Athfest 2009: Feeling all Warm and Fuzzy

Saturday, June 27th 2009
The Warm Fuzzies

Just after Dancer vs. Politician set the trend for Sweet Music Saturday, the Warm Fuzzies took us for a spin in a completely different direction. After my friends and I left the main stage area, we happened upon this lovely little band while seeking a refreshing touch of cool mist from the sprayers near the Hull Street stage. Their music had us bouncing and dancing along to the beat even before we caught sight of the band. Then I heard their lyrics. Priceless!

If rock, electronica, synth, and pop music all held hands and told jokes to each other in the middle of a sunny field, it would sound like the Warm Fuzzies. They sure had an amazing sense of humor! The subject matter of their songs ranged from love in a fast food drive-through to letters for a pen pal to girls in giant sunglasses. One little ditty even focused entirely on cheese. My favorite, though, had to be the song about having robotic friends. Just turn them on when you need them! What a hilarious idea! After seeing them live, it's no surprise to me that they were up for the Flagpole Athens Music Award: Upstart of the Year. Seriously, if you haven't heard their stuff yet, you've got to check them out. They're like a jolt of happiness to your brain!
