Decatur, GA, 30030
Doors 6:00 PM / Show 7:00 PM
Originally from Athens, Georgia and now living in Decatur, Mike counts Bob Dylan, Vic Chestnut, Nirvana, and Uncle Tupelo among his formative influences. He has shared the stage with southern rock legends the Marshall Tucker Band, Grammy Award winners The Blind Boys of Alabama, and alt-country luminary Jay Farrar.
Mike's third full-length album, "Poverty is Real" re-released on Saturn 5 Records in August 2015 to worldwide distribution. The record, produced by Will Robertson, is a more muscular presentation of Mike's songwriting than found previously, with crunchy electric guitars and crash cymbals appearing throughout. BeAtlanta.com called "Poverty is Real" "a collection of beautiful arrangements and meaningful lyrics." The title track was featured in acclaimed director Salvatore Alaimo's documentary, "What is Philanthropy?"
Emily Backus and Meg Brooks became Total Babe thanks to some determined and encouraging mutual friends, some light internet stalking, a musical blind date, and a shared affection for songs that make your soul say “oof”—the punch-in-the-gut, roar-in-the-throat, tug-on-the-heartstrings, tell-yourself-the-truth, joyful-noise songs. Schoolteachers by day, Emily and Meg have the earliest bedtimes of any band you know. Their forthcoming EP, TB, is slated for release in January. They have the best moms ever, and can be found sharing the #TeamMom gospel at facebook.com/totalbabeATL .
