This is going to be a fun week here in Atlanta! There are a lot of great bands and shows to see this week and a pre-season Hawks game to take in. The Falcons have a By Week and the Yellow Jackets are playing away. Be sure to get your tickets in advance as events can sell out fast. Check out the Hawks take on the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday for a pre-season game on Tuesday at Philips Arena . The Hawks have a completely revamped roster this season and there are big expectations from this new team. There is potential for some of the new players like Dennis Schroder, John Jenkins, Mike Scott, Pero Antic and others to break out. The biggest concerts of the week goes to Nine Inch Nails who can be seen at Philips Arena on Thursday and Selena Gomez on Saturday, also at Philips Arena.
