Music This Week Tonight Sept 25th thru Oct 2nd

Hey there,
A quick announcement. Please check out the Play Music page on my website:
This is just the first pass at playing the music from web site, lots more to come.
WOW what a week for music, some of my favorite bands are coming through Athens this week. A lot of folks from California will be in town  from Beats Antique to Pigs on the Wing . Of course my favorite pick is COSMIC CHARLIE this Fri at Terrapin 5pm for the AHRF fundraiser, but then again I have a vested interest and I am a devout Deadhead. Get there early, doors open for this show at 5pm. It will be over before 8pm so plenty of time to get to Pigs on the Wing or any other show  Fri. night
Some breaking news from Ann of the Tiger Girlz:
Kite to the Moon’s very own Tiger Girlz  is opening for Beats Antique Wednesday, September 26.  Timi is playing in Atlanta, (Pigs on the Wing is coming to Athens at the end of the week)  so the ladies have been let off the leash, we have smashed our tiger cages, and we are hungry!  Expect all new aerial acts, new costumes, and new floor acts.  This is going to be a great night from the beginning to the end at The GA Theater.
I had the good fortune to hear Beats Antique’s new EP Contraption Vol 2, what a great treat from the haunting opening violin to the end this is a solid album I highly recommend. I would not be surprised if Cirque du Soleil approached them to use it as the musical score for one of their shows. Beats Antique creates a mesmerizing soundscape that is original, ever changing, never boring mix of different genres. I was especially pleased to hear Lynx sing on one of the tracks and even happier to find out she is also performing with Beats at the GATH show. The Colony Collapse – Filistine track makes me think of the music playing that switched on the final four cylons in Battlestar Galactica. Definitely check out Beats Antique with the Tiger Girlz and Lynx at GATH Wed and pick up this album, you won’t be disappointed. Remember the music is only part of the show, expect a thoroughly entertaining musical and visual show. A Don’t Miss!
