Calling all music lovers... Tasty World will host the AthFest CD Release Show this Friday night! This is a FREE show with performances by Ken Will Morton Band, The Incredible Sandwich and Pride Parade.

The 2010 AthFest CD will be available at the show for a special price before the official release date of May 4. The CD includes 16 diverse tracks of high energy rock, quirky pop, soulful Americana, jam rock and more, representing a fine cross-section of the Athens music scene.

This year's CD includes bands like The Whigs, Charlie Garrett Band, Timber, The Incredible Sandwich, Packway Handle Band and Modern Skirts, to name a few. Most of the tracks are previously unreleased. For a full track listing, click here.

At the show, there will be an announcement by AthFest founder/director Jared Bailey beginning the eBay auction for a Gretsch guitar signed by Drive-By Truckers. Proceeds from the sale will benefit AthFest, Inc. educational programs in local schools such as AthFest InSchool, AthFest AfterSchool and Keys for Kids.

Can't make it to the Release Party? The album will be available in select stores, online at and at online digital music stores worldwide. The CD will also be available at AthFest 2010 - the Athens Music and Arts Festival - which will be held in downtown Athens June 23 - 27.
