Styx and Stones Project
Join the Styx and Stones project at: https://www.facebook.com/projectstyxandstones Here is a description of the project: Ok, so here’s the deal. I heard that Styx was going on tour this year (with Def Leppard and Tesla). Now, Styx has been around for quite a while. Incidentally, I thought of all the people I knew that would enjoy the concert but, most of whom I don’t even speak to anymore. Then, I had a dream about project Styx and Stones. The idea is that people all around the US will come together in the name of Styx. We all know that sticks and stones can break our bones but most of the rest of the stuff we can forgive. So, let go of that grudge from High School. Try to remember the good things about your ex rather than the horror. Try to reconcile strained relationships with family and friends or, reach out to those you have just lost touch with over the years. Go to a Styx concert near you, wear a white t-shirt with Styx and Stones written on it (use your imagination) and express yourself. For example you could write, “I am sorry Helen”, “Thanks for the memories Jeff” or “I still love you Mom”. Take pictures and then post them and/or your stories here. If you are able to attend the concert with some of those you have reconnected with, do that too! Even if you are unable to attend a concert, you can still fix up a t-shirt and post a picture here to share with the world. For at least a small moment in time, let’s bring peace to our corner of the world through music. We look forward to seeing all your photos and hearing your stories. Thank you for making this event possible!

Futurebirds
This event is 21 and over
Futurebirds


Covered in kudzu and swathed in a blanket of humidity, spanish moss, feedback and reverb exists Futurebirds; six Georgia natives who currently call Athens "home." In 2009, these folks self-produced and released the six song Futurebirds EP—one of undeniable character. Less than a year later, there was a full-length in the can. That album, Hampton's Lullaby, garnered praise for its Appalachian harmonies and ethereal melodies. The band toured, and continues to tour in 2011, in support of that collection of songs, as well as in anticipation of two spring releases. The first, Via Flamina, a four song collection of new originals and inspired covers, dropped on April Fools Day via multiple formats. Only a few weeks later, on April 19th, Autumn Tone Records released a re-mastered version of the original EP. Sooner than later, Athens' own up-and-coming label, Holy Owned Subsidiary, will offer the EP on One Hundred and Fifty Gram vinyl in a package featuring art hand-fashioned by the band. Only Four Hundred copies will be available.

During May and June, the band will support Grace Potter on the Bonnaroo Buzz Tour and perform at Bonnaroo, as well as tour with Drive-By Truckers and headline AthFest 2011.

The band hopes to find your face in the crowd.
