Keeping The Legacy Of Athens Music Alive

Nov 8, 2017

The Athens music scene is legendary and always booming. Since it became famous for launching bands like R.E.M., the B-52s, and countless others, it has only grown in the number of bands, talent, and musical quality. Some Athenians are documenting the music and history of that town's scene. 

Gregory Frederick has taken it upon himself to videotape as many live shows in Athens as possible. His project, called "Athens, GA Live Music" already has thousands of videos in its collection. Jason Thrasher is a photographer, whose new book, "Athens Potluck" captures hundreds of the quintessential musicians that make Athens… Athens. We talk with Gregory and Jason ahead of a book release event for “Athens Potluck,” at Nuci’s Space this Sunday, November 12.
