Thayer Sarrano, Athens Cowboy Choir, Etienne de Rocher

A rock show at Seney-Stovall is always cause for celebration (who else remembers those gorgeous, apocalyptic Sunn O))) shows of 2009?), but Athens singer-songwriter Thayer Sarrano will up the ante by making the location home base for the release party of her long-awaited new album, Shaky. The record’s lush, moody Southern shoegaze is aesthetically in line with the venue’s gothic grandness, and should sound lovely in such a wide-open space. Also on the bill, the Athens Cowboy Choir makes a welcome return, and guitarist Etienne de Rocher will kick the night off with a set of his imaginative, guitar-based pop.

7 p.m. $15 (suggested donation).
