ATHFEST -- photo and blurb by Andre Gallant (Athens B-H)

                         Locally grown act The Darnell Boys, comprised of a few brothers and their friends, kicked it all off, bringing their Delta blues take on every facet of Southern folk music. The Darnell Boys were all raised in Athens and attended various high schools, but one brother was missing tonight. He was on his way to India.   Well, if you have to miss AthFest, might as well leave the country.

Flagpole -- Gabe Vodicka -- ATHFEST picks


The Darnell Boys

What better way to start off AthFest weekend than by enjoying some damn fine fingerpickin’? You know it’s gonna be hot and sweaty out there; the good vibes—and the beer—will most undoubtedly be flowing by five o’clock. TDB’s earnest blend of old-timey country and blues is everything great about Athens’ glorious summers rolled into one scruffy family band. (Pulaski Street Stage, 5 p.m.)
