Venues Of Note


Mint Gallery

Mint Gallery is a venue that allows you to put on/design your show. It is perfect for intimate performances, and the amazing artwork always provides a gorgeous backdrop for your music. Although it is cradled in a neighborhood and it may sometimes be difficult to perform outside because of the high volume at which local bands love to play, this place can house fantastic shows.


529 is a nice, quaint, little venue that houses amazingly raucous shows. If you’re looking to hear shrieking experimental noise pop, shreddingly wonderful progressive metal or energetic power-pop punk, then this is the venue for you. The venue’s sound is pretty good, and their free Monday shows are normally filled with great musicians from our diverse scene. A night at 529 is promised to be super interesting!

The Earl is a venue with fantastic sound and pretty awesome food in East Atlanta Village. They normally allow bands to have a discounted meal before their performance. Their backstage area is pretty righteous as well. On any given night, you may see an emerging local band or the likes of established indie artists such as St. Vincent, Benji Hughes or Destroyer.
