The Avondale Towne Cinema is part of the historic Avondale Estates Tudor Village building that was constructed in 1924 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally housing City Hall and the local U.S. Post Office, both were relocated in 1938 to construct the theater space that is now home to the Avondale Towne Cinema. Opened originally as the Avon Theater, the theater name was changed in 1966 to the Avondale Towne Cinema. The theater has a storied history as a live performance venue showcasing boxing, wrestling, Vaudeville shows, movies, plays, musicals, dance, and magic shows. But above all else, the Avondale Towne Cinema is best known for its rich history showcasing live music and as a popular music recording studio space. Artists who have graced the stage at the Avondale Towne Cinema include:
The Allman Brothers Band
Shooter Jennings & Jason Boland
Drivin’ N’ Cryin’
Jason & The Scorchers
TOWNE Cinema BLUES JAM w/ NICK & the Grooves

**THE THREADBARE SKIVVIES**
This southern funky folk band hailing from Atlanta, GA is a homegrown blend of bohemian banjo bangin, textured rhythms, sweet surprising harmonies, and soulfully crafted lyrics. They describe themselves and their music as
Vagabond Nature Folk.
After playing around the Southeast – from barefoot backyard parties to great stages throughout the region, the group has honed their unique sound and gathered popularity for their passionate live performances & their genre-bending original tunes.
After beginning his career as a finalist in Guitar Centers Annual Singer-Songwriter Competition, Ben recorded and released his first EP in February of 2017, titled Love and Ghosts. The album’s promotional tour took Ben across the eastern United States, and included collaborations with Lewis Watson and members of the New York City jazz community.
Though still in the foundational phase of his career, Ben has booked performances across the United States, Australia, and New Zealand, including at New York’s The Mercury Lounge and Atlanta’s Center Stage. His first music video was produced by Australia’s Rusty Shutter Film Co, and has been screened both domestically and internationally.
