Hank Williams Jr

Hank Williams Jr.

Son of legendary country music singer Hank Williams, Hank Williams Jr has arguably equaled his fathers influence in his own right. As Hank puts it “I play a few shows a year…when I want, where I want, and for who I want”. Atlanta is fortunate to have the artist perform in our town every few years as he brings his entertaining blend of southern rock, outlaw country, and traditional country influence performing exceptional shows that demonstrate the artists depth and breadth as a musician and songwriter.

Wolf @ Progpower USA XIV

Niklas StÄlvind

Founded in Sweden in 1995, Heavy Metal powerhouse Wolf makes their USA debut during Progpower USA XIV in Atlanta, Ga. Bringing elements of now classic metal (think Judas Priest) and Speed Metal (think Motorhead), Wolf was one of those annual great discoveries for me that I never would have had without the existence of this festival. They slayed it during their midday set.
