Hey there,
This will be a real quickie. They added an extra day at Aura so I’m leaving in the morning.
We have more out of towners coming through on their way to / from AURA, check them out. Remember they could go to Atlanta but chose Athens instead so lets show them why Athens is so special.
My favorite from last week was JJ Grey & Mofro check it out:

I’m sure I missed some shows. My schedule is 3 days of party and friends in FL then 4 days of music, party and friends at AURA. I know it won’t be easy but I’m up to the task. I really hope someone records the Revivalists, Stokeswood, DBT shows and Jimkata. To hear Jimkata:

I hope to see y’all at the shows.
Peace and Love,
Kurt
