The New Pornographers (with Neko Case) and Okkervil River performed Thursday, April 17, at the Georgia Theater. Gigs on this tour have been reviewed by music bloggers before (Chromewaves, ChartAttack, The Wheel’s Still In Spin). Now it’s your turn.
WRITE YOUR OWN REVIEW!
Instead of reviewing the show, I am asking my fellow concert-goers to post their own reviews and reactions in the comments section of this post. So bring it on, folks! Enthuse, critique, swoon, and/or squabble at will!
For those of you who don’t know, the beautiful cauldron of musical ferment that is Athens, Georgia, spawned R.E.M., The B-52s, Pylon, Widespread Panic, Neutral Milk Hotel, Indigo Girls, Drive-By Truckers, Danger Mouse, etc.
Watch a ten-minute taste of the 1987 documentary Athens, GA: Inside/Out about the camaraderie of the artists active in this mid-80s in this college town. And if you really want to geek on the Athens music scene, take a musical history tour.
