Life in Athens
Posted by Usha Rodrigues

R.E.M. is a big part of life in Athens--mostly because the band is a reliable source of support for various charitable endeavors.  Also because you're about two degrees of separation from everyone here. As in, I've eaten eggs from Bill Berry's farm.  It's a long story.

What with getting a career up and running and having 2 children since moving here, I haven't really enjoyed the music scene much.  As in, at all.  I'm in bed by 10:15.  But last night...


I took a video, too, but I was up on the balcony and it didn't come out as well as this one.  I've always secretly imagined myself at one of these apocryphal tiny-venue R.E.M. shows.  Somehow, I didn't picture the crowd quite as gray and paunchy.

It still rocked.
