A great view of the early days of the Athens music scene
8 October 2001 | by (Athens, Georgia) – See all my reviews

This movie does a wonderful job of of displaying the emerging music scene in Athens after the success of the B-52's and REM. It follows several hopeful groups across a variety of genres in Athens in 1987. Some of the more amusing scenes are the ones set in Philomath and the ones with the members of Pylon describing how they turned down an opportunity to tour with U2. Plus it shows REM's live performances of "Swan, Swan H" and "Dream (All I Have to Do)" at the Lucy Cobb Institute chapel. All in all a great documentary, and also a great trip down memory lane for someone who grew up in Athens during this time.
