Musicians Guide to Athens Venues

This is a directory of Athens venues for the ohio musician or the traveling musician who would like to play a show in this town but might not know how to get into the Athens music scene. It's a great college town with an awesome scene and alot of young people.

There is a suprising number of places to play for a town with a population of 21,000 people but thats just how it is. A jewel in the ruff. Great place to play and great place to network. These are some of the best Athens venues that I could dig up on this local music scene.
