Experimental Mondays Series Continues Tonight at The World Famous

The local experimental scene has experienced a dramatic rebirth over the past year or two—this feature from last April provided a general overview of said rebirth. Since that article’s publication, Athens’ underground has continued to explode, new noise, drone and otherwise uncategorizable acts popping up like shapeshifting flowers throughout the local music landscape.

Two ongoing concert series have emerged of late, both designed to showcase Athens’ experimental underground. At Hendershot’s, a series of Sunday night shows has featured acts like Motion Sickness of Time Travel and Angel Brown—the next, slated for Apr. 20, features Scab Queen, Royal Futility and Entropicodone.

Looking ahead in local noise happenings, touring legends Pedestrian Deposit will perform at a to-be-determined venue May 23. Meanwhile, each Monday in April The World Famous is hosting a similarly themed evening of music, curated by Madeline Hassett of Tonda.

Tonight (Apr. 14), the latter series continues with sets from anti-pop warriors Future Ape Tapes, the garage-leaning Strays and drone project Aprotag. Doors are at 9 p.m., and admission costs $3. Check the Facebook event page for more info.
