Sweetback Sisters sextet swings by Athens next week


"The Sweetback Sisters and their crack band have created a CD that, while remaining very true to the roots of early country, bristles with the energy of the very best young American performers." -Sing Out!


Get your Sweetback Sisters advance tickets before they are no longer advanced. Time is running out to purchase tickets for the April 25th show featuring the spirited rockabilly harmonies of Emily Miller and Zara Bode.


With influences ranging from The Judds to Wanda Jackson, this sextet is able to mix tones of remorse and heartbreak with swinging honky tonk to relay a modern 50’s sound.


Just back from performing at SXSW in March, the Sweetback Sisters are continuing to grow in popularity and fan base. Don’t miss your chance to see them at your local arts venue instead of shelling out piles of cash at one of their numerous summer festival performances.


ARTS/West doors open at 7:15pm and the show starts at 8:00pm. Advanced tickets for members are only $5, non-members pay $15, students pay $8 (with valid student ID at door) and last minute arrivals pay $18 at the door.
