Athens Music News Roundup

B-52s this week. WOOOOOOOOO!

Jordan got interviewed by Kyle Bylin of Hypebot.com about local blogs and why they matter. Check out part 1 here and part 2 here. 

Go-Go Boots by the Drive-By Truckers now available to the world! YAY!

The Modern Skirts will be opening up for of Montreal at the Buckhead Theatre on May 20th. Yeah, that’s a bit weird.

From REPTAR:”HEY YOU! Wanna be in our music video? We need extras to meet us at Flicker in Athens TODAY, February 15th at 6 pm!!!! Come hang out with us! Wear crazy clothing / face paint / pleasure disks and name tags! Be ripe. No overripe or unripe fruit allowed.”

A couple of reminders for ya, R.E.M. wants you to remix “It Happened Today” and The Baseball Project (hallowed be thy names) is headed to ATL and ATH on tour! Link here.

On the non-AMJ/other business side, I’ve got a lot of bands asking me about SXSW shows they could play. If you’ve got one that needs a solid Athens band, send a post to athensmusicjunkie@gmail.com.

Speaking of festivals, Bonnaroo’s lineup is out. It features Widespread Panic (and office favorites the Decemberists and Arcade Fire)
