Elijah Johnston, Annie Leeth, Lane Marie

Athens-based emo singer-songwriter Elijah Johnston will play a record release show at the 40 Watt on Thursday to promote his newest album, Strangers. The album is set to drop Jan. 9, but fans can preorder it on Bandcamp and get three tracks ahead of its release, including the hook-filled “Find Your Bliss.” Thursday’s show will feature support from special guests and Athens locals Annie Leeth and Lane Marie. Leeth is an experimental violinist and singer-songwriter who, like Johnston, is celebrating a new release. Her seven-track album Mortal was made available Dec. 6. Marie is a synthpop artist who creates music she describes as “boundaryless.”
