Take a tour of Athens music scene

by The 100 Companies

Bands like R.E.M, the B-52s and Widespread Panic got their start in Athens, just part of the reason the city is known as a music mecca. Learn more about the history of the music scene by downloading the Walking Tour of Athens Music History.

It includes a detailed map with 24 stops along with the historical significance of each place. One stop is at 394 Oconee Street where R.E.M. practiced at a church and played their first gig at a birthday party in 1980.

You can also book a guided tour through the Athens Welcome Center by calling 706-208-8687.
