Athens Music News Roundup!

Tonight’s Dead Confederate, Five Eight, Bambara show has been moved to MAX from the Georgia Theatre due to concerns from the inspectors that the sprinklers in the building weren’t putting out enough water.

The Humms show at New Earth tonight has been cancelled and will be rescheduled for a later date.

POPFEST has announced its headliners and boy is the list a doozy. You’ve got OLIVIA TREMOR CONTROL, BOB MOULD, THE DEAD MILKMEN, MAN OR ASTROMAN?, THROWING MUSES, KLEENEX GIRL WONDER, and MASTERS of THE HEMISPHERE. Additional supporting acts will be announced closer to October.

The Warm Fuzzies are doing a fan of the month thing over on their Tumblr. Check it out!

The Athens GA Half Marathon will be held OCT 22 – 23 and deadline for early registration is July 31.

This is the last weekend for you to get 75% off at Gigworn which is shutting down soon.

Also shutting down? Friggin’ Schoolkids Records. 😦

And every single Borders Bookstore.

In AMJ news, we just changed our Twitter name from blueshades to AthMusicJunkie in order to stop some of the confusion. And it probably just causes more. *shrug*

Mike Mills of R.E.M. will be on Just Off the Radar on Sunday at 4 p.m.

*whew* Busy day…
