Antigone Rising To Play Athens Street Fest

Jul 9, 2013

When Long Island-based group Antigone Rising takes to the stage this Saturday at the Athens Street Festival, the band will perform songs from a forthcoming EP that has the band moving in a country/rock direction. After two decades together, the group has earned garnered praise from the critics and a fervent fan following forged by years on the road. Singer and bassist Kristen Ellis-Henderson says the band’s new single, “That Was The Whiskey,” was born out of a wild show in a Florida bar.

Kristen Ellis-Henderson and Antigone Rising perform at the Athens Street Festival at 6:30.
