This month, an enterprising group of Perpetual Groove fans will debut their new fan-organized and fan-run charity group, "Antidote" Antidote is a fellowship of fans inspired by the music of Perpetual Groove and taking aim at providing resource relief - be it shelter, clothing, food, etc. - in communities that support the band and to those unable to provide for themselves.

Perpetual Groove not only served as the muse of the group and their name - Antidote is pulled from the crowd-pleasing title track on the band's first album with Harmonized Records, Sweet Oblivious Antidote - but has also provided their support in organization of their inaugural benefit. On February 25th, 2005 at the Georgia Theatre, Antidote will put their inspiration to action by asking fellow fans and the community of Athens, Georgia to donate non-perishable food items, blankets and coats for The Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, who in turn will distribute locally to those in need.

In Clarke County, the Georgia community housing Athens and The University of Georgia, 26% of all residents live in poverty! Antidote chose the Georgia Theatre to host their inaugural drive in appreciation to the support always shown by the crowd and in recognition of the elevated performances of the Perpetual Groove at the venue. PGroove's February 25th show at the Georgia Theatre marks a homecoming of sorts for the band as it will be their first show back in Georgia since their sell out performance on New Year's Eve.
