Get yer garage on Saturday at Green Room, where two of Athens’ finest noisemaking outfits will perform. The VG Minus, which consists of townie mainstays Paul Walker, Michelle McClure and Kurt Wood, will deliver high-octane proto-punk; Nate & The Nightmares, a group fronted by Wuxtry employee Nate Mitchell and including members of noise maniacs Free Associates, will play a “scorching set of garage-punk bitterness.” Before, in-between and after the bands, a couple of fellas well versed in the art of record collecting will spin their favorite tunes. Asheville, NC resident Greg Cartwright, a veritable rock legend best known for founding the Memphis trio the Oblivians (and, more recently, for his work with The Reigning Sound), will appear. He’ll be joined by Wood, whose vast stash of vinyl is a thing of local legend.
