Musical landmark in Athens GA burns down 6.19.09

The Georgia Theater in downtown Athens, Georgia, my hometown, has been gutted by flames this morning.

Many a musical group and artist have played wonderful shows there through the years including Dave Matthews Band, Crowded House (when there was one), and many others my brain can't think to mention just now.

Of course, REM is associated with the Theater as well, and our musical landmark with its old-timey marquee will be sadly missed by all.
