Music This Week Feb 6th thru 12th

Hey there,
Sorry this is so late I have been online trying to find parts to fix my recorder (it was knocked over and broken last night at Tues. Confessional). Does anyone have a broken Zoom H2 I can use for parts?
Yet another reason we are blessed to live in Athens, a lot of the bands use Athens as a warm up for festivals at Suwanee in FL. The GATH is hosting a lot of bands I’ll be hearing next week at AURA. http://www.auramusicfestival.com/ Anyone needing a ride please let me know.
A reminder the 35th Athens Human Rights Festival is coming up May 4th & 5th. Anyone wanting to help please go to http://athenshumanrightsfest.org/ or contact me.
I’m sending out a second email today with subject line: Kenosha Kid + Horns From Hell = Hendershot’s Residency March 18-23. Just a heads up to save the dates, I’ll surely let you know as we get closer to the date. Don’t miss these shows.
