To kick off our reboot of Flagpole's Athens-music video series Behind the Scene, we invited local hip-hop phenom and newly elected Athens-Clarke County Commissioner Mariah Parker, aka Linqua Franqa, to join us for a very special holiday episode.

When Cartter Fontaine from Dirtty Toe Productions and I set out to conduct the first few interviews for our aptly-titled blog series, Behind the Scene, we weren’t sure how they would turn out. We’re used to covering musicians here at Flagpole, but when our editor gave us the go-ahead to pull back the curtain, we were grateful for the opportunity if unsure how to approach it exactly.
We love writing about bands, but there’s another story to be told about our town’s scene, and we hope our series contributes meaningfully to this telling. At first, it was a work in progress; usually, we would show up to speak with one of our subjects and tell them that we were in the midst of an experiment to figure out how to best profile some of Athens music’s finest offstage supporters.
More after the jump.
