Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Mothers

To commemorate the opening of its new downtown Athens location, multinational hipster haven Urban Outfitters has partnered with the Slingshot Festival, Nuçi’s Space and Creature Comforts to put on a blowout bash in the brewery’s parking lot. The show is headlined by acclaimed Portland, OR psych-pop band Unknown Mortal Orchestra and also features local standout Mothers. The free drinks will flow until they don’t, and a selection of local “makers and doers” will display their wares indoors. To claim your ticket to the all-ages event, download the UO app on your smartphone and show it to an employee at the Clayton Street store.
