CANCELLED: A Tribute to R.E.M.

with N.E.W. Athens

We regret to inform you that our May 16 performance of N.E.W. Athens has been cancelled. We are actively working on finding a new date and will alert you immediately upon doing so. All tickets will be refunded within 3 weeks to the original payment method. Please contact the Ticket Office at 301.581.5100 or if you prefer to exchange your tickets for a different Strathmore Presents performance or change your ticket purchase to a tax-deductible donation.

The boys from Athens, Georgia, may have called it quits in 2011 after 31 years of critically acclaimed rock, but you can still enjoy their music live! N.E.W. athens features veteran musicians who perform R.E.M.’s vast repertoire with reverent precision. If you close your eyes you’ll wonder, “is that actually Michael Stipe in the corner? Is that him in the spotlight?” Enjoy their celebrated hits like “It’s the End of the World,” “The One I Love,” and “Man on the Moon,” along with plenty of jangly deep cuts that will delight even the most discerning, hardcore R.E.M. fans.
