Women are firmly in charge of Athens music. By my unscientific estimation, roughly 98 percent of the most exciting local sounds are being made by females. For proof, check the two-night Chillith Fair, curated by Shade’s Phelan LaVelle, featuring established acts New Sound of Numbers, Sea of Dogs and Erin Lovett, as well as up-and-comers Wanda, Dark Daughter, Jock Gang, Jo RB Jones, Saline and many more. In addition, LaVelle promises “a photo booth, tarot, snacks courtesy of The Grit and hot dogs from Broad River Outpost.” Proceeds from Chillith Fair will benefit the Athens Area Homeless Shelter. Wristbands can be purchased from The Grit and at the venue.
9 p.m. (Fri.), 7 p.m. (Sat.). $10 (wristband). 706-546-5609
