Singer, songwriter, guitarist, and Rose Hotel frontwoman Jordan Reynolds recently announced that her debut full-length, I Will Only Come When It’s A Yes, is set to be released May 31.

The new album arrives on the heels of Rose Hotel’s 2017 EP, Always A Good Reason, and 2018’s Conversations (1-4) EP. It's also Jordan's first proper vinyl offering.

For this latest batch of songs, members of fellow Atlanta acts Material Girls, Shepherds, Karaoke, Neighbor Lady, and Palm Sunday appear as Jordan's backing band, bolstering a full-bodied step up from the lo-fi home recordings of Rose Hotel’s early offerings. John Restivo plays drums, Vinny Restivo plays bass, and Tyler Jundt plays synth and trumpet. Tymb Gratz and Jack Blauvelt also play guitar throughout the album.

In anticipation of the new album's arrival, Rose Hotel has released a video for the song “10 K.” It's the opening number from I Will Only Come When It's A Yes. The video is directed by Reynolds and features cinematography and editing by Jayme Powell. With lyrics such as, “Nearly old enough but too young to understand / Time isn’t slowing down and I see wrinkles in my hands,” the song is a love letter to Atlanta and a parting shot of her former hometown, Bowling Green, Kentucky. Every lingering note renders the amber vibe of fall in both of these Southern cities in autumnal hues of nostalgia and melancholy; like an old home movie.

“‘10 K’ is sort of a thesis for the album in that it’s impossible to know what will happen in your life,” Reynolds says. “Moving from Bowling Green to Atlanta was a big adjustment for me, and I wrote most of this record either right before or right after I moved. I was in a specific moment of self-examination that really informed my writing at the time,” she adds. “Here, I especially feel the insecurities of not knowing what the future has in store. I’m reminiscing about the past, but I also know that making choices and taking risks — challenging myself — can be beautiful, and is absolutely necessary for growth.”

Rose Hotel plays the I Will Only Come When It's A Yes LP release show on Friday, May 31, at 529. With Chick Wallace, Palm Sunday, and Sunset Pig. $8-$10. 9 p.m. 529 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-228-6769. www.529atlanta.com."

  string(5730) "Two people died, and two people were injured, as the result of a shooting at a show at the Masquerade on Nov. 12. The headliner for the show was Los Angeles-based hip-hop artist Cousin Stizz. This is a hip-hop column, but this week I'm focusing less on the musical genre and more on something that has affected all music fans, from country to pop to rap.

Monday night, as I prepared to attend a concert, I checked my phone for an update regarding another local show that ended in tragedy less than 24 hours earlier. I usually get jittery before heading out to a show out of pure excitement for the music. This time my jitters were a result of paranoia. I watched as people were searched before being allowed to enter the Tabernacle, silently judging whether or not I felt security was being thorough enough."I'm just making sure you don't have any guns or knives," a woman said, grabbing at my bag and using her flashlight to poke around inside. I assured her I did not and she confirmed as much.

It's unclear how someone was able to get a gun inside of the Masquerade ahead of Sunday night's shooting.

An ABC News reporter posed the question to the venue's talent buyer and vice president, Greg Green, but he didn't get an answer.

"I don't have anything to say other than it's an ongoing police investigation," Green said. "Thank you for the call."

Over the years, security has long held a considerable presence at the long-standing Atlanta music venue that has hosted shows by everyone from Nirvana to Method Man. There's always a thick complement of beefy dudes wearing Masquerade security shirts at every show. If a fight breaks out in the pit, they shut it down within seconds every time. But now that guns have taken the spotlight as America's favorite fetish item once again and it seems that everyone is armed now uncertainty permeates any large social gathering.

Even when it was announced a few days later that Jonathan Bautista, 23, was charged with two counts of murder over the shooting, there are still no answers.

On Monday night, less than 24 hours later, I was attending an anniversary concert for indie-pop-turned-mainstream-pop artists Tegan & Sara in celebration of their album, The Con. The album, a cult favorite of sorts, was popular 10 years ago among angsty teenagers and twenty-somethings. The twin sisters have become queer icons, and earlier this year they launched a charity that aims to support and mentor LGBTQ girls and women. Proceeds from the ticket sales during this tour will be donated to the Tegan and Sara Foundation. This was an emotional, sentimental show that was supporting a good cause, but I couldn't stop thinking of the ways in which someone might be inclined to sully the experience.

Such is the life of a music fan in 2017, or any human being who dares to venture outside of their home, for that matter.

