Find your new favorite band at one of Atlanta’s indie venues


Sure, you can see the latest pop sensation at Philips Arena or catch a jam band at Chastain, but you might find the next big thing at these smaller venues. From underground hip-hop to hillbilly rock and local favorites like the Coathangers, East Atlanta Village dive the Earl has one of the most intimate stages. Eddie’s Attic is still a good spot to grab a craft beer and hear the latest folk, country, or bluegrass favorite. Local punk bands often stop at Little Five Points dive Star Bar. And if you really want to see a band no one else has, Grant Park’s Matt Arnett hosts shows out of his own home (nicknamed Grocery on Home) that you can only get into if you RSVP on Facebook.
