Kristen's Concert Picks: Here come the rockin' tunes of May

It looks like it's time to trade in those knee socks for your favorite pair of flip flops. The flowers are in bloom, and the taste of freedom wafts through in the air. May is here, you guys! In celebration of the sunny days of summer, some of our favorite bands are rockin' stages all across Athens this month. Check these shows out!

Sun, May 1: Bambara @ 1 PM @ Melting Point
Kick off the month with
Music Business May Day, an
all-day affair featuring tons of prominent bands with at least one member of each act involved in the MBUS program. Blog favorite BAMBARA will be bringing their rock-filled, ear-ringing brilliance to the stage once more at this show as well. Don't miss it!

Tues, May 3: DIP @ 2 PM @ WUOG
If you're in the mood for some indefinable madness and you're craving some songs with word dip in them, DIP is your band. Their shows are always an experience, that's for sure!

Tues, May 3: The Premonitions @ 10 PM @ Caledonia Lounge
The Premonitions sound just like you'd expect from their name. If you're a fan of dark, cross-genre tunes, you'll wanna catch this show!

Tues, May 3: Matt Daniel @ 10 PM @ Rye Bar
Matt Daniel (formerly of Leading Edge) returns to the stage to give us another taste of his own keyboard and guitar-infused original songs. Enjoy!

Thurs, May 5: The Orkids @ 9 PM @ MAX
If you haven't caught the Orkids yet, you've been missing out for sure! Their upbeat pop tunes will leave you smiling and dancing, I guarantee it. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo at MAX (formerly Max Canada)!

Fri, May 6: Aman Amun @ 9 PM @ New Earth Music Hall
Back for a visit from the NYC, longtime blog favorite Aman Amun is here to give us an introspective and immersive electronic experience. His tunes and displays will completely engage your senses as he opens up for critically acclaimed El Ten Eleven. And since his New Earth shows are always incredible, this is one show you just can't miss!

Fri, May 6: Doctor Squid & Grinnin Bear @ 10 PM @ 40 Watt
Wow, this is quite a lineup! Doctor Squid's joy-inducing pop rock meets the fun, folksy sound of Grinnin Bear at BombsBombsBombs album release show. Too awesome for words!

Sat, May 7: Spring Tigers @ 9:30 PM @ Caledonia Lounge
I caught Spring Tigers at Athfest last year, and I quite enjoyed their electro-pop sound. Check 'em out!

Sat, May 7: Mud Scholar @ 10 PM @ Go Bar
Lyrical douche-pop is Mud Scholar's game, and he excels at it. If you're a fan of the lewd and the crude, this blog favorite is coming straight from New York to give us a hilarious serving of tunes you could never take home to mom. You've got to hear it to believe it!

Fri, May 13: Misfortune500 @ 8 PM @ 40 Watt
Wow, this month is just overflowing with blog favorites! I'm absolutely in love with the dark, rock style of Misfortune500. Seriously, I'm not quite sure how they manage it, but they sound even more amazing every time I see them perform. Also, awesome rockers the Winter Sounds are taking the stage at this show as well, so it's sure to be brilliant!

Fri, May 13: Yo Soybean @ 10 PM @ Caledonia Lounge
Got to love Yo Soybean's folk-infused southern rock sound! Don't miss out on your chance to dance your way through their tunes.

Well, looks like we've got the first half of the month well covered! This is going to be such a party, you guys. Know of another rockin' show not on this list, perhaps one representin' in the ATH during the second half of May? Let the world know about it in the comments! Also, don't hesitate to click the Monthly Concert Picks button regularly to find new shows that we've added to this list as well. My friends, it's time to celebrate!
