He’s been described as “an earthier, cleverer Ben Harper.” He’s an Atlanta native, one of the founders of ATL Collective and a singer songwriter. In this episode we sit down to talk to Micah Dalton about his music, songwriting, covers and collaboration, living and loving Atlanta, another reason to get on twitter, and what’s coming next. Oh and listen for the Mark Twain reference!

In our Sweet Auburn Market podcast we took you to Grindhouse Killer Burgers. Now they have another location on Piedmont Rd, right across from Fat Matt’s. It’s like the Market but a whole restaurant, not just a lunch counter. They project movies here, too, and the food is still great!
So, the last Harry Potter movie just came out. We wanted to do something.
First, we tried to make some homemade butter beer.
Then we made some wands.
And tried our hands at casting some spells.
He didn’t care for it.
So we went the traditional route and just made another podcast, or dare we call it a Pottercast? In this timely episode we bring you some thoughtful opinions from long-time fans, chats with folks in line for the last film, discussions about costumes for the showings, and some fun conversation among friends.

*No horcruxes were harmed in the making of this podcast.
Plenty of people in this podcast have their own blogs:
Do you ever think about the vinyl days of music? Do you reminisce about when people would listen to an album all the way through, A side, then B side? If so, you’re not alone. Every month a bunch of Atlanta musicians get together at Eddie’s Attic and cover an entire classic album, putting their own special spin on it, of course. It’s a rotating cast of musicians, interesting in putting on a great show built around classic music.
If you know the album, it’s a fresh look at it. If you don’t, it’s a unique introduction. Either way, you’re going to hear some local talent and get exposure to a complete classic album.
They’ve done the Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen, the Velvet Underground and TONIGHT, they are doing Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys. The show starts at 8pm and doors open at 7 at Eddie’s Attic. We will be there and you should seriously consider attending yourself.
On Wednesday’s show we talk to some people with ATL Collective. If you don’t know, they get together once a month and cover an entire classic album, A side to B side. Our air date will coincide with their next show, “Pet Sounds” by the Beach Boys. Lucky you!
In this very special episode, Elizabeth has a one-on-one with her sister Rebecca, whom you may know as The Clothes Horse. Rebecca is a full-time fashion blogger based in Virginia, but her blogging has taken her to New York Fashion Week and all over the world. She tweets @aclotheshorse and blogs on tumblr as well.
You know what she looks like, but what does she sound like?
Online personas, how one might make a living blogging, the blogging community (and drama within the blogging community), writing for ones audience versus writing for oneself, the online love letter, Balzac, and why you should wear what you want (even if it’s not really flattering).
We’d be willing to bet you have no prior experience with FAV, that’s “flute and video.” That’s too bad. But you can remedy the situation because July 6-9 there are three, free public concerts providing the experience.
Basically, it’s the animation of Amber Boardman with the live flute playing of Jessica Peek Sherwood. And it’s unlike what you’ve seen elsewhere.
FAV will be at
Atlantic Station, Wednesday July 6, 9pm
Decatur, City Plaza, Thursday July 7, 9pm
Virginia Highlands, Parking lot 21, Saturday July 9, 9pm
The 4th of July is Elizabeth’s favorite holiday. Why? Fireworks, good food, summer, outdoor activities, and no requirements for dressing up or gifting obligations. Seriously, what else can compete? Nothing goes better with BBQ.
Therefore, as a special treat, we have a surprise short podcast, mostly poetry with some readings, music, and television quotes, all evoking the holiday and celebrating summer itself. Enjoy! Our regular post will be up on Wednesday.
For the 4th, listen or download here. Otherwise, look it up on itunes.
