Nana Grizol, Mind Brains

An enduring vestige of Athens’ early-aughts folk-punk scene, DIY-circuit favorite Nana Grizol remains one of the underground’s hardest-working bands. Led by songwriter Theo Hilton, formerly of local posi-scuzz outfit Zumm Zumm, the group is known for its wordy, melodic, personal-political anthems. On the tail end of a two-week tour, Nana Grizol follows up a recent show at the Slingshot Festival with another Athens gig. This time it’s out at Orange Twin, which recently hosted its first show in three years, when Neutral Milk Hotel performed. Let’s hope this summer will continue to be busier than usual for the utopian concert venue.

7 p.m. $10 ($25 w/ camping).
