Cathead Vodka

Gold Sponsor

About The Company:

The term “Cathead” is a compliment in Mississippi, first coined back in the day by blues musicians as a nod to artists they respect. Mississippi artists and musicians went on to use “Catheads” in many forms of folk art, as a way to pay the rent and share their legacies.

 

Mississippi repealed prohibition in 1966, the last state to do so. Forty four years later, lifelong friends and blues fans founded Cathead Distillery. Cathead is proud to be the first and oldest distillery in the state of Mississippi.

 

Mississippi is the proud state where blues music began, a genre that has deeply influenced all forms of American music. We work hard to bring honor to the meaning of Cathead through our philanthropic support of live music and artisans alike. Cathead also donates a portion of proceeds to nonprofits that contribute to the region’s abundant arts and culture. Cathead Distillery is an event-driven facility and a place for both locals and tourists to enjoy spirits tastings, live music, community, and a cold beer

Personally, the Market Manager of Georgia has many friends and family members in the Atlanta Burlesque Community, and wants to give back to an organization that does so much to make all feel welcome and loved.

About The Company:

**PUNK ROCK FEMINISM UNDERGROUND CINEMA RULES OKAY**

Gonzoriffic began its life as a Psychotronic-inspired cult film zine in 1996 and moved to the web in 1998, becoming one of the first review sites for low-budget and microcinema films. Early experiments with film making began in 2001 and 2002, and by 2003, the focus shifted completely to movie production.

 

Based in Athens, GA and comprised of local performers, musicians and visual artists, Gonzoriffic made its public debut at the 40 Watt Club in 2004 with a midnight screening of their no-budget campfest "PsychoVixens". They have since gone on to play dozens of festivals both regionally and worldwide, producing over 100 films including several of which are currently available via Amazon On Demand.

 

Why is Gonzoriffic supporting FATlanta? Because fat is the new punk!
