Music This Week Sept 11th thru Sept 18th

 Hey there,
On this day, the anniversary of 9/11, I thought It appropriate to talk about human rights. For over 34 years a group of people in Athens have been trying to do their part in stopping ALL wars and raising awareness on issues regarding human rights. Who knows, if more of us had paid a little more attention to these issues we may not  be marking this day as we do. Athens is unique in that we are the ONLY city to have an organization like this. The problem is that a lot of the people in the organization, who started out as college students as most of you are now, are getting to the point where it is time to start to pass the torch on to a younger generation. I personally am pleased to see signs of the same spirit the AHRF started from in this generation of college students. I hope you will step up and join us in our efforts to make this planet a better place.
In case you haven’t heard, there are two fundraisers for the 35th Annual Athens Human Rights Festival May 5th and 6th, 2013. COSMIC CHARLIE will be performing at the first one on Sept 28th at Terrapin.Ber Co. I am very pleased to announce DANK SINATRA will be performing at the second fundraiser Nov 2nd. also at Terrapin.
 I am also very pleased to announce I have made another step in improving the web site, I have figured out how to link the files so you can play the music instead of having to download it first. I think it fitting the first post I’ve done that way is this year’s 34th AHRF. Here is the whole festival, two days of speakers and music. I hope you not only enjoy the music but please listen to the speakers. There are a number of important issues they address. Please get involved. Lets not have any more anniversaries like this one.

The only shows I am sure I am going to are Kenosha Kid on Wed and David Barbe’s shows on Thurs (I wish was doing Electric Codpiece). I hope he starts late so I can fit in Chronic Funk Circus. Fri is a real challenge, I’ll try to Start Fri with Root Spirits after that I really don’t know. I have so many friends playing it is really hard to schedule.Same problem Sat. I will catch Dangfly! Mon
I hope to see y’all at the shows wherever they may be.
Peace and Love,
Kurt
