On This Day In Music: R.E.M. Played Their First Gig

American rock band R.E.M. appeared live on the stage for the first time on this day in 1980 to play a gig for a friend’s birthday party. The party was held at St Mary's Episcopal Church in Athens, Georgia. The four piece formed by drummer Bill Berry, lead guitarist Peter Buck, bassist/backing vocalist Mike Mills, and lead vocalist Michael Stipe, hadn’t been together long before playing the gig. Stipe & Co. came up with their unique name from flicking through the dictionary! They landed on Rapid Eye Movement and so the band as we know them, R.E.M. was born.
