There are two events that may be of interest to you. For the second event, I have no idea if the bands are any good, but I think the cause is. Perhaps I will see some of you at one/both of these events!
First, tonight from 5 to 7 at the civil war statue on College Green there will be an "Occupy OU" event. Sounds like some folks are trying to get their voices heard locally.
Second is the following benefit event at Casa Nueva (this is from the Athens News):
Books for Prisoners Benefit with Chris Monday, Mike Elliott & Friends, Octopus & Owl, Queen Bee & The Honey Don'ts, and 150 cent. Benefit for Athens Books for Prisoners, a non-profit group that sends books and letters to prison inmates in Ohio. The show is free but financial donations and books are encouraged and welcomed. 10 p.m. Casa Cantina.
