Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Reptar/Icky Blossoms/Idol Hour

When: Tue., April 7, 8:30 p.m. 2015

Bands that hail from Athens, Ga., have a sort of kinetic energy buzzing about their name well before you even toss them on the ol’ Victrola. There’s something about that town. Anyway, Reptar, firmly rooted in the upbeat electronic dance music of the day, has been developing a nice vibe in the past few years. The band’s latest release, Lurid Glow (out this week!), is their most complete and bitchin’ work yet. Guitarist and singer Graham Ulicny blends his lines against seemingly eight-armed keyboardist William Kennedy and show-stealing marimba man Reid Weigner throughout the album with aplomb, and the rest of the band conjures up full-bellied, often exotic dance grooves (see “Cable,” “Breezy”).
