Didn't fancy dealing with Atlanta's freeway system, but if it's relatively easy to get into/outta/around town, we may do...

In Macon there's a huge avaiation museum, a pinball boutique, and a flea market that are all worth checking out. Don't be afraid of Atlanta, though, you should give us some dates so we can figure out what shows are gonna be happening.

Cheers, CreepySexyCool! Well, we'll be passing thru on Monday April 23rd, so let us know! We fly out April 19th...

Actually, we were planning to do our road trip the second week we're over, but I literally just realised that I've booked the Savannah and Athens hotels for the FIRST full week by mistake! Aaargh! However, that DOES mean we'll be in Memphis on the first day of the Memphis In May fest, so we can go see The Stooges/Bobby Bland/Jerry Lee! Yaay!

Not much going on on the 23rd, BUT, Mighty Hannibal is doing another show here on the 21st! I hear it's gonna be with his old band, but Trey knows more about that than I do.

Also in Macon, The Georgia Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

I was born there. However, I have no suggestions.

I think I'll try to find a way up to Memphis for The Stooges and Jerry Lee.

Anyone know how a guy and his girl might get to see The Bar-Kays on Sat. without having to buy a ticket for the whole day?

Macon, GA. carpet outlet?

Yeah, why don't you just stay in Atlanta, the Black Valhalla? Or Athens even?

Hey, anyone know if the record store Real Records is still open, opposite the Georgia Music Hall of Fame?
