As you’ve no doubt heard, terrorists opened fire in a Paris music venue tonight, killing at least 100 people and taking dozens of others hostage. On stage at Le Bataclan during the attack was Julian Dorio, the drummer for Eagles of Death Metal.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to support Athens musician Michael Guthrie, who suffered a serious medical emergency last month and was found to require open-heart surgery. The procedure took place Oct. 30.
Guthrie's wife Vanda underwent a similar surgery earlier this year, and is currently "suffering from a collapsed lung and ongoing treatment," according to the fundraising page.

There are bound to be plenty of great live-music options for New Year's Eve this year, but one show has shot quickly to the front of the pack. On Dec. 31, four of Athens' most currently essential local groups—New Madrid, Muuy Biien, Mothers and Grand Vapids—will join forces to rock the 40 Watt Club.
To announce the show, organizers put together this bitchin' GIF:
Last month, Athens alt-country troubadour Adam Klein released Archer's Arrow, his sixth album. The record, a collaboration with now-defunct Athens band Nutria, had been in the works since 2010; Klein shelved the project for several years, releasing Sky Blue DeVille with his live band, The Wild Fires, in 2013.
