Songwriter’s Open Mic Tonight!

by Eric Pudalov, Community Events Coordinator

For those of you who live in or near Decatur, Eddie’s Attic will be hosting their “Songwriter’s Open Mic Night” this evening.  Both national and local acts will be performing two original songs each, with 3 finalists returning for a third song at the end of the evening.

The winner will receive a cash prize and an opportunity to perform in the bi-annual Open Mic Shootout.

How does this apply to GCSS, you may ask?  Even if our clients don’t choose to perform, it’s likely that some would enjoy the music.  Show attendance is free, but purchase of food and drink is required.

Eddie’s Attic is located at:

515-B N. McDonough St.

Decatur, GA 30030

Also occurring this evening is the final night of the “Holiday in Lights,” Centennial Olympic Park’s fantastic winter display that is open to the public.  If you haven’t managed to see this work of magnificence, stop by the park after sunset and take a moment to absorb its beauty, before it once again disappears.


About gcsscommunity

My name is Eric Pudalov, and I work as Community Events Coordinator with Georgia Community Support and Solutions, whose mission is to provide creative, life-enriching solutions to people with developmental disabilities and their families. I became interested in this field, however, due to having a disability myself; namely, I had brain surgery in 1996 at age 14, to remove a benign tumor. Following this, I had many difficulties with short-term memory, loss of strength, confusion, and emotional control. Fortunately, at present, I've recovered much of what I'd lost. Despite some setbacks, I graduated high school with honors, and received an academic scholarship to Adelphi Univ., where I earned a BA in Communications. Since then, I've held a number of different jobs and internships, among them a TA position at Sylvan Learning Center, and work as a "Service Leader" with Hands on Atlanta. Since living in GA, I've also been involved with two programs (including GCSS) that serve people with disabilities. My experience has included sharing apartments with adults with autism and other disorders. Though my so-called "limitations" may differ from those of others in the program, these experiences have helped me to realize that people, overall, are capable of much more than we may at first perceive.
