AthFest 2008 initial lineup out

I just noticed this at Optical Atlas, but AthFest 2008 (June 18-22) has released its initial list of performers. All but one (Centro-Matic) call Athens home, and it's shaping up quite nicely:

A. Armada, Bloodkin, Centro-Matic, Cinemechanica, Contraband, Dark Meat, Dead Confederate, Don Chambers + GOAT, Dubconscious, Elf Power, Folklore, Modern Skirts, Pegasuses-XL, Twin Tigers, Velveteen Pink, Venice is Sinking, We Vs. The Shark

Note that Dark Meat, Dubconscious, and Modern Skirts will be headlining.

More bands will appear as the roster is expanded.

The release party for the AthFest 2008 compilation CD will be on May 2 at Tasty World (corner of Broad & Jackson downtown). Packway Handle Band, Titans of Filth, and Timber will perform at the event.

Don't ask what I was thinking, because I have no idea.

Re: the World Series, I'm afraid to comment given my team's century of futility.
