World music—could the category be any broader? It’s almost as wide open as “Americana.” With performances by Gypsy at Heart, Athens Tango Project, The Hobohemians and Klezmer Local 42, expect Latin, jazz, tango, blues and Jewish tunes. Maybe we’ll get lucky and the klezmer band will do their rousing rendition of “Eye of the Tiger.” At $5, the show is grossly underpriced; try to pry open your wallets and show a little love at the door. All proceeds go to the Camp Amped program at Nuçi’s Space, ensuring the future of the Athens music scene by enabling budding musicians to attend the program under the Herb Guthrie Drumming Scholarship Fund. The evening includes a silent auction and raffle.
