August 3 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Hendershot's,
237 Prince Ave., Athens, GA 30606

The Indie Revenge walks into record stores with sledgehammers. When the screaming stops and the floors are covered in broken vinyl, they glue it all back together and force the clerk hiding behind the counter to put their creation on the turntable. Four of Atlanta’s top improvisational musicians come together to create complex arrangements on the fly, taking cues from a bevy of influences including rock, soul, funk, jazz and metal.

Grandpa’s Cough Medicine

August 21 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Hendershot's,
237 Prince Ave., Athens, GA 30606
+ Google Map

Grandpa’s Cough Medicine does not play your grandpa’s bluegrass. They fall squarely into what is being called “outlaw bluegrass” by many folks. With songs about corrupt politicians, executing would-be thieves, heavy metal induced killing sprees, the joys of pickin’ and many a drinkin’ song, GCM veers away from many of the traditional subjects so often heard in bluegrass music. You won’t hear a gospel song, nor a cabin song. You’re much more likely to hear about a jealous lovers misadventures…

Jazz Thursday presents Kenosha Kid

Hendershot's,

What does the south have to offer the modern jazz scene? Kenosha Kid is here to answer that question with its own unique fermented blend of NYC hipster jazz soaked in the humid college rock town of Athens, Georgia. The melodies are haunting, the grooves are devastating, and the focus is always on instrumentation, song arrangement, and band sound instead of long-winded soloing.
