A good soundman is hard to find. So when Curt Wells, the Earl's in-house man behind the board since 2007, decided it was time to move on, he left a pretty big hole to fill. While no one was looking, former Earthshaking Music salesman JONATHAN RHUM stepped in and started running sound in one seamless motion. Like Wells before him, Rhum possesses a keen ear and a guitar-playing past that gives him an ability to work the club's sound system in inventive ways. With a down-to-earth disposition, Rhum rises above the stereotype of the grumpy sound guy. And in just a few months, he's already earned a sound reputation. 488 Flat Shoals Ave. 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com.
