This year marks year 3 for the Strange Daze Music and Arts Festival. Just a toddler, but toddlers start to get really interesting. So, this is a great age and this year’s festival reflects a renewed focus pertaining to this gratifying, diverse, and saturated music scene of ours in Atlanta. Wait! Listen to this while you read:
This year, I put together a group of bands that really caught my attention throughout 2011. As it goes, these bands fall into several genres, including indie rock, hip hop, blues, experimental, psychedelic, metal, garage rock, and some cross-germinate.
Initially, it was going to be another 2-day fest, but then I nixed that idea. This year was going to be one big party on one fine night. What better place to throw a party than in the cozy quarters of the Old Fourth Ward?
The energy is so right at Noni’s and The Music Room. In a lot of ways, it feels like Lenny’s used to feel…meaning, anything goes. And anything shall go this year at Strange Daze! Especially considering the line-up:
Sneaky Hand, A.Grimes, Spirits and the Melchizedek Children, Order of the Owl, Nomen Novum, Eudora June, New Terminus, Big Heed and Alien, Opposing Suns, Mind Creatures, Curio Museum, and Corner Kid, who is making his much anticipated debut performance at Strange Daze.

It is free to attend Strange Daze. We just ask you to bring the zeal and the zest. The bartenders will handle the rest.
