Concert producer Alex Cooley is buying the popular music venue Eddie's Attic in downtown Decatur.
The listening room founded by Eddie Owen in the 1990s has over the years provided early opportunities for such successful performers as the Indigo Girls, Sean Mullins and Sugarland.
Cooley and partner Dave Mattingly have announced they're buying the space from current owner Bob Ephlin effective Dec. 1.
Cooley has been part of the Atlanta music scene for more than 40 years. He staged the first Atlanta International Pop Festival in 1969, featuring Led Zeppelin and Janis Joplin. He later produced Atlanta's Music Midtown festival.
Owen, who has been managing Eddie's Attic, recently took over the Red Clay Theatre in downtown Duluth
