Back Where the Groove Began
A fitting close to its It Starts Where It Ends tour, Perpetual Groove returned to Athens for a 3 night run at the Georgia Theatre—-the same venue at which the group kicked off its tour in early September. On December 29, Perpetual Groove held a setlist contest to choose the song list for the first night of its run, while bassist Adam Perrys brother, Damien, sat in on Free Ride to the Show at the end of the groups second set. A night later, the SeepeopleSs Will Bradford, who opened the groups show, also sang lead vocals on a cover of Soundgardens ‘Blow Up The Outside World. Perpetual Groove nodded to the past and looked towards the future on New Years Eve, performing two of its newest numbers: Lunatix the Guide and Only Always. At the start of its third set, Perpetual Groove opened with Speed Queen, before segueing into a New Years countdown, Princes Kiss and, finally, back into Speed Queen. Later, Damien Perry returned to help his brother close out Perpetual Grooves performance with a version of the Beatles Helter Skelter. In January, Perpetual Groove will perform throughout the Southeast before venturing to California in February.
