The third installment of the annual FRINGE BINGE summertime music festival returns to the Star Bar with an armada of local and international punk and power-pop acts for an entire weekend of debauchery and depravity. Fifteen-plus bands, including Paul Collins Beat, Stolen Hearts, Poison Arrows, Barreracudas, Predator, Pinche Gringo, GG King, Abby Go Go, Giant Tigers, Electric Cycles, Peter Stubb and more take over the main room and the downstairs lounge. The cause: nothing more than a mission to have a good time on a couple of sweltering summer nights in Atlanta. $10-$20. Fri.-Sat., 7 p.m. 437 Moreland Ave. 404-681-9018. www.starbaratlanta.com.
