A local tradition since 2007, Athens Face/off has become an institution that has brought together musicians from across genres, age groups, and social circles. The premise is this: the names of dozens of Athens musicians are thrown into a hat, drawn in threes, and then notified of the results. Each of these trios–twenty-five groups in all, often comprised of strangers–will then have one month to prepare a ten minute set of music. Original material, cover songs, performance art–anything goes. Twenty-five bands each playing their first and last shows, all in one night!

This year’s lineup includes members of::: Of Montreal, Incendiaries, Quiet Hooves, NEVER, Elf Power, Basshunter 64, the Fuzzlers, So It Goes, Grass Giraffes, Supercluster, Eureka California, Moths, the Decorations, Bubbly Mommy Gun, Gimme Hendrix, Boycycle, Nutritional Peace, Titans of Filth, Nevada Gas Trio, Crun Pun, Kater Mass, Bit Brigade, Smoke Dog, Viking Progress, Casper & the Cookies, Werewolves, Grogus, Mouser, James Husband, Chamber Music, Chrissakes, Olivia Tremor Control, Venice is Sinking, the New Sound of Numbers, the Gerbils, Space Trucks, Wade Boggs, Nightingale News, Bird Names, Slaw & Order, Tater Zandra Zandra, El Hollin, BombsBombsBombs, Koko Beware, Suspect Raptor, Glow Studios, Asher Armstrong, Boulevard +++ MORE!

Athens Face/off will be a benefit for Whatever It Takes! From their website: “Whatever It Takes seeks to ensure that every child in Athens-Clarke County will graduate from a post-secondary education. We, along with our partners, will accomplish this through emphasizing early intervention, recognizing that parents are a child’s first and most important teachers, focusing resources in a limited geographic area, identifying and training neighborhood leaders, setting high expectations for all children, creating a culture of success, and using data to direct to policy.”

UPDATE: Here it is folks. Twenty-six new bands playing their first and possibly last shows in one night. Some ridiculous combinations in this one. Band names will be added as they are received. Thanks to everyone participating!
