Athens may be cooling down for the winter, but ACRN is just heating up. Come take shelter from the frigid cold and warm up to the sweet sounds of college rock bouncing off of the walls of a 1950s chapel this Saturday, November 16. No matter what kind of music you’re into, whether it be indie or experimental, the show has something for you.
Camille Karavas, an Ohio University student originally from Toledo, Ohio, will be the first to warm up the crowd. By day, Karavas is a junior biology major, but by night, she is an alternative/indie musician striving to move people through her music.
“I’m heavily into lyrics that are emotionally relatable and guitar riffs that give you that ‘butterfly feeling’ in your tummy,” Karavas said.
Karavas has one song available to stream entitled “What You’ve Done” and plans to release an EP in the near future.
Next up is saladfucker with their mania-inspired techno project. The audience can expect loud, fast and distorted drums over chopped and cut freak-folk samples. Their sound should be very interesting paired with the natural reverb and acoustics of the old chapel.
Saladfucker is currently looking for collaborators, so if you like their music, feel free to contact them here.
Headlining the Galbreath show is Columbus-based electronic producer, galen tipton. Finding inspiration for their music in “vulnerable moments, unexplainable feelings and reconnecting with raw childhood energy,” their experimental music takes listeners on a journey through “deconstructed soundscapes”.
tipton has performed for ACRN many times over the years, including at last year’s Lobsterfest.
“I love playing in Athens, so I’m almost exclusively going to be playing a brand new, never-heard-before album I’m working on that is very dark. Just be ready to get spooky, weird and emotional!” tipton said.
Don’t spend this chilly Saturday evening indoors bummed out by the weather. Instead, come to Galbreath Chapel on College Green to rock out with the great performers along with the rock lobsters. Doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $5.
