Kristen's Concert Picks: October's tunes dance into our ears!

Photo by Page Walker

The leaves are changing again, ushering in the fall season with their golden brown color. The smell of pumpkin spice wafts through the air as the days grow cooler. Ghosts and ghouls reign supreme, hidden amongst the mortals of the world. And the tunes! Oh, the tunes that fill our ears on these dark nights... These are the true delights of the month of October!

Fri, Oct 1: Futurebirds & Gift Horse @ 8 PM @ 40 Watt
Start off the month at the 40 Watt with this lineup of pure rock! The Futurebirds and GiftHorse... Awesome! I can promise you, you'll love it.

Fri, Oct 8: The Whigs & Bambara & Kuroma @ 9 PM @ 40 Watt
And speaking of rock, WOW, what a show this will be! Returning to Athens after touring the country for quite some time, the famous Whigs are back to show us what rock is all about. Joined by Kuroma, a band I've been dying to see for a while, and Bambara, a longtime favorite, this will be a show you just can't miss! You can grab some advance tickets here.

Wed, Oct 13: Ludacris & the Beat Geeks @ 7 PM @ UGA's Legion Field

And even more big names come to grace our stages! Rock out with We Are Scientists at the 'Watt, and while you're at it, take a spin with Twin Tigers too. Get your tickets right now at this link!

Thurs, Oct 21: The Beat Geeks @ Time TBA @ Bad Manor
The Beat Geeks own this month! They're dropping some hip hop dance tunes in honor of Power 100.1's birthday at Bad Manor just a week after they open for Ludacris. This should be wild! Get your tickets here before it's too late!

Tues, Oct 26: Madeline @ 9:30 PM @ Caledonia Lounge
Soft, dark tunes are Madeline's forte. Always worth a listen!

Sat, Oct 30: Reptar @ 10 PM @ New Earth Music Hall
Is it possible for a band to become an Athens legend in less than two years? Well, fun, dance-inducing band Reptar's certainly managed to do it! You just have to celebrate Halloween Eve with these guys!

How exciting! I can't wait to see all of these unbelievable bands! Oh, and if you know of a rockin' show that's not on this list, comment below and tell the world about it. Of course, as always, you can check back here often for updates on even more of the hottest October shows in Athens. Catch ya downtown!
