fter a weekend of doing whatever it is you like to do on the weekend, what better way to draw it to a close and get ready for the upcoming work week than a night of killer tunes. Once again the 99X Unplugged in the Park series is taking place at the Park Tavern in Piedmont Park and this Sunday night June 3rd, Atlanta’s Delta Moon will be jamming their dirty soulful blues for anyone who wants to come listen.

Delta Moon has been out on tour supporting their latest album Black Cat Oil. Chock full of nasty guitar riffs, gruff vocals and powerful lyrics it is some of their best work as a band. Led by the guitar playing of Tom Gray and Mark Johnson the Atlanta blues band need to be experienced live. Their albums are damn good but live and in your face is where they thrive. Whether a theatre, a small club or outside where they will be playing Sunday, they always sound good.

Joining them for a night of music is Alabama’s Some Dark HollerChris Porter and Helen Gassenheimer deliver dark southern songs touching on subject matter such as drugs, drankin’ and southern life. Their songs are anchored by Porter’s gravely vocals and energetic guitars and complemented perfectly by Gassenheimer’s sweet voice and fiddle playing. They will be playing tunes from their debut self titled EP which you can download for free here. You get two chances to catch them because they will also be playing at the Old Crow in Sandy Springs on Saturday night June 2nd.

Get all your yard work done, get the family time out of the way then get your ass down to the Park Tavern and check out Delta Moon and Some Dark Holler. Things kick off around 7pm with the band Seven Handle Circus so get their early grab a cold one and get ready to enjoy some killer music.
