OMF(amous)G - Celebrity Sighting in ATL

Attn: ATLANTA! If you happen to see a pretty pregnant woman walking around Atlanta in this heat today you might think a couple of things: #1- Is this person insane to be walking around in 106 degree weather while pregnant? #2- Why would this person have all these people around them? #3-Wait.....is that Reese Witherspoon?!
Yes, it is! Welcome to Atlanta, Reese! 
She will be here for the next two weeks filming "Devil's Knot: The True Story of the West Memphis Three" in Cartersville, GA. It will be filming at Bartow County Courthouse. The courthouse is located at 135 West Cherokee Avenue, Cartersville 30120 (via OLV). The movie also stars Colin Firth. IMDB describes the plot as "the savage murders of three young children sparks a controversial trial of three teenagers accused of killing the kids as part of a satanic ritual."

OM(usic)FG - Black Star




Just the other day, I was complaining to someone that I miss REAL hip-hop and rap. None of the current artists were impressing me, and I honestly felt like it was a bunch of wannabes just trying to make a quick buck.  They only rapped about hos and sh**t, and that doesn't impress me.  What happened to the real lyricists like Tupac, Dr. Dre (please come back), etc.??

THEN, I discovered Black Star. I'm upset I hadn't known about them sooner.  Black Star is made up of 2 hip hop greats, Talib Kweli and Mos Def (now Yasiin Bey).  The duo originally came about in the early 1990s from the underground alternative rap movement.  The helped shape the genre and even released a 1998 album called "Mos Def & Talib Kweli are Black Star."  Each artist went on to have successful solo careers, and gained much recognition.  A second Black Star alubm had been rumored for years, and finally on October 5, 2011, they performed their new single "Fix Up" on the Colbert Report.

Black Star recently played Bonaroo, and I'm completely jealous of anyone who was able to witness this.  Hopefully a new album will follow. These guys know what they're doing.  Talib and Yasiin, keep on keepin' on. I love it.

The Daniels Brothers Band, GWC, and Crane this Saturday!



This Saturday night (June 30) at Sweetwater Live in Duluth, the biggest party of the summer is about to go down.  What do you get when you mix 3 of Atlanta's favorite local bands? A big freakin' throwdown! The Daniels Brothers BandCrane are all on the line up and I cannot wait!

The Daniels Brothers Band will be releasing their highly anticipated EP at this show, and in case you missed them on Armada FM yesterday, just be prepared for some blow your mind good music!!  They worked with Atlanta's super star producer Mike Froedge and what they have created is nothing short of genius. The band is super excited to finally release their EP, and it's guaranteed to be a great show. Put on your dancing shoes!  It will be a full band show, and for those of you who haven't seen them with a full band, you're missing out.  They will have 20 free EPs to give out to the first 20 people through the doors, so GET THERE EARLY! After those 20 are gone, EPs are only $5, so grab one while you can! 



GWC always puts on a great live show. Since it's a hometown show for them, their fans will be out in full force! These guys have been a band since they were in high school & have grown so much musically.  GWC was recently nominated for Best Rock Band at the Georgia Music Awards, and the guys really enjoyed that experience.  They have been working on some new material and are excited about hitting the road with their new tunes.We'll surely hear some of these Saturday!








Crane is an Atlanta favorite and they have been touring all over the Southeast. Lead singer Anthony has a soulful voice and the band pulls influences from many different genres such as southern rock, blues, hip hop and funk.  The band is currently working on a new record and will hopefully be releasing songs this summer.








It's an incredible line up and you won't want to miss any of these bands.  The show is guaranteed to rock your face, and it will be packed out!!  Doors at 8:00, $5 for 21+, $10 for 18-20.  Come have a beer or 2 or 3 with me! 


ROCK ON!

OM(ovies)FG - Savages

 Movie goers are in for a treat on July 6th when Oliver Stone's Savages makes its debut to the big screen. It's sure to be an action-packed Mexican drug lord thriller. Via IMDB the plot is simple but intriguing: "Pot growers Ben and Chon face off against the Mexican drug cartel who kidnapped their shared girlfriend." Check out the trailer:
The cast includes some heavy hitters like John Travolta, Salma Hayek, & Benicio Del Toro. Two of the lesser-known main characters are played by Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass) & Taylor Kitsch (of Friday Night Lights & Battleship).
 The person that I am also very excited to see is Blake Lively. Being a huge fan of hers, it's always nice to see her in rougher roles than her everyday appearance as Serena van der Woodsen on the CW's Gossip Girl (I'm thinking back to her rougher role in The Town.) Here is an Access Hollywood interview with Blake and Salma where they talk about how the 2 female characters that they play are actually the strongest characters in the film. This is one sexy way to show girl power:
