40 Watts of Freedom: An Athens Legend
As JamBase prepares for SXSW (where we've teamed up with the 40 Watt for a major bash), we take a look back at one of the most influential venues in one of our most important music cities...

I caught Cornmeal there last year and had a blast! Great small venue.

I saw Corrosion Of Conformity at the 40 watt around 1987 or so-the show was awesome and I rally liked the club so I decided to stay another night in athens to hang out. The next night some weak ass local band was playing and ALL of the local scensters and douchbags were present and it was like night/day-I realized that night and many times later on what a prententous scene Athens is-Jambands,heavy bands & heterosexuals seemed to be held in disdain. Speaking of hetero's-Kate Pierson (red head hottie) from B-52's grabbed my ass one night and muttered something filthy in my ear but I was too fucked to respond quick and she just floated away.....
