You probably didn’t know Mike Sparrow. And to be perfectly honest, I really didn’t know him either. But we’ve lost another Athens musician. This has been a truly horrible week for our community with Randy’s passing, snowstorms and power failures, and now this.
Mike played in a Sublime tribute group called “Wrong Way.” I always had them perpetually marked as a “Go See Eventually” kind of band. I’m regretting that now. My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.
Flagpole has details here about what happened.
Nuci’s Space has a blurb about Mike here.
Mike Sparrow Farewell Gathering
March 19th @ Pigpen Studios 7-11pm
The evening will be in memory of Mr. Mike Sparrow.
We will be listening to his latest record, Bored in the South, amongst others.
Fellow musicians and friends are encouraged to play their own renditions of his songs. Terrapin is showing their undying support by donating some of their wonderful brews.
Come listen, come talk…love you Mike!
