Athens Music News Roundup


The B-52s will be playing Athens! Holy green colored cows! Yes, the original party people are returning to Athens on February 18, 2011 to play the Classic Center. Tickets for the event go on sale Friday, December 3rd. The lowest price starts at $39.50 so unless someone wants to throw me one for my birthday, I may have to sit this one out. Regardless, this will prove to be an awesome show and a very rare happening indeed. Thanks to Dan Matthews for the heads up!
