Kris Langley: Television Buzz

photo by mike white
Kris Langley, frontman for local band Television Buzz, died on January 30th - leaving behind a wife and child and many, many friends in the Athens music scene. Langley suffered from leukemia and was put into the ICU in mid-January after a viral infection in his lungs.
Kris was really funny and very talented - his band practiced here regularly for years and years and played multiple benefit shows for our organization. (One of my favorite Television Buzz memories is them giving away Taco Stand burritos to the first 50 people who came to one of their shows at Tasty World).
Our thoughts are with his family and friends, his wife and his young son Will.
A memorial service for Kris will be held on Saturday, Feb. 13 at the Redeemer Presbyterian Church (corner of Pulaski and Broad) at 3 p.m.
