Bust out those bell-bottoms and get on down to the VFW. That’s right, the biggest lip-sync battle in Athens is back. Groovy Nights is an event where performers compete to win the favor of audiences by lip-syncing to music, usually with hilarious results. This year’s theme is Battle of The Decades: ‘70s vs. ‘80s. For $35, fans can enjoy the spectacle of seven teams from the Athens community battling it out over which decade did it best. At the end, fans can vote on their favorite team. All proceeds from Groovy Nights go to Project Safe, a nonprofit focused on ending domestic violence. Through fundraisers such as Groovy Nights, Project Safe is able to provide crisis prevention, ongoing supportive services, systems change advocacy, prevention and education. They provide a 24-hour hotline as well as secure shelters for emergencies.
