Turn Your Phone Off. Review by Stacey Zering.
The Record Company rolled into Athens, Georgia on a peachy Monday evening and took the Georgia Theatre on a blues roller coaster. Michelle Wilson went along for the rollicking ride and loved every minute.

Roi Tamkin got the blues at this year’s Music Midtown festival in Atlanta, as he caught sets from Koko Taylor and her Blues Machine, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, the Jeff Healey Band, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and the Allman Brothers Band.
A little bit of hardcore, a little bit of power pop, a little bit of new wave, a little bit of rock and roll, and a little bit of punk — Roi Tamkin caught an eclectic show with Sense Field, the Stereo, and Lift at Atlanta’s Echo Lounge on April 27, 2000.
Music Midtown is a great chance to catch bands you might never get to see otherwise. Frank Mullen took some chances at this year’s festival in Atlanta, and found out what he’d been missing from the likes of Jimmy Cliff, BR5-49, the Jungle Brothers, and Bjorn Again, as well as a pre-Noel Gallagher walk-out Oasis.
