For Coco Rubio, the events consultant for the Greater Augusta Arts Council, connecting a club crawl to the Garden City Music Festival was part scramble and part secret desire.
Faced with the festival without James Brown, Mr. Rubio decided it would be a perfect time to initiate a pet project.
"I've always wanted to do a club crawl," he said. "I thought it would be a good way to get these clubs together, show that there was a strong music scene here and that there were places to play. I was also trying to make this festival as good as it could be. I thought the crawl might make a good tie-in."
Mr. Rubio said that he hopes this is the first of many club crawl events and that he would like to make it a monthly occurrence.
