Listening to the earnest heartland rock of Bob Seger makes us want to drink PBR. So does THE EARL. We’re not saying Seger and the Earl have much in common — thanks to booking agent Patrick Hill, the mood is more jamming and idiosyncratic Neil Young — but we will say that Seger’smore...
Listening to the earnest heartland rock of Bob Seger makes us want to drink PBR. So does THE EARL. We’re not saying Seger and the Earl have much in common — thanks to booking agent Patrick Hill, the mood is more jamming and idiosyncratic Neil Young — but we will say that Seger’s “Rock and Roll Never Forgets” could be the Earl’s theme song. There’s nowhere else in Atlanta so dedicated to not letting people forget the rawk, showcasing the top tier of local bands alongside nationally acclaimed indie acts. With its junk-store chic, the Earl embodies the garage-band spirit and we raise our tall boys to it. less...

Throughout 2006, there’s been an ongoing debate around the office: Does fried okra and nitrates on a stick make music better? Well, recent trips to THE EARL have confirmed that yes, a little salt of the earth makes for a meatier experience. Not that anyone was concerned about the quality of music at the Earl to begin with. We turn to the Earl not just because we’re hungry in our tummies but also because we’re hungry in our hearts for that prime grade-A local music. less...

The beloved East Atlanta indie music venue and neighborhood bar recently underwent a facelift that more than tripled the size of its hallowed music room. That means bigger crowds, an amped-up sound system, a second bar, and, oh yes, more bathrooms (sorely needed). The change has perfectly positioned 529 as one of the city's premiere small concert venues. Local and touring bands alike flock to play there pretty much every night of the week. As such, music and merriment seep through walls and onto the village streets, inviting regulars and passersby to stop in, grab a drink, and join the rowdy crowd. less...
