Timi Conley and the Wonderland Rangers - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Timi Conley and the Wonderland Rangers
Celebrate Athens' beloved rocker and Rumpus-raiser, Timi Conley's Golden Birthday with the Wonderland Rangers' Album Release Party!

Timi has lived in Athens for a quarter century... In his time with us, Timi has given us the Wild Rumpus Parade & Spectacle, and Athens bands Fuzzy Sprouts, Aqualove, Trubblegum, Abbey Road Live, Pigs on the Wing, The Ziggy Stardust Bowie Tribute, Kite to the Moon, and now Wonderland Rangers (also ft. Shelley Lotus, Andrew Hanmer, Kevin Sims, Tony Oscar, and Chris Byron).

Their new record, Baby's Bread, recorded and mixed at Timi's Goldtraxx and Nuçi's Space's Amplify Studio, and mastered by Joel Hatstat Audio, is an essential document featuring 9 songs and 45 minutes of music shared between dear friends, written and recorded across from the Tree That Owns Itself, from 2015-present. It's a loose and expansive take on the fragrant, wild, and often lovely-and-dirty-at-the-same-time character of life in Athens and the Southeast, and existing on Planet Earth in this modern century.

A listen to this retro-power soul / space-rock / indie-pop record reveals what feels like a new Athens sound... peppery guitars, funky moog, deep bass, quirky cowbell and tambourine, and male/female vocal harmonies and raps overlaying dance-y kick+snare beats... A house party just down Nantahala Ave from Cosmic Thing, Southern Rock Opera, and Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?.... with nods to Funkadelic, Outkast, The Clash, Dee-Lite, Sly and The Family Stone, Neil Young, Pixies, Peter Gabriel, and Babe the Blue Ox. 99.9% Love with some added over-ripe flying fruit, and birthday cake shoved in the face by a hand with ruby-red fingernails, and tattoos of a unicorn and lightning bolts.
