Love Bombs Hit Atlanta!!

Student Career Alternatives(SCAP) yearly awareness/fundraiser was a big success on several levels::))

Level One: The turn out was awesome! Managed to pull in several distinctly different crowds in multiple locations. There were a ton of fresh faces! SCAP organizers did an amazing job promoting the show.

Level Two: We had hoped that the crowd would be younger this year. It was! So many high school students came out thanks to all the work Moondogs, Paper Champion, Nina, Hunter, and others did. Although I'm actually a fan of what some call the young radical usual suspects, and I'm comfortable in a crowd full of friendlies, it was really great to have SOOO many new people

Level Three: The music was really great. I go to so many shows where you have three or four acts playing to the same genre, it's nice to have some cross pollination in the Atlanta music scene.

Check them out for yourself:
Criminal Records Bands:
Paper Champion

5-Spot Bands:
The Back Pockets
Dark Dark Dark

Thanks everyone who came out! Thanks everyone who worked to make it happen!!!
