Get out there early kiddies. Athens, GA’s Futurebirds will be the first band performing at Zilker and will be gearing it up before noon. The ‘Birds are nothing new to the lofty responsibility of cutting a stage’s ribbon at a major festival after kicking things off in That Tent last month at Bonnaroo in front of an estimated 3,000 early comers (they did not disappoint). Should be a real shit-kicker.
