Last night I went to see [lastfm]Black Rebel Motorcycle Club [/lastfm]and [lastfm]The Whigs [/lastfm]from Athens, GA opened the show. While I was watching them rock out I was reminded of all the great bands that have emerged from that city and of course [lastfm]REM[/lastfm] has to be one of the most well known.
Also, on the list of great Athens, GA bands includes [lastfm]The B-52’s[/lastfm], [lastfm]Pylon[/lastfm], [lastfm]Vic Chestnutt [/lastfm]and [lastfm]Neutral Milk Hotel [/lastfm]just to name a few. Today, I’ve chosen one of my favorite REM tracks South Central Rain. Dig it.