When one of Tegan & Sara's band members reminisced about playing at the Masquerade in the past it was clear he hadn't heard the news about this week's shooting. There are countless shows a week in Atlanta, held at various venues with varying degrees of security. The number of violent deaths that have occurred at live shows across the country in the past few years are statistically uncommon. But they're terrifying and thus they feed my anxiety. One life lost at a show is one life too many.What happened at the Masquerade seemingly followed a confrontation between fans. In 2016, a T.I. concert in New York ended with one person dead following a shooting backstage. And then there are the terror attacks such as the 2015 mass shooting at Paris' Bataclan concert hall while the Eagles of Death Metal performed, a bombing following Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester earlier this year, and, most recently, the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas.There have been many debates about what could (or couldn't) be done to prevent mass shootings such as the one that occurred at the country music festival in Las Vegas in October, including enacting stricter gun laws. Country singers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw recently told Billboard they believe it's up to the NRA and our government to enact "common sense" gun laws in hopes of preventing future mass shootings from occurring. While stricter gun laws likely wouldn't have prevented many of the attacks listed above, it is certainly a conversation we should be having. We also should be discussing music venue security, too. Music fans should be focused on whether or not their favorite artist is going to bring out a special guest or sing their favorite song, not on the possibility that they might not make it out of the venue alive.

We should be having these discussions loudly, and, there's no better time to discuss this than right after a tragedy has occurred.

Atlanta rappers J.I.D and EARTHGANG play Vinyl Nov. 21. It's the final show on their Never Had Sh!t tour.

6lack's first show at the Tabernacle has already sold out, but the Atlanta artist has a second show on Nov. 26 with breakout R&B singer Sabrina Claudio serving as the opening act.

Lil Uzi Vert performs hits from his mixtapes and new debut album Luv Is Rage 2 at the Tabernacle on Nov. 28.

Watch as spoken word artists and rappers compete in a friendly battle against one another during Poetry vs. Hip-Hop. Anthony Hamilton's backup singers, the Hamiltones will also perform.

In her spare time, she loves to eat lemon pepper wings and debate the validity of your favorite artists."

The headliner for the show was Los Angeles-based hip-hop artist Cousin Stizz. This is a hip-hop column, but this week I'm focusing less on the musical genre and more on something that has affected all music fans, from country to pop to rap.

Monday night, as I prepared to attend a concert, I checked my phone for an update regarding another local show that ended in tragedy less than 24 hours earlier. I usually get jittery before heading out to a show out of pure excitement for the music. This time my jitters were a result of paranoia. I watched as people were searched before being allowed to enter the Tabernacle, silently judging whether or not I felt security was being thorough enough."I'm just making sure you don't have any guns or knives," a woman said, grabbing at my bag and using her flashlight to poke around inside. I assured her I did not and she confirmed as much.

It's unclear how someone was able to get a gun inside of the Masquerade ahead of Sunday night's shooting.

An ABC News reporter posed the question to the venue's talent buyer and vice president, Greg Green, but he didn't get an answer.

"I don't have anything to say other than it's an ongoing police investigation," Green said. "Thank you for the call."

Over the years, security has long held a considerable presence at the long-standing Atlanta music venue that has hosted shows by everyone from Nirvana to Method Man. There's always a thick complement of beefy dudes wearing Masquerade security shirts at every show. If a fight breaks out in the pit, they shut it down within seconds every time. But now that guns have taken the spotlight as America's favorite fetish item once again and it seems that everyone is armed now uncertainty permeates any large social gathering.

Even when it was announced a few days later that Jonathan Bautista, 23, was charged with two counts of murder over the shooting, there are still no answers.

On Monday night, less than 24 hours later, I was attending an anniversary concert for indie-pop-turned-mainstream-pop artists Tegan & Sara in celebration of their album, The Con. The album, a cult favorite of sorts, was popular 10 years ago among angsty teenagers and twenty-somethings. The twin sisters have become queer icons, and earlier this year they launched a charity that aims to support and mentor LGBTQ girls and women. Proceeds from the ticket sales during this tour will be donated to the Tegan and Sara Foundation. This was an emotional, sentimental show that was supporting a good cause, but I couldn't stop thinking of the ways in which someone might be inclined to sully the experience.

Such is the life of a music fan in 2017, or any human being who dares to venture outside of their home, for that matter.

