CCR Headcleaner, Wymyns Prysyn, Shade, Chore Boy

Former Athenians Justin Flowers and Alex Cargile comprise half of San Francisco sludge-punk ne’er-do-wells CCR Headcleaner, a band that enjoys posting grainy, gratuitous nude self-portraits to its Tumblr page and is equally adept at distended noise-trash anthems, ear-splitting pseudo-arena guitar solos and blissed-out psych-pop posturing. The group’s current “Dice In the Sky Tour” takes it through Athens in support of a new single-track record, Cokesmoker—the follow-up to 2013’s aptly, amazingly titled 2013: Lace The Earth With Arms Wide Open—out now via Stale Heat/Pollen Season. Atlanta noiseniks Wymyns Prysyn, Athens-based acid-pop crew Shade and new local project Chore Boy share the bill.

9 p.m. $5 (21+), $7 (18–20).
