One of the most significant, yet often criminally overlooked, elements of what has made Athens music great is its pronounced appreciation and exploitation of the absurd. To this end, let us guide you toward the celebration of the two-song release by Blanko happening Thursday at the Caledonia. It’s titled Sync in Progress 25%, and the whole thing is over in less than five minutes. It’s electronic and blippy party rock for parties that take place inside fishbowls, computer circuit boards, supply closets or any other claustrophobia-inducing place.
