Shathouse Rats Interview

This is a reprint from Beatlanta, thanks Adam and Chris!

Shathouse Rats were just some down to earth guys, drinkers. They came across as modest toward their music and talent, but eager to let folks know what they’re up to right now. I say these guys have something going for themselves. It might not be for some, but for me it was hard to place them in the same arena as any bands I know in Atlanta right now. That makes them all the more appealing. They mix several genres from punk to blues to rock and attitude. They have an old school jail rock feel to them.

In the interview we talk about the Picaflor show on March 18th, the band’s upcoming release and tour plans as well as their music, style and aspirations.

Shathouse Rats will be performing at Picaflor this Friday with Qurious and Imagination Head. For more details about the band, click here

Attention System @ Dragon Con 9.3.2010

There has been a lot of publicity about Dragon Con these past couple weeks, but surprisingly there is very little coverage about one of the main entertainment acts for that week. Local electro/darkwave act Attention System rocked out Dragon Con and here’s the proof.

Worth Checking Out – Last Relapse

Someone sent me a link to a new band called Last Relapse. They’re not bad, they produce your typical post-punk/alternative rock sounds. If you’re a fan of Faraquet’s poppier material, you might like this.

Last Relapse’s new album is called Machine and a portion of it can be streamed here
