Oh, wow. Seriously. Roky Erickson & The Explosives absolutely killed it last night. It’s amazing how many half assed rock bands bitch and moan about any little perceived slight and then you’ve got a guy like Roky, who’s been to hell and back, slay a huge crowd at age 61 and be incredible humble and thankful for everything.
Anyway, here’s the lineup for today’s Athens PopFest events. Be there or be gone.
Please note: This will be the last show ever from Boyracer. No, you don’t want to miss it.
Also, at 2:40 PM Tendaberry (pictured above) should be one of the best bands all week. I’m totally excited to see these guys. For cheap comparison imaging Fishbone mixed with Gang Of Four. Oh. Yeah.
