Nearly 15 years ago, local musician Bob Hay had the idea to dedicate a concert to the memory ofRobert Burns, the 18th-Century Scottish poet. The event took place on Burns Night, Jan. 25, the author's birthday. (The Telegraph has a nice explainer on who Burns was and why Burns Night became a thing.)

It's a big night for live music in Athens, with three marquee shows to get you all hot and bothered on a cold and windy evening:
Songwriter Vic Varney is known to Athenians for his work with post-wave punks The Method Actors. Since his time in Athens, he has focused on a solo songwriting career. The New York City resident plays Athens for the first time in over a decade on Saturday, Jan. 31, when he takes the stage at Hendershot's.
Flagpole caught up with Varney for a chat.
