Athfest 2013: Dirty Athens or Pulaski? Time for some stage hopping!

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013 
Dirty Athens Day Party
 Shonna Tucker and Eyecandy

Full of anticipation and craving even more wild tunes after my rockin' Friday night, I made my way downtown for Athfest early Saturday afternoon.  Before heading to the main stage, I stopped by the Caledonia Lounge's annual Dirty Athens day party, my favorite place to find shade with my tunes during the festival.  It seems a whole lot of people had the same idea I did.  The place was packed!  No surprise really, though.  You can't go wrong with quality bands, a roof overhead, and even some free food. Deciding to stay a while, I caught a bit of their awesome lineup including loud indie rockers Tater Zandra and poppy experimental dreamers Co Co Ri Co, a fun project featuring half of the members of Reptar.

Then I turned the corner and stepped on over to the Pulaski Street stage to hear a bit of Shonna Tucker and Eyecandy.  Her take on southern country rock certainly hit the spot. And speaking of hitting the spot, I caught a glimpse of the giant Menchies  icon dancing along to the band's songs as well.  Athfest Saturday was definitely off to a great start!  I couldn't wait to find out what else the day had in store for me.
