Atlanta is the music city of the South, at least for the genres that Nashville doesn’t have covered (so everything but country). And we’ve seen tens of successful bands/musicians come out of the big A.
You know the city as the hometown of Usher, India Arie, Ludacris, Ciara, Janelle Monae, the Indigo Girls, John Mayer, the Zac Brown Band, and now, Algiers. And while Algiers wasn’t the first very new-wave sound to come out of Atlanta (the Indigo Girls were breaking a lot of boundaries in the ’80s), they’re definitely one of the newest raw sounds on the scene.
When you listen to their music, it’s like each album is on shuffle. One track you listen to sounds like old-town soul, one sounds like rock and roll, while another one is almost like protest music. It’s an impressive range, especially since there are only four people in the band!
From Atlanta to New York, to London
While the band is from Atlanta, they don’t still hang out in the south’s music city. When they’re not touring, you can find the four together in New York City. Or, they’re sometimes split up, with some in NYC, and some across the pond in London. No matter what continent they’re on, it’s always musical magic when they get together!
Blood and Claudette
The group’s first single was “Blood,” which they released 500 copies of. It sold out more quickly than they could have ever dreamed, and they followed it up with the single, “Claudette.” Claudette, bless her heart, was the song that got them signed to Matador Records. She opened a lot of doors for them! They’re just about to drop (or just dropped) a new album, and they’re bound to go on tour to promote it.
Frequently Asked Questions

Algiers ticket prices will differ depending on the source and the seats. The best price for Algiers tickets is usually around $24 a ticket, and that’s for nosebleed seats! If you want floor seats, or if you’re shopping for tickets at a popular venue, you could easily be looking at a few hundred dollars more.
How to buy Algiers tickets?
Algiers ticket prices are going to be pretty high if purchased directly from the box office. That means the best way to buy cheap Algiers tickets is online through a ticket marketplace. Ticket marketplaces like Gametime are perfect because they put you in contact with resellers looking to move seats at a relative bargain. It’s the safest and most affordable way to get the best price for Algiers tickets.

- Walk Like a Panther
- The Underside of Power
- Irony. Utility. Pretext.
How long is an Algiers concert?
With such an epic setlist, you can expect Algiers’s performance to last for around 90 minutes, from start to finish. When you take opening acts into account, you’re looking at two to three hours of entertainment.
How much are Algiers floor seats?
The best way to see Algiers live is up close and personal from the floor, but these seats are always super expensive. The cheap end of floor seats can easily be $76 to $122, and if you’re seeing Algiers at a venue with stage pit seats it could be even more pricey.
Of course, there are ways around this. There’s a great strategy for cutting Algiers ticket prices on floor seats and the best part is that it requires you to do literally nothing but wait. Waiting until the last minute can get you some great discounts because resellers with unsold seats don’t make any money. Wait it out and watch those prices drop to something more affordable, and then enjoy your floor seats!
