The Old Crow Medicine Show at the Fox: Saturday, August 25, 2012

Here's what you do Saturday, August 25, 2012

Check out the Old Crow Medicine Show at the Fox on Friday Night, 8pm

Old Timey.  Bluegrass.  Folk.  Alt-Country.  Old Crow Medicine Show is described a lot of ways.  But, go check them out at the Fox on Saturday night, and you'll see the labels aren't required.  From Consequence of Sound:

"Listening to Old Crow Medicine Show (OCMS) is a time-traveling experience. Unlike similar modern day (pseudo) bluegrass bands, like Mumford and Sons and the Avett Brothers, OCMS has an old-time quality in their songs and delivery that easily fools the listener into thinking they’re spinning a group from the ’40s or ’50s"

They're joined by Very Special Guests: The Lumineers, and The Milk Carton Kids.

The show is at 8.  Doors open at 7.  Tickets are $35.  You can get them at the door, or here.

Here's What You Do does a new day plan every day.  Like us on Facebook below to get updates on your Facebook page.

Here's what you do Saturday:

First:  Potato.  Good.  Sausage.  Good.  Spinach.  Good.  How about we put them together into a casserole for breakfast?!  Check out this recipe at Bon Appetit.  Have it with a cup of coffee and some fresh squeezed OJ.  You're good to go.  ($15)

Second:  Book Hunt.  Go check out A Capella Books.  It's one of the few non-chain bookstores left in Atlanta, and that has made them super focused on stocking their shelves with some really cool finds.  ($ - $depends how much you like books!)

Third:  It's the 9th annual Atlanta German Bierfest.  From the Bierfest:

"The Reinheitsgebot (purity order), are the rules that oversee the process of making German beer. They are also the rules that have made brewing German beer an artform and the outcome, arguably the best beer in the world.Every summer in Atlanta, the Annual German Bierfest celebrates the greatness of German beer in a family-friendly environment. Complete with German food, activities for the kids, music and fun, the German Bierfest is not only the only authentic German Bierfest in Atlanta, but the only family-friendly beer festival as well. For the past few years, the festival has taken place in Woodruff Park in downtown Atlanta. Sometimes there’s sun, sometimes there’s rain, but the beer is always pouring. Attendees can drink all the beer they can safely consume with the purchase of a ticket. Designated drivers attend for free (although they must register online before-hand) and we encourage people to take MARTA to and from the park. A designated driver service is on site for those who find themselves in an unsafe condition to drive home"

It's gonna be fun man!  Tickets are $35 online and $40 at the door.  Enjoy!

Fourth:  Take a nap to get over the beer!  Follow the perfect bed rules.

Fifth:  Get your pre-show dinner on at Baraonda.  Go early, so you have time to enjoy before the play.  Say, 5:30 or 6.  Try the Cozze (mussels) to start, and have the pizza.  It's sublime.  Try the Capricciosa, or the Americana.  Get a good bottle of wine for you and your person.  Maybe the Banfi Superiore Chianti.  I'm making myself hungry writing this!  ($ - $35 per person).

Baraonda brings great Italian food, and great ambiance.

Finally:  Old Crow Medicine Show at the Fox.  Starts at 8.  Tickets are $35.