When one of Tegan & Sara's band members reminisced about playing at the Masquerade in the past it was clear he hadn't heard the news about this week's shooting. There are countless shows a week in Atlanta, held at various venues with varying degrees of security. The number of violent deaths that have occurred at live shows across the country in the past few years are statistically uncommon. But they're terrifying and thus they feed my anxiety. One life lost at a show is one life too many.What happened at the Masquerade seemingly followed a confrontation between fans. In 2016, a T.I. concert in New York ended with one person dead following a shooting backstage. And then there are the terror attacks such as the 2015 mass shooting at Paris' Bataclan concert hall while the Eagles of Death Metal performed, a bombing following Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester earlier this year, and, most recently, the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas.There have been many debates about what could (or couldn't) be done to prevent mass shootings such as the one that occurred at the country music festival in Las Vegas in October, including enacting stricter gun laws. Country singers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw recently told Billboard they believe it's up to the NRA and our government to enact "common sense" gun laws in hopes of preventing future mass shootings from occurring. While stricter gun laws likely wouldn't have prevented many of the attacks listed above, it is certainly a conversation we should be having. We also should be discussing music venue security, too. Music fans should be focused on whether or not their favorite artist is going to bring out a special guest or sing their favorite song, not on the possibility that they might not make it out of the venue alive.

We should be having these discussions loudly, and, there's no better time to discuss this than right after a tragedy has occurred.

Atlanta rappers J.I.D and EARTHGANG play Vinyl Nov. 21. It's the final show on their Never Had Sh!t tour.

6lack's first show at the Tabernacle has already sold out, but the Atlanta artist has a second show on Nov. 26 with breakout R&B singer Sabrina Claudio serving as the opening act.

Lil Uzi Vert performs hits from his mixtapes and new debut album Luv Is Rage 2 at the Tabernacle on Nov. 28.

Watch as spoken word artists and rappers compete in a friendly battle against one another during Poetry vs. Hip-Hop. Anthony Hamilton's backup singers, the Hamiltones will also perform.

In a press conference on Thurs., Jan, 5, Peter Conlon, president of Live Nation Atlanta, and Atlanta Braves President, Business Derek Schiller announced that Billy Joel will perform the first concert at SunTrust Park, the new home to the Atlanta Braves. The show is billed as the Piano Man’s first appearance in Atlanta since making a solo appearance in 2015, and is set for Fri., April 28, 2017.

“Atlanta has had an ongoing love affair with Billy Joel beginning with his performances at the Electric Ballroom, Great Southeast Music Hall, and on to his sold-out performances at the Omni and Philips Arena,” Conlon said in a press release. “There is nobody hotter in music than Billy Joel.”

 Either way, booking Billy Joel for the Cobb Country stadium’s first show is a safe bet. Songs such as “We Didn't Start the Fire,” “Uptown Girl,” and “It's Still Rock 'n' Roll To Me” are bound to bring a wholly different experience from what other Atlanta sports franchises have recently hosted. The Hawks brought Gucci Man and T.I. to the court in 2016. But hey, it's Cobb, and you've gotta know your audience.

This is a stand-alone performance. Opening acts will be announced soon.

Tickets for the show range from $54.50 to $104.50, and $139.50, and go on sale to the general public on Fri., Jan. 13 at 10 a.m. via Ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.

Is it because they're ungodly expensive, and you're flat broke? Yeah, thought so. A couple weeks ago, 50 Cent cancelled his Tabernacle gig. No explanation was given, although the oft-cited phrase "poor ticket sales" was given as the possible culprit. Then R&B dude Maxwell's show at Philips Arena tour was nixed, maybe because he hated Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, but also maybe because no one was willing to shell out a hundred bucks for a ticket?

?
Now the third and probably not final mystery in the Case of the Cancelled Concerts: the Buzz cites a "rock-solid local source" who reports that Rihanna's upcoming Philips concert might be in jeopardy, as well. One show on her upcoming tour has already been cancelled, and Atlanta might be next.

What gives, you ask?"

