More on the Blue Ribbon Ball (Athens in August)
It seems a bit silly for an Atlanta blog to get Athens news via a blog based in Kentucky, but such is life. Matt at You Ain't No Picasso has posted the details for the Blue Ribbon Ball in Athens from 8/3-8/5 at the Fabulous 40 Watt Club. Headliners include Modern Skirts (Athens), Man Man (Philly), and Elf Power (Athens) with Lylas (Nashville), Iron Hero (Athens), Dark Meat (Athens), and others supporting. Looks good.
Go here to see the schedule and details at You Ain't No Picasso. Matt also has tracks posted for each act.
