Athens Redux Past Shows
Shared on October 1, 2021
This is the debut of our new musical diversion, this one with no competition involved; rather, we are posting sets from shows by some of our favorite bands through the years. Please enjoy the first show by 10,000 Maniacs from their initial performances in the South, at the 40 Watt on Broad May 31, 1983. Enjoy!

Our show this week I believe to be the final recording I made at the Watt, this version was the one on Clayton, second time around. Our band was characterized by the front man as “four lads from Denton, Texas”. We hope you enjoy this music interlude provided by the one and only Brave Combo.

This week we feature a show from the Clayton Street Watt in February of 1990 that spotlighted our old friends the Chickasaw Mudd Puppies, Brant and Ben.

This week we present the Glenn Phillips Band for your audio pleasure. One of the finest collections of musicians to ever take the stage of the 40 Watt Club, it was a singular honor for me to work with them. We hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Here's one from the archives for your listening pleasure. An Athens favorite, this band featured our town's all-time front man of renown, the inimitable Bryan Cook. We hope you enjoy!

Time for a visit from the Lone Star State and an outstanding band called the True Believers, augmented by a couple of locals you may recognize. Say hello to Alejandro, Javier, Hopper and Nicky!

This week’s choice for Athens Redux is an old favorite of mine, Kilkenny Cats. I’ve heard it said many times that this band was terrific live but their recordings failed to reflect that quality. Of course, that’s true of many bands. We hope you’ll enjoy this show in any event, from the 40 Watt Uptown on February 5,1985
