Members of Timmy and the Tumblers and The HUMMS comprise new local instrumental surf-rock outfit The Cryptides, so you can rest easy knowing that incredible moniker is in capable hands. Early demos point towards a shockingly developed sound—a slinky, sexy swirl with just the right smear of dirt. The newly formed Jones Maintenance All-Stars is a hybrid group of sorts featuring members of Nate and the Nightmares and Free Associates; the Nightmares’ Nate Mitchell tells Flagpole the band will be “playing a mix of originals and classic rock and roll cover songs.” The Rodney Kings will be on hand to provide a jolt of punk power, and appropriately capping off a night of throwback jams is a DJ set from local vinyl guru Kurt Wood.

WAX / THE HUMMS / “Close Your Ears”
Athens GA “Scooby Pop” outfit known as “THE ICE CREAMS” have released a music video in percolation to their long-over due Gypsy single “Everyone’s Got A Skeleton“, slated for release later this year.
The skeleton song in particular is a chop-charmed blend of 50’s pop that could be collecting dust on the shores of Leso Island, bound by it’s barbaric beat.
Folks first caught sound of the band via Myface in 2008 and later, making their debut on 2012’s GYPNOSIS compilation.
