    Joey Huffman , a local ATL musician, was diagnosed with a brain tumor on 10/1/2013 and it must be surgically removed immediately. Joey has played keys for the likes of drivin' n' cryin', Soul Asylum, Liz Melendez and Hank Williams Jr. just to name a few. His surgery is set for 11/14/2013, which will cost $80,000 (estimate from hospital). He does not have private medical insurance. The medical bills are already starting to pile up from the tests, specialists, etc. that were needed to even get the diagnosis and then a surgery set, with an avalanche to follow. This benefit serves to relieve Joey of some financial stress and get him on the road to recovery. There will be LIVE music, raffles, prizes and much fun to be had here at The 120 Tavern & Music Hall on Friday, November 8th! Most importantly all proceeds raised from this event will go directly to Joey to help pay his medical bills. Lineup TBA within the next few days! Tickets: minimum $10 donation Battle and Brew gift cards, Mystic Owl (tattoo/piercing gift cards), Salon Red (Haircut and color gift cards) if you cannot make it and would like to make a donation, the link is below! http://www.gofundme.com/HelpForHuffman MUSIC BY: Gasoline Bros.

    Tinsley Ellis w/ Liz Melendez & Little G Weevil at The 120 Tavern & Music Hall. This is an Atlanta Blues lineup at it's best. Not to mention, this is a rare chance to see these phenomenal blues guitarists up close and personal in an intimate setting! Tinsley Ellis wears his Southern roots proudly. Born in Atlanta in 1957, he grew up in southern Florida and first played guitar at age eight. He found the blues through the back door of British Invasion bands like The Yardbirds, The Animals, Cream, and The Rolling Stones. He especially loved the Kings — Freddie, B.B. and Albert. His love for the blues solidified when he was 14. At a B.B. King performance, Tinsley sat mesmerized in the front row. When B.B. broke a string on Lucille, he changed it without missing a beat, and handed the broken string to Ellis. Tinsley’s fate was sealed; he had to become a blues guitarist. And yes, he still has that string. Averaging over 150 live shows a year, Ellis has played in all 50 states, as well as Canada, Europe, Australia and South America. Whether he’s out with his own band or sharing stages with major artists like Buddy Guy, The Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule or Widespread Panic, he always digs deep and plays, as Guitar Player says, “…as if his life depended on it.” Ellis' most recent tour with Blues At The Crossroads II: Muddy & The Wolf with the Fabulous Thunderbirds featuring Kim Wilson, James Cotton, Jody Williams and Bob Margolin was by all accounts one of the best shows of 2013.
