Named for a favorite restaurant of his youth, veteran Restauranteur Bob Amick of Concentrics brings us his latest creation, Bully Boy, an East Coast seafood concept located just a few feet from the Beltline’s Eastside Trail. Yellow fin tuna wraps, lobster frittes and blue crab fried rice are but a few of the extensive list of maritime vittles for which to nosedive. Executive chef Michael Bertozzi of sister concept, Two Urban Licks, helms the ship and delivers the seafood bounty as well as a few items from terra firma like a 60-second steak and rabbit patty melt and a massive pork shoulder feast that feeds 4. Justin Amick, Bob’s son and libation genius has curated the wine list to go with your nautical noshes. 4

Scallops crudo with eel sauce and tobiko at Banshee East Atlanta has been “on the verge” for what seems like the past twenty years, but it also has failed to produce a restaurant that has garnered the kind of critical acclaim that has drawn Atlantans from far and wide. Until now. Started by a group of friends, the new Banshee exudes youthful hipsterism and pulsates with sophisticated energy. The food? So good that its chef, Nolan Wynn, recently garnered a James Beard Award nomination. Beautiful plates of globallyinspired, locally sourced and seasonally guided food like scallops crudo with a savory Japanese eel sauce, fried bread with a spectacular pepperoni butter, lobster taglierini with Spanish chorizo and cobia made with an Asian dashi broth and enoki mushrooms are a few of chef Wynn’s creations that are worthy of high praise — and a drive across town.

Ernest Hemingway once described the unwritten page as a “white bull,” an intimidating foe which he would conquer with his writing. If chef Pat Pascarella, executive chef at Decatur’s The White Bull, has similar trepidations, his cooking does not reflect it. Smart Italian dishes of land and sea like crispy oysters and Anson Mills grits, beef ragu, striped bass crudo and tilefish cooked with pork belly are some of the rich, savory bites to expect. Plus house-made pasta like ferricelli, rigatoni, agnolotti, mafalde will melt in your mouth. But for true theater, book a Polenta Party, a chef’s table experience for 6 or more where the chef prepares a creamy feast that is poured across the long table and mixed with chicken, pork and vegetables. No plates, just grab a fork and enjoy! Chef Tom Catherall (Formerly founder of Here to Serve Restaurant Group) has finally retired and his swan song, the popular Virginia Highland spot, Taco Cowboy, has now transitioned to Bar.Bacoa, a den of tacos, tapas and tequilas. Dozens of Latin classics, all plated beautifully and cheffed up to

Atlanta will soon be the proud parent of a baby owlet! Hoots, “a Hooters Joint,” (yes, that Hooters) will be opening its first Georgia location of the offspring concept this year. This quickserve version of the parent restaurant will open in Madison Yards in Reynoldstown next to the new AMC Theatres/Publix anchored project. The traditional scantily clad Hooter Girls will be replaced by a more family-friendly co-ed staff wearing V-necks, polos, and khakis. The menu will be a Cliff’s Notes version of the original; a collection of “top takeout sellers” such as various wings and chicken sandwiches and sides like fried pickles and loaded tots. Don’t have a taste for chicken wings? How about a turkey leg? Houston-based Turkey Leg Hut will bring its “world famous stuffed turkey legs” to the former Figo Pasta space in West Midtown. The Houston original offers seven varieties of legs including their signature leg that’s stuffed with dirty rice, a leg stuffed with Cajun mac n cheese and another stuffed with grilled shrimp and Cajun alfredo sauce.

Five years after the release of their last album, Mexican acoustic rock guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela are ready to embark on the next chapter of their remarkable story with the release of the most ambitious music of their twenty-year career together. Titled Mettavolution, the white-hot new album brings together Rod and Gab’s shimmering, hummingbird flourishes and extraordinary engine room rhythm section, and is laser focused on melody, energy, and beat. There is not an ounce of excess baggage on the fresh, dynamic tunes that Rod and Gab present, which blend metal, jazz, and Hispanic roots music in their own unique, unmistakable style. Through relentless touring and terrific word-of-mouth support, Rodrigo y Gabriela have established themselves as an in-demand live act, particularly in America, where they sold out the Hollywood Bowl (two nights) and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre as recently as summer 2018. They have also sold out multiple nights at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Le Zenith in Paris, and Radio City Music Hall in New York, not to mention venues in Australia, Japan, and Europe. They are recognized by their fans and critics alike as being one of the top live touring acts in the world.

