There’s a great rock lineup at Betty’s Bar & Grill tonight featuring Athens, Georgia band Shade, the new project of Bird Names‘ Phelan La Velle. Check out the artist showcase I did with Bird Names here.

The lineup also features Sad Baxter, Bad Friend, and my new favorite local band Sudonistas. I’m liking what I hear on the Sad Baxter Bandcamp. The show on the whole is going to have a very distinctive 90s vibe. Listen to the streams below to see if it’s your thing.

Teaadora Nikolova

As Bowl of Dust quipped, Athens, Georgia’s BIRD NAMES, “remains an enigma of cross-category psychedelic multi-fi mayhem.” They’re passing through Nashville on Wednesday, May 23rd as the core version featuring David Lineal and Phelan Lavelle.

Also performing is the jaw-droppingly-beautiful music of  TEAADORA NIKOLOVA. The Bloomington-Normal songwriter is an incredibly rare talent. Years from now when this diamond-in-the-rough has attained  cult status, you’ll hate yourself for missing this show. Words won’t do. Hear for yourself in the video below.

The bill also features SQUARE PEOPLE and CHRISTLOVE. Starts at 10pm at the infamous Melrose Billiards. Cover is an any-sized donation to the touring bands. Don’t miss this one!

I talked with Bird Names about songwriting, recording, cricket sound effects, and life on this Theatre Intangible podcast. Check it out.
