ACLU of Georgia Benefit

Since the historic election of aspiring strongman and white-nationalist icon Donald Trump to the highest office in the land, citizen donations to civil-rights organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union have reportedly skyrocketed. Three Athens groups are getting in on the action by playing a benefit show for the ACLU’s Georgia chapter on Friday. Sugary folk-pop act Whisper Kiss, which features members of Abbey Road Live, will perform, as will seasoned guitarist Caroline Aiken and Honeychild, a band led by singer-songwriter SJ Ursrey. Honeychild’s two albums—2013’s American Beach and last year’s Surrender—showcase her aesthetic and stylistic range.
