Jon Guthrie Benefit Show at Caledonia tomorrow

The Athens music community was shocked and saddened by the untimely death of local musician Jon Guthrie back in September. At only 26 years old, Guthrie had been making music and performing live for over a decade, leaving an indelible mark on this Athens.

To celebrate his memory, several bands and friends of the late Guthrie will be putting on the John Guthrie Benefit Show Friday night at the Caledonia Lounge.  It will be a night of high-energy music with Athens punk bands Guff, Thunderchief, So It Goes! and Burns Like Fire performing.

In addition to the music there will be a raffle offering the chance to win gift certificates to local businesses. The event was put together to raise funds for the Jon Guthrie Memorial Fund. 

The show costs $8 (18-20) or $6 (21+), and doors open at 9:30.
