Last year about this time, I complimented the Westobou Festival for successfully booking five days' worth of acts that, I felt, would go a long way toward establishing trust. I stand by those words. After this year's festival, however, I feel I should clarify.
Amanda Sudano and Johnnyswim perform for the 2013 Westobou Festival.
The five-day festival highlights visual art, music, film, dance and literature.
I sought out Starkey Flythe's work because he was a writer, from Augusta, writing about things that felt closer to my frame of reference than "Tobacco Road."
A combination of locals and legends, of fine art explorations and pop culture interaction, this year's Westobou Festival lineup has been built with attracting the greatest common denominator.
Our 2013 Arts Preview includes everything from dance and music to theater and art.
