This is Reptar. They are easily Athens, Georgia’s most talented and popular band. Only Reptar could decide to have a house show at some random guys house on a Monday night two days prior and have some 200+ people show up. Only Reptar could get everyone present to pay for the 3 (yes, 3) noise violations that the owner of the house received for hosting the house show. Only Reptar could then get the biggest and best venue in Athens to allow them to play a free show that night. Only Reptar could, with 15 minutes notice, have some 400+ people show up said venue. Yes, they are worth the hype.
Reptar is an experiemental, noisy, progressive, post-rock band who do not take kindly to a lack of dancing at their shows. They are talented, they are jokesters, they are charismatic and you really can’t help but love them. If you want proof of their talent, just go watch one of the many youtube videos that’ve been posted of their live shows or their music videos. If you’re too lazy to do that, here’s the music video for "Context Clues". They have released an EP, Oblangle Fizz Y’all, and will be releasing their first full length, Body Faucet, later this year. Oh, and they may be coming to a city near you! You should most certainly go see them if you get a chance because they’re incredible.
