While you're on vacation...

The buzz around town is heating up! I've got a few cool little tidbits I've just got to share with you all.

First up, if you're not already a fan of the Warm Fuzzies, you've truly been missing out. Their name is really the best description I could ever give for that cozy feeling you get when you listen to their tunes. And, for the past few months, they've been sharing FREE, smile-inducing songs on their site too! Check out their Fuzz of the Month and let your eardrums frolic with joy!

In other news, The Spinoffs, Chris McKay's brand new side project, are one of the many awesome Athens bands featured on this year's Athfest Compilation CD. You'll get to check out their latest song Lucky Stars when the compilation goes on sale in June, but to tide you over till then, you can find a list of all of the bands and songs that will be on the CD right here.

And finally, speaking of Athfest, the latest news from the Georgia Theatre people suggests that they hope to finish rebuilding and reopen the theatre by June 19, 2011, just in time for this year's music festival! I've talked to some pals who have seen the construction inside firsthand, and they say it's looking pretty amazing. Can't wait to see it when it's a thriving landmark and masterpiece once again!


  1. Hey Kristen!

    Thanks again for the mention. Just to clarify, though. The Critical Darlings are my new Critical Darlings with an all new lineup.

    The Spinoffs is my side project with Bryan J. Howard, Kathy Kirbo and Ian Werden.

    The Pretty Please is a third band I'm enjoying playing with featuring Ash Miltiades from Guff and the Michael Guthrie Band plus members of Burns Like Fire.

    I'm busy - but have no doubt. The Critical Darlings have been resurrected in new flesh.

    I hope to see you soon.


  2. Thanks for the clarification, Chris. Wow, you're busy! Can't wait to see the latest incarnation of the Critical Darlings.
