R.E.M experiences a homecoming of sorts tonight as they return to Seattle to play back-to-back shows over the weekend with support this evening from fellow Athenians, Five-Eight, and Saturday night’s special guest Charlie Mars. Both shows are at Marion Oliver McCaw Hall.
Five Eight, who will also be joining the band in Albuquerque for the last show on the North American tour, has a self-titled record out now. For more information, please visit fiveeight.com. Charlie Mars has opened for R.E.M. on the recent swing through Canada and will be joining the guys in Vancouver, Salt Lake City, and Denver. Charlie, who has a self-titled release on V2 records, has a brand new website, charliemars.com, where you can learn more about his fine music.
