“Every year AthFest takes over Athens, GA with events on outdoor stages all around the downtown area. This is where all the so-called popular bands play at the bars and clubs in town. A**Fest is the house show party where the rest of us weirdos are! All up inside the underside of Athens!” This is the description for A**Fest, an event which seems to stand antithetical to the goings-on of AthFest. It may come as no surprise that this event is organized by JOKERJOKERtv, an independent live-streaming network showcasing “underground weirdos and artists, music performances, short film, burlesque, skits, indie toy reviews and more.” That’s quite the list, and the live show promises just as much variety. Over three days, attendees will be treated to 25 individual performances, with music ranging from singer-songwriter to noise and punk. There will also be art exhibits and camping available for attendees. Check Flagpole’s live music calendar for daily lineups.
