Attention south­ern-based schlock fiends — here is a sub-cul­tur­al event you will not want to miss.  The Starlight Six Drive-In, locat­ed in Atlanta, Georgia, will be stag­ing their year­ly “Drive Invasion” event on October 10th.  For those not in the know, this event is a cel­e­bra­tion of retro cul­ture than encom­pass­es a vin­tage car show, a con­cert fes­ti­val and an all-night line­up of gen­uine dri­ve-in movies.

The gates open at 10:00 a.m. and admis­sion is $28 per per­son (kids ages 9 and under get in for $5 each).  Here’s a break­down of what you get for your mon­ey: first­ly, a mas­sive line­up of bands will be play­ing all day, with an empha­sis on rock­a­bil­ly and oth­er roots rock sounds.  The bands per­form­ing this year include such nota­bles as Jason & The Scorchers and The Fleshtones.  There will also be a car show high­light­ing vehi­cles from 1972 and old­er: rat, rod, cus­tom and stock cars will all be fea­tured.  When night falls, a line­up of five clas­sic dri­ve-in faves will unspool on the big screen: Billy Jack, Convoy, The Road Warrior, Cleopatra Jones and Stunt Rock!  There will also be trail­ers and short sub­jects, includ­ing The Three Stooges and Mr. Magoo shorts.
