Post-punk band The Method Actors had more in common with Television, Talking Heads or The Voidoids than The B-52s, while maintaining that classic danceable Athens sound. Since the demise of that group, songwriter Vic Varney has remained vibrant and active, writing hundreds of songs. For the last year, he has been recording and mixing his newest effort, titled Home, with former Athenian David LaBruyere in Nashville. Varney also recently returned to the Classic City to settle, after spending the last decade as an instructor at NYU. The gig at Hendershot’s lands on Varney’s birthday, so come and welcome him back to town and celebrate along with the talented Tony Oscar on percussion.
