This weekend, the Wild Rumpus Parade and Spectacle returns to downtown Athens for a 10th annual edition, inviting Athenians of all stripes and all ages to dress up, howl at the moon and celebrate Halloween for a good cause. (See The Calendar for a full schedule of events.)
Athens band Georgia Dish Boys' sound is familiar yet unorthodox, a viscous blend of alt-country twang, noise-rock squall, outsider folk and Southern gothic allure. On last year's Get Gone, the group led with massive rock hooks and showcased frontman Seth Martin's laryngitic yowl.
Since the release of their first album, Radiation, in 2013, Charleston, SC band Stop Light Observations have made a name for themselves by touring across the country.
As an outlet for songwriter Andy Dixon's sundry creative impulses, Athens band Gumshoe has found itself exploring everything from twangy Americana to soulful stomp to angular indie rock. With his latest album, The Governor's Brother—out Nov. 16—Dixon gets deep, dark and disillusioned as he processes the 2016 election and its unsettling aftermath.
