Violet Vector and the Lovely Lovelies
Reporting in from Athens Popfest, where the daytime festivities at Little Kings are over. Of what I saw, the winner of the day was Violet Vector and the Lovely Lovelies. They got mad blog love about six weeks ago, and I can see why. They're a North Carolina pop outfit with a throwback sound, and I'm looking forward to their forthcoming EP. For now, a sample courtesy of the band:

I also met Robert Schneider (of Apples in Stereo, Marbles, Ulysses, Thee American Revolution, Orchestra Fantastique) and his wife Marci (of Ideal Free Distribution). They were coming out of The Grit when we were going in for lunch. Go figure.
