Please join us at the library for a very special evening on October 16: We will present a screening of the iconic film Athens, GA: Inside/Out at 6:30 in the Appleton Auditorium. The film documents the Athens music scene during its nascent era during the early- and mid-1980s, and features vintage footage of legendary bands The B-52s, R.E.M., Pylon, Love Tractor, as well as Howard Finster, Ort, and many more.
Producer Bill Cody will be on hand to introduce the film, and he will bring some clips with him from Athens, GA/Thirty Years On…, the sequel to Inside/Out - an update featuring not just music, but also the new political landscape, the beginnings of racial reconciliation downtown, and strong women.
Following the screening, we will have a panel discussion featuring some of the people in the original film: Vanessa Briscoe Hay (Pylon), Bob Hay (Squalls), Ort, and others.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information call (706)613-3650 or visit www.athenslibrary.org/athens. The Athens-Clarke County Library is located at 2025 Baxter Street, Athens.
