Ceiling Fan, Pilgrim, Jay Gonzalez, Los Cantares

After a long hiatus, Athens-based indie rock favorites Ceiling Fan resurfaced at AthFest 2013 with a memorable main-stage performance. Since that time, the group has continued to appear on the scene sporadically, playing shows here and there and releasing the Survival EP—the band’s first recorded output in nearly a decade—in summer 2014. Amidst an otherwise barren concert landscape the week after Christmas, you can enjoy a set of Ceiling Fan’s taut, hooky guitar-pop at the 40 Watt, where they’ll be joined by songwriter Paul McHugh’s raucous Pilgrim, as well as pop classicist Jay Gonzalez and psych-dipped supergroup Los Cantares.
