The Kalamazoo, Mich., band "Greensky Bluegrass" plays a March 28 show inside The Georgia Theatre in downtown Athens. A century ago the theatre was a YMCA. Later it became a movie theatre and in 1989 it became a concert venue. It reopened last year after a fire gutted it in 2009. It now hosts hundreds of live shows per year and is a popular place to watch Georgia football games on Saturdays.
