The third installment of the annual Fringe Binge summertime music festival returns to the Star Bar on Fri., July 17 and Sat., July 18 with an armada of local and international punk and power pop acts taking over for an entire weekend of debauchery and depravity. Fifteen+ bands including Paul Collins Beat, Poison Arrows, Predator, GG King, Abby Go Go, Giant Tigers, Electric Cycles, Peter Stubb and more play the main room and the downstairs lounge. The cause: Nothing more than a mission to have a good time on a couple of sweltering summer nights in Atlanta.

3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
Their fees were onerous, to say the least. $16 per ticket for "convenience," and it's…
That poster is for the Iggy Pop show on March 11 1983 @ 688 club…
