ATLtoDo Weekend Super-Guide

It's the 4th of July on Saturday! That means fireworks, swimming pools, burgers, and cheap beer. To help you plan, here's ATLtoDo from Thursday to Monday! The 4th of July super-guide is here and I am checking out. Have a good holiday!

Thursday, July 2nd

Today is a great day for shows, both Fucked Up and Destruction Unit put on incredibly fun live shows, and that's not even a quarter of the bands playing this evening. If this rain calms down for a moment there's a screening of The Lego Movie in Fourth Ward park, plus another Ladie's Night at the Village Theatre!

It's Vans Warped Tour 2015 today! There's lots of bands playing and it makes me feel old that I barely know any of them any more, but if you're in attendance today make sure to see home-town act Baby Baby play!
