Hey there,
Ttypical week in Athens with way too many shows scheduled on the same day.
This week it’s Sat. I would really love to have someone record the shows at 40
Watt on Sat. Please contact me if you are interested. I’ll be at the Marigold
Fest. all day then to Efren and Dangfly! at Green Room. I’ll also have another
recorder at breathlanes and Whisper Kiss at Hendershot’s.
WOW my first post on the LiveMusicAthensGA facebook page was Feb 15th 2013 here is last weeks status.Over two thousand hits! If you get a chance please visit the site and please click the Like button if you like. Thanks.
Here is a free MP3 of BeAtS AnTiQuE download RIGHT HERE. Warning it is very hard to take it out of player once you start playing. I really enjoy it. I would recommend putting it into a program like Audacity (free) and cutting into tracks before burning it.
For you older folks here is a blast from the past Iggy Pop:
