Nine Times Blue at Smith’s Olde Bar: Atlanta Room (8:00 p.m.)
Atlanta’s Nine Times Blue (NTB) will be showcasing their power pop music Saturday night as they call the intimate downstairs Atlanta Room their home away from home. The show is the official release party for their newest record, Falling Slowly, which is a collection of what they do best. The album showcases Kirk Waldrop’s singing and songwriting abilities while Greg King, Jeff Nelson and Jason Brewer supply the musical backdrop. The new record is driven by trade mark jangly guitars as NTB delivers old style power pop tunes similar to The Connells, Producers and Gin Blossoms while keeping it fresh and new. In today’s musical environment it is refreshing to their music. Live, the music jumps out of the speakers to assault the listener’s ears in a good way. Downstairs at Smith’s Olde Bar should be rocking.
