Kristen's Concert Picks: Kick off 2011 with January's tunes!

It's 2011, you guys! Ya know, just in case the parties and the glitter and the occasional fireworks didn't clue you in... So, what's the best way to make this year a spectacular one? Tunes, of course! Luckily, Athens has got plenty of 'em for us this January. Feast your ears on these!

Sat, Jan 8: Nate Nelson @ 11 PM @ Farm 255
Nate Nelson's got an amazing voice, and trust me, your ears are craving his sound. Jump back into the living Athens music scene in 2011 with him!

Sat, Jan 8: The Breathlanes @ 9:30 PM @ The Office Lounge
Do you like soft, beautiful music? Well, then, the Breathlanes will treat you right. I've yet to see them live, but I've heard good things.

Wed, Jan 12: Pillage & Plunder @ 9:30 PM @ Caledonia Lounge
Long before the thought of writing a music blog had even entered into my mind, I caught a show with these guys in Atlanta. Playing their first ever set in Athens at the Caledonia, you definitely won't wanna miss this one!

Fri, Jan 14: Groove Tangent @ 9:30 PM @ Caledonia Lounge
Here's a mix of covers and original tunes that's sure to be tons of fun! I really like Groove Tangent, and I can bet you will too.

Sat, Jan 15: Tealvox (CD release) @ 10 PM @ Caledonia Lounge
Everyone I know who gets the chance to see rock band Tealvox raves about them afterwards. Releasing their latest album, these guys are sure to give us a brilliant show.

Wed, Jan 19: Mud Scholar @ 9:30 PM @ Caledonia Lounge
MUD SCHOLAR'S LAST SHOW IN ATHENS! Irreverent, madly disturbing, and undeniably hilarious, you've just gotta be there to see the self-titled king of lyrical-douche-pop off!

Thurs, Jan 20: Doctor Squid & Athens @ 8 PM @ 40 Watt
Nothing's better than two awesome bands in one show! This one's definitely going to be loads of fun!

Fri, Jan 21: Yo Soybean (CD release) @ 10 PM @ Caledonia Lounge
Want some southern rock with hints of folk and pop? Of course you do. Sounds like Yo Soybean's the band for you! Best of all, they're releasing a brand new album at this show as well. Check it out!

Fri, Jan 21: Dead Confederate & Bambara @ 9 PM @ 40 Watt
No. Way. Dead Confederate and Bambara, two of my all-time hardcore favorites, are rockin' together with the band Kuroma, a group that's been on my radar for a while? This is just too cool for words!

Wed, Jan 26: Efren @ 9 PM @ Melting Point
Get down and dirty with Efren's lo fi folk rock as the month winds to an end. Ah, yes. Now that sounds nice.

Moral of the story? Pack up your bags and move to the Caledonia for the bulk of the month of January! Hey, if I could, you know I'd do it in a heartbeat. But really, guys, this month is shaping up to be an undeniably amazing beginning to 2011. As always, comment below if you've heard whispers of a knock-your-socks-off show that I don't have listed here. Also, don't forget to check back for any calendar updates as the month unfolds! Happy listening, you guys!
