Akademia Brewing Co. will host 59 X Fest, an all-day music festival presented by 59 X Records, an Atlanta-based indie label focusing on punk and rock subgenres. The festival will feature shows from 59 X artists, including Way Past Cool, a new local punk outfit; Mishapen, an Atlanta alternative rock band blending grunge, punk and hardcore; and Viper Club, a modern, cinematic rock band. Also playing are punk rock group Noise Mountain, The Killakee House, who label themselves as “Atlanta denim ashtray punk,” and local four-piece hard rock band Rosie & The Ratdogs. Headlining are The Carolyn, a sleep-deprived punk trio from Atlanta, and punk rockers Burns Like Fire, who have teamed up with Akademia to devise their own brew, Always In Trouble, a Mexican lager. Burns Like Fire will be debuting an album of the same name, and The Carolyn will celebrate the release of its own album, The Rhythm of My Own Decay.
