Moving to Atlanta

So I’m moving to the Norcross/Atlanta area in about a month and I know nothing of the area. A friend of mine moved down there about a year ago and invited me to live at his place since a roommate is moving out. I accepted the invite and am currently in the begining of the final stages of moving.

I don’t really know much about the area and would appreciate some input if anyone out there can tell me about my new near-future home.

I’m interested in live music, good hang out spots,where the good shops are, That kind of stuff.


I lived in Atlanta for a significant chunk of my life, but moved away about ten years ago. You should go see bands at The Earl; that’s about all the current advice I have.
