Goldrush: A Night of Classic Neil Young Songs

Part of the now-annual series of local concerts designed to benefit local anti-poverty initiatives (formerly known as Poverty is Real but now called Amplify Athens), Tuesday’s show at the Georgia Theatre brings together an impressive group of A-list Classic City bands to celebrate one of the most influential rock and roll songwriters of the 20th Century. Pulling from early-period highlights like On the Beach and Everybody Knows This is Nowhere, Dead Confederate, New Madrid, Blue Blood and others will put their spin on tunes from Young’s classic catalog. Proceeds from the event, as well as others happening later in the week, will go to Family Connection-Communities in Schools, which works locally to coordinate needed services for children and their families.

8 p.m. $5.
