Athens Power Rankings for the Week of Feb. 3

Welcome to Athens Power Rankings. In the spirit of sports rating systems, through painstaking analysis, we rank the top movers and shakers in the Classic City each week. Who’s hot? Who’s not? Find out below.

1. Snow

No, not this guy:

We mean the cold, white stuff that fell from the sky last week. Remember? Maybe not, because it’s been like 70 degrees for the past few days. Anyway, it was kind of a big deal.

2. Jucifer

The sludge-metal nomads return to their former home of Athens next week—and will grace Flagpole‘s cover—armed with a Russian-influenced new album.

3. Bain Mattox

Bain’s Normaltown empire continues to grow. He has plans to expand Normal Bar and open a pizzeria at the old Pizza Hut on the corner of Prince and Oglethorpe avenues. (Let’s hope it serves stuffed crust.)

4. Kai Riedl and Eric Marty

They’ve got big plans for the second Slingshot festival coming up in March. Click here for deets. 

5. Rachel Watkins

The District 3 Athens-Clarke Commission candidate has a website.
