Travel Haiku - Athens, Georgia (United States) - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Athens, Georgia
beckoning us to the old days
Allen's red doors

Athens, Georgia
only 40 watts the power that
unleashes American punk music

Athens, Georgia
only 40 watts, the power that unleashes
American punk music

Athens, Georgia
we zigzag through the alleyway
in the style of B-52s

Home to the love shack singers themselves, the B-52s got their start in Athens, Georgia, the city whose nightlife has been known to stand its own against New York and L.A. One of the more famous musical influences is the 40 Watt Club, a music venue that played a large role in creating and shaping the American punk music scene and now features live music almost every night of the week. If in town, look for the nostalgic red doors of Allen's, Athens' oldest bar and grill—known best for its deep Georgia roots and guarantee of a good time
