What You'll Get
Music can soothe one’s fiery temper, propel a rousing dance, or distract a roommate long enough so you can sell his television at a pawnshop. Experience the stunning power of sound with today’s deal: for $12, you get one general-admission ticket to see Superchunk, The Dodos, and Times New Viking at the Buckhead Theatre on Thursday, September 8, at 7 p.m. (a $19 value before fees, or up to a $25.20 value online, including all Ticketmaster fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.
Superchunk, the beloved forefathers of indie rock whose influence persists to this day, leads a triple-charged bill of celebrated bands during a heart-pounding and brain-pleasing night of onstage ax shredding. After fleecing the 1990s with a discography of propulsive DIY anthems that hit like a shovel, Superchunk hits the road in support of its latest album, the critically hailed Majesty Shredding. Bounding on stage like caffeinated, post-nap preschoolers, Superchunk shows off a blend of frenetic punk-pop and pubescent vocals that jump-starts grateful audiences like sonic defibrillators. Joining the evening’s headlining melody-makers, the ambidextrous duo of The Dodos crafts gripping tunes with plickety guitars and kinetically charged yet seductively paced drums that pound like mallets glued to a drunk hummingbird’s wings. Lo-fi adventurers Times New Viking pursue antiquated aesthetics with fuzzy ditties recorded on VHS tapes and stringed-together soup cans.
