Ozzfest, Lollapalooza, Warped Tour. HiFi Buys was jammed this summer with kids looking for cheap thrills, loud music, chicks and beer. They could get all that, and for a lot less, at DRIVE-INVASION
. Even reduced to only two days -- over Labor Day weekend -- the event packs a lot of punch. Hard rockin' rebel bands play in the afternoon, groan-and-scream-worthy B-movies play after dark. Throw in a burlesque show, a classic car show, lots of tattoos, barbecue, and a cooler full of beer and Jell-O shooters, and you've got one of the best parties in Atlanta, period.
