This year's festival was amazing! Thanks so much to all the volunteers, vendors, bands, artists, and DHBC for making it possible. The music was amazing, the weather was perfect, the art was beautiful, and tons of people enjoyed themselves. We're looking forward to next year's art and music festival!

Performing Band: Mermaids

Mermaids are perfect summer time music. They sound like a rad beach party with blunts and box wine aplenty.

Check out their tunes here.

Performing Band: Thy Mighty Contract

"Thy Mighty Contract is made up of members of Blame Game, Fagstatic, I Would Set Myself on Fire For You, The Orphins, Narcolepsy, Gold Standard and SIDS. And we may just be awesome."

They are totally totally awesome. Check out easily the best local music video ever made for their song "Conjugal Freelance":

"Conjugal Freelance" by Thy Mighty Contract from Atlanta Stock Footage on Vimeo.

Check out their tunes here.

Performing Band: Lindsay Appel

"As far as sound goes, my blend seems to be rather hard for folks to pin down. In my mind, it's a sultry mix of rock/blues/pop, with a healthy dose of shimmer and *spark*, throw in a dash of cinematic flair + a whole lot of sassafras, and on some sort of primitive level of definition, that equals the music that I write. When the charming likes of my aforementioned guys are added in, the songs motivate foot tappers and hip shakers, I get to stomp around on bigger stages, and the whole shebang gravitates closer to the perpetual music video parade march I've got playing in my head. All in all, a splendid good time!"

Check out her tunes here.

Exhibiting Artist: Ashley Anderson

Rad Threadless submission

Check out more of his work here.

Performing Band: Mule Skinner MacQueen

The lone returning act from Artlantis 2009.

Not much is known about the infamous Mule Skinner. The only documentation of his reckless life is this lone grainy video:

Performing Band: Buffalo Bangers

Lindsey Elcessor (1/4 of Buffalo Bangers) is one of favorite new artists and frequent exhibitor at Beep Beep. We're still confused how you can be so good at two things!

Check out more tunes here.

Exhibiting Artist: Gregor Turk

"The visual work I create primarily incorporates mapping imagery. Utilizing a variety of media, I tend to focus on the fundamental qualities of mapping: the mysteriousness, inherent biases, cultural authoritativeness, and ability to simultaneously represent and distort reality."

Check out more on his website.
