Grouplove, Reptar

The four Georgia-bred boys in Reptar cut their teeth playing house parties in Athens, Ga., and that all-out sensibility in concert is their biscuits & gravy. But their tunes are far from country-fried; their sonic venturing meanders from African pop to post-punk to psychedelic. Producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Washed Out) caught the quintet in concert and, on the spot, offered himself up to help focus the band’s creative vision—their Facebook biography describes it as “Pacman eating handcuffs eating a pizza,” whatever that means—for their full-length debut. Body Faucet dropped May 1, and it demonstrates an incremental jump in maturity from the band’s wild Oblangle Fizz, Y’all! EP, but doesn’t compromise their quirky oddities—think Vampire Weekend minus the boat shoes, plus lots of vodka. Grouplove headlines the show. The State Room, 638 S. State, 8 p.m., $15
