Stockholm Syndrome, The Whigs, Kuroma, Allgood to Play the Georgia Theatre

Athens, GA’s Georgia Theatre will reopen this August. The club closed in 2009 after a devastating fire tgutted the entire venue. As of press time, the officially first show at the historic theater—which hosted early shows by R.E.M., Widespread Panic and countless others—will be The Glands on August 1.

The theater has now confirmed a number of additional shows as part of its grand reopening celebration. Stockholm Syndrome will headline the theater on August 17 while The Whigs and special guests Those Darlins and Johnny Corndawg will play the venue on August 20. Former Whigs bassist Hank Sullivant will also headline the Georgia Theatre on August 25 with his psychedelic rock band Kuroma. Finally, on August 26. the recently reunited Allgood and Indecision will both perform at the theater.

The Broklyn Bridge replica will be a key part of the North Don trail, a waknilg and cycling route from the city centre out to Oughtibridge to rival the Five Weirs Walk (it should be even better than the 5WW as we have learnt a few lessons about how to design these routes now) Sustrans is planning a workcamp in Beeley Woods next summer to upgrade the path through there. Robin, it was decided not to re-open the cobweb bridge until the development work at Blonk St was complete, so a through route would br available that would attract a decent footfall, thus deterring thieves and other anti-social types. The steel guard cables have actually been stolen twice and the plan now is to replace them with something plastic that still looks good but has no value for thieves. We were promised opening by Autumn 08 but the leaves are rapidly falling .
