Music This Week Sept 7th thru Sept 13th

Hey there,
Cerebral flatulence, thought yesterday was Monday. Long weekend party, good thing there is no such thing as having too much fun.
We have two benefits this week  starting with A Miracle for  Mirabel tonight and Chillith Fair a benefit concert for the Magnolia Fund and Athens Anti-Discrimination Movement on Sat. Also The HOOT returns on Monday.
One of my favorite singers Betsy Franck is also tonight with 6 more fantastic singers in The Best of Unknown Athens, I highly recommend.
