Things to do in and around Atlanta for Monday, Sept. 17


The Baby Braves are on a tear toward a delightfully unexpected (this early, anyway) divisional title. Come cheer them on for the first of three important home games against the Cards, perennial powers who are in the thick of the hunt for a Wild Card playoff berth. And since Mondays are “SunTrust Financial Confidence Night(s),” there’ll be discounts at select concession stands and the chance to get upgrades or discounts on some seats. 7:30 p.m. $8-$88. SunTrust Park, 755 Battery Ave., S.E. Atlanta.


A fatal car accident leads a number of disparate souls to cross paths and connect around a dying, glowing baby. Sound intriguing? That’s not all, as the theater goes on to describe the play as “folk tales and folklore weav(ing) throughout this magical story of sad endings, strange beginnings and the unlikely people that get you from one place to the next.” 8 p.m. $5 (Industry Night PWYC price). Weird Sisters Theatre Project at the 7 Stages Back Stage Theatre, 1105 Euclid Ave. NE, Atlanta.


AJC music critic called it back in May when she broke the news that this “unlikely duo” would be headed here to play the Tabernacle this fall. The tour is in conjunction with their “island-flavored collaboration” of the same name. “The pair intends to play selections from the new album, as well as collaborate on each other’s hits, such as ‘Every Breath You Take,’ ‘Englishman in New York,’ ‘Mr. Boombastic’ and ‘It Wasn’t Me,’” Ruggieri reported. 8 p.m. $80.50-$130.50. Tabernacle, 152 Luckie St., Atlanta. 1-800-745-3000,
