Cosmic Charlie

Cosmic Charlie was born in the musical Mecca of Athens, Georgia. From its summer 1999 inception, the band has been swiftly cementing its reputation as a band that puts a unique and personal twist on the Grateful Dead catalogue, a Dead cover band for folks that are ambivalent about Dead cover bands. Rather than mimicking the Dead exactly, Cosmic Charlie chooses to tap into the Dead's energy and style as a foundation on which to build. The result is healthy balance of creativity and tradition, and both the band and its audience are taken to that familiar edge with the sense that, music is actually being MADE here tonight.

RuHaa! and Nocturnal Animals

Formed in 2016, RuHaa! first came together in Russell Hall on the University of Georgia’s fine campus. After performing at Russell Hall’s annual talent show, our performances went so well that we decided we had a future as a band. To honor our birthplace, we created our name RuHaa! based on the abbreviation for this residence hall. We are a five-person group comprised of one lead singer (Emily Olson), two guitarists (Zach Watkins and Cristian Gutierrez), a bassist (Logan Grailer), and a drummer (Nick Zimmer). In the two years that we have been together as a band, it has been a wild ride. Because everyone brings different skills and music tastes to the group, we have a lot of influences that uniquely shape the music that we create. Some of these influences include The Black Keys, The White Stripes, Janis Joplin, and Weezer. Therefore, our genre is a fusion of several and can best be described as blues-alternative rock. So far, we have written six original songs and we are currently working on new music. As a local band, we have played at many venues in downtown Athens, including Caledonia Lounge and Creature Comforts. Additionally, we have had an awesome time playing for fraternity parties and philanthropy events for campus organizations and Greek life. In April 2018, we released our debut EP, Ready to Go, which includes our first four originals, and is available on all major streaming services including Spotify, Apple Music, and SoundCloud. We would love for you to listen to our music, and we hope you enjoy it! We are always looking to collaborate with other artists and for opportunities to perform at new venues. Thank you for taking the time to read about us! To check out our live performances and some of our newer songs, please visit our YouTube page linked below:

Peter Holsapple Combo and Pylon Reenactment Society

Peter Livingston Holsapple (born February 19, 1956) is an American musician, who formed, along with Chris Stamey, the dB's, a jangle-pop band from Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He became the band's principal songwriter and singer after Stamey's departure. The dB's were at the forefront of the guitar bands from the southeast in the 1980s along with R.E.M., Let's Active, etc. The dB's never achieved the prominence of R.E.M. but were critically recognized and are still greatly appreciated today. The band, with Stamey back in the fold, reformed with new material in 2005–2006

When people talk about the beginnings of the music scene in Athens, GA the discussion usually begins “The B-52’s, R.E.M...” Those who know will continue the list, PYLON. They were every Athens, GA band’s favorite Athens band. Their musical naïveté, southern upbringing, art school smarts, and house-party roots exploded together to create something quite improbably amazing, hitting the listener on mental, physical, and spiritual levels simultaneously. On the surface, their angular guitar parts and dynamic rhythm section had something in common with UK post-punk bands like Gang of Four and PIL, but PYLON was more fun and less studied — and they had a secret weapon in Vanessa Briscoe Hay, whose inimitable vocal textures and phrasing defined the band’s sound for most listeners.

Emily Elrod, Sarah Mootz, and Daniel Hardin

Emily Elrod is a Country Artist
Get the EP-March 27th
Athens, GA

Georgia-born, Nashville-dwelling Sarah Mootz is an unsigned singer-songwriter who can be found playing her original music in and throughout the Southeast.

Daniel Hardin is a singer/songwriter and guitarist out of Athens, Ga that tends to prefer a DIY approach. In between practicing guitar and singing, he spent most of his high school years in Alpharetta, Georgia learning the craft of building guitars from scratch, recording and mixing music, and songwriting. By his senior year, this allowed him to take a few handmade instruments and record his first self-produced, self-titled, full-length original album. Then, recruiting local players to help him form a band, it wasn't long before he began to play out in local venues, most notably selling out The Velvet Note in Milton, Ga four times before leaving for college in Athens, Ga.
