Here’s a little something to break you out of the mid-summer live-music doldrums. Live Wire hosts a two-day festival Friday and Saturday featuring a whole bunch of area jam, funk and electronic acts, including recent Flagpole Athens Music Award winners The Orange Constant, as well as Voodoo Visionary, Saturn Valley, Funk You, Nifty Earth, Partials and many more. The whole thing’s hosted by Athens-based jam band Universal Sigh, which also headlines Friday evening. Along with the tunes, the venue promises “food trucks, dancers, live painters, yogis” and more. A two-day pass is $10. A “pre-party” Thursday night will feature Florida’s Savants of Soul and locals Fat Neptune and Kwazymoto.
