Sufjan might be cancelled...
But there are still some killer bands to see tonight to patch your disappointment. Dead Confederate out of Athens, Georgia have been touring non-stop and gaining fans who are eagerly awaiting their upcoming album slated to be released in early 2008. Before you throw the label of a Southern Rock band at them you better hunker down for a listen. Drawing on their admiration for Radiohead, Pink Floyd and Music Hates You they are a band Athens should be proud of for taking a different route with a sound that is remains true to the garage rock and roll they adore. They remain true to their inspiration, creating a full, loud sound without including the cowbell, banjo, tambourine or moonshine. Slide guitar-however, is present. Opening for local band The Head Set you should definitely make a point to get there early to check out one of the most talked about bands from this years' CMJ festivities.
