Up-and-coming Costa Rican trio Las Robertas have made their mark on the American underground through recent appearances at grassroots gatherings like the Austin Psych Fest, treating U.S. listeners to a taste of the burgeoning Latin American garage-rock scene. The band’s music is laced with strains of pop, punk and psychedelia, as evidenced by its most recent album, Days Unmade, released in 2014 and reissued last year on cassette via venerable indie imprint Burger Records. Las Robertas swing through Athens Thursday evening to play the highest-elevated venue in town alongside locals Eureka California and Atlanta-based indie-popsters Omni.
