The best underground music venues have been revealed. Unearthed, if you will.
You voted for the best spot. There is a winner, as there must be, but the results are divided. That’s a great sign for Atlanta’s music scene.
Terminal West came in first with 19 percent of the vote. The West Midtown venue has been open since 2012 and welcomes all kinds of musical acts. A high-rise with million-dollar condoswas announced for the area recently as well.
The Earl is a busy restaurant and lounge that took 13 percent of the vote and second place. Some of their upcoming shows include Some Kind of Nightmare and All the Saints.
Masquerade took third. The longtime music venue has, after moving to a new location, signed a 10-year lease. The AJC has photos of the old location over the years, all the way back to its opening in 1989.
Other locations included in the poll were Eddie’s Attic, Red Clay Music Foundry, Variety Playhouse, Center Stage/Vinyl/The Loft, Dixie Tavern, Matilda’s at The Porch, Aisle 5 and Earl and Rachel Smith Strand Theatre.
If big shows are more your speed, Shaky Knees recently announced their 2019 lineup.
