Man, it’s hard to believe the Atlanta Mess-Around is already turning six. And yet here we are with the first performances less than a week away in what promises to be one of the best Mess-Arounds yet. The festival has always been a great place for punk and garage fans to catch classic acts alongside some of our city’s best, and this year is no different with established heroes like the Spits and the Marked Men sharing the stage with our very own the Coathangers, GG King, Barreracudas, Predator and more. The two-day fest kicks off on Friday with an early show (doors at 3 pm) at 529 before things move over to the Earl for the remainder of the evening. Ditto for Saturday’s performances, although doors open an hour earlier (2 pm) for those who want to maximize their band-watching over the weekend. Full festival passes for $45 are still available, as are tickets to individuals shows. You can find more details in the listings below.
