The first day of the Fifth Annual Shaky Knees Festival is a wrap! Check out the slideshow for a recap of all the bands that jammed out in Centennial Olympic Park on Friday. 

Marion Fregeac

Fantastic Negrito is best known to the world as the first-ever winner of NPR Music's Tiny Desk Contest. But the blues musician has been working for years to get wide recognition. The next step will be a performance at the Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta this Saturday. We talk with Fantastic Negrito about his rise from the ground up.

The Electric Philosophy Of Musician Ron Gallo

Ron Gallo doesn't care if you like him. The Nashville musician has bigger things to worry about, such as the absurdity of human nature and the question of greater purpose in the universe. He channels those thoughts with quick, punky energy on-stage. Ron will bring his philosophically driven jams to the Shaky Knees Festival this Sunday, so we caught up with him in the studio.

Josh Telles

Korean-American indie rock band Run River North will perform at the Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta this weekend. The band is currently touring to promote their latest album, "Drinking From A Salt Pond." We catch up with lead vocalist Alex Hwang and guitarist Daniel Chae ahead of their Shaky Knees show this Saturday.

All this week, we present the producers' favorites. Each day was programmed by a different "On Second Thought" producer and today, Trevor Young chooses his favorite music segments:

First, bassist Stanley Clarke is a legend in jazz, a pioneer of the slap-bass sound. He’s performed on more than 40 albums and has won four Grammys. Clarke is back on tour and we spoke to him earlier this month before his concert at the Variety Playhouse in Atlanta.

The 2016 Shaky Knees Music Festival brought big names in music to Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta. Headliners included Jane's Addiction, Florence + The Machine, and My Morning Jacket as well as acts with strong Georgia connections like Baroness and Phosphorescent.

Huey Lewis and the News had a formula in mind when they self-produced their 1983 benchmark album, "Sports." 

“It was a radio world back then… so we aimed every one of those tunes at radio because we knew we needed a hit,” Lewis said. “Now when I listen to it, it sounds exactly like what it was: a collection of singles.”

Julien Baker

The first Sunday musician was easily the most emotionally dense. Julien Baker, who we interviewed with "On Second Thought," gave an utterly gut-wrenching performance. Given the somber nature of her writing style and character, it was to be expected. But man, when you hear her voice in full force, it is something else entirely.
