Flagpole Athens Music Awards Show

First and foremost: Flagpole‘s annual celebration of local music takes place once again at the beautiful and historic Morton Theatre, which is a very old and very fragile building, so y’all heathens behave yourselves. Now that that’s said, check out that lineup! T. Hardy Morris, Jubee and the Morning After and Dream Boat will regale us with live tunes, as will two all-star tribute bands: Victrola Rotor Oilmen, which may or may not actually be the Olivia Tremor Control (it is), will honor the memory of Bill Doss, and the aptly named Silver Fox will do the same for Craig Lieske. Plus: an elaborate stage play straight out of local filmmaker Brett Vaughn’s warped mind, surprise presenters and more. See the list of performers and finalists, and buy tickets here.

Follow Flagpole on Twitter, where we’ll be live-tweeting the winners and Awards Show highlights all evening long!
