Deadly Designs/Athfest

Athens photographer Mike White has posted his photos from this years Athfest. Check out his site DeadlyDesigns.com to take a look. Included are tons of great shots of some of my favorites, We Versus the Shark, Dead Confederate, Twin Tigers, etc. Here are a few that stand out, Deaf Judges, JB of polish sausage fame, and The Black Lips.


This Friday, August 7th, The Rialto Center hosts Exposure, "Atlanta's Biggest Night in Fashion." A bold statement, but it should be exciting none the less due to music from the always on point Klever, and fashion from locals including my friends over at Epidemik Coalition/We are the Process. Here is a sample of what they've got in store along with their friend Megan Huntz.
