Friday, September 6, The Star Community Bar will be the host to the 2013 Nuçi’s Space Benefit Concert. Nuçi’s Space is a non-profit health and music resource center in Athens, GA. whose aim is to prevent suicide by providing obstacle free treatment for musicians suffering from depression and other such disorders as well as to assist in the emotional, physical and professional well-being of musicians.
The benefit will feature Atlanta's own The Higher Choir, a band known for their explosive live shows. Front-man Chance Walls describes the band as a full glass of Southern Rock and Blues backed with a Folk chaser though most folks call them Southern Blues Rock. One thing is sure...where The Higher Choir plays, a party ensues. Their music is raucous and rowdy and just good old rock and roll fun. This is a band guaranteed to show you a good time.
Efren and AM Gold are also on the bill of this night of rock and roll to help raise money and awareness for Nuci's Space. The benefit also will have souvenir posters from TRiPPs Prints of the event as well as a raffle and a silent auction. They are still in need of items for the silent auction. If you are interested in helping out or have items to donate you can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
