As many music fans and local folks know, historic music venue the Georgia Theatre in Athens was all but completely destroyed by a fire last week. Though there has already been a lovely benefit show up in Athens with Dead Confederate and The Whigs, here in Atlanta we'd like to give a hand too.
So the nice folks at Smith's Olde Bar have announced their own employee benefit show, set for July 15. From the head honcho himself, Dan Nolan:
On Friday June 19, 2009 the music community lost
a great musical establishment, The Georgia Theatre. Smith’s Olde Bar is hosting
a benefit for the employees of The Georgia Theatre, and their loss.
Wednesday July 15th, 2009 is the date of the
benefit, tickets will be $10, doors at 7pm, and ALL ticket sales, and
donations will go to the faithful employees of The Georgia Theatre.
Any bands, singer-songwriters, comedians, or any other kind
of act who would like to participate and help raise money for these people, in
their time of need, please contact Dan Nolen or Emily Warren at [email protected]
Thank you for your continued support. Let’s raise some money
for our friends at The Georgia Theatre.
