Stream the Athfest CD

If you’re the type to “try before you buy,” you might want to head on over to Paste to stream the latest Athfest Compilation. I’d recommend it mainly because this is by far the strongest Athfest release in a while. There’s only one or two band I haven’t really heard before so they’re both nice […]

CD Review: Chris Ezelle

BY CHRIS GUNNELLS Ezelle‘s new album is full of raw, unpolished tunes and that is the way he intended for it to be. The genre of raw blues/folk/country is one that is meant to give the listener the feel of sitting in an old country store and listening to whomever brought their guitar to pick. […]

Dreams So Real Returns

I have a soft spot for Dreams So Real. Not only do I really dig the music, but the band was my first really big main feature story for Flagpole. I may or may not have geeked out and gotten them to sign that column. Anywho, the guys are back again and are playing the […]

Athens Music News Roundup

You know Twilight‘s this weekend, right? Yes!   Reptar‘s apparently having some trouble with the band’s stream that we (and a ton of others) posted yesterday. Things will be sorted soon. Maybe there was a fire, fire, in their house… If you still wanna hear it (I can hear it!), there’s a few vids of […]

Wanna Hear the New Reptar Album?

Reptar is streaming all of Body Faucet starting today. I’m really interested in hearing people’s reactions to it, especially since most of y’all reading this have been around since pre-Reptar times. I will say that I’m glad “Houseboat Babies” made the cut. Been listening to that jam for a while now. So, opinions? We’ll give […]

CD Review: Kater Mass

BY CHRIS GUNNELLS   Punk rock should have no boundaries and with this album there are none. Every song should be surprising, either good or bad, the tracks should keep the listener on their toes. A well-balanced blend of all types of punk rock is what KaterMass offers up on this album and it works […]

Athens Music News Roundup

The deadline for the Alice in Chains guitar raffle that benefits the Clarke County Mentor Program has been moved to June 23rd. Even if you’re not all that fond of the band, the program is awesome. Go buy a ticket at Wuxtry. Apparently the Melting Point has gotten some new items on their menu. Let […]
