Supercluster, The Heap, Jackpot City, Dana Downs, William Tonks, Clay Leverett and The Corduroy Road will pay tribute to Elton John this Friday at the 40 Watt to benefit the Athens Area Homeless Shelter in an event called "Gimme Shelter." Tickets are $10 and available from Schoolkids Records on East Clayton Street or from the shelter. The doors open at 9 p.m. and the music will start at the Athens prime time hour of 10 p.m.
But first there will a pre-party at Cine at 6:30 with a version of the game show "To Tell the Truth." The current and former mayors will try to guess who is telling the truth about their occupation among three mystery contestants. Tickets for this event are $20 or $25 for admission to both events.
Proceeds will benefit the Athens Area Homeless Shelter in its mission to assist families with children. This is the third annual "Gimme Shelter" event and the first with a pre-party. Visit http://www.athensareahomelessshelter.org/ for more information.
