Athens, GA Live Music
Live Music Central
Athens' music scene first arrived with alt-indie sensations the B-52s and R.E.M. We've since launched Widespread Panic and the Drive-by Truckers. Today, the Athens music scene is as alive as ever, with hundreds of bands in all genres calling Athens home. No visit would be complete without sampling a bit of Athens' world-renowned music scene. Take an Athens Music Walking Tour, spend Happy Hour on the rooftop of the Georgia Theatre, then stay out late in the clubs.
