Aquabears and Artists- a collective weekend

Aquabear Live @ ARTS/West with The Black Swans and The McGovern Brothers

This is going to sound amazing... Friday, February 20, 2009 from 8:00-11:00 PM

Aquabear continues our monthly concert series at ARTS/West with an amazing evening of music.

The Black Swans (Columbus) for some of you Athens old timers- welcome back Keith Hanlon and Chris Forbes of Norton's Orchestraville fame!
-"The surface of the music is usually calm and familiar, but something disturbing appears briefly in the crest of each wave of violin or guitar." - Pitchfork

The McGovern Brothers
- Athens County's own old-time and bluegrass masters

This is going to be a good one.
