Music This Week Aug 26th thru Sept 9th

Hey there,
Sorry I had too many things to do last week and didn’t send out the weekly email.
I will make this email cover the next two weeks since I know I won’t have time next week. Warning: The Athens music scene is very dynamic and bands, times and places are subject to change and I won’t be in town to make changes or corrections.
I’m leaving for a 4 day festival on Fri then heading out the following week for Lockn’ another 4 day festival in VA. I may leave for the west coast (WA) after that so I may not be back in town until after Bear Creek in Nov.
Please don’t forget the Athens Human Rights Festival fundraiser is this Fri at Terrapin Beer Co. from 5:30 until 7:30. Rollin’ Home, one of my favorite bands and a long time supporter of AHRF will be performing. A Don’t Miss. Come out get some fresh air, grab a beer and make a donation. Also support the Dawgs. This is the opening of tailgate season.
I have posted both the Gov’t Mule shows, Jerry Day ATL, Jerry Jam, Cosmic Charlie and a few others. Check out 2nd night 2nd set track 3 Gov’t Mule, my favorite of the Mule shows. BTW Warren stayed late after both shows talking outside with the fans, a real class act. You don’t often see musicians as well established as he is taking time to meet and talk with their fans.
Tonight (Tues 8/26) is a benefit for a good friend and great musician Fester Hagood. He had shoulder surgery and suffered nerve damage and temporarily can’t play his guitar. Please attend and support a great person and help cover his medical expenses.
Nowhere Bar 9 p.m. $10. 706-546-4742 Tonight
ARM AID A benefit for Tuesday Night Confessional founder Fester Hagood, featuring music from Levi Lowrey, Betsy Franck, Danny Carter and Eric Hutchens (of Bloodkin), the Redstone Ramblers and The Salt Flats.

Music This Week Aug 6th thru Aug 12th

Hey there,
Please save the date, Aug 29th 5 PM at Terrapin Beer Co. We are having a fundraiser for the 37th Athens Human Rights Festival. Rollin’ Home http://www.reverbnation.com/rollinhome will be playing so come on out for a great show and help support a great cause.
I heard a lot of Grateful Dead music during the two days of Jerry Day festivals last week. I may be biased as they are good friends but I think Cosmic Charlie smoked them all at their show at GATH last Fri. I recorded almost all the Jerry Days and of course the Cosmic Charlie show so you can decide for yourself. It will be awhile as I am so far behind in posting but I’ll put them at the top of the queue. I have dramatically cut back my recording schedule but I have over 450 hours of music backlog. I have also posted my 400th band. I have posted the Girls Rock Athens Finale, it’s a great cause and a lot of fun.
This weekend is the Danielsville Broad River Watershed Association Benefit. https://www.facebook.com/events/1443759669229040/
A sad note, Nic Wiles played in his last Blues Jam before he leaves for Nashville. He was there from the start of this monthly fixture in the Athens music landscape. His leaving Athens highlights the need for greater support of our music community. I’m doing what I can, y’all please do what you can to help support our musicians.
Here is something fun but it highlights the fact that even on a farm in Kansas musicians can draw a bigger crowd than we can in Athens:
