Dear darling blog
What are you up to this Saturday afternoon? Well, cancel it. No, seriously, we made plans for you. At 2pm (August 12th), Athens native Ken Will Morton will be stopping by the store to grace us with a few songs on his way to an Eddie's Attic
gig that night.
What's that, you say? You're not familiar with Ken Will Morton? Allow us to shed some light onto an artist Georgia Music Magazine
said "is the bitter(sweet) harvest of progressive rock/punk songwriter crawling from the wreckage with enough grace to make Tom Waits and Paul Westerberg proud." Heavy praise, sure, but we've been playing his latest, King of Coming Around
, here in the store, and we really enjoy it. In fact, stop by and pick up a free sampler to get a taste of his music. Or, check out his MySpace
page and hear a couple songs:

Oh, and lest ye still remain unconvinced (you've always been a hard sell, but we respect that), we are happy to say that Athens microbrew, Terrapin
, is donating some delicious beer for our little shindig. What more do you need? Free beer, great live music, and plenty of smiling people. Yep. We'll see you Saturday!
