Since the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra performed his fanfare “May Cause Dizziness” in 2011, the group has commissioned and premiered five more of Kurth's melodic, polyphonic, and intensely rhythmic works. “Robert Spano has opened doors and trusted me and championed me,” Kurth said.
Yacht Rock

Confessions of a Cover Band: Yacht Rock Revue croons the hits you love to hate

Yacht Rock Revue is hard to define—they're part fandom, part joke, part self-promotion, and each element is infused with irony.

Metalsome

At a Virginia-Highland dive bar, Metalsome karaoke turns everyone into a headbanger

You don't need to be a professional singer to grab the microphone for hard-rock, live-band karaoke with Metalsome at the 10 High, the small club tucked beneath Dark Horse Tavern. A lot of the 20- and 30-somethings who join in are defiantly tone-deaf and rhythmically deficient (perhaps thanks to a PBR or three).

U2

U2 in Atlanta: An oral history of the band and the city’s shared journey

U2’s intersections with Atlanta over the years have gone beyond the city as a requisite tour stop.
