Barrence Whitfield is a force of nature, a powerful soul/R&B/garage rock belter and a tireless, animated performer who may well inspire you to wave your hands in the air in your underwear. He’ll lead his backup band the Savages through their first Atlanta show in ages on Saturday, August 25th at the Star Bar. The Woggles and Bad Spell are also playing, with DJ Vikki Vaden (The Fringe Factory) keeping the floor rumbling between sets.
The mysterious Mummies headline the closing night of this year’s Athens Popfest at the Georgia Theatre on Saturday, August 11th. Other choice acts playing the four-night shindig include Guided by Voices, Ex Hex, His Name is Alive, Elf Power, Dean Wareham, The Essex Green and Elekibass.
