GOLDIE RETURNS FROM THE NORTH

Originally the front-lady of the first successful all-girl band,  Goldie and the Gingerbreads, we bring you the lovely – Genya Ravan, via her recent interview on Blues.GR  / which you can READ HERE

During the 60’s, the gals toured with acts such The Rolling Stones, The Animals, The Beatles, The Yardbirds, The Hollies and The Kinks.  In present day 200013,  Genya is a regular host  featured on “Little Stevens Underground Garage” channel on SiriusXM radio

NEW SOUND OF MUSIC TAPES

themusictapes40watt2013

On the patio of Flicker Theatre,  Johnny Tumble had fumbled his White Russian,  resulting in an electric explosion of ivory that rained down on Zeb’s left slipper. As clockwork,  we stumbled inside to catch The New Sound of Numbers‘ set, which was riddled  with fiddles of the groove that left us in a trance and feeling some what tribal.  Quickly out into the 31 degree Athens night and (approximately) 13 giant steps to the left  and you will arrive at the 40 Watt club,  and on this particular night they are hosting  The Music Tapes’ performance of their “Traveling Imaginary”  touring eXXtravagansa.

JulianRobbie, and friends set up a circus tent inside the club, complete with flying bells,  moons, horns, whistles and the bowing of a banjo.   God help any poor soul that gets hold to a bad trip and much bliss can be expected to those settled comfortably underneath the ‘big top’ as something truly interesting and remarkable is happening before you.   Then, all of a sudden – you count down from 5 and it’s over, the lights are out and the tent is gone.

Catch The Music Tapes and their Traveling Imaginary show soon in and town near you // TOUR DATES

Craig Lieske RIP

Another Athens spirit, unexpectedly retired from the world, for now.  “Local musician Craig Lieske has passed away, reportedly due to an aneurysm.  A member of local improv-rock group Garbage Island, as well as a member of the Drive-By Truckers’ touring crew, [Lieske] contributed his talents to countless other local bands during his many years in Athens.  He was 48.”
