A fixture on the late-’90s and early-aughts Athens scene, psychedelic pop-rockers The Eskimos have been on again/off again for the past decade-plus. The group’s on the comeback trail, having recorded a brand-new LP titled There Is a Light… with Drew Vandenberg at Chase Park Transduction, which it plans to release later this year. Attendees of Thursday’s World Famous show, which also features Nicholas Mallis & the Borealis, will receive a free copy of The Eskimos’ new 7-inch, featuring a synth-y power-pop tune from the new record, “Surf’s Down.” As a righteous bonus, original Gang of Four drummer Hugo Burnham will spin a DJ set—as the aptly named Gang of One—after the bands play.
