Lots of great shows happening here in Athens around the holidays, we’ll be talking about some of them in the next week here on Aquabear. Sunday, December 16 features four of the finest songwriters around all on one stage at Donkey Coffee: Matthew Milia (from Michigan’s Frontier Ruckus) and Michael Nau (from Maryland’s fantastic Cotton Jones, who will be playing this year’s Nelsonville Music Festival) will join Athens’ own Adam Remnant (Southeast Engine) and Athens’ own/Oregon’s current own Justin Gordon (Hoover Administration). Don’t miss this one folks. $7 at the door, show starts at 8:00pm.
Misra Records is very excited to announce the first in a series of living room tours. Jerry DeCicca (The Black Swans) & Adam Remnant (Southeast Engine) will be playing a string of intimate and all-acoustic house shows throughout July. It will be a unique tour of two critically acclaimed modern songwriters in an unparalleled environment.
These performances will bring back the intimacy large venues lack, holding only 40-50 guests, no sound systems or amps – simply two artists and their instruments. It is an ideal environment to showcase DeCicca & Remnant’s talent and power in a truly special way.
The living room tour follows the spring Misra release of The Black Swans’ Don’t Blame the Stars and Southeast Engine’s Canary. Both albums have seen wide critical acclaim from outlets such as Pitchfork, Paste, NPR, Magnet, KEXP, No Depression, and many more.
Tickets are limited – on sale at misrarecords.com/tours
Living room location announced upon ticket purchase
Shows start at 8 pm
FULL TOUR LIST AFTER THE JUMP
The 5th annual Aquabear County Fair is coming up this weekend (March 3-6) and we think this year just might be the best yet. The Aquabear is serving up four days of Ohio music with 16 bands.
We finish the 5th annual Aquabear County Fair off with a FREE afternoon potluck at the always awesome ARTS/West (132 W. State Street in Athens) on SUNDAY, MARCH 6 at 2:00pm. Its a great lineup too featuring Super Desserts (columbus), Brian Harnetty (columbus), and Athens’ own Adam Remnant. Plus it’s free (though donations help pay for bands, space, and sound) and it’s a potluck so bring some food to share and enjoy some amazing music. Trust us, you will have a great time. We’re bringing kelbasa and bread from Crumbs and a giant chocolate bunny.
Super Desserts are a fantastic band from Columbus, Ohio. Come see them this afternoon and you will love them as much as we do.
Brian Harnetty is a musician and artist from ohio, and his work involves overlooked elements of sound. many of his pieces transform found material––including field recordings, transcriptions, and historic recordings––into personal sound worlds. He’s recorded and worked with Will Oldham, and graced stages from Europe to the Southern Theater.
Adam Remnant has been one of Athens’ most respected songwriters for a decade and appears at ARTS/West for a special solo show. Adam’s band Southeast Engine is releasing its new album Canary on MISRA Records in a few weeks and embarking on another tour.
This year we present 16 bands total in Athens, Ohio over 4 days on March 3-6. 15 Ohio bands and even 1 from Japan.
