History

- Where Live Music Matters -

Eddie’s Attic is a popular and intimate live music venue for aspiring and accomplished performing songwriters. The Attic is located in Decatur, Georgia, a small artist-friendly town within the metro Atlanta area – a cultural blend of Berkeley and Mayberry. A “listening room” with a superior sound system/acoustics, where customers are asked to silence cell phones and actually listen to the songs, has made the Attic’s music room a hit with music enthusiasts. Eddie’s Attic draws both fans and artists from all over the world, and continues to be one of the premier music venues in the South. On any given night, music lovers can hear talented performing songwriters and bands playing original music in an intimate setting. The Attic welcomes all varieties of original, live music and embraces the diversity that allows independent music to thrive.

In its first 19 years, Eddie’s Attic has been the springboard for an amazing number of local artists who have gone on to receive national recognition – names like John Mayer, Sugarland, Shawn Mullins, and The Civil Wars.

The list of nationally known talents who have played this stage is also impressive – names like the Indigo Girls, John Gorka, Sheryl Crow, Ani DiFranco, Brandi Carlile, The Black Crowes, Al Stewart, David Wilcox, Bill Mallonee, Kevn Kinney, Edwin McCain, Richard Shindell, Ellis Paul, Francine Reed, Patty Larkin, Malcomb Holcombe, Larry Jon Wilson, Eric Taylor, Glen Phillips, Dana Cooper, Billy Joe Shaver, Pierce Pettis, Kate Campbell, Cheryl Wheeler, Cliff Eberhardt, Vance Gilbert, Lowen & Navarro, India.Arie, Justin Bieber, Brian Vander Ark, and Don Conoscenti.

 Eddie’s Attic is a true community center for Decatur as a city, and for performing songwriters throughout metro Atlanta.   The management and staff are very appreciative of the customers and artists who have supported Eddie’s Attic over the years.  Whether it’s for the amazing original live music in the music room, or for the friendliest patio space in Decatur, you should expect outstanding food, drink, and service, and you should expect to have the time of your life.  Come see us soon, and see why Live Music Matters.
