Live review: The Goat Farm festival

The N.E.C.

Saturday’s festival at The Goat Farm was a great time and a nice representation of the Atlanta music scene I’ve come to know and love in the 13 months since I moved to this city.  The festival itself was also one of the most well run DIY events I’ve ever been to.  It’s hard to find anything wrong with a free event that features 15 bands, free beer, cheap food, and a generous BYOB policy.

As for the music, I’m glad I finally caught All the Saints.  They gave probably my favorite performance of the festival.  I’m also glad I stuck around for Atlas Sound.  I respect Bradford Cox and see why his music appeals to so many people, but I’d never really connected with either Deerhunter or Atlas Sound until Saturday night.  He blew me away.  It was the “eureka!” moment I’ve looked for both times I’ve seen Deerhunter live and every time either of his projects puts out a new record.  I think it’s time to give his body of work another shot.

I’ve written about most of the other bands that played before, and I’m sure I’ll write about many of them again in the future, so I don’t feel the need to go into too much detail.  Most of my favorites delivered:  Lyonnais, Mermaids, Hawks, This Piano Plays Itself.  The Coathangers might have drunkenly whiffed it, but they were down a member anyway.  If Saturday was the only time you’ve seen them, give them another chance.  Sole out-of-towners TV Torso played solid tunes that sounded like classic ’90s indie rock.  Abby Go Go has sounded better and better lately.

That’s pretty much it.  More pictures after the jump.

Artlantis was fun. There were good local bands and plenty of cool art that I couldn’t afford to buy.  More pics and a brief review after the jump.
