LET'S GET FESTY

OK, today is Groundhog’s Day and that means we’re kind of sort of getting closer to Spring. And Spring means everyone in their respective cities decides that it’s time to get together and have lots of bands play and everyone get real drunk during the day. Right? Right. We’ve picked up on two that have really got our guts going. One in Atlanta, and one in Monterrey which might be the most badass thing we’ve ever heard of.

THE ATLANTA MESS AROUND

The Mess Around is put together by Rob’s House and Douchemaster and Triple D’s, so DUH it is going to rule. The festivititititities take place this year from April 23-24 at The Earl, Criminial Records, and Reactionary Records and the initial lineup will probably blow you away.

THE MTYMX ALL AGES FESTIVAL

We mentioned this festival a while back, but we finally got some more details from Todd P about what all’s going down. The party’s going down March 20-22 in Monterrey, Mexico at a drive-in theater [that’s what that photo is up there] 75 bands will play over the 3-days [1/3 of them being from Mexico] and there will be no overlapping sets!! How nuts is this?! You don’t even know the half of it yet, let’s keep going… There will be some onsite camping available as well as discounted hotel rooms AND discounted shuttle buses running 3 times a day between Austin and Monterrey. Oh, and a 3day pass will run you $30. $30!!!! Too good to be true. There are a ton more things to read about this festival, so check it out here.
