This article continues my writeup of AthFest, an Athens festival held each year to benefit Athfest Educates, a nonprofit that promotes arts and music education in Clarke County public schools.
I had several errands to run before work on Monday, so unfortunately I was only able to catch two bands on Sunday, but at least they were both great!
Headed down to the Hull Street outdoor stage for Five Eight first. I really enjoyed their set last year, and this year’s was another hit. They had a huge crowd and it was great to see them getting so much appreciation. The frontman’s enthusiasm is contagious and I love watching them play.
Drivin N Cryin closed out the festival on the main Pulaski Street stage. They really gave festival goers their money’s worth, playing for over an hour and a half! I saw lots of dancing children in the crowd, great to see people of all ages enjoying live outdoor music. Athfest is always a blast and I look forward to it every year.
