This year’s Nophest looks like it’s going to be amazing. I mean, last year was awesome, but this year might just top it.
If you haven’t heard of it, it’s 80 bands in four days at venues in East Atlanta Village, including the Earl, 529, the Basement at Graveyard Tavern, East Side Lounge and Joe’s Coffee.
You may have heard of some of these bands. (If you read this blog, at least a few should stand out.) Check the full schedule here.
I’m excited to be pulling double duty this year. This Thursday, I’ll be opening the East Side Lounge stage at 9 p.m. performing an acoustic set of my solo stuff. (And I’m really excited to finally see Brother Hawk later at the same venue.)
So much good stuff crammed into one weekend. Capillaries and Demonaut are both playing Thursday night.
R_Garcia is playing Friday night, and so are Birmingham’s The Grenadines and The Great Book of John.
Saturday includes Swank Sinatra, Jungol, The Sneaky Hand and the return of Nerd Parade. Also, Signs of Iris, Toy Devils and New Terminus.
And Sunday, Gun Party is joining a bunch of bands on the Joe’s Coffee stage.
So many bands; so little time. Advance tickets are still on sale. You can get them here and save some money.
