The Grammy-nominated and highly acclaimed duo The Milk Carton Kids will co-headline the outdoor festival along with bluegrass upstarts Elephant Revival. NPR called The Milk Carton Kids, “Gillian Welch and David Rawlings-meet-Simon & Garfunkel with a splash of The Everly Brothers.” The New York Times said, “If Elephant Revival doesn’t make you smile, there’s something wrong with you.” They are supported by the soulful duo Penny & Sparrow. Decatur favorite Eliot Bronson also joins the bill.
From 5 to 11 p.m. the event will be ticketed, with admission restricted to ticket holders. Tickets cost $30 and are available via AmplifyDecatur.org. Premium seating is available for $45; VIP tickets are $100 and include preferred seating, complimentary beverages, and other benefits.
The nighttime festival will include food trucks, craft beer, and more. Re-entry will be permitted, allowing attendees to access Decatur’s award-winning bar and restaurant scene.
The Dammages are now 2 for 2 in Battle of the Bands in 2016. We had the good fortune participating in the Westchester Battle of the Bands at the Avondale Cinema on May 6th with a guest panel including Shawn Mullins, Michelle Malone, Decatur’s Sydney Rhame and Mark Trojanowski (Sister Hazel). As expected Tammy Dammann lit up the stage with her high powered vocals.

The Dammages were named winners of the Battle of the Bands at Smith’s Olde Bar on January 25th. The event raised money for PAWS Foundation. We had a blast playing to a packed house and were happy to raise money for the cause.
