Athens Resonates is back in a big way after a two-year hiatus, with a killer bill, great art and great food. Guests will be able to enjoy a tasting of cheeses from Half Shepard and wines selected by Savannah Distributing. The night will continue with an in-house exhibition of art by Abby Deschenes, who also created the album’s art. For those uninitiated, or in case you have forgotten, Athens Resonates brings in artists from around town to record live shows directly onto tape. That tape is then turned into 7” records for sale in businesses around town. All of the proceeds generated from the sale of the records go to Nuçi’s Space and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Athens. This year features the intelligent folk rock of T. Hardy Morris, the lush dream pop of Night Palace and the emo-twinged rock of Well Kept.
