Believe it or not, it's been four whole years since the release of Guarantees, the impressive debut album from Athens mood-rockers Grand Vapids. That record, which Flagpole's Andy Barton called "an album of sheer beauty, featuring a dense wall of guitars and a chugging rhythm section," received praise from regional and national outlets and established the foursome as a Classic City band to watch.

As the leader of Athens band Kenosha Kid, guitarist Dan Nettles has spent well over a decade exploring the cosmic intersection of jazz, post-rock, jam and improv composition.

A graduate of the Music Business Program at UGA and former frontman of Athens band Son & Thief, Shane gave a shoutout to the Georgia Theatre, where he interned before graduating.
