Cost: $10+
CRITIC’S PICK: The Hensleys are Atlanta’s newest psych-punk foursome. Just last month they released their first music video for their latest single, “Midsummer.” These moody punks have been playing all over town recently and making fans everywhere they go. Their debut EP releases Sept. 1 on all platforms. I have no doubt it’ll have just as many funky riffs as relatable themes on it. Also on this Buteco bill is Athens’ beloved CannonandtheBoxes. Front-person Cannon Rogers is someone everyone in the indie folk/rock scene seems to love, not only for his songwriting/guitar/pedal steel ability, but also for his infectious personality. Rogers and his boxes have been known for their folky rock sound since their first releases in Athens back in 2019 and more recently their 2021 album The Wonder Years. Since graduating from the UGA Music Business Program, Rogers has not only advanced musically but also stylistically, constantly experimenting and trying new things with his music. C&tB’s newest album High Life dropped early this month and is everything we needed from them. With hits like “Classic City Celebrity and “Pastel Houses,” High Life’’ highlights the band’s natural folky sound while also giving us indie and alternative rock undertones. The album even features a cover of Steve Earle’s “Transcendental Blues.” This is definitely not a show you want to miss. — Jessica Goodson
