Roi Tamkin got the blues at this year’s Music Midtown festival in Atlanta, as he caught sets from Koko Taylor and her Blues Machine, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, the Jeff Healey Band, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and the Allman Brothers Band.
A little bit of hardcore, a little bit of power pop, a little bit of new wave, a little bit of rock and roll, and a little bit of punk – Roi Tamkin caught an eclectic show with Sense Field, the Stereo, and Lift at Atlanta’s Echo Lounge on April 27, 2000.
Music Midtown is a great chance to catch bands you might never get to see otherwise. Frank Mullen took some chances at this year’s festival in Atlanta, and found out what he’d been missing from the likes of Jimmy Cliff, BR5-49, the Jungle Brothers, and Bjorn Again, as well as a pre-Noel Gallagher walk-out Oasis.

Director Laura Citarella, of the famed filmmaking collective El Pampero Cine, has created with her newest feature Trenque Lauquen a provocative transformation of her protagonist Laura (Laura Parades), whom Citarella first introduced in her 2011 film Ostende. Lily and Generoso enjoyed an in-depth conversation with Citarella about Trenque Lauquen when it screened at AFI Fest 2022.
Back in 2018, Lily and Generoso selected Adirley Queirós’s Once There Was Brasilia as a top ten film. That feature’s cinematographer, Joana Pimenta, has now co-directed with Queirós one of the most expansive political films we’ve seen this year, Dry Ground Burning. Lily and Generoso interviewed Pimenta at AFI Fest earlier this month.
