I’ll start with a plea for help. I haven’t found a way to clone myself and have to be in at least two places at once. Does anyone have a recorder available Saturday? I’m scheduled to record Consider the Source and Dumpstaphunk and two on my favorite bands in Athens are playing together the same night, Whisper Kiss and breathlanes are always on my DON’T MISS list and I’m really bummed I have to miss them. Please contact me ASAP if you can loan me a recorder or better yet record their show at Hendershot’s for me. Thanks.
There are a lot of great shows this week which is surprising since it is finals at UGA. There are a lot of great benefits. Nuçi’s Space 3 night Schlitzmas at Flicker has a great lineup each night, Poverty is Real Benefit at 40 Watt not only has a great lineup but also has what has become a rare show, Hope for Agoldensummer. Page no longer lives in Athens so we have the holidays to thank for this reunion with her sister Claire a real DON’T MISS show, There is also a toy drive at Roadhouse and a Beat Cancer Bash at melting Point. Then there is the 4th Annual Strung Out Like the Lights at Christmastime Empty Stocking Fundraiser!
Don’t you just love this town?!

I’m so busy I really haven’t planned out my schedule. I know I’ll be at GATH tonight. I’ll be back there Sat. I’ll be bouncing around town all week as soon as I know the bands schedules better. I’ll also be at the Office Fri for the Empty Stocking fundraiser, that has to be the best lineup of DON’T MISS shows in Athens this week, check it out. I haven’t seen Deja Vu since they closed out the Human Rights Festival last May.
I hope to see y’all at the shows.
Peace and Love,
