LIVE IN THE LAB
Nicholas Mallis with special guests Convince the Kid & Nelward
Doors @ 8pm
Nelward @ 9pm
Nelward is an audio and visual artist. His music is broadly influenced art pop that takes cues from city pop, bubblegum, bedroom pop, new jack swing, and nu metal. He genre hops but the common thread is melody.
Convince The Kid @ 10pm
Convince The Kid is an Alt-Rock band out of Athens, Georgia. Dazzling 80’s style synths pitted against distorted guitars and heavy bass lines gives the band their signature sound. With the recent addition of Matt Brantley (Bass) and Vic Fischer (Drums) to their live shows, the songwriting duo Trevor Thrift (Synth, Vox) and Jeffrey Vernon (Guitar, Vox) is ready to take their performances to the next level.
Nicholas Mallis @ 11pm
Over the past seven years, Nicholas Mallis’ brand of weirdo pop and absurdist, over the top performances have been garnering him praise in Athens, Georgia and beyond. He has shared bills with indie pop greats like Dan Deacon and Kishi Bashi and even played as a side man in the solo efforts of Athens legends Cindi Wilson and Fred Schneider (The B-52’s).
In 2019, Nicholas released Artificial Irrelevance, a collection of glam pop songs that Flagpole Magazine referred to as “timeless.” After spending a year touring A.I., Nicholas quickly turned out another album (The Final Station) and was gearing up to tour the east coast again before COVID-19 hit in 2020. In Glide Magazine’s review, they state that Nicholas’ music “feels like it came from the late 70s or early 80s during the creative, left-of-the-dial burst in alternative music while also sounding fresh and original.”
