On August 8th and 9th we were able to drive down to Atlanta for Wrecking Ball. Obviously I was expecting it to be a great time, but I wasn’t sure what to expect venue-wise. Split into two levels with the downstairs being Hell and the upstairs being Heaven, The Masquerade was such an enjoyable venue to be at am I’m honestly bummed that it’ll be closing because I’d like to be able to go back. The smaller outside stage was Purgatory and the larger stage was Masquerade Music Park which both always had a crowd despite the intense heat.

When Wrecking Ball got announced back on April 1st I thought for sure it was the most cruel April Fools joke ever. Here we are just days away from the festival and it is more than real. The organizers of Wrecking Ball have put together one of the most stacked lineups this scene has seen with plenty of bands that we never thought we would be able to cover. Read after the jump for a quick rundown of who we’re anticipating seeing in Atlanta.
We recently had the chance to head out to Motion City Soundtrack’s 10 year anniversary tour for their seminal record, Commit This To Memory. They brought out some great support and provided Nashville with quite the evening. Read all about it after the jump!
