This year looks like it is going to be another stellar year for music in Athens.
Kicking things off is the Guitar Summit tonight. Tomorrow we celebrate Craig Lieski’s birthday at the 40 Watt with a great show`including Taxicab Verses a 3 year bi-continental project of Jim Wilson’s. I have finally received permission to post 5 of 7 songs I recorded and will have them posted on my web site tonight, check them out, I think it is some of the best original music I heard last year. (actually the 2 I can’t post yet were my favorites, come to the show and hear them live). We also start the year out with a new band Bad Tempered Rabbit debuting Sat check them out at:www.soundcloud.com/badtemperedrabbit We also have the monthly installment of Blues Night w/ Big C on Monday, as always this is a Don’t Miss.
I still haven’t made much progress changing the look and functionality of my web site but I am steadfast in my determination to make it a financially rewarding resource for the musicians in Athens. Any one that would like to help please let me know lets make 2013 a year to be remembered.
Since I think it is never too soon to promote it, don’t forget May 4th and 5th is the 35th Annual Athens Human Rights Festival!.
