Live Wire Athens

At the northwest corner of downtown Athens, boasting three stages, a cozy outdoor Beer Garden and one of the best sound systems in the city, Live Wire stands as a bright beacon for local musicians and true music lovers. LWA's calendar consistently hosts a variety of national touring acts, local bands, open jams and special events, including weekly beer clubs open to the public that feature local craft breweries. Their philosophy is simple, summed up in a two word mantra that has been their slogan since conception - Love Music.

Enjoyers of rock, funk, jazz, jam bands, indie, blues and reggae will find themselves at home here, amongst a tightly knit collective of locals celebrating the spirit of Athens' great live music scene.
