Three days in Atlanta, Georgia’s Central Park, was 2018’s Shaky Knees Festival. The festival should be claimed as the sanctuary for bands.

If you were not aware with this year’s Coachella, it was well known the lack of bands and indie rock was dwindled. Particularly the line-up's domain of genres of Hip-Hop, Soul and electric dance music were the majority.

Good thing, there was Shaky Knees advocating three-days of diverse artists and musicians, standing out on its own, bestowing a platform for the love of all shapes of rock and roll.

Day one kicked off with David Byrne, Jack White, Courtney Barnett, Japandroids, Franz Ferdinand and many others. This ensemble kicked off to a tremendous start. Fans get to hear Barnett’s forthcoming album Tell Me How You Really Feel; Jack White’s catalogue was presented playing off various projects. And yes, Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Byrne played Talking Head classics like “Once in A Lifetime” and “This Must Be the Place.

Day two kept the momentum having Queens of the Stone Age, Cake, Parquet Courts, The Distillers and Andrew W.K.There was a lot to see in day two and one of the favorites was Grammy winning The War On Drugs, playing off five tracks from the award winning album A Deeper Understanding.

The last day, the big fat cherry it was Tenacious D, The National, Alvvays, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweatsand, with many others. Tenancious D’s Jack Black and Kyle Gass announce to the audience there will be a sequel to their cult classic The Pick of Destiny. Also, big ups for playing “Fuck Her Gently” and “Dio.”

For honorable mentions: Chicano Batman, Torres, Parcels, Post Animals, *Repeat Repeat, Greta Van Fleet and The Frights, give them a listen sometime.

The Shaky Knees Festival is delight while in times of festival season. It's an event for encouragement to bring talented, bands and artists to proclaim themselves in a major competitive market.

Shaky Knees Festival takes place annually in Atlanta, Georgia and was founded in 2013 by Tim Sweethood. If you missed out on this year’s Shaky Knees Festival, catch them next year because they do justice and appreciate the diverse world of rock and roll.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

6618

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
