Meet Balkans

Atlanta Rising, part 2.

As with the previously mentioned Carnivores, Balkans is another ATL band making some (seriously fantastic) noise. They are young, they are brash, and they kinda sorta rock my little world. It's no great stretch of the imagination to see them sharing a stage with The Black Lips at some point in the near future, as they've got the bratty snarls and devil-may-care 'tude down pat. For those of us who enjoy sharply strummed guitars, warbling vocals, and songs that promise heaving dancefloors (see "Oh Dear"), I think you'll be pretty enamored with Balkans in no time flat. I sure am.

I'd like to reiterate the Balkans/Carnivores double-header on Tuesday 7/28: first, catch the hot instore action at Plan 9 (Balkans are on at 6), and then head over to The Triple for what will no doubt be one heck of a show. Bitchin'.
