Volume 2 – Atlanta, GA
Meet Big Tree, a quintet out of Brooklyn, New York with high hopes and empty pockets. Three dashing young men and two friendly ladies make up this indie pop band. We are the luckiest people on the planet. Our job is to drive from one amazing place to the next, play a show, make new friends, and explore new cities. While we’re on the road, FlipKey invited us to share our experiences living like locals everywhere we go.
We love Georgia. Peaches, college students, grits, and beaches, all in one state! Whenever we’re invited to play in this fair region, we jump at the chance. This time we had two shows in a row in Atlanta, which meant plenty of time to hang out in this awesome city!
We were particularly excited to perform at the Spring Festival at Emory University, where we would be sharing the stage with the band OneRepublic. We’d heard their single “Too Late to Apologize” all over the radio, and now here we were on a giant stage setting up next to all of their gear! We played our set as the sun went down, looking out at all of the college students and the beautiful campus, and feeling lucky as ever.
After the roadies loaded all of our things back into our tour van, a local friend suggested that we celebrate in Five Points – a charming and fun part of town full of shops, bars, and restaurants. We set out to check out The Porter, with its, “brilliant beer bar, grub, and suds in the heart of Little Five Points.”
