As an independent Georgian, I spent a great deal of my time last weekend at the Independent Georgia Music Art Film festival in East Atlanta. Bars that I didn't even know were venues, such as the basement of the Gravity Pub, were commandeered for this great showcase of local talent -- all conveniently within walking distance of my home. My personal highlights included Friday's early set at The Earl by the Ed Kemper Trio.
Tastefully taking its name from a serial killer, the trio provided a thrilling and brutal industrial assault. When I say industrial, I don't mean the music genre -- I mean brutal and efficient. Although they didn't actually roll, they certainly rocked.
