The first round of the Sweetwater Showdown wrapped up last Friday with Eyes of Torment coming away with the final second round slot… congrats guys!
Sweetwater is here for your Labor Day Weekend entertainment, starting with a special “no cover charge” Friday the 2nd, featuring killer karaoke hosted by yours truly, Mr. Smokey. I’ll still be holding it down for the regular Tuesday and Wednesday nights crew, but I would love to see some both old and new faces for this rare, first-ever weekend show. Saturday night, Sweetwater LIVE continues with jam/jazz-based openers Summer More Than Others, followed by the psychedelic grooves of Gnomonaut and hard/punk rockers Armazilla.
Look out for big shows in the coming weeks, including a huge reunion night of TWO former Sweetwater Showdown champions… 2006 SSX winners Code Atom and SSIII 2009 winners Dedset , plus special guest Echoes End , one of Atlanta’s best modern rock bands. It’s going down Saturday, September 10th, so come see Sweetwater legends of the past and present in one night!
After that, it’s on to September 17th, with the first of three semi-final 2011 Showdown nights. Check the Sweetwater Showdown schedule for more details and band links. See you soon!
