Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Tinted Glasses EP celebration show for one of my fellow contributors and favorite Atlanta artists, Maggie Schneider. This was her first show with a full band and I must say, while I enjoy her acoustic sets, having a full band behind her suits Maggie.

She was joined on stage for this show by Survival Kit and Next Year’s End — both amazing Atlanta bands that deserve your attention. Survival Kit was just as funny as they were talented; it was like a comedy show in between songs.

Next Years End has been one of my favorite local bands for some time now. They have the aesthetics down to a science and their live show is amazing. They also performed an amazing version of “Sex” by The 1975.

Maggie hit the stage next and played a mix of old songs, new songs, and covers. Every song she played off the new EP was absolutely phenomenal.  “Chuck Bass” was my favorite of her new material — what’s better than a great song named after one of the most amazingly-written television show characters ever?

Maggie turned the Masquerade into Emo Nite with a mashup of some of the best songs in pop-punk history, playing an amazing cover of “Dirty Laundry” by All Time Low, which was a huge hit with the crowd.

Maggie, as well as her openers, did an amazing job and I can’t wait for the EP to come out so I can jam these new songs whenever I want. If you haven’t given Maggie a listen yet, you’ll definitely want to start adding her to your playlists now. It won’t be long until she’s selling out shows all over the country.
