CANCELLED: Hargrett Happy Hour: The B-52s

Note: The B-52's have postponed their Athens show on November 15th due to illness. In light of this change, we are cancelling our scheduled Hargrett Happy Hour event.

We still have great items from the band on display in our exhibit "Georgia On My Mind: Finding Belonging in Music History" and hope you will stop by to see them before the exhibit closes on Dec. 9th. If you have any questions, please contact jhebbard@uga.edu.
