Best Local Promoter

Randy Castello and Tight Bros. Network

Staff Pick

The official talent purchaser for the Drunken Unicorn, RANDY CASTELLO AND TIGHT BROS. NETWORK isn’t the hard-nosed businessman that many promoters fancy themselves. He’s usually found watching the door at the shows he books. And afterward he’s the first one to get the party started with the out-of-town bands. Castello is the winner in this category for the second year in a row because he has a knack for booking cutting-edge underground punk, hip-hop and indie-rock acts to Atlanta — the ones that many Atlanta clubs would pass over — and he’s not afraid to invite newcomers to open his shows. Of Montreal, Prefuse 73, Deerhunter and the Black Lips were all part of the Tight Bros. canon long before anybody else ever heard of them. For that, Atlanta benefits greatly from his presence.
