Tonight in Athens: Television, Tera Melos

To say that tonight’s Television show at the Georgia Theatre is a big deal is an understatement. It’s one of three U.S. appearances the legendary NYC rockers will make this year, the other two being a stop Tuesday in San Francisco—view the setlist from that show here—and another at Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest.

This will be a special gig. Though they’re absent one key cog in founding guitarist Richard Lloyd, as you can see from the video below, these dudes are still quite capable of bringing the fire.

If you weren’t lucky enough to grab a ticket to that sold-out show (though rumor has it there are still a few tix floating around out there in the ether), console yourself with a pretty damn exciting show over at New Earth, where Sacramento rockers Tera Melos will dazzle your ass with a pyrotechnic display of noisy, mathy power.
