Re: 12/1/16 Georgia Theater Athens, GA

Only time I saw JI with DBT Dec 30, 2006, he played with Centro-matic entire set in ATL at Variety Playhouse. Great show, turned me on to DBT bigtime.

If you haven't grabbed the new McMurtry single "Remembrance", you're missing out.

Re: Dexateens -lots of info here

New material, but they have since recorded another record with Mark Nevers. No idea when that will be released. Elliott also has another record under his belt with his punk band RATTLER that rips real hard. Very reminiscent of Teenager-era Dexateens. Is Rattler out? Kind of like a CS Lewis punk mas...

Part one of an AL.com series about Alabama bands from the '90s that never 'made it,' but packed plenty of bars and showed many fans a great time.
