Kenosha Kid

April 17 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Hendershot's,
237 Prince Ave., Athens, GA 30606
+ Google Map

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.

First things first: what is a science café? Well, it’s pretty simple, really. Science cafés are fun, lively meetings held in places like coffee houses, pubs and community centers where everyday people come together and learn about a variety of topics from professional scientists. But they’re not lectures; they’re conversations. The scientist in each meeting is there to guide an open and friendly talk among people who want to know more. You don’t have to know a thing about science…

Bloodkin

April 26 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Hendershot's,
237 Prince Ave., Athens, GA 30606
+ Google Map

Bloodkin’s 25-year history has been a roller coaster of the good, the bad, and the ugly. There have been personal demons to tame, real tragedy to endure, and a very uphill battle to keep their creative relationship intact.
