Summer in the city can be a brutal affair, especially in the South. It can get so hot, no one wants to venture out of the house during the day. But when it comes to music, Atlanta's particularly blessed with a smattering of luring outdoor venues from Lakewood Amphitheatre to the Masquerade Music Park, the Botanical Garden all the way on up to Chastain Park. There's no better way to beat the heat than to wait for nightfall to take in a concert, and get a little reckless with a blanket, a cooler and a significant other under the stars.

ATHFEST Athens, Ga.'s annual downtown music blitz is back for an extended weekend of performances by the Black Lips, Dreams So Real, Patterson Hood, Those Darlins, Dead Confederate and scores of others. In addition to the music, there'll be kids workshops, an open-air artist market, and food and drink galore. If you've got family in town and are looking for something to do, or you're just itching to take drive up Ga. 316, there's no better time than AthFest. Thurs.-Sun., June 25-28. $15-$20. www.athfest.com.
