Athens Business Rocks

Steves-from-accounting the town over get the chance to strut their stuff with Nuçi’s Space’s annual battle of the bands event, where local businesses form clever cover bands compete against one another with three-song sets. This year’s list of performers includes Automatic Pizza, Hendershot’s, The Grit, Honey’s Salon, ACC Emergency Specialists and Flagpole’s REMones, in addition to longtime crowd faves Punch List (TSAV) and 40 Cent (40 Watt Club). The winner, determined via a combination of judges’ scores, attendance and fundraising, will be announced at the conclusion of Saturday’s show. Cast your vote (for us, duh) by visiting and tossing a few bucks into the virtual tip jar.
