BRIAN AND CHRIS, DAVEY WILLIAMS -- California electronics enthusiasts Brian and Chris utilize everything they can in their sound collage outfit, bringing to mind the cut-up antics of Negativeland or the electro-homemade sounds of Voice Crack. Birmingham guitar deconstructivist Davey Williams will be joining them, matching his plinks for their plonks. It should be interesting to see Williams pairing with an electrical act, rather than with a saxophonist, as we've seen him with several times this year. Eyedrum (Khalid)
ILLUMINATI -- This decent, if fairly pedestrian, outfit from D.C. makes its Atlanta debut. Alt-rock in the Red Hot Chili Peppers/Jane's Addiction mold with occasional hip-hop leanings, their claim to fame is having recorded with NBA star Walt Williams. Somber Reptile (Sarig)

Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
