Athens Early Care & Learning Fair 2018
ReBlossom Mama Baby Shop – A few years ago when I started down this parenting adventure I didn't know what kind of care I wanted my daughter to have while I wasn't around. If only I could have gone to one place to meet and learn about lots of different programs! That's why we're hosting an opportunity for you to learn a bit about what is available to you here in Athens. Join us for a meet & greet with directors and representatives from local pre-schools, daycares, in-home care providers and drop-off facilities in Athens.

Some questions to ask yourself before coming: 1) What kind of care do I want? 2) How much care do I need? Full-time, part-time? Early drop-off, extended day? 3) What is most important to you? Student-teacher ratio? Food/Allergies? Health? Play? Curriculum? Cost? Safety? Experience? Extra offerings- music, art, Spanish, yoga, etc.?

The Sibling Rivalry Tour 2018 Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones and The High Divers at Georgia Theatre
Georgia Theatre – The Sibling Rivalry Tour 2018... Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones and The High Divers w/ Until Three at Georgia Theatre Doors 8pm || Show 9pm || 18+ Tickets on sale now! The High Divers “We all moved to Charleston (SC) on the same day, and there was nothing else in our minds but forming a kick ass touring rock band”, says frontman, Luke Mitchell. With some extensive tours under their belts, as well as some opening slots for notable acts such as Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats, Delta Spirit, Shovels & Rope and Drivin N Cryin; The High Divers are steadily becoming exactly what they’d envisioned since day one. After a horrific crash in June—in which a semi truck hit and flipped their tour van, injuring all band members and crew—caused an unexpected delay, Charleston's The High Divers will at long last release Chicora, their follow-up to 2015's Riverlust, on March 2, 2018 via True Blue Records. Chicora takes its name from the Charleston neighborhood the band calls home, and it's fitting, given they did all the recording in their living room. And although the album was already finished before the van accident, it also serves as a reminder of the community that rallied around the band in its time of need. The band played over 50 shows just a month after their crash, and The High Divers will be hitting the road again in January, with an extra taste of home with them this time around: they'll be joined by Mitchell's sister and her band, Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin' Stones, on the aptly named Sibling Rivalry Tour. Chicora will be released on March 2, 2018 on True Blue Records. Hannah Wicklund & The Steppin Stones “If Stevie Ray Vaughan and Slash had a love child, and that love child and Janis Joplin had a love child, it would be Hannah Wicklund.” Hannah Wicklund and The Steppin Stones is an American rock ‘n’ roll band from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Wicklund formed The Steppin Stones at the age of nine. While most were accomplishing third grade reading lists, Wicklund was forming a rock ‘n’ roll band. Playing over 1,500 shows, sharing stages with acts including Kansas, Jefferson Starship, Outlaws, Lyle Lovett, Jason Isbell, and Rusted Root before legal voting age, Wicklund and The Steppin Stones have evolved over a decade. “18-year-old vocalist and guitarist Hannah Wicklund who delivers melodies and styles from multiple genres with both expert precision and original adventurism…it’s astonishing how they achieve such a mature rock sound on their 2015 self-title album,” wrote Modern Rock Review’s Ric Albano. Now in Nashville, Tennessee, Wicklund, guitarist, pianist, singer and songwriter is accompanied on stage by bass and drums. Wicklund’s signature curls flying through the air transport back to the time of the first female rock star, Janis Joplin. Capturing the old soul of a new generation, Wicklund’s singing voice and guitar playing have earned her comparisons to blues/soul musician Susan Tedeschi. With the band’s musical influences from Jimi Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Jeff Beck, Wicklund’s classic rock look get fans listening, but her guitar skills keep them wanting more. “I remember the first time I saw Nirvana in 1990 in a small club in Jax Beach with a handful of long hairs and shoe gazers. I will never forget that night, but I was more blown away tonight by Hannah than by Kurt. She is a monster talent and her trio is cool as shit. Tonight was one of those once in a life time moments when you catch a superstar on the way up. Please support her so everyone else who plays guitar can retire,” said Josh Talbot, Nashville native. While touring and playing private events including parties for AC/DC’s Brian Johnson, the band has managed to release four albums. The latest, a self-titled album recorded at Echo Mountain Recording Studios in Asheville, NC in 2015. The band will close 2017 with their first international tour and kick off 2018 with the release of their third album, produced by Sadler Vaden.
