Dinner Time, Heffner, Nicholas Mallis

HALFWAY DOWN: Chow down with Dinner Time in EAV on Sept. 8.
Friday September 8, 2023 09:00 PM EDT
Cost: $15.00
CRITIC’S PICK: The Athens and Atlanta music scenes sometimes go hand-in-hand, especially in the indie-rock field. I have no doubt this 529 bill will be a banger. Atlanta’s favorite indie soft rock outfit,Dinner Time, is known for their moody soundscapes and trippy ‘60s and ‘70s-influenced production style, perfectly exhibited on their sophomore album from 2021, Halfway Down. Their smooth, dance riffs and deep guitar and vocal tones provide for a very fun listening experience, sure compliment Athens’ Heffner and Nicholas Mallis. Heffner isn’t unlike Dinnertime in their trippy indie style, but their alternative rock sound is what makes them stand out. Heffner started making waves in Athens back in 2020 with their debut single, “You Don’t Even Know Him,” and have since not only grown in sound, but also in members. Their 2022 album Perfect Heaven is full of softer, more intimate guitar-driven tunes like “Close Enough” and harder hitting songs like “Tough Questions” that are reminiscent of their first, self-titled album. Nicholas Mallis is an Athens artist known for his “weirdo pop” songs. Mallis has an experimental, electro-pop sound that makes you want to dance. His lyricism matches his chaotic energy and his live performances are no exception. Don’t miss these three acts at 529 Sept. 8.  — Jessica Goodson
