In the heart of Midtown Atlanta, at the bottom of a dead-end street, a small dive bar opened its doors with one intention: “To become the sanctuary for the masses.” A quarter century later The Yin Yang Music Cafe provides the backdrop for the greatest story never told. Until now. While events like Freaknik and the ‘96 Olympic Games brought both national and international attention to the city, the Yin Yang Music Cafe was serving as proving ground for underground artists like Joi, Anthony David, India Arie, David Banner and Bonecrusher (the platinum artist that pulled double duty as cook ). Not only was the Yin Yang Cafe a gathering spot for local artists looking to sharpen their skills, it also served as a hangout for musical legends like Prince and George Benson who just happened to be passing through The Town. The walls of this dilapidated building not only massaged the sound of what we now call Neo-Soul, many of the artists that graced the stage went on to shape 90’s music and culture and beyond. Spring & 3rd not only serves up an unbelievable soundtrack, it also provides a timely and honest discussion of the intersectionality of art business and diversity in our ever evolving society.
