I'm moving a little slow today. The New West AthFest Kick Off Party was a complete success, however, I am regretting my late night as I try to muster energy to get some work done.
This weekend, the music mania continues. While you may not be able to partake in the festivities, take some time to check out my picks of the LOCAL lineup via the Internets.
Mr. Fonty and I saw Reptar at the 40 Watt a while back, and I wigged out. I had a few too many Hi Lifes and spent the evening demanding he go back stage and sign them on the spot (why he married me, I'll never know). Mr. Fonty didn't heed my requests, and Reptar just finished an album with Ben Allen. Get your dancing shoes on (Yes, I realize these skateboards are not doing any skating and this is just a song with a backdrop):
Centro-matic will be taking the main stage tonight, and while they are from Denton, TX and live in Austin, they visit frequently enough that it feels like they're local Athenians. Fronted by Mr. Fonty friend, Will Johnson, their haunting, mellow music will be the perfect serenade for my already worn out body.
