SoCo Music Experience this weekend
First of all, great to see so many folks tonight. Greg from Captain's Dead, Tessa from Drive a Faster Car, Matt from KissAtlanta, the Criminal crew, and everyone else were cool as could be this evening. Giant Drag and Mark Kozelek more than held their own too. And Greg, thanks for the beer!

Spread the word. Regular readers already know that I'm hyped for that 5-10pm lineup on Sunday. Woohoo! Hope to see some of you there.
Also this weekend...
On Saturday night, Athens rock monsters The Whigs will be at The EARL with Augustine and Army of Me. They'll also be on a side stage Sunday at Centennial Olympic Park. Oh, happy day!
If you're looking for something low-key (and hangover-friendly) to do on Sunday afternoon, head down to The EARL for brunch and dunch. The Georgia Fireflies (featuring Leanna Fugate and Jeff Holt of Silent Kids) will be playing good ol' Americana/old-timey tunes and it promises to be a good time. Joe and I should be there, so come have a pre-blowout beer with us. Music starts at 1pm.
The Whigs - Violet Furs
The Flaming Lips - Do You Realize?
