It's festival season, and two of the biggest and baddest fests of the year take place in our own backyard: The rock-centric Shaky Knees Festival will take over Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park next weekend, May 13–15, with the EDM and hip hop-oriented Shaky Beats Festival to follow May 20–22.
The 2016 Flagpole Athens Music Awards ballot is live, and you can vote right here. Below, check out this year's Music Video nominees:
In February, Athens electropop duo Powerkompany released Fever and Chills, a lush, propulsive follow-up to 2013's I Am More Than This. Today, we're happy to premiere the video for "Like," the album's delicate yet daring seventh track.

As Flagpole's Gordon Lamb reported last month, the Athens PopFest will make a triumphant return in August after nearly five years away. Last week, organizers announced some of the bands that will play the four-day event. The list includes some national heavy-hitters as well as a bunch of local standouts.
Athens-based indie hip hop artist Marshall Moore retired his Hairy Confucius moniker last December, but fret not: Moore is back as The Quiet Pack, and today we're happy to premiere the project's first single, the jazzy, understated "Meet Me On the Astral Plane."

Did the UGA Athletic Association pay a ludicrous amount of money for a 15-minute concert before last Saturday’s G-Day game?
OK, sorry. Now that the bad puns are out of the way, the Macon Telegraph reports that the association paid Atlanta rapper Ludacris $65,000 to perform a medley of hits (including “Stand Up,” “What’s Your Fantasy” and, appropriately, “Money Maker”) before kickoff.
Local post-punk legends Pylon have teamed up with Chunklet founder Henry Owings to issue a vinyl pressing of a live performance from 1983 at Athens' Mad Hatter club, as Pylon frontwoman Vanessa Briscoe Hay told Flagpole back in January.
