WHAT YOU DESERVE: The Scientists play April 20-21, celebrating the Earl's 20th anniversary.

Australian post-punk phenomenon the Scientists have been hailed as an influence by everyone from Sonic Youth to Nirvana, yet the group, which formed in Perth around 1981, remains an obscurity to most. After several years of inactivity, the group returned in 2018 to release the singles, “Mini Mini Mini” and “Braindead,” followed by this year’s EP, titled 9H20.SiO2 via In The Red Records. Now, the group's circa 1986 line-up featuring Kim Salmon, Tony Thewlis, Boris Sujdovic, and Leanne Cowie is together again, making their way across North America on their first proper U.S. tour

In honor of the Earl's 20th anniversary, the group plays two shows in East Atlanta, April 21-22. Vincas and GG King open the Saturday night show. Gentleman Jesse and the Subsonics open Sunday night.


 

$25. 8:30 p.m. Sat., April 20. With Vincas and GG King.
$25. 7:30 p.m. Sun., April 21. With Gentleman Jesse and Subsonics.

488 Flat Shoals Ave. S.E. 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com.
