Kick off 2017 with some of the most popular artists of 2016.
From D.R.A.M. to Lukas Graham, here are five artists that are worth seeing when they visit Atlanta in January.
Let’s be honest, the last thing most of us want to do heading into the New Year is reflect on the past. For the music lovers who don’t mind a little nostalgia, Lukas Graham will perform at The Tabernacle on Jan. 10. The Danish band released their second studio album, featuring “Mama Said” and “7 Years” in 2015. The latter hit helped the band secure three Grammy nominations.
8 p.m. Jan. 10. $27.95. The Tabernacle, 152 Luckie St., Atlanta. Tabernacleatl.com.
Big Baby D.R.A.M. reached a new career high in 2016 with the success of his single “Broccoli,” featuring Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty. If you’re looking to enjoy a night of joyful hip-hop in January, you’ll want to make sure you attend D.R.A.M.’s show at The Loft on Jan. 14.
8 p.m. Jan. 14. $20 (in advance), $25 (day of show). The Loft at Center Stage, 1374 West Peachtree St., Atlanta. Centerstage-atlanta.com.
Rock band Breaking Benjamin is scheduled to perform in Atlanta in January, although news that guitarist Jasen Rauch’s newborn son’s death might derail tour plans.
