COLORBEARER OF ATHENS, GEORGIA LOCALLY OWNED SINCE 1987
December 21, 2016

Group Grope, Housefire, Doom Ribbons, Hive of Wires, Sponge Bath

Wednesday, Dec. 21 @ Go Bar

Housefire

If you’ve been sitting around the house thinking, “Gee, I sure do wish I could squeeze in a little live hard-house, techno and destructo noise with a bent toward traditional industrial before Christmas Day”—well, you're in luck. Local acts Group Grope, Doom Ribbons and Hive of Wires will host and play with North Carolina's Housefire and Sponge Bath on Wednesday at Go Bar. It sure sounds like one huge cliché to say “expect the unexpected,” but dive into this show with an open mind and a closed fist, and we can pretty much guarantee that you'll get out more than you put in. DJ Other Voices, Other Rooms will spin in between sets.
