of the Week

Silversun Pickups, the alt-rock band known for its psychedelic-shoegaze sound featuring distorted guitars, will be at the Tabernacle on Tuesday as part of its North American tour.

Openers are Cloud Nothings, an indie-rock band out of Ohio, and Atlas Genius from Australia, starting at 7 p.m.
