ATL Collective

Happy Holidays Collectives! We’re bringing the funk back into the season. Can we get an amen? On Friday December 22nd, ATL Collective is decking the halls of Variety Playhouse and bringing back James Brown's Funky Christmas + other deliciously funky hits. Curated by Kevin Scott of Atlanta Funk Society, we've got a lineup more solid that the reindeers: Bernard Purdie, Fred Wesley, Marcus King, Jennifer Hartswick, Ruby Velle + so many more! So get your tickets for you and your secret Santa. ATL Collective creates musical events that seek to replicate the intimate experience of listening to an album for the first time, going track by track, reading through the liner notes and turning over the record, truly enjoying the music for what it is, without distractions. Each month, the ATL Collective picks a classic album and collectively covers the track list in sequence. Discover your new favorite Atlanta artists while singing your old favorite songs. A live cover series dedicated to reliving the album.Previous albums have included The Beatles' Abbey Road, The Clash's London Calling, Neil Young's Harvest Moon, Van Morrison's Tupelo Honey and the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds, to name a few.
