Wayne Sawyer (Updated)

Blow after blow. News comes from the Widespread Panic camp today that Wayne Sawyer died in his sleep last night. Wayne worked with Panic for a number of years and was a great friend to many in the Athens music community. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his daughter and wife and all of […]

Jon Guthrie (Updated)

Sad news in Athens today. We have lost one of our own and at too young an age. The body of Jon Guthrie was found today inside his wrecked car on Beaverdam Road. Reports say it appears that he lost control of the vehicle while crossing over a bridge. Jon was an incredible musician in […]

Sun o))) Did WHAT?!

Photo by Candice Jones I’ll go ahead and say that I have no clue who Sun o))) is, only that some of my friends have been screaming into my ears about the band since they found out Athens dates. Provided, I’ve been doing the same thing about the Minus 5 (TONIGHT! 40 WATT!!), but the […]

Well That Was Random: Mother Jackson, Corduroy Road at UGA SLC

There’s usually such a gap between the downtown music scene and UGA that one wouldn’t know the other even existed if not for WUOG, frat bands, and the countless art/English majors that make up 80% of the groups. That fact is why I was surprised when a Telecommunications professor announced an “Athens Music” day in […]

Athens in Perspective: Indigo Girls in Atlanta

By Ziona Kocher “Wow, it feels electric out there!” were the first words we heard from Emily Saliers as she and Amy Ray took the stage on a rainy Saturday evening at Chastain Park. I couldn’t help but think to myself, “if it is so electric, why aren’t we all being electrocuted?” It had been […]
