Is this the most heartwarming news we’ve seen all day? Yep. Liam Porter, a seven-year-old boy in Augusta, Georgia, recently received a spanking new 3D-printed stormtrooperRIT arm for his missing part of his left arm, from the 501st Legion, a group of Star Wars enthusiasts who do good in full trooper gear.
Athens, Georgia, heavy metal duo, Jucifer have unleashed a preview of their new album, ЗА ВОЛГОЙ ДЛЯ НАС ЗЕМЛИ НЕТ (There is No Land Beyond the Volga). The song is called Queen of Antlers and is a BRUTAL narrative from the viewpoint of a Soviet female combat soldier in World War II. Not for the faint of heart, but […]
What a shame we missed this one. The 14th Annual Summer Redneck Games — featuring hillbillies from across the south of America — were held recently in East Dublin, Georgia. And the standard of competition this year was particularly high in events that included the Armpit Serenade contest, Bobbin’ for Pigs Feet, and the Mud Pit Belly Flop.

The Futurebirds are an unruly band of boys from Athens, Georgia, but they might as well have been reared in the backwoods of Woodstock by Levon Helm himself. Their debut release, Hampton’s Lullaby, is out on July 13 via Autumn Tone Records.
Athens, Georgia band, Pylon still sound unlike anything else out there. The B-52s and R.E.M. have both stated that Pylon are one of the best bands in America, and listening to DFA’s re-release of Chomp, with its concentrated dose of post-punk, it’s easy to hear why. We have their song, Beep [listen below], available for […]
Georgia artist JTO celebrates wood, horror, and the 1970s in his work. Whether he’s sawing it into pieces to recombine as skulls or strange animals, or drawing sexy ladies, monsters, and arcade games on it with ink, JTO’s touch turns the most boring board into a fascinating object d’art. He also does a rad T-shirt graphic.
This Athens, Georgia-based trio Hola Halo provides enough catchy hooks, swing, and swagger to melt the most expertly-designed of igloos. On their recording Time Out Here, vocalist and keyboardist Shauna Greeson and her bandmates re-work fuzzy, ’70s-inspired love music. But don’t think they can’t play their pop music, too.
Athens, Georgia art rockers Circulatory System have delivered an extraordinary 46-minute album sculpted from five years worth of accumulated sonic experimentation. Signal Morning ricochets across every raw nerve from the poppiest of impulses to the edge of ostensible sanity, without revealing a single cut corner or uninspired change.
Despite their over-the-top rockisms (ridiculously monstrous rigs, smoke machines, and high-wattage light show), Jucifer backs the bombast up with some colon-bursting heaviness. The duo from Athens, Gergia, take 90s-era grrl rawk and combines it with slow, plodding, sludge metal like High on Fire on Vicodin.
