Music This Week Oct 18th thru Oct 26th

Hey there,
WOW what a week for music! We have several benefits and fundraisers and some of my favorite touring bands The Revivalists, Keller Williams and Zach Deputy.
Wed is You Ain’t Nothing But a Pound Dog, a benefit for the Athens Area Humane Society. Thurs is Oconee River Land Trust benefit featuring Alison Brown Band with Claire Lynch and Special Appearance by Indigo Girls. Fri is the fundraiser for the 39th Athens Human Rights Festival with Fat Arm Daddy (Please come out and join us). Sat is the Lick Skillet Artist Market & Festival.
The Lockn’ Early-early bird ticket sale ends at midnight Wed 10/19. Code is LUMNI2017. The early bird tickets go on sale the next day but $30 more.
I took off for my corner to corner cross country round trip in Feb. I left with the bad news that I was unable to retrieve Sarah and Darrin Cook’s performance at the Valentine Duets. They did Bike my all time favorite Syd Barrett song. I don’t like giving up on anything so I went back and finally was able to retrieve their set and now have the complete show posted. Its under The HOOT! Valentine Duets. .
I also realized I forgot to post the Ziggy Stardust Bowie Tribute show. Its posted now as is last week’s Mother Fore, Whisper Kiss, Zenith Blue and Lily Herne shows.
Next week is Hulaween at Suwanee Music Park and our own Wild Rumpus A Don’t Miss!!
I still think both political parties could save a lot of time and money on primaries by having the candidates go on Jeff Foxworthy’s Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? It would quickly narrow the field.
