Our “FLOWERS OF ROMANCE” show comes to an end this weekend at the MINI GALLERY, here in downtown Athens, Georgia, and we’re closing things out with A BANG, courtesy of our friends, THE LOPEZ, who are in the midst of an East Coast tour. Fans of hard-hitting Riot Grrrl-style punk, rejoice! They will be rocking Low Yo Yo Stuff Records / Get Rad! Skate Shop / Mini Gallery this Saturday (tomorrow!) at 6:30 PM before heading off to do a local house show later that same evening. The show is NOT in conjunction with the big SLINGSHOT ARTS FESTIVAL happening around us this weekend, so no wristbands are necessary to enjoy this TOTALLY FREE show…come on in, look at awesome art, and hear some great music!
Hey Everybody! I’m going to be a-playin’ my trumpet with FOLKLORE all this weekend and you should come check us out if you can because I don’t know how often this is going to happen!…ya see, Jimmy Hughes, the head honcho of Folklore, moved away from Athens, Georgia last year and re-located to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He has since put together a PHILLY VERSION of Folklore and they started playing a buncha shows in and around the Philly area. This is the first time the Philly version of Folklore will be touring down to Georgia and we are going to be combining the Northern and Southern members of the band into one big SUPER GROUP (in my head I’ve been calling it MEGA FOLKLORE). You can read about all the details HERE, via FLAGPOLE, our local arts, culture, and entertainment weekly…Mega Folklore will be playing two shows in Athens, and one in Atlanta, starting this Friday night:
