Homecoming Shows Announced…

DBT November 1st, 2011


It’s pretty much guaranteed they will never turn The Fabulous 40 Watt into an Old Navy as it was announced today that DBT will once again be playing the annual homecoming Rock Shows in January. Tickets go on sale Thursday November 3rd at 12 PM EST. Read the announcement from the man right here proudly lifted from the DBT Facebook page

Y’ALL:

It gives me great pleasure to once again announce our Athens GA / 40 Watt / Nuci’s Space HOMECOMING WEEKEND EVENT.

This year, in the hope of raising more money than ever for Nuci’s Space and the great work that they do, we have restructured it so that they take a share of all three nights.

The Fabulous 40 Watt Club provided our band with a home to come home to years ago when we were a struggling band, hooking us up with a much bigger venue than we were playing elsewhere at the time, with excellent production and their world famous hospitality.

Now, we tend to play in bigger rooms across America and our 40 Watt shows provide our fans with a chance to see us play extended shows up close and personal.

It truly is a special event to us all and something we look forward to all year long.

As 2012 looms, we are planning on touring less next year so our Homecoming should be more special than ever.

As for support, this should be an extra special HOMECOMING WEEKEND on that level also.

Thursday Night, January 12th, we will kick things off in style with Special Guest FUTUREBIRDS.

They played a bunch of shows with us earlier in the year and have recently been out supporting Widespread Panic and Sold Out their show at The Georgia Theatre.

On Friday Night, January 13th, we will be celebrating the luckiest of all nights with our friends ALABAMA SHAKES.

If you don’t believe me when I say they’re one of the best new bands in the world, check out their video and prepare to be amazed. This will be their Athens GA Premiere and in another year, they will be selling out everywhere. John Pareles from New York Times absolutely raved about their show during CMJ.

Finally, on Saturday Night, we will bring things home with some special friends.

FREE MOUNTAIN is made up of members (past and present) of several of Athens best bands of all times.

(Hayride, Supagroup, Dictatortots and Slackdaddy to name a few) a great new band with great songs and a fantastic show. Kicking the night off for the third year in a row, we will have THE CAMP AMPED BAND, comprised of some of the finest young talent in our fair town.

We will also have our annual auction at Nuci’s Space and other such events to announce later (so stay tuned).

Tickets go on sale November 3, at 12pm EST.

All three nights sell out every year and I suspect this year they will go quicker than ever so don’t put it off.

See You at The Homecoming Rock Show,
