Two of Atlanta's greatest rock acts, Royal Thunder and Spirits and the Melchizedek Children, descend upon 529 to conclude what's been an important year for both. Royal Thunder's seismic jams rumbled with austerity on the group's debut LP, CVI (Relapse). Meanwhile, Spirits' slow-burning and vociferous crescendos made it onto a few smaller releases as the group works toward its next album. Between the two, it's a hard-hitting lineup that will bring the year to a roaring close.
