Aquabear Legion will be holding its annual Pancake Breakfast at ARTS/West on Sunday, January 30th from 1pm-4pm. Aquabear is working with Snowville Creamery, Donkey Coffee, Shagbark Mill, Jackie O’s Pub & Brewery and a whole bunch more so that people can support local music while eating local food. ONLY 5 BUCKS! Bring friends, tell people, and help spread the word. ARTS/West is located at 132 W. State Street in Athens (up the hill from town at the fork in the road by the cemetary) and the breakfast takes place in the basement.
The Aquabear Legion Pancake Breakfast will feature all you can eat pancakes (made with Shagbark Mill flour and Snowville Creamery milk), Jackie O’s fresh baked bread, and all you can drink Donkey Coffee for only $5! There will also be (King Family Farm) bacon upgrades available for a small donation. Money raised at the event will go to Aquabear Legion to help us continue our programming and work throughout the year and will help with our initial non-profit filing costs. The event will also feature Tim Peacock and Matt McElroy spinning 78 rpm records all afternoon long.
Todd and I are headin’ to the Athens Farmers Market on Saturday morning to pick up some bacon, syrup, and a few more things too. Come on out and eat some very good local food and support your Aquabear! Find the event on Facebook here.
For those of you who didn’t make it out to Stuart’s Opera House (my employer and all around awesome place) for the Cabin Fever Festival a few weeks back missed one hell of a show. Great Ohio music from Pomegranates, Wheels On Fire, Alwood Sisters, Whale Zombie, and Bird and Flower in a beautiful space. And Chicago’s Maps & Atlases blew everybody away in their own right.
Here’s a great video from Aquabear’s good friend and fantastic photographer Andrew Spear, who captured the band during their completely unplugged encore surrounded by the crowd in Stuart’s orchestra pit. Check them out doing “The Ongoing Horrible”.
