The week ahead: Athens Popfest (and the Cubs!)


Busy week ahead as my Chicago Cubs are in Atlanta from Tuesday through Thursday, while Athens Popfest runs from Tuesday until Saturday. I'll be at Turner Field on Tuesday and running around Popfest the rest of the week. If all goes as planned I'll upload pictures as the week/end progresses, though I'm sure they won't measure up to Mike's output.

I'll be running around with PJ from The Yellow Stereo, so expect coverage on both ends. I'm sure Sloan, Gordon, HHBTM Mike, and Casper will be around, and I believe Jeff from Optical Atlas will be too.

Sadly I will not be there, because I can't afford to this year (I'm broke). But it looks like a blast, especially Saturday. :)

First night was short and sweet, yet still fun. While not exactly Popfest style, Boy Hay's set allowed me to get my bluegrass fix in, after missing Rockygrass in CO this year.

And I skipped out on the Gnarls show, despite Ben's insistence on the know-how of scheming in! ;

The Braves game got rained out, so I think we're gonna hit the day game tomorrow.

I didn't have any interest in the Gnarls Barkley show. Will be back for the evening stuff tomorrow though.
