This was a great interactive stage theater experience. Great set, great mood, great props, great time of year for this. It was fun being in the middle of it all with the actors while they were in character.
Farcical white guilt is always a guaranteed sell.
I like the idea and the little I saw of the site but why the word bitter?
Alley Pat kept me company on the radio at work for years. A treasure...a true Atlanta original. In the early morning hours, he would play Lou Rawls "Early Morning Love" and say, "OK, this for ya'll to have a little fun before you have to get the kids up." And when a news story of some low life thug came up, he would play this gem:
Thrilled to know that Alley Pat lived long enough to get his due and proper. It's strange...I have so many African-American friends in their 90s these days. When I moved here they were hale, hearty, and in their 60s....oh.
No no the actual building. Not the ceremony.
So proud of Alley Pat he is one the greats.
The Georgia Music Hall of Fame is October 19th.
In regards to this wonderful article, there is a correction. Alley Pat was not hired by the owner of WERD; he was discovered by the Program Director of WERD, my Uncle Ken Knight.
Congrats! And bring back the GA Music Hall of Fame please.
Exceptional turnout, super unique artists/displays, reasonable food and drink prices, people on their best behavior. Who knew the Fire Station would be such a draw? Watching so many ages and ethnicities sweat to the rockstar DJ in front of No Mas was awesome. Very proud 'hood moment and great witnessing the legit CL booth. Not to ruin it, but walking along Walker I couldn't help but to think of the gentlemen who only a few days prior lost his life in the same spot. Thoughts go out to his family and friends.
Hate when organizations like this dont release apps for Android. Not everyone uses an iPhone and thus, were excluded
does anyone know if kids do well at this event?
Hey WWW... I think they were referencing the original Cheshire Bridge Road -- Peters Street.
will the dancers in the back of the moving truck be back? that was interesting.
and the thing a few years ago where the dancers moved the the streets with light balls was cool to watch.
wasn't a big fan of the "let's project large images of some people's faces onto the wall while they react to things being screamed at them".
and yeah - if there is a red light district in atlanta, it would have to be either cheshire bridge or stewart avenue, not castleberry hill.
I'm guessing that "formerly the red-light district" is a reference to Snake Nation, an area of saloons and brothels located where Castleberry Hill currently stands. Pecanne Log has a good post about that history:
Flux is awesome and I highly recommend it. I went last year and it was a lot of fun but holy cow was it crowded. Maybe they'll do a better job with crowd flow this year.
I have heard Castleberry Hill called many things, but never the red-light district. Are you sure about that?
Wait is there an iron pour this Saturday? The picture above could be misleading.
Saw this play Sunday. It's a freaking good show with amazing actors and an amazing storyline. I highly recommend to all theater lovers to go out and see it before its production run ends here in Atlanta.
Saw this exhibit over the weekend. Very intriguing work.
If they could bring in Levar Burton...this thing would be at the next level of book events.
