New Years Eve in Athens


Have you made plans yet for New Years Eve? Think outside the box of an impersonal, overpriced big city hotel ballroom and head to Athens, Georgia, one of the top live music scenes in America. The clubs will be pulling out all the stops and have some amazing talent booked, including Of Montreal for two nights at the Fabulous 40 Watt and Perpetual Groove at the Georgia Theatre. I hear that New Years Eve at the 40 Watt is already sold out, but that's a great excuse to come up a night early; there's just too much going on to pack in one night anyway. Tasty World has a great lineup of three rock bands, Vigilantes of Love, Five Eight, and Young Antiques. Have some retro fun at the Melting Point with the Atlanta Rhythm Section, or head to Allen's Bar & Grill to re-live your glory days in Athens with southern rockers The Rattlers. The Foundry Park Inn & Spa is offering a special overnight Champagne Jam package that includes Atlanta Rhythm Section tix. There's plenty more to choose from, including Farm 255, Rye Bar, Cine, Little Kings Shuffle Club, Mercury Lounge, and more. Check out Flagpole.com for these and more listings.
