Every Friday someone asks me, “what’s happ’nin’ this weekend??”  This will be the place for you to find out.  If you have an event you’d like to submit to be featured, email me with the subject “Event Submission.”  I’ll feature it, along with other events happening within the same time frame. If it’s particularly dope, I’ll feature a more detailed write-up of your event.

(Right now, most events featured will be in Atlanta, since that’s my base.  I’m open to events country and world-wide though!)

It’s an unspoken truth that only the baddest rock with Beyoncé.  Love her or hate her, Beyoncé is a dynamo who, seemingly, only surrounds herself with performers of the same ilk.  So it’s absolutely no surprise that Atlanta’s own Divinity Roxx would be chosen to share the stage in the pop diva’s all-female band.  Bassist Divinity has shown up and showed out all over the world, mesmerizing audiences with funky basslines and crisps snaps.  She has served as the musical director for “The Beyoncé Experience” and “I Am…World” tours, which further solidifies Divinity’s talents, dedication and musicianship.


Last week, I witnessed soul on ice.  Nicolay (producer and 1/2 of The Foreign Exchange) and jazz trio The Hot At Nights put on a phenomenally cool show at the Apache Cafe.  The four piece band, Chris Boerner on guitar, Matt Douglas on sax, Nick Baglio on drums and Nicolay on keyboard, kept the crowd moving and grooving the whole way through.  With their recent release, Shibuya Session EP, Nicolay and The Hot At Nights have been touring the east coast, mesmerizing the masses.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience.  It was such a pleasure watching and listening to artists that truly enjoy their craft.  The passion of the music was so authentic, you could feel it emanating through the room.  If you ever get a chance to check the collaboration out, don’t even think about hesitating.

Above, there’s footage of the band performing two track’s from The Foreign Exchange’s Authenticity, “Eyes to the Sky” and “All Roads.”
