Tonight in Athens: Amy Godwin, Peach Kelli Pop

If you need a dose of live music to take the edge off this dreary Monday, there are two shows this evening particularly worthy of your time. First, at the Caledonia Lounge, enjoy a terrific triple-bill headlined by E6 comeback kids Circulatory System, who will release a long-awaited third LP, Mosaics Within Mosaics, this summer. Along with Drag City psych-folk duo New Bums (read our feature on that band here), the openers include Atlanta-based songstress Amy Godwin, whose ghostly, loop-based ukelele-and-voice compositions offer an earthier local counterpoint to artists like Julianna Barwick:

Over at Green Room, the vibe will be markedly more energetic from the start, with SoCal garage-pop gals Peach Kelli Pop rounding out a bill that also includes sonic compatriots and ampersand-obsessed locals Nate & the Nightmares and Timmy & the Tumblers.
