6 Bs and a P: The Shapeshifters Almost Return (Season 2, Episode 15):

Just when you have finally given up hope on the Cleveland Browns… they win 59 minutes of a game against one of the best teams in the league, the New England Patriots. Problem is that there is 60 minutes in a professional football game, and the Browns gave up 12 unanswered points to the Pats in the last 61 seconds of this game. Browns lost 27-26 and drop to 4-9. Brian and Ian are joined by new guest Luke and do a live Q + A from the audience over the magic of the internet. Kris fills in for Wiebe on Broken Bandwagon and everyone tries to find things to talk about that aren’t the Browns.

Help Dogs + Honor Kimberly at The Union on Saturday with Athens’ Finest Rock & Roll

Friends of the Shelter Dogs benefit show at The Union on Saturday, December 7! Good cause, 6 bands, 5 bucks.

Friends of the Shelter Dogs benefit show at The Union on Saturday, December 7! Good cause, 6 bands, 5 bucks.

If you believe in a supporting a great cause (for an even better reason) all while listening to some of Athens, Ohio’s best rock and roll then Aquabear has a suggestion for your Saturday night. On Saturday, December 7th, The Union hosts a Friends of the Shelter Dogs benefit show with Weird Science, The D-Rays, County Pharaohs, DUNE, Dead Hand of Man, and Supernobody! The evening (and its charitable cause) are to honor the memory of Kimberly Fleming, a friend of many of the fine folks involved, Athens resident, and animal lover. Music starts at 9pm sharp (doors at 8:30) and $5 gets you 6 of Athens finest bands, with proceeds going to Friends of the Shelter Dogs in Athens County.

Missy Pence Coleman (bassist in Athens’ own surf rockers The D-Rays) put the show together as a tribute to her late friend Kimberly Fleming. Fleming called Athens home for years and passed away last August, and as Missy put it, “just seemed we needed to do something for her here and there was a lot of interest right off the bat. She was an animal lover, and we wanted to do something good in her memory.” Coleman told Aquabear that the lineup came together pretty quickly, “I sent out a message to her old friends in bands here, which got the original bill going– us, County Pharaohs, Dune and Weird Science. Then a few more bands, Supernobody and Dead Hand of Man volunteered to play too, so it just took off.”

9:00 Supernobody
9:50 Dead Hand of Man
10:40 DUNE
11:30 County Pharaohs
12:20 The D-Rays
1:00 Weird Science

Help support a great organization, Friends of the Shelter Dogs, by seeing some great live music! Six bands for $5! Doors open at 8:30 and the show starts promptly at 9:00.

Friends of the Shelter Dogs is a group of Athens County, OH citizens dedicated to the welfare and rescue of dogs from the Athens County Dog Shelter.This show is also a local opportunity to remember our dear friend Kimberly Fleming. All of the proceeds of the show will go to FOSD in her name.

6 Bs and a P: The Teal Lining (Season 2, Episode 14):

Even we are a bit surprised by how bad the Cleveland Browns are now, they lose to the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars in a terrible game. Our host and guests do everything they can to talk about things other than the game covering hard hitting topics like the Sunday Night Football theme song, the Jaguars awful helmets, and Quarterbacks in 2014. Listen and share. Go Browns!

The Browns looked bad this week. So what better time to make one of our good friends (who doesn’t watch or particularly like football) watch the Browns game in its entirety and come talk about it with us. Needless to say our friend Aaron cannot understand at all why we would root for this time and even has suggestions on other things Cleveland might be able to do instead of play football. We are joined also by Ian, Wiebe, Michelle, and Sherri to discuss how sad the game was and look for bright spots ourselves. When that fails we talk about crazy names. Go Browns?

An Update From the Bear

bear_sleeping_on_backHey Aquabears! Sorry for the lack of non 6 Bs and a P content on the website, life got busy (as it does). Aquabear has a lot of fun things in store though as we had into our 10th year in 2014. Look for a few new FREE online compilations from the archives along with more new projects as we get into the new year. As always we are putting out a call for anyone who wants to put content together for the site. If you want to write, post, shoot photos, or anything about Ohio music and art drop us a line at contact@aquabearlegion.com. Aquabear is always looking for new folks to be involved. As far as podcasts we suggest you listen to 6 Bs and a P as football season continues and I will also have a brand new episode (#4!) of The Moose Is Loose podcast in the next couple weeks featuring lots of great Ohio music. Look for an Athens Holiday Show sometime in December and go see some local music.
