A staple of the local house-party scene at the turn of the decade, groove-pop four-piece Reptar broke onto the national stage with a 2012 debut, Body Faucet. Motoring past an infamously catty P4K takedown of that record, the band returned in 2015 with the eclectic, inspired Lurid Glow. Since frontman Graham Ulicny moved to Nebraska—where he’s a member of dance-punk mainstay The Faint—the band has been largely quiet, with members focusing on projects like Semicircle, Curt Castle, Double Ferrari and Neighbor Lady. Reptar celebrates its 10th anniversary with two Georgia shows: one at the Caledonia on Saturday, and another at Atlanta’s Terminal West on Sunday.
