Drive-By Trucker Patterson Hood talks to UGA's Red and Black about the band's three Athens shows this weekend.

“Lots of bands, once they get out ... never come back home to play. I don’t ever want us to be that way,” Hood said of the band that will kick off its three-night stint in the Classic City tonight at 40 Watt Club. “I love Athens — it fits me.”

The Junkyard Blawg recounts Athens' unique charm in an article about football recruiting:

I like the way retired UGA history prof Emory Thomas, a nationally renowned Civil War scholar, summed up Athens recently in the local paper when he was talking about his time living on Hill Street:

“I could stand on my front porch and next door was Bill Berry, the drummer with R.E.M.; catty-corner across the street was Dean Rusk, the former secretary of state; and another neighbor was Velena Vego, the booking agent with the 40 Watt Club. I could see Vic Chesnutt’s house, the folk singer and composer, and I could see the apartment of Bill McFeely, who won a Pulitzer prize for a biography on Ulysses S. Grant.”

“If you can do all that,” Thomas said, “the place can’t be all bad.”
