Sunday: Athens-based Ohio music and arts organization Aquabear Legion will be holding its annual Pancake Breakfast at ARTS/West (132 W. State Street in Athens) on Sunday, January 30th from 1pm-4pm. Aquabear is working with Snowville Creamery, Donkey Coffee, and Shagbark Mill so that people can support local music while eating local food! There will also be bacon upgrades available for a small donation. Money raised at the event will go to Aquabear Legion to help them continue their programming and work throughout the year and will help with the organization's initial non-profit filing costs. The event will also feature Tim Peacock and Matt McElroy spinning 78 rpm records all afternoon long. $5.00

Since 2004, Aquabear Legion has worked with over 150 bands from around the state of Ohio, along with dozens of artists and filmmakers. Aquabear Legion works to promote Ohio music and art through its website (www.aquabearlegion.com), releasing compilations (the 9th one due out this Spring), and by putting on shows and events like the 5th annual Aquabear County Fair which will be held March 3-6, 2011 in Athens.