Sitting at the piano at a Motown Christmas party, life cannot get any better for a young Marvin Gaye, until his attention is captured by one of the most beautiful and glamorous women he has ever laid eyes on. This woman’s beauty rivals any Hollywood movie star’s and Marvin has to have her, but there is just one problem: she is Berry Gordy’s sister. Marvin finds this intriguing and embarks upon a flirtatious conquest of Anna until she relents. However, Marvin who refers to himself as a “ram and a rebel,” is met with the fierceness of Anna’s strength, independence and power, which makes for an explosive love affair with neither willing to be controlled by the other. Amid the turbulent sociopolitical backdrop of the 50’s and 60’s, life experiences that grow out of familial strife, war and social struggles give birth to artistic genius, such as the building of Motown Records and its many iconic talents. This era also births epic love stories, among which is the tumultuous and passionate journey of one of history’s most intriguing power couples, Marvin Gaye and Anna Gordy. Marvin is a smooth, young and sexy balladeer. And Anna, though ahead of her time, is a brilliant entrepreneur, songwriter and talent developer. This makes the crossing of their paths inevitable. Pride and Joy tells the riveting story of this union and how the two change history, the music industry and Motown Records through ballads inspired by their love, conflict and creativity. The story journeys through romantic and even volatile clashes between Marvin and Anna, which ultimately influence the direction and sound of Motown. Featuring 28 songs from the legendary Motown catalogue, including the greatest hits of iconic Grammy Award-winning singer, Marvin Gaye!

Brit Floyd, the world’s greatest Pink Floyd tribute show, visits the Fox Theatre June 12 at 8 p.m. with its most ambitious and biggest production yet — a very special 40th anniversary celebration of Pink Floyd’s iconic rock opera, The Wall. Released in November 1979, The Wall is a semiautobiographical concept album from the mind of Pink Floyd founding member Roger Waters. It remains one of the biggest selling albums of all time, and is a major moment in rock music history. Along with highlights from The Wall, this special anniversary production will include songs from Pink Floyd’s classic albums The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, The Division Bell, and much more. Brit Floyd has truly become a phenomenon, and is widely regarded as the world’s greatest live tribute to Pink Floyd. The group faithfully recreates the scale and pomp of the final 1994 Division Bell tour, complete with a stunning multi-million dollar light show, large circular screen and arch, plus projection, lasers, inflatables, and theatrics. A Brit Floyd show is as close as fans will get to experiencing the magnificence of the original Pink Floyd live shows. Believe the hype and don’t miss it!

Following its Tony-nominated hit Broadway run seen by tens of thousands, Tony Award winner John Leguizamo’s one-man play Latin History for Morons will play the Fox Theatre for one performance only on July 10. In the show, John Leguizamo embarks on an outrageously funny, frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son’s school history project after discovering a near-total absence of Latinos from his son’s American history books. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of unknown Latin patriots of the Revolutionary War and beyond, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Pitbull into 110 irreverent and uncensored minutes above and beyond his usual unique style. Steven Suskin of The Huffington Post proclaims, “John Leguizamo is back, as smart, provocative, bracing – and wise – as ever. In this dazzling comedic-philosophic evening of laughter, his Latin lesson is a treat.”

Capping over 50 years of touring and recording, George Clinton is set to embark on his final tour – One Nation Under a Groove – with the legendary Parliament-Funkadelic before he retires. He will make one last stop at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre on Thursday, July 25. After joining Red Hot Chili Peppers for a nine-city tour of Australia, the group hit the road in North America with the One Nation Under a Groove Tour. Joining P-Funk are Galactic, Fishbone and Miss Velvet & The Blue Wolf — all of whom are taking time out of their own busy schedules to hit the road with this Grammy-winning, once-rainbow-dreadlocked pioneer of funk, hip hop and rock & roll. Parliament-Funkadelic has been a touring force for decades, and the current lineup, including veterans Bennie Cowan (trumpet), Greg Thomas (sax), Lige Curry (bass), and Blackbird McKnight (guitar), have been with George for more than 30 years. Parliament-Funkadelic also now includes many younger generations of Clinton’s family who are set to move the legacy I-14 ATLANTA’S HISTORIC FOX THEATRE | FOXTHEATRE.ORG


