The Athens, Georgia, Music Scene and the Emergence of a Bohemian Diaspora
This chapter examines the sonic landscapes of Athens, Georgia, which was an epicenter for cutting edge music from the late 1970s to the early 1990s, leading the way for college rock and other independent music scenes. The transformation of this small Southern college town into a new kind of bohemia and nationally and internationally recognized site of alternative culture is covered through the lens of several important Athens bands. These include the B-52’s, Pylon, and R.E.M. The chapter also examines related elements of the emerging scene, such as drag and pop art.
