After meticulous restoration, the Buckhead Theatre celebrates its one-year anniversary in a weekend onslaught of electric and eclectic talent that embraces the unalloyed musical heritage of the Southeast. Friday night?s festivities start at 7 p.m. inside Buckhead?s scenic Spanish-Baroque galley, where seminal Atlanta guitar-slingers Drivin? N' Cryin? headline an evening of unimpeachable anthems that make fists pump hard enough to give the atmosphere a black eye. Saturday, the party moves outside from 1 p.m. until 11 p.m., where the renowned Athens duo Chickasaw Mudd Puppies hitches a sonic ride across melodious swamps, spearheading 13 bands and 10 hours of family-friendly music, revelry, and architecture appreciation.