    With Gucci Mane once again headed back to jail, his new song, "My Own Worst Enemy," feels particularly apropos. Over a melancholy synth beat from Drumma Boy, Gucci touches on his near-deadly beef with Young Jeezy, his conversations with the currently incarcerated T.I., and his own frequent brushes with the law: "Me, Jeezy and T.I. share one thing in common/All are poets/Role models to young people/Though at times man we still ignore it."-

    On Nov. 12, Gucci (née Radric Davis) was sentenced to 12 months behind bars for violating his probation and was removed from a Fulton County courtroom in handcuffs. He is expected to serve about half of that time. A judge ruled that he had not completed community service requirements, that he failed drug tests and that he did not secure permission to travel. The case dates back to a 2005 conviction for attacking a club promoter, and this is the second time he has failed to meet the terms of his probation – the first time last year, sent him to jail for seven months.-

    The setback seems to come at a bad time for him. The Atlanta-bred rapper is more popular than ever, and his highly anticipated new album, The State vs. Radric Davis, is due Dec. 8. But it has already caused chaos with fans and concert promoters around the country. His past incarceration and probation terms have led to the cancellation of about a dozen shows this year. His absences have left promoters squabbling with his manager and booking agent - and threatening to file lawsuits.-

    But beyond the allegations lies the allegory. If Gucci is the frog prince of Atlanta trap-rap, impatiently waiting as he has for the better half of a decade to take his turn on the throne, he doesn't need anything else to stunt his growth. Despite collaborating in 2009 with the likes of Mariah Carey, Black Eyed Peas, Mario and Usher – who's featured in the current single "Spotlight" from his upcoming album – Gucci's transition from 'hood star to pop star remains fraught with hiccups. It's something the industry may have to come to terms with, warts and all.-

    With Gucci Mane once again headed back to jail, his new song, "My Own Worst Enemy," feels particularly apropos. Over a melancholy synth beat from Drumma Boy, Gucci touches on his near-deadly beef with Young Jeezy, his conversations with the currently incarcerated T.I., and his own frequent brushes with the law: "Me, Jeezy and T.I. share one thing in common/All are poets/Role models to young people/Though at times man we still ignore it."-

    On Nov. 12, Gucci (née Radric Davis) was sentenced to 12 months behind bars for violating his probation and was removed from a Fulton County courtroom in handcuffs. He is expected to serve about half of that time. A judge ruled that he had not completed community service requirements, that he failed drug tests and that he did not secure permission to travel. The case dates back to a 2005 conviction for attacking a club promoter, and this is the second time he has failed to meet the terms of his probation – the first time last year, sent him to jail for seven months.-

    The setback seems to come at a bad time for him. The Atlanta-bred rapper is more popular than ever, and his highly anticipated new album, The State vs. Radric Davis, is due Dec. 8. But it has already caused chaos with fans and concert promoters around the country. His past incarceration and probation terms have led to the cancellation of about a dozen shows this year. His absences have left promoters squabbling with his manager and booking agent - and threatening to file lawsuits.-

    But beyond the allegations lies the allegory. If Gucci is the frog prince of Atlanta trap-rap, impatiently waiting as he has for the better half of a decade to take his turn on the throne, he doesn't need anything else to stunt his growth. Despite collaborating in 2009 with the likes of Mariah Carey, Black Eyed Peas, Mario and Usher – who's featured in the current single "Spotlight" from his upcoming album – Gucci's transition from 'hood star to pop star remains fraught with hiccups. It's something the industry may have to come to terms with, warts and all.-

Best of Atlanta Concerts


Best Concert Venue
16 ROCK OF AGES National Tour   Jeremy Daniel, 2018
The best art exhibit in a gallery in Atlanta.

Best Concert of the Past Year
DAVID BYRNE 04

 

Atlanta has seen its share of great concerts in the past as evidence by the list below. David Byrne rolled into town for the 2018 Shaky Knees festival for the weekend May 3-5th and smoked it.


Best Parking at a Concert Venue
21a31 Terminal West Magnum
As part of the King Plow Arts Center, Terminal West has become the Westside’s premier live music venue, giving equal stage time to hip-hop, indie rock, EDM, pop music, and singer-songwriter fare. With its location, it is pretty easy to get in and out of the show without driving around and around seeking a spot.

Best Concert Venue Food
21a31 Terminal West Magnum
With our 2018 issue, we weighed in on the best concert venue food. The winner, Terminal West, takes pride in its food. Check out the lunch and dinner menu at the venue’s Stationside restaurant next door for plenty of fodder for vegetarians and carnivores alike.

Best Outdoor Music Venue for Concerts
DSC3170
The relatively roomy, food friendly natural amphitheater at Chastain feels like a walk in the park ... which it sort of is. Of course if it rains like it did for the majority of the Brian Wilson show, everybody gets wet, and those hard metal seats make life, errr, challenging during lightening storms. But on those nights when the moon is out, the music, not to mention the wine, is flowing, and the candles are flickering, Chastain earns its reputation as the quintessential open-air Atlanta summer concert venue.
