What Moon Things, Muuy Biien, Deep State, Jackson Scott

New York doom-pop outfit What Moon Things has made Athens a second home, releasing their reverb-soaked, self-titled debut via local label Hot Grits Records and performing in town no fewer than 10 times over the past two years. Anyone who hasn’t yet caught the band’s terrific live set is urged to do so Friday, when they will appear alongside scuzzy local popsters Deep State and North Carolina psych singer-songwriter Jackson Scott. Rounding out this impressive bill is an increasingly rare performance from Muuy Biien, the beloved area punks who have slowly but surely transformed a once-explosive hardcore sound into something murkier and more nuanced.
