Come to AlleGreen Music Festival with us this weekend!

AlleGreen is going down April 22-24 at Durhamtown in Union Point, Georgia!

We're pretty damn excited.

The music starts on Friday, but you can start setting up your campsite on Thursday. Because Mac is hosting trivia at Amici in Covington on Thursday night, we will be arriving on Friday morning.

It's hard to read the smaller names on the lineup poster here, but you can find all of the information about the festival on their website:!

Bonnaroo 2011 Cafe Acts!

While we were at Wanee, Bonnaroo announced the 2011 Cafe acts. We couldn't wait to explore them when we got home!

To most people, Bonnaroo is all about the big names, but "Troo Music Lounge" has actually been one of our most favorite things about Bonnaroo in past years. We've seen a lot of great shows and discovered many of our favorite bands there."Cafe Where?" is also pretty cool.

The cafe acts we've been getting into this year: Gary Clark Jr., Aaron Wood, Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons, Hesta Prynn, Infantree, Aunt Martha, the Band of Heathens, the Black Box Revelation,Walk the Moon, Civil Twilight, and, of course, LIONIZE!!!!

We just wish our friends in the Captain Midnight Band were there :-(

The Music Junkies are going to Wanee Festival!!! leaving at 7 a.m.

It's an awesome festival in Live Oak, Florida. We had a great time last year, so Mac's parents are taking us this year to celebrate Mac's birthday. We will also hopefully be meeting up with Trey Bliss, guitarist of Verge of Bliss, while we are there.

If for some reason you want to read more about the festival and wallow in regret that you didn't hear about it in time, go here:<

But seriously, what an incredible lineup!

We'll see you guys next week!

I'll leave you with some music

New Artist Spotlight: Albatross

Get Out Of My Life - Albatross

Junkies' Description:
Albatross is an Athens, Georgia-based rock band that creates a blend of blues, jam, and funk that comes from the soul. They play shows around Athens (Iris’s hometown) regularly, but they actually caught our ears on Facebook a while back. Albatross’s self-described genre on Facebook is “indescribable jazz/blues/funk/rock,” which I think is pretty accurate. If you must have a comparison, their sound is most similar to Back Door Slam and the Derek Trucks Band, and I can definitely hear the influence of the great Allman Brothers Band. The two live tracks included in the audio player above show you that Albatross can really jam!
If you’re digging their sound, go see them live some time or visit their Facebook and Myspace pages for more music.
Albatross is Dustin Urich on lead guitar and lead vocals, Matt Urich on lead guitar and backing vocals, Drew Hart on bass, and the lineup is completed with Scott Tracy on drums.

New Artist Spotlight: She Might Bite

Audio: Sinister Device

Sinister Device - She Might Bite

Junkies' Description:
The Kimes Sisters, Tara and Courtney, have put together some great tracks with a unique sound. Along with their drummer Kat, they’ve unleashed a blend of alternative folk and dirty garage style blues rock. Most of their tracks are rockin’, but their track “Empty” shows their folk side and shows the world that they can create a beautiful yet haunting song. If you’re a fan of The Kills or Jack White, these three ladies have songs for you that will fit right in with your collection.
