The Futurebirds, Patterson Hood, Woodfangs, Claire Campbell, and My Cousin, The Emperor are lined up for a show at the 40 Watt Club on December 6 at 8 p.m. to benefit Whatever It Takes, an Athens non-profit working to break the cycle of poverty through education. This concert is organized by Poverty Is Real and will be presented by Flagpole.
Poverty Is Real has the mission of organizing concerts in different cities to promote efforts to combat issues such as poverty, abuse, and homelessness at the local level. The group partners with established local organizations and reaches out to musicians to create a benefit concert series. Proceeds raised at the show in Athens will benefit Whatever It Takes. This is the second concert of the series, with the first show in Decatur in June benefitting Decatur Cooperative Ministry.
The generous support for this show comes from Flagpole, the 40 Watt Club, Barnes Law Group, and Red Eye Gravy Records. Admission in advance is $10 plus a $2 service charge.
