Athens PopFest 2010 to feature Mission of Burma, The Wedding Present, Oh-OK

Athens PopFest 2010

College-rock fans have good reason to gravitate toward Athens, Ga.,  later this summer: The 2010 installment of Athens PopFest will feature headlining sets by Mission of Burma and The Wedding Present — which will play 1989’s Bizarro in its entirety — plus performances by Dead Milkmen singer Joe Jack Talcum and the reunited Oh-OK, the early ’80s act featuring Lynda Stipe, sister of R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe.

The festival runs Aug. 10-14, and also features appearances by Elephant 6 vets The Apples in Stereo, E6 offshoot Circulatory System and a reunion of the short-lived ’90s indie-pop act Go Sailor. For a full lineup and ticket infomation, go here.
