If you head roughly East from Atlanta, you’ll eventually end up in Africa. If the winds take you the right way, you might end up in Eritrea. If you keep going, you might end up in Vietnam. And you’d probably be hungry. Long before you get there, though, you’d probably end up in Clarkston.

Yeah, Clarkston.

So now that the snow has kept you pent  up in the house for a week, you can choose to cut a hole in the drywall and choke out the neighbor that’s been blasting Journey and Boston for 5 days, or you can go to Clarkston for a change. Mike R., a compatriot from a former life in broadcasting, has been booking live music in ethnic eateries in Clarkston for a while now and he let me know about two upcoming shows:

Sunday, January 16

Jennifer Teeter is opening for Jenny and the Holzers

Mike describes Jennifer Teeter as a “local singer/songwriter who accompanies herself on ukulele while singing songs about weight control via tapeworms and how much girls love dik dik (tiny antelope)… Jenny and the Holzers are a girl fronted, nuggety punkish combo from NY.

Show starts at 8PM and is 18+
Lamb Soup is on the menu!
