Athens Music News Roundup

First up, former Athenian Phosphorescent’s rental van and gear were stolen on Thursday in Brooklyn. Our buddies over at The Day Jobs have a full list of the missing equipment. Let’s help get this gear back if we can.
Next, the Modern Skirts have released their Happy 81 Ep. Take a listen to DUI and tell us what you think…
R.E.M.‘s deluxe reissue of Fables of the Reconstruction comes out tomorrow here state-side. Tune in on Wednesday for a look into why this oft-overlooked part of their catalog is also one of the most important when it comes to their Southern heritage. Also, don’t forget about the showing at Cine of the boys’ performance at Rockpalast circa 1985. 
We bid a sad farewell to one of our favorite bands. Leading Edge is hanging up the hat, with band member Eric’s departure to teach music in South Georgia. We wish them all well.
Athens Popfest! Tickets on sale now for the amazing festival featuring the likes of Mission of Burma, Oh-Ok, Apples in Stereo….really an insane lineup.
The UGA Music Business Program will continue, says Bruce Burch. He just won’t be the one behind it anymore. So no worries, fellow MBusers.
