Happy Summer Solstice. I am sending this at the exact time of the Solstice to celebrate the official opening of my web site: http://livemusicathensga.com/ !!!
I will be transitioning over to the site over the next few weeks. If this causes you any problems please let me know and I’ll do my best to accommodate you.
This is my first web site so please don’t expect much. I am just starting on a very steep learning curve. I will be doing things with this site that is outside the easy to use software most sites use. Also please let me know about any problems, broken links, bad info, improvements. etc. Thank you.
Tonight I’m going to miss Rick Fowler at Loco’s because of the web site launch and because I’m SO far behind. I will catch Timi Conley at Hendershot’s.
Regarding Athfest recommendations – GO! Go to as much of Athfest as you can, all the stages and the pub crawls. If you don’t like the show go to another, that is what Athfest is all about. I’m going to get a wristband but I do that to support Athfest, you can still get into some great late night music that is in bars not associated with Athfest and don’t need a wristband. My favorite show of last year’s Athfest was Efren at GA Bar, over three hours of incredible high energy music and not part of Athfest.
Take your time and go through the Athfest schedule in this week’s Flagpole and try to chart your way, almost everything is within easy stumbling distance. Go to my web site and go through past posts and you will find info on more than half of the bands in Athfest.
Please DON”T DRIVE DRUNK. I’m there start to finish at Athfest so at 2 AM and you find you need a ride, I’m there, please ask. Our city, county and state governments are so broke their only source of income is to prey on the public so expect droves of police everywhere.
