Music This Week Feb 15th thru Feb 21st

Hey there,
This Thurs we have a benefit for the Athens Nurses Clinic and Athens Pride.
We also have the annual return of the Drive-By Truckers with a three night stand. All three shows are a Don’t Miss but Thayer Sarrano is my tie breaker, she doesn’t play often enough and is truly magical.
Also we have the one year anniversary of Hot Corner Hip Hop.
This Wed the Athens Human Rights Committee meeting is at 7:30 pm. We have another fundraiser at the Office Lounge on Tax Day April 15th, more about that next week. Please join us, your input and help is greatly appreciated.
