Reptar opening for Matt & Kim at the Trocadero next week

leave a comment »

Even though the Matt & Kim show has been sold out for quite a while now, I still wanted to give the opening band, Reptar, a shout out. They’re a four piece dance-pop band from Athens, Georgia. Like most bands from the small Southern city, they have a very unique style to them. Kinda like of Montreal, but not that strange. They also had the opportunity to work with producer Ben Allen(Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley) on a few songs including the one available for download below.

The last time Reptar played in Philly was when they opened a show at the Danger Danger Gallery for TJ Kong & the Atomic Bomb and The Armchairs. It’s good to see the band making their way up the ranks where they’ll be opening for Matt & Kim at The Trocadero next week(05/31). So if you have tickets to the show, make sure you get there early.
