Acadia 64

Acadia Cafe : 8:00 p.m. - 12:30 a.m. every Tue.

So, trivia is not your strength, bingo takes too much concentration, and poetry slams are just too much work. What about video games?

Black Lips

Turf Club : 7:30 p.m. April 27

Atlanta's Black Lips built their punkish reputation on dirty garage rock streaked with Southern-fried psychedelia, blues, and remnants of '60s pop, plus riotous live shows speckled with incorrigible antics.

Hot Dish Happy Hour

Grumpy's Bar & Grill : 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. every Wed.

Clubhouse Jager : 10:00 p.m. every Wed. from May 7 until May 21

"Retro" is a tricky niche to slot a dance night into. Usually you've got to find yourself an era and a genre, hew towards the hits, and maybe garnish it with an outsized wink, a double-pistol-point and a smirking acknowledgement that you think the past is, well, kinda goofy. But Transmission... More >>