forward into the 21st century. This blended-family business has no plans of slowing down, even with their helmsman moving on. “It’s always been about the music and the band” says the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, “That’s the real P-Funk legacy. They’ll still be funkin’ long after I stop.” Universal Attractions Agency (UAA) and its co-owners Jeff Epstein and Jeff Allen are gearing up to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the company’s founding in 1945. The flagship One Nation Under a Groove tour is just one of many shows they are rolling out for the 2019-2020 season. “We are excited and honored to be sending one of the most iconic touring artists in history into his well-deserved retirement with a bang, and quite a bang this will be. It is a fitting culmination of our years of work together,” says Jeff Epstein. Billboard summed up the historic nature of this moment perfectly in their coverage of the retirement announcement: “If you want to watch the original master of funk do his thing, you’ve got one more year. Parliament-Funkadelic frontman/ producer George Clinton is set to retire from touring in 2019.” ENCORE ATLANTA | ATLANTA’S PERFORMING ARTS PUBLICATION | ENCOREATLANTA.COM

Décor The architectural style throughout the club draws from myriad styles, including Moorish, Turkish, Mediterranean, Arabic, and Art Nouveau. The main level chandelier features over 200 hand blown glass pieces from California and handmade lamps from Dubai. Also found on the main level is a hand painted mural by the London-based company de Gournay. Moving from the main level to the mezzanine provides exquisite surroundings both by stairs or by elevator. The main staircase leads both to the mezzanine level and to the terrace level, guiding visitors with bright light, gold trimmings, and beautiful tiling reflecting on each step. Visitors on the mezzanine level can look out to the main level below through laser cut screens of Moroccan design. Chairs and benches invite visitors to lounge and relax in the mid-level area with the mezzanine bar nearby. When arriving on the terrace level by the grand gold staircase, visitors are greeted by beautiful green tiling. These jewel-toned, uniquely shaped tiles are just one example of the club’s collection of eye-catching tile and stone. The stone found in the Marquee Club was sourced from three continents, and includes blue bahia, a granite from Brazil on bar tops, and an Italian mosaic tile called crema marfil. The design was created by Atlanta-based architecture firm Lord Aeck Sargent. Tucker’s Corn Upholstery Company created 71 pieces of custom furniture for the club. Janus et Cie, maker of luxury outdoor furniture, supplied the outdoor seating for the terrace levels. Contributions from almost 50 other Georgia-based vendors can be seen throughout the ornate décor.

Instead, subtle and natural instances of the sponsor’s presence is seen on napkins and glass wear.

If additional assistance is needed, the usher will get the appropriate person to further help you. 11.

FOX FUN FACTS The Fox Theatre Ballrooms The Egyptian Ballroom, Grand Salon, and Spanish Room were all originally Shriner meeting spaces. Here are some other fun facts: • The Egyptian Ballroom was reserved for Shriner ceremonies and celebrations and the adjoining Grand Salon served as their library. • The 7,500-square foot Egyptian Ballroom’s original floor is hard rock maple. A custom-designed carpet with Egyptian symbols of the afterlife and resurrection now protects the maple floor.

• Depicted on the Egyptian Ballroom’s balcony is a scarab, or dung beetle, which was the symbol for the sun god Ra, who was thought to ward off evil. It is surrounded by the wings of Osiris, god of the underworld, afterlife, and resurrection. • Above the Egyptian Ballroom’s stage stretch the gilded and glazed wings of Osiris. A plaster intaglio panel of Ramses II subduing an enemy is the focal point of the stage.

• Although the symbols painted in the Egyptian Ballroom are actual hieroglyphics, when put together, they do not form any real phrases.

• In the 1970s, the walls of the Egyptian Ballroom were covered with several coats of paint obscuring the original stenciled designs. As years of paint were removed, vivid Egyptian symbols for life and rebirth were revealed.
