In honor of the 25th-anniversary reissue of R.E.M.'s landmark album Automatic for the People, the 40 Watt Club will host #Automatic25, a listening and viewing party, this Saturday. We caught up with Jeff Montgomery, the proprietor of local-music respository Athensmusic.net and an organizer of Saturday's event who has helped throw a number of R.E.M. listening parties over the years.
The 2017 Project Pabst festival took place in East Atlanta Village last weekend, featuring a mix of high-profile artists (Iggy Pop, Dinosaur Jr.) and Georgia favorites (Vincas, DiCaprio). Below, check out a selection of Flagpole contributor Mike White's photos from the event:
If there were an award for hardest-working rock band in Athens, it'd surely go to Deep State. The pop-punk four-piece has seemingly remained on the road since releasing the excellent Thought Garden in April, and it's somehow found time to begin prepping another new LP, reportedly titled The Path to Fast Oblivion.
Relatively new Athens project Blanko isn't a band in the traditional sense. Rather, it's an audio-visual outlet for the skewed musings of local songwriter and artist Larson Collier, known for playing with indie rockers Big Morgan.

Local indie-rock stalwarts Elf Power are riding high after releasing Twitching in Time, a career highlight, back in May. Following a summer tour with Tobin Sprout, the band is settling back in to Athens life and ushering in autumn with an animated collage video for Twitching in Time gem "Cycling Aimlessly," which we're pleased to premiere today.
