Flashback to the ARU Reunion

John McLaughlin and Jimmy Herring

My most Zambi experience of 2015 was the chance to be back in the scene for a day when the Aquarium Rescue Unit reunion rolled into Atlanta for a stop on their 26th Anniversary Tour.

Get a taste of the magic yourself with this audience recording from the first gig of the tour at the Ram's Head in Baltimore.  This show includes a guest appearance by guitar god John McLaughlin.

Little Five Points

Little Five Points always offers some of the best people watching in Atlanta, but the Little Five Art Alive weekend events take gawking to the next level.  Come beat the heat with a little freak.
