Truck’er Treat!

It’s that time of year again when all the creepy crawlies and ghastly ghouls take over the streets of Chronic Town, turning ordinary men and women into the fantastic, the terrifying, and the overtly slutty. Ah, Athens in October is a sight to behold! But it’s not just the little kids who get to have […]

NaNoWriMo: Part 2

NanoWri what? Yes ladies and gents, as it gets closer to November it gets closer and closer to NaNoWriMo. Now, if you’ve been following the blog, you’ll remember that I participated in NNWM last year and posted a little of what I’d written on this here site. NaNoWriMo, short for National Novel Writing Month, is […]

Weekly Show Picks

Wowzers look at the rain! While I’m glad things are cooling off a bit outside, I’m just hoping that this weekend will stay nice, cool, and dry. It’s Halloween for heaven’s sake! And with the spooky day approaching, so do some spooky shows! OH yeah, Next to Last Fest is happening to! WOW. TONIGHT Go […]

Sidewalk Symphonies, Spooky Style

Wouldn’t it be great if you could fight global poverty, support your local music scene, and get some great food? Our good buddy Nathan thinks that would be a wonderful thing so he created Sidewalk Symphonies just for that purpose. Each Tuesday, a few acts do an acoustic show at a local restaurant, with all […]

Low Yo Yo Stuff is Back…

The weather was just so beautiful on Friday night that I managed to leave my little basement and get out into the world for a bit. After a great supper at Copper Creek (holy crap those ribs were awesome), we wandered around towards the Caledonia in search of a little entertainment. It was a curiously […]

Athens Music News Roundup

“Just A Touch” of gray… Good news from R.E.M. land. The next album will be called Collapse Into Now and is expected to drop in Spring 2011. Fingers crossed for a tour? Well, if they don’t tour, we can always watch the “R.E.M. Live in Austin” dvd coming out. If you’re the type to try before […]

Hold Onto It Tightly

It’s two in the morning and you’ve just stumbled out of the show, into the cloud of smoke that hangs around the entrance like a wreath. It burns and stings at your eyes but you just try to ignore it, clutching your jacket tighter as you make that oh so long journey back to your […]

New Addiction: Lera Lynn

Man, I love Birds & Wire. So when I heard that Lera was releasing a solo work, I had to jump on that. Expectations met and surpassed. I’m a sucker for a well-written song but a well-written album? I’m a goner. I’m not quite sure what grabs me first. Perhaps it’s the voice. There’s a […]

Pylon Junkies

Today is Vanessa’s birthday so I thought I’d do a special little post here on AMJ just for her. Ya see, I have to blame Pylon for starting my Athens music addiction (not R.E.M. as many believe). Since Vanessa pulled me up onstage one cold night some years ago, I’ve been absolutely hooked. So now […]
