This is a past event.

Reptar, Quiet Hooves, Adventure Galley 

When: Fri., March 2, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $12
Were it not for the current synth craze, I have a feeling the members of Reptar would be traveling around Africa, making their way as cheery anthropologists of indigenous music. Instead, the quartet has harnessed their love for world music to the power of the electronic keyboard, creating a high-energy pastiche for the masses to dance to. This obviously makes them enormously happy, something they find impossible to disguise in their songs. And why should they? Graham Ulicny's reggae-style vocals weave among abundant layers of percussion, loops, backing vocals and, of course, keys. Their debut album, Body Faucet, is produced by Ben Allen, who's also responsible for producing records by Animal Collective and Gnarls Barkley. It isn't out till May 1, but that's okay—Reptar is meant to be heard live. Their raucous shows have become the stuff of legend in their hometown of Athens, Georgia. REBECCA WILSON
