Nuci's Space

Nuci's Space Launches Indiegogo Campaign to save historic R.E.M. steeple

For the last fifteen years, local non-profit organization Nuci’s Space has provided financial aid, practice space and mental health services to Athens’ musicians. It has always been and remains one of the most essential players in preserving the Athens music scene.

On November 3rd, Nuci’s Space launched an IndieGoGo Campaign to help restore St. Mary’s Steeple, the last remaining remnant of the church where R.E.M. played their first official show in the spring of 1980. While the building itself was torn down several years ago to make room for yet another parking lot, the steeple still stands tall as an important Athens landmark. However, as the steeple has begun to deteriorate, the structure requires extensive repair.

In an effort to support the restoration, several Athens musicians have supplied unique items to be used as donation incentives. Items include (but are not limited to):

- A limited edition steeple logo poster from long-time R.E.M. art director and renowned graphic designer Chris Bilheimer

- Three Rickenbacker guitars autographed by R.E.M., Widespread Panic, Drive-By Truckers, and Kevin Barnes (Of Montreal)

- Stage props designed by Michael Lachowski of Pylon

- A smashed Gibson SG and tour costumes from of Montreal

- A limited-edition autographed Wes Freed steeple poster from Drive-By Truckers

- New limited-edition Chuck Sperry posters and Brute posters (featuring autographs by both Mike Houser and Vic Chesnutt) from Widespread Panic

- Drumheads, albums, poster, etc autographed by Neutral Milk Hotel

The campaign, which runs through December 12, has already raised over $50,000 dollars and has received press from publications like Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and Spin. For more info contact project manager Marc Tissenbaum via marc @ nuci.org or by telephone at 706-410-6758. Nuci’s Space has provided a video detailing the restoration effort. Check it out below!
