We want your musical memories

The Normaltown Flyers (who performed many nights at the old Allen’s in Normaltown) recently had their 30th anniversary show at the Melting Point in Athens. Pete Buck from REM (right) and David Blackmon (seated left) were among those who joined them onstage during the performance.

Did you have a memorable music experience in Athens?

Whether it was hanging out listening to tunes at the old B&L Warehouse, enjoying local bands at Allen’s, or seeing breakout bands REM and Widespread Panic at the Georgia Theater, we want to hear from you. Georgia Magazine plans to publish a special March issue themed around music, looking at how the Classic City first got its music city status and how the university has benefitted from the influence of music in the community.
