HANDS DOWN, Diarrhea Planet’s Stopover gig was one of the festival’s all-time best. Upgraded from their 2013 Taco Abajo fest gig to The Jinx headlining stage, the room was packed as packed as the stage itself, as the Nashville band’s six members and army of guitars rocked in unison and thrilled the house.
The stage upgrade was a necessity, seeing as how the band’s gained a ferocious following in the past couple of years: it’s a notoriously joyous live show, appealing to fans of classic rock, metal, power-pop, punk, and folks who just love good, solid entertainment.
Diarrhea Planet had such a good time at Stopover, they’re heading back to The Jinx on their massive fall tour. Athens punk scorchers Burns Like Fire join the bill. Get there early—this one’s guaranteed to sell out.
Thursday, September 17, doors at 9 p.m., bands at 10 p.m., $10
