This Week In Live Music – August 29 – Sept 5 (Labor Day Edition)

@ One Eyed Jack's - Mon., August 29

Get out there.

This week marks the beginning of the glorious reign of football season over the collective psyche of Louisiana and a seriously busy fall concert calendar ramps up as temperatures (hopefully) begin to drop. Right off the bat, Athens, GA’s Olivia Tremor Control will be playing Monday night at One Eyed Jack’s (a show being presented by Aquarium Drunkard) and the week is bookended with a two-night run with another Athens, GA band when Drive-By Truckers stop in for a weekend of shows at Tip’s on Saturday and Sunday. Also, trying something new for those of you on Spotify, I’ve created a playlist of bands featured on this week’s calendar, so check that out here if you wanna hear what’s coming to town this week.

Check out the schedule and some YouTubes of bands playing here this week after the jump.
