“Harold Saul High” is Koe Wetzel being 100% Koe Wetzel but adding a new level of songwriting that proves Koe belongs at the forefront of this scene. It’s 90’s and early 2000’s punk rock meets raw, hillbilly east Texas country music. This album marries the authenticity of Koe’s live performance with an even better look into the mind and soul of the writer behind the pen, all at the same time appreciating the wit and heart of Koe in his nature as a fun-loving dude who loves to have a good time. Everyone who complained about having to wait for a new album from Koe gets more than they deserved and likely expected. “Harold Saul High” is sure to be one of the few albums that defines this generation of Texas music.” - Buddy Logan

After a devastating fire in 2009, The Georgia Theatre was rebuilt and reopened in August 2011, reclaiming its place as a keystone of the Athens music scene.

\r\n\r\n

HISTORY:
\r\nThe Georgia Theater is part of the Downtown Athens National Register Historic District and also the Downtown Local Historic District, which was designated in 2006. It was built as the Elite Theater in 1935 on the \"foundation\" of the original YMCA which had been constructed on that site in 1889. The upper part of that YMCA building was demolished in 1920 and it then served over the years as the Majestic Hotel, Masonic Temple, Dorsey Furniture Company, and Burnstein Brothers Furniture Company until the Elite Theater was built. It is unclear how much of the original YMCA building was incorporated into the Elite Theater.

\r\n\r\n

As a live music venue, The Georgia Theatre has been the site of

\r\n\r\n
    \r\n\t
  • Live performances from a long list of acclaimed bands
  • \r\n\t
  • Music videos such as R.E.M.'s \"Shiny Happy People\" (1992) and John Mayer's \"No Such Thing\" (2002)
  • \r\n\t
