Friday through Sunday, June 25-27: Athfest all day, all over downtown Athens!
ATHFEST! No other words are really necessary. With more than 150 bands on the bill so far, this festival is going to be beyond brilliant!

Well, there it is! Overwhelmed yet? I'm just thrilled! Looks like I'll definitely be visiting Athens more than once this month. As always, if I hear of even more shows I just know you'll like, I'll add them to the list!
