Subsonics' In the Black Spot

What a freaking great garage scene they've got in Atlanta, however much it gets ignored in favor of hip hop. I am streaming, right now, the late 2012 latest from the Subsonics In the Black Spot, a Dolls-ish, T. Rex-ish, Cramps-ish vortex of punk and glam and a little rockabilly. Black Lips, who are really no slouch themselves, called the Subsonics the "best band in Atlanta." My first SXSW, I was sitting around in a hotel room with a bunch of people trying to figure out what to do, and somebody said "Subsonics" and I went, but only because I thought they said "Sonics," which is a whole different thing.

So yeah, check it out.
