In just its second year, The Wrecking Ball ATL has announced a lineup that is unique among the increasingly homogeneous summer music festivals. Dealing in punk, post punk, post hardcore, classic alternative, emo, and pretty much every other kind of angry guitar-based rock goodness, the August 12-14th event will feature reunions from Thursday, Ranier Maria, Piebald, The Promise Ring, Milemarker, and Hey Mercedes, a farewell show from Motion City Soundtrack, rare sets from Drive Like Jehu and The Julie Ruin, and, and…I could go on and on. Actually, I will… Dinosaur Jr.! Bully! Holy crap, Ceremony is playing! Deafheaven…I want to see Deafheaven. L7? I haven’t seen them in like 25 years! (They smelled bad, like really, really, really, bad. Seriously, bad.) Mothers? Yep. Damn, this lineup is legitimately bad ass. Wait, Quicksand is playing?? Seriously? 5 stages at The Masquerade are going to be rocking.
Hey, just check it out yourself:
