The Drive-Invasion kicks off its 15th annual end of the summer extravaganza at the Turner Field Green Lot on Saturday, Sept. 6. The all-day festival will feature three B-movie and creature classics, Horror of Party Beach (1964), Jaws (1976), and Mad Doctor of Blood Island (1968), on a 40-foot projector screen.

The family-friendly celebration will honor the American drive-in film culture with a '70s beach theme, a vintage car show hosted by Garage 71 and Grease Inc., and a fully stacked rock 'n' roll lineup guaranteed to arouse any day-drunken stragglers. Bands will perform on two stages and include:
Rocket 350
The Brimstones
Ghost Riders Car Club
Jimmy & the Teasers
Dusty Booze & the Baby Haters
Andrew & the Disapyramids
Cletis & His City Cousins
The Penetrators
Mystery Men?
