Here’s some bits and pieces from the local scene for July 2022.
I’m not sure if I’m obligated to post this now as both the married partner of a UGA Special Collections employee and a former employee of UGA myself but this is a truly cool exhibit that I’ve been catching glimpses of during its build up. Swing by Special Collections after mid-August to catch the Georgia on My Mind exhibition full of photos, outfits, instruments, and stories of music from across the state.
Covid unfortunately caught up with local game playing rock band Bit Brigade. The crew have had to cancel the remainder of their July tour as announced on their Instagram today. Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery.
The 2022 Scrapstock Festival happening Aug. 11–14 (presented by Volumes Hip Hop and Aubrey Entertainment) is shaping up to be a Don’t Miss Event. Four different breweries, several days of entertainment, and celebrating the local jewel that is Volumes? Yes please. Short list of folk preforming: djbobfish, Cassie Chantel, Kxng Blanco, BlackNerdNinja, Toni Hunlo, Farin and Sajaad, Trvy & The Enemy, Squallé, Tyl3r Davis, Shameless James, Tears For The Dying and Hollowbody.

College Station Road is expected to reopen tonight. As someone living on the Eastside, THANK FUCK.
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve talked Widespread Panic on this site so now would be a good time to mention the band’s Tunes for Tots program. According to our pals over at Flagpole, T4T donated $75,000 to the Clarke County School District last month!!!
