Athens Face/Off
Both a social and sonic experiment, Athens Face/Off was launched as a way to motivate musicians to play new songs with new people. 60 local musicians have been randomly assigned into trios and presented with a challenge: spend exactly one month preparing an original set of material with their new bandmates! On the night of Face/Off, these 20 new groups will perform their first and possibly last show together using a three-stage rotation for non-stop sound.

Featuring members of…Ancient Whales, Antlered Aunt Lord, Big Morgan, Blue Bodies, Blunt Bangs, Circulatory System, Civils, Classic City Jukebox, Cult of Riggonia, Daffodil, Dream Culture, Dead Neighbors, Einschlagen, The Electric Nature, Emileigh Ireland, Eureka California, Family and Friends, Feather Trade, Gary Eddy, Grand Vapids, Grape Soda, Hembree & the Satan Sisters, The Hernies, Hope for Agoldensummer, Hot Fudge, Hunger Anthem, Immaterial Possession, Juan de Fuca, Lea Lea, Lex Callahan, Lydia Sera, Manray, Mother the Car, Nihilist Cheerleader, Outersea, Realistic Pillow, Roadkill Ghost Choir, Severe Blush, Shade, Tabloid, T.S. Woodward, White Rabbit Collective, Wieuca…and more!

This year’s proceeds will benefit Nuci’s Space, Girls Rock Athens & We’re hEAR For You.
